Women's Anytime Casual™ Skort is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everyday skort I like this skirt. The fit is good. Only concern is the ties that hang on sides. I would have given item 5 stars but the ties are a little uncomfortable. May just need to get use to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Color and Fit! This is the most comfortable and fashionable skort I own (and I have several from other major brands). The length is perfect and it looks nice enough for office casual if you pair it with a blouse. Perfect for summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for tall girls! I wanted a longer swim skirt to wear to the pool, but I am 5'10" so all normal bathing suit skirts are really short on me. This skort is just perfect! Long enough to feel comfortable going anywhere, not just the pool. Hits about 4-6" above my knees. Very pleased and can't wait to wear it this summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I love this skirt. Super Comfortable and looks good. I can wear to work, golfing, hiking or pretty much any activity. Nice pockets. You can wear leggings underneath and it all works. Fits good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite skirt ever! I absolutely love this skirt! It is so comfortable and classy and still maintains a chic and flattering silhouette. I bought one in every color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most comfortable skort I love skorts. Whilst I enjoy dressing like a lady, I'm not very good at behaving like one. Therefore skorts are just about perfect summer wear. My only tiny complaint is the drawstrings. They tickle my legs and feel like creepy crawlies. They are a cute style idea but not terribly practical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute and comfortable To start with, I love a skirt with hidden shorts plus some pockets. I do wish this skirt's pockets were more secure, but they're better than no pockets. I got the skirt in "red"—not a true red, alas, but it's nice to expand my fashion palette a bit. I love a short skirt that also manages to be comfortable, which is very much helped by the wide waistband and the secret shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my trip to Asia! I purchased this skort after reading travel blogs about how to deal with the heat and humidity in Southeast Asia. I honestly cannot say enough about the comfort of this wardrobe staple I wore it every single day of my two week trip and it was the hottest temperatures I have ever experienced and it held up to every activity that we did and I always felt more put together than with traditional cotton shorts. I will definitely be ordering more colors for future adventures

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy Skort This is a favorite for when I'm going out to run errands, and for an evening at the tiki bar for cocktails.... it is a little longer than some other Columbia skorts I have and I like that is has no buttons no zippers..just pull on. The waist band is wide and stays in place and the material of the skort is very soft to the skin and touch. I always like the adjustable side strings, so I can choose to be conservative with a little more coverage or sexy with the sides pulled up!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sooo comfortable i have decided i'm going to live in skorts this summer! i found this item in a store and tried it on, but i found a better deal on it ordering thru columbia. i like it so much i bought it in another color. now i have black and light gray which will go with everything. the wider waistband holds in what i don't like around my waistline and the length is both perfect and cute with the drawstrings on either side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I have wanted this skort for several years, and finally broke down and bought it! It will be perfect for summer days, plus the days where I will go from fishing directly into public. It fits perfectly.
Date published: 2017-03-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and flattering I purchased this skirt in Light Grey and Sunset Red. I had tried it on in store, so I already knew it was true sizing. It has a great length, not to short, which is important to me as I wear them to compete at Disc Golf and they look cute yet professional. Comfortable, smooth waistband sits fairly high, which I like because I don't have to fuss with it when I am moving around! Might buy more in the other sizes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait to use this skort! Have not used this yet, but plan to use it for some beach outings this vacation season. Absolutely love the fit and feel of this skort. I weigh about 170 and got a large and it fits perfect. Great length too. It came about 4, 5 inches from my knees. Just buy it!
Date published: 2017-02-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect addition to my active wear I am in love with these skorts! I ordered two after seeing a client wearing one. I thought it would be perfect for a trip I'm taking. I was looking for something to wear while taking tours that may call for us to hike some while also stopping for lunch. These Look adorable and extremely functional.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skort I really loved this skort, but the ties come out after a few washes. Disappointed that it didn't last - because it was a favorite!
Date published: 2017-01-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for warm weather! I bought this skirt looking for something to wear in the warmer months that would be just as comfy as my running shorts but look more put together (think concerts at the local park, running errands around town or even a short unplanned hike!). However it came in handy this past weekend when we had snow and single digit temps and needed a layer over my running tights to keep my bum warm and dry on a run and playing in the snow. Didn't have a problem with the shorts bunching but I dont think they will be a substitute for running without the tights. The build of the shorts is more active-casual than long run/race worthy. Still a great purchase! Looking forward to wearing it in warm weather without the tights!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit I'm 5'2" and a size 7/8... the medium fit perfectly in length and waist. I can't wait to use it on the golf course :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great skort - but could use improvement... I have this and another skort from Columbia. I also bought this for a gift for my friend and we both agree - these skorts would be AMAZING if they had one additional feature: the silicone on the inside of leg band to keep it from riding up. Please, please, Columbia, add this one teeny feature to your skorts! I saw other reviews noting the same issue. I have an Eddie Bauer skort that does have the no-ride shorts and they are fabulous.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Where are the shorts???? I bought these to avoid chafing. The shorts were not tight enough to stay down on my thigh. They rolled up, became uncomfortable, and I constantly had to reach up and pull down the shorts on my legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skort I love this skort. It is perfect for kayaking, walking, or even as swim bottoms for those who want a bit more coverage. Very comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Skort Great skort but the panties are a bit small and I am thin and definitely a "Medium" so they need to correct this. A large would be too big.
