The Kmart skirt has received praises on social media sites, with shoppers saying they will seek out the item on their next visit.

“I want this,” one commented.

“Love it,” another wrote.

Those who bought the item also left rave reviews. Australian fashion blogger Tina Abeysekara said she recently bought the skirt.

“$18 silky satin midi. Feels fantastic, no wonder there was barely any left,” she shared on her Instagram account on Tuesday morning.

Another woman wrote, “I couldn’t resist picking this skirt up from [Kmart] yesterday. $18 and it’s super cute!”

If you've got your heart set on adding this skirt to your wardrobe, you will have to head in to your local Kmart store. Unfortunately, the skirt has not been made available for online purchase on Kmart’s website.
