This is a straight skirt, not pencil or A-line, in a medium-weight knit in an autumnal plaid. It will, depending on your height, hit you anywhere from mid-calf to ankle. It is unlined, but the fabric is soft and thick enough that a lining isn't necessary. The waistband is solid burgundy, and the whole skirt is nice and stretchy. Because it's straight, however, you might want to come try it on if you're wary of your mid-section. There are no pockets (boo), but otherwise, this is a great, really comfortable piece. Machine wash cold.
