I am happy to review this skirt. I'm almost embarrassed to say that I have 5 in various colors. I wear them all summer with t-shirts and all winter with leggings and sweaters. I don't know what I would do without them. They wear and wash incredibly well with little or no signs of wear after years. The flare at bottom and pockets make it interesting and it is a very flattering skirt. And, the best part is that I hardly ever wear them without people stopping me to ask where I got the skirt.

I bought this dress for my daughter for Christmas. She is a world traveler and wanted a dress that was stylish and packed nicely without wrinkling. Bought it in the blackberry color and she loves it. She told me she has worn it on a couple of occasions and has gotten many compliments on it. I received the usual Zappos wonderful service, so I am very pleased with my purchase.

This is just a really cute dress! It is well made, comfortable, and nice looking - I get many complements on it. I wear it as a long top over thick tights or stretch pants. I never buy the same item in a different color, but think I will make an exception and purchase one in the other color as well. I am 5'8", about 165 pounds and the medium fits nicely leaving enough room for a couple more pounds, yet still fitting enough.

Absolutely, hands down, this will be your favorite skirt! The price is well worth it. I get compliment after compliment and this style can be worn year round! I like it so much that I've bought '4' of them, all different colors of course. Easy to take care, which is always a bonus.

Gave this to my wife for Christmas and she loved it. Found it to be soft to the touch and comfortable. Ran slightly small in size.

I washed this sweater once, in a net bag on gentle, cold water. I ran it in a warm dryer for about ten minutes then hung it flat on a rack to dry. It looked fine but the next time I wore it the sweater pilled like no sweater I have ever owned. It left countless pills stuck to my white shirt underneath, and on the pants I wore; a real mess. It was embarrassing and certainly not what I expected from a 78.00 sweater. It's unwearable. I did not buy it on this website, I bought it in a small store in NJ. I emailed the company several weeks ago, but have gotten no response.

The looks and style are great. I am happy with the color too. What I did not like at all was the material. It has some component of wool, but to the touch it mostly feels like cheap acrylic. It is a ripoff at this price to sell acrylic and other synthetic materials in a cardigan like this. Unfortunately you can't tell anything about the materials from the pictures and I also bought the item as a gift, so it was not returnable either.

I love this vest and have worn it several times since it arrived. Great fit, love the fabric, and it has a secret zippered pocket inside one of the hand pockets for valuables. There was a little tag to point out the secret pocket or I would not have known. I plan to get this vest in black, too. Highly recommend!

Fantastic everyday skirt! When you're looking for a black skirt online, it can be hard to sift through all the millions of choices. This one was a home run for me. The shape is flared enough to give it a little personality, without being too flouncy. And although I'm usually trying to hide my midsection, I liked how this style was fitted through the hips -- turned out to be much more flattering than I would have thought. By the way, if you like this shape but want something dressier, Zappos also has a great BCBG MaxAzria Ingrid A-Line skirt that's similar in style (just order up 1 size) but in a heavier, silkier fabric. Got them both and love them!

Great styling, fit (L) and length. The material and color are quality! Love the high neck for warmth. This is a great alternative to a regular, boring fleece vest.

This looks warm and comfortable in the picture, but the quality is very poor. I would compare the yarn to burlap -- thin and scratchy -- and there were holes where the knitting was coming apart. Shockingly bad for such an expensive sweater. Returned.

I love this coat! It is a good neutral with enough details to keep it interesting. I especially love that the pockets on the front have openings on the top and side (with a truly invisible zipper for the side opening).

I bought these shorts for a 3 week trip to Thailand. They are perfect: they dry quickly, the cut is flattering, and the pockets are well engineered. There are 2 angled pockets with velcro in the front, I felt safe with a few things in my pocket wandering around a busy market in Chiang Mai. I washed them in the hotel and hung them outside to dry- they dried fairly quickly. Sometimes shorts have side pockets that pop open or the back gapes and sits away from the body - because they are cut for someone who doesn't have a waist and hips. These shorts fit my waist and my hips and I was very pleased. I was a little nervous they might look matronly or middle aged, but they were great.

I absolutely love this sweater. I had a similar Royal Robbins cardigan for about 10 years and it's finally looking too pilled to wear. I love the wide collar and the interesting variegated yarn, and the side zipper is very modern. The only thing I don't love is that there is an extra layer of sweater in the front that lays underneath, which is the last place I need an extra layer as I'm trying to look thin. I would recommend sizing down if you're not sure what size to get. The yarn is tolerable but slightly itchy so I'll probably layer a long sleeved shirt underneath. For reference, I'm a 32C and 5'9" and I chose the XS. Going from the tag in the neck to the seam, it's 24" long in size S, and 23" long in the XS.

I've been wearing Royal Robbins shorts for years. They are clearly the best. It's disappointing that the color choices have diminished over these years; however, the quality has remained excellent.

The material and draping on this shirt was nice but the shirring at the midsection made me look a bit rounder in the tummy than I actually am (I'm 5'11", 170 lbs, 34DD with a fairly flat tummy). This may not be bad, as I had to size up to L for the bust/shoulder to fit well, so if you have a smaller bust and can go with a size that will fit better around the stomach, then I think this shirt will be quite flattering. I really liked the cowl neck and the dark red is a beautiful color.

These shorts fit great,but they seem to be irregulars. The inside seam was about an inch shorter than the outside seams.

I have worn Royal Robbins pants for years. I have always loved the high quality fabrics and sturdy construction. The RR styles have always been cute, unique, flattering and sensible. The fit has always been perfect -- I'm always the same size in RR. But this pant is a little different. I like the fabric -- a nice departure from denim or corduroy, and the shade of tan is just right. But the material is lighter gauge than I've come to expect from RR. The sizing is off -- for the first time I had to take a larger size only to find they were then a little large in the waist. The waist itself sits slightly lower than the usual RR cut. In fact the whole cut is a little too sexy for RR. I could have lived with these pants to this point, but then the deal breaker came: the leg openings are too flared. It's not so noticeable on the model and it's not mentioned in the description. I'm not really looking for flared legs, so I'm returning them. I wish I could redesign them a little.

Really disappointed in Royal Robbins and their changing sizes. I've noticed in the last 3 years some of their items match their size charts, and others are incredibly small, such as these pants - recommended to size up. These pants also are made of a fabric which things will stick to, so I am sending them back for too many reasons.

The fabric was gorgeous and very comfortable and the sizing seemed accurate. However, the asymmetrical neckline caused pulling at the left armpit area making it look tight only in that one location despite not actually being tight. Thus, I decided to return it. I hope to try another dress in this material and overall fit because it seemed like it would travel perfectly and be both comfortable and stylish.
