Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyersfan Cute and comfortable
I bought this skirt because I really like the feel and fit of the Southport Cargo Pants. The skirt is every bit as nice as the pants, I'm pleased to say. Fabric is soft but substantial, and has the slightest bit of stretch, very comfortable. The fit is good on me - I bought the size 12 - and I'm 5'9" tall, 150 lbs., 31' waist, 39' hips. It sits just below the waist and skims over the hips without being too loose or too tight. Even though I'm tall, the skirt's length is long enough so I can wear it to work (office-casual).
Some of the reviews say the cargo pockets are too small for an iPhone, I haven't tried to put my phone in yet, so I can't say whether it would fit. It wouldn't hurt the style if the pockets were a little bigger. All in all, this is a cute and comfortable skirt, and I think I will probably order another one in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Learner Flattering!
I'm 5'7" and weigh 170. I bought the size 16 and it is VERY flattering. The product description says "slightly fitted through hips and thighs", but for me it translated as "not a lot of extra material to make me look boxy". The soft denim is not stiff and boxy. I love it!

I like to pretend I'm Lauren Bacall on safari in this skirt. It's well-made, versatile, and timeless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by spudchick Easy to wear, could use a cell pocket
I've reviewed this item before, and while I still like the design of this skirt quite a lot--comfortable, fabric doesn't stick to skin in hot weather, good attention to storage--it might be nice to have at least one of the pockets be sized to accommodate modern cell phones a little better. I'm still hanging on to a pretty small Android model with a slideout QWERTY, and my phone barely fits in these pockets. Although I know a lot of women will be more concerned with keeping a slim silhouette than actually using the pockets, I specifically bought this skirt because I don't carry a purse. It would be nice to see more women's clothes with welt-type cell pockets. Adding a substantial one to this skirt, or changing the shape and size of at least one of the pockets to fit at least medium-sized phones, might be a nice change. I like that there are more colors to choose from this year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1JrzGrl Great anyday skirt
Really wasn't sure about this purchase -- but, when my items were delivered yesterday afternoon, I was SO pleasantly surprised to see the soft pink color ('Pink Beige'# of the fabric. The quality of workmanship is apparent. Fits as though it were made for me. #I'm 5'4" and weigh 120.# I also purchased the 'Cool Down Tops Tank' in 'Beach Rose', and it looks perfect with this skirt. Happy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by CountryGalLovesLLBean Square Cut
I tried 2 different sizes in this skirt and found both to be too confining around the knees. As pictured, this skirt is straight up and down meaning the bottom is the same width as the top. Did not work for me @ 5'4", 150 lbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BCPk Nice style
This skirt is very comfortable and stylish. One problem, the cargo pockets do not hold a smartphone. I have an iphone which is certainly not the biggest one. A lot of women like to go without a pocketbook when wearing a casual skirt like this. Another inch in the pocket would make a lot of difference. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by Runner68 Nice Skirt, Too Short for Me
I really like this skirt, but it's too short for my taste nowadays. I prefer skirts that hit below the knee and this hits above the knee. Aside of that, it's very comfortable and fit nice - I just wish it was two inches shorter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowpea Very useful and slimming
I was worried, given the side cargo pockets, that the skirt would enhance any problems in the thigh area. But in reality the skirt looks just like the photo, the pockets are flat. The waistband is forgiving enough that it is not snug.
I'm 5'11" and there was no "tall" to order so I just got the regular. It fits fine and at 21" is long enough for me.
