Rated 5 out of 5 by oconnell Best skirt I own for daily use
This is the best summer skirt I own - it dresses up for work and goes casual for afterward. The fit is perfect. The little zipper pocket in front is also ideal. I highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYBeanieBaby Comfortable, Casual, Good Length
I have this in the blue pine (teal) and black colors. I wear them both frequently and often get complements on them. The fabric is light and perfect for spring/summer wear. The skirts are comfortable and casual, but I can get away with wearing them to work as an educator by pairing them with appropriate tops/cardigan sweaters. The length is great for someone with longer legs (I'm 5'8"); I've had to return other LLBean skirts because they were just too short to be practical. This one is falls just above my knee. The cut/fit is perfect for an athletic build and has nice detailing such as a small, zippered pocket for essentials. I have traveled with this skirt and they pack well.
This skirt is a keeper - additional color options (e.g. navy) would be great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TurkanaGirl Lovely fabric & drape; a bit longer than expected
The fabric feels lovely - supple, perfect weight, and the drape is wonderful. No panty lines show thru! I love the little hem stitch at the bottom and the waistband is nicely done. As a frequent traveler I have an eagle eye for materials that will wrinkle or catch lint, and this fabric looks like it will avoid both! As far as fit goes, I will have to do an exchange. I am 5'7", but short in the torso with long upper legs. I usually take an 8 in jeans, so I ordered a Regular Medium originally. The skirt hem hits me in the lower part of the knee which is not so flattering. So I'm going to exchange for a Petite Medium which is 2 inches shorter and should therefore hit the top of the knee. But I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of this - would love to see Bean offer it in a wider array of colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyBr Perfect little skirt
Got this skirt on a whim because of the price. I thought who couldn't use a lightweight little skirt for the summer. I find I'm wearing it all the time. It truly can be worn very casually with flipflops or completely dressed up with heels, looks perfect either way. True to size, I wear a large in LLBean clothes and a large in this fits perfectly. Comes out of the dryer wrinkle free and ready to wear. I'm guessing this is being discontinued based on the lack of sizes, so I'm on line to purchase another black as a backup. Wish there were more colors, I'm not crazy about the pine blue one, at least with my wardrobe. Oh, I'm 5'4", and the petite hits me about 2 inches above the knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EclecticCanadian Perfect for me -- SO versatile!
I am 5'-2" and about 130lbs; I purchased the petite medium in black, and it fits like a dream. My small waist, compared to my full hips, makes it difficult for me to find skirts that fit well, and this fits the bill. The side seams are slightly shaped over the hips and thighs, which is perfect for my curvy body; I have a "menopausal stomach" area and this skirt makes it completely un-noticable.
The fabric is very comfortable, and the black fabric is not flimsy to me. It's exactly how I want a knit fabric skirt to be weight-wise and stretch-wise. The length is just above my knees, in a very flattering spot. I can wear my boots with it, and I've tried it on with sandals in hopes of summer coming soon, and it looks great with either. I've worn it with knit tops and tshirts, as well as with dressier, but still casual loose blouses.
I especially like the little hidden pocket at the waistband. It is completely invisible except for the discreet zipper pull.

Rated 1 out of 5 by texashayseed thin and flimsy
Not for me. The skirt was okay for one wear but after washing just looked like a wrinkled worn gym outfit. I won't wear it again even after ironing. Bought it on a sale so not worth sending back but bad purchase for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phrelanzer My Go-Everywhere Skirt
This little black skirt takes me everywhere from business meetings to dinners out to church on Sunday morning. It pairs well with tights and boots in the winter, and looks good with flats in the summer. I now own two of them in black! (The blue isn't my taste). There is a zipper pouch inside the skirt but I never use it. It washes well, and I roll it up to pack it for travel -- it weighs almost nothing, takes up very little space, and shakes out with hardly any creasing. I would love to see L.L. Bean offer this versatile skirt in more color choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovetohikeAcadia This skirt is absolutely perfect!
I purchased this skirt at the Flagship store in Freeport in June, and it has been the most versatile skirt I have found in a long time! I am 5'9", and wear a size 12- my waist is tapered and I have a difficult time finding skirts. Usually skirts that fit my hips are huge in the waist. This skirt fits perfectly, thank goodness! I was so excited to find this awesome skirt, so I purchased two! I want to order the blue now, as I know it will be a wise purchase. I have worn my new skirts constantly, and they are so comfortable! They can be worn casually, or dressed up with the right blouse. I am a teacher, so this skirt is perfect to wear to school, and it looks very nice! Thanks for creating a perfect skirt, LL Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Texasllbean Wonderful!
It's lightweight...feels great...
was a little in between sizes...Large way too big and way too long...
so opted for the medium which is a little snug but, oh well!
Haven't laundered it yet but I can feel it will be my " live in all summer long" skirt!
Might need two!