Date published: 2016-07-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this skort! Very figure faltering with the cinched draw string sides. Also it has pockets a plus for me! I have gotten many complements. I purchased 4 in different colors I love it so much. It is so comfortable! I wear it with dress heals as well as walking shoes, you can dress it up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks nice and great comfort- Nice color. Bought to wear for summer golf and love the side pockets for tees and markers. The length is good the comfort is also good. Summer mornings at the coast can be foggy and a bit wet. This skort wicks away the moisture and drys well. I also travel (by car) 200 miles a couple of times a month and find these travel well and offer good driving comfort. Nice to pop out of the car after the drive and feel dressed up enough for a casual lunch or appointment. Pack well for overnight. The draw string is a nice touch. Got blue too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skort! This skort is great for hiking or any sport activity really. It's comfortable, the material is really nice and the shorts underneath has a good length.
Date published: 2016-07-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime casual skort Love it. It has a nice comfortable fit and fabric. The length is great and the waistband can accommodate your waist and avoid that awful muffin type that some of us dread. I have two sizes in a medium and large in two different colors. Like both sizes and colors. The medium fits spot on and the large hangs off my waist a little lower. Only complaint would be that the shorts underneath don't stay put.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go For It I love, love, love this skort! It is cute and comfy, and goes great with my Columbia Tamiami shirts! I work outdoors in a hot, dusty climate, but we are not allowed to wear shorts...this skort is my workaround! Very light, and has nice roomy pockets. I got black to start with, but am planning to get at least one more color! Fit is great, and the waist is not at all squeezy or pinchy, so if you are a little squishy around your middle (like I am), it is still quite flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great quality I bought this item for playing golf. Light weight and comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for golf I wanted this skort for golf. I live in the south and tend to sweat a lot and in very unflattering places. Although the built-in shorts got wet, the sweat did not show on the outer skirt. The stretch and cut are perfect for golf movements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy One in Each Color This is a great skirt for casual hiking or wearing to church. It's comfortable, fits nice and looks terrific.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color Issue I was disappointed in the color "everblue". It does not look like the color online. The color online looks more like a cobalt blue. The actual blue of the skort is entirely different than what is pictured online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skort you won't be disappointed I love this skort and the colour selection is great I have 4 different colours. The only complaint I have is that I had to come to the American web site to get the great colour selection. I don't know why Columbia only sells half the colour selection to Canadian market on there products that is available to the American market. That's my only complaint I have of Columbia and this product. One review talked about the inner short riding up, I've never found that a problem but maybe it has to do with the shape of her leg that is causing this rare problem. This skort wears beautifully and washes up like a dream. It looks great on young and old. I bought a pair for a friend as well and she loves them, looks great in them and she is in her mid 60's. This skort is great for any activity and is easily dressed up. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best skort you will find anywhere Both a friend I bought these skorts, they fit perfectly. The inner short will never runs up your leg or show itself when you sit down. They look great on young and old. My friend is in her mid 60 and loves them so I speak from experience on her behalf. The color mix Columbia has put out this year is a fantastic mix. They fit so well that you can do any activity wearing this skort and never be disappointed. I would definitely recommend this skort to friends and family

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have three of these and love them! So versatile and comfortable I wear one almost everyday I am not at work. My only minor complaint is the ties at the hem do not stay tied. I would prefer a bungee style tie. If they make more colors, I will buy them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect skort Just love this skort, it's perfect really anywhere. Traveling hiking laying by the pool lake or beach. I love the drawstrings on the sides great when you want to adjust the length. Would love it in white.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shorts under skirt ride up constantly! I am really disappointed in Columbia's skorts. I am an Oregon native who moved to Florida last year. I travel all over the world and I rely on my Columbia wardrobe when I do. I have worn Columbia for years. Love their products but the skorts don't work! I bought one last year and loved it except for the shorts underneath the skirt. Have to pull it down constantly! So annoying! I tried three different kinds of skorts this year and have returned two already and now getting ready to return two other designs I decided to try. I have been working on the one I bought last year adding rubberized elastic to the shorts. That really works! At the price I paid and the reputation of Columbia I shouldn't have to reconstruct the product. Besides Columbia running on the small size, I love all their other products. Quality made and last for years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skort! Comfortable, cute on, I will wear this all of the time! S/P was perfect. I am 5ft 2in, 120lbs. Nice alternative to shorts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great skort for active lifestyle Figure flattering multi purpose skort. Running errands, out to lunch, hiking - it works. It was little short for someone my age (57) and height 5'8". The inside shorts ride up on me and so I am constantly tugging them down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute skirt, super soft I bought this skirt in bright geranium. The color is a little more pink than it appears on screen, but not too pink. It's a little sheer but not too much. I love that you can pull the sides to make it more sporty or pull them down for casual days at work --- depending on your job. It fits true to size. Im petite and it fits me well above the knee.
