I wore this skirt for the first time today and got a compliment, was asked where I got the skirt. I washed before wearing, came out of the dryer ready to wear. I bought the falcon brown tapestry, a good neutral that can be worn with a variety of solid color tops. I'm 61, curvy, so I appreciate the not too short length and wide waist band. I also bought the Chachacha skirt in cocoa poppy, another beautiful print, but returned the skirt because it was too flared for my body type.

I have been happily wearing Toad&Co clothes for at least five years. Love their dresses. This summer, I went for skirts. Based on the five star reviews, I decided to give the chaka skirt a whirl - I purchased three different colors. The fabric quality and color is first rate. The cut is flattering. What I strongly dislike is the waistband. It bunches up under my shirt, I'm constantly repositioning it. I would not order more.

What a lifesaver to find this skirt when my over-40, genetically metabolically compromised weight is as variable as the weather. I love the simplicity of the A line, and the fabric is less clingy than other fusion/athleisure skirts I've purchased so I can wear it with or without tights, at work or trapsing around NYC without a fear of accidental exposure due to static cling incidents. It does wrinkle a bit, and I'm not sure how the fabric will fare long term in the wash, but I'm so thrilled with the classic look and comfort that I've immediately bought this on sale in other colors.

I carry most of my weight in my midsection and have never found a skirt that would sit at my waist without making me look bigger than I am. This skirt is extremely flattering sitting right at my waist, it stays up without digging in. The fabric is a little see-through in direct sunlight, but nothing too outrageous for summer clothes. I feel super confident in how I look in this skirt, will definitely buy again.

This is my go to skirt.. i can dress it up a bit for office wear, or down a bit for out on the town or around the home.. It is so soft and flows well. doesnt matter whether i am walking, sitting or standing it flatters the movement or lack of.. I can wash and hang on line or throw in drier for wash and wear results.. I am a size 6 and the medium fits well.. i tend to no tuck in my tops and will have to say this skirt allows my tops to hang softly over the top with no bunching or moving about.. Just perfect and now to pick out another color!! Great design,

I've had three of these in different colors for a couple years and I pretty much live in them nonstop for the summers. Just dressy enough for work but comfy for casual wear too. They are really great for travel since they squish up small and don't wrinkle. Just popped back into this website today to pick up two more in the new patterns.

Love the Chaka! I have two, and wear them constantly. Best for casual, but can be dressed up a bit. Summer with sandals, winter with leggings and boots. Samba fabric is my favorite - thin, but opaque and durable. Style is great, nice A-line. Length is very very frumpy - hits right at the top of the knees - wish it came in a shorter more modern length, but maybe my fault for having short legs. Wish there were some darker neutrals, since i don't usually wear "light 'n brights". Quality is great - I mistreat them, wear them out in the woods and to the hardware store, machine wash and tumble dry, and they've held up great. This skirt runs huge. For sizing reference, I'm about 5'4", 112 pounds, 26.5" waist, athletic build. Normally I wear S in most brands (M at stores for younger women). But for the Chaka, the XS fits me perfectly - I tried on the S and it was falling off.

Toad&Co Reply:

Thanks for your review. If you’re looking for a shorter version of the Chaka Skirt, check out the Lobelia Skirt or the Sereena Samba Skort in our Spring line (links below). They are both made of the same Samba fabric and have slight A-line shapes like the Chaka.

We will have a few darker neutrals for the Chaka coming out in our Fall 2016 line. We will also have another Samba skirt coming out then called the Sambossa Skirt. This skirt might check all your boxes! Check back in August for those new colors and styles!

I love this skirt so much, bought two colours and both are stunning. Would recommend to everyone. I am on the petite side of things so they are a little big for me, especially after a few wears. I really wish Toad&co made a xxs size as I would but everything then :-)

I love this skirt! It took me a while to find a skirt that could travel, go to work, or use hanging out on a day off. It's a wonderful, all around piece of clothing to have in your closet. I have in both black and brown and intend on buying again. I also get compliments on them.

Based on reviews I bought a small and found it a little too snug. Sent it back and am ordering a medium. I'm 5'2", 130 lbs., broad at the hip. The fabric is very soft. A little too thin for deep winter unless you wear tights underneath. Let's hope it doesn't cling.

I'm about 5'6'' and about 140lbs with a healthy amount of butt. This skirt is super flattering. It's just the right length to be both flattering and acceptable for work. It's soft and moves with me. And I now have it in two colors. I wear them all the time with and without leggings. I usually wear a medium in other brands, but small Toad&Co skirts seem to fit me best. The Chaka skirt in small is one of those.

I have never been much of skirt girl. They never seemed to fit right, too short (I am 6'1", an athletic 175), too tight, too frilly, too unforgiving...the list goes on. However, I live in Florida, and I just recently decided that I am tired of being so stinkin' hot in the brutal Southern summers. There has to be a better way. I found it! Chaka skirts are cool, easy to care for, travel well, don't wrinkle and are incredibly flattering. The waistband lays flat and gives a slimming, lean silhouette. I have a long torso, straight hips, wear the skirt low-medium fits perfect and hits just above the knee. I am very active and I wanted a skirt that was tough, could be lounged in, go on walks in, wear with tights and boots in winter, taken on a cruise, and yet be culturally appropriate for overseas travel. This skirt, for me, is all those things and more. I have no idea how I got by without this in my wardrobe. I am embarrassed to say I have at least 7 now! So pleased!

It is what they say it is. It works with flats, chunky boots, heels, and with any kind of top I put with it. It's dead easy to wear and looks good on. The construction is good. My only complaint is that the unlined skirt clings to tights and leggings. I fixed this by sewing a lining for knits into the skirt body, and now the garment is problem-free.

Made of comfortable material that doesn't wrinkle and is thick enough to not reveal all of your imperfections. The wide waistband lets you tuck in your shirt or leave it out, whichever works for that day. The length is perfect for the office.

A great fit once you get the right size. This skirt runs large -- I'm 5'6 and 165 pounds, and the large was falling off me (I normally wear a 12). The medium was perfect though, hugging in all the right places and giving my lower half a great shape.

"This skirt is IT. After I got it in Turkish coffee, immediately ordered another one in Black. Can wear this everyday with leggings in the winter and without in the warmer weather. Love the cut - just flirty enough to make me feel young & athletic (when I'm not so much!). Medium was a great fit on me - 5'7"", 145 lbs."

Bottom hem falls a few inches above the knee, calling for flats in the day and boots when the sun goes down. Made from Samba, our eco–responsible blend of Tencel® and organic cotton.
