Because everybody has a different preference as to where on their body a jean skirt rides - at the waist or lower. I do strongly recommend measuring for fit.
The easiest way to tell if a skirt will fit is to put a string the length of waist measurement around your middle. This will show you where the skirt will ride on your body. Do the same at the hips and check the length from waist.
Upcycled from a pair of Faded Glory jeans.
Because jeans do change size from laundering, besides varying enormously in size from brand to brand, I measure and size all skirts using a standardized chart.
Based on the body measurements in the size chart below, this skirt translates to a women's size 14.
If you are unsure, try comparing measurements to one of your own garments.
The skirt should be about 1" larger in the waist and 1-2" larger in the hips than your measurements. This difference is known as wearing ease and it allows you to breathe and move comfortably.
