Rated 4 out of 5Â by Meeb Yes this is short (as am I ) and yes I'm old but still this is a great little skirt. Pairing it with tights and flats made me a little more secure. it is comfortable and goes with a lot of things. The pattern in the skirt reminds me of Anthro clothes from way back when. It has that distinct look that only comes from here. I did wear it with sandals and the peplum ponte top and it got a lot of compliments. It really is a good transitional piece.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Salmonlady Bought it despite the length
I am 5'8" and 130 lbs, 26.5" waist, 36" hips and I bought this in a size 4, up one from my usual size 2 because I am very high waisted and wanted this to sit a bit lower to gain some length. The waist on this is the only measurement that matters because the hips are full. This is an extremely well-made piece for the price. The seaming of the various fabrics that make up the outer skirt is impeccably done, the fabric is nice and sturdy and thick, so the pleats hold their shape, the skirt is LINED and the zipper is well-sewn and works well. The price is fair for this piece (by Anthro standards...)
I love the colors, it goes with at least 4 or 5 tops in my closet and the print is adult and sophisticated.
My only reason for taking off one star is the length. I would really have liked to see another inch (or 3). But, by this point in the summer, I am more used to seeing my legs (vs. in the Spring when a skirt this length would have sent me running out of the dressing room screaming). I bought it despite its mini-status and am hoping that I can just be confident enough to pull off the mid-thigh length. It is not as short on me as the model-shot appears, maybe 4-5 inches above the knee, but still, it is short.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by saffronblossom Perfect Little Skirt
This is a great little skirt--the fortress/floral pattern is quirky without being overwhelming, and it could pair with many colors--mint, pink, navy, cream. Despite being almost a mini skirt (I'm 5'4". and it hit a few inches above my knees), it is a-line and didn't go straight down against my legs.
The skirt is lined and has pockets, and is made of a sturdy material that should wear well. It's also stiff enough to hold a tucked-in shirt well without allowing it to billow out. I took my usual 0, and it was a little loose, hitting below my natural waist. I can easily see this transitioning from summer with a cotton tee and wedges to winter with tights and a cardigan.
The only drawback is that it bunches weirdly in the front when you sit, because of the lining and pockets.
