Women's Anytime Casual™ Skort is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 182.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Piece of Clothing It’s flattering, the colors are great, it wears well, fits well, and works for skirt or short occasions. I have it in four colors and am in love with it. Seriously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and comfortable Love the fabric, and look of this item. Ordered it for safari, but have wound up wearing it almost weekly with cute tee shirts. The construction is high quality and fabric very comfortable. Has built in "slide-type" shorts under the skirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the classic look of this skort! The feel of the fabric, the look of the skort and the fact I can wear multiple ways (there are functional gatherings on each side) is a plus! This skort (skirt with attached shorts underneath) is great for weekend wear with a little pair of sandals or sneakers. I'm thinking of other colors I would like to get it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely my go-to for school, meetings, and hiking I have really been loving the Columbia sports wear that I have been buying, so as the weather warms here in the PNW, having a skort for hikes and around town is my favorite piece of clothing. I absolutely love this one. I normally wear a large, but with winter and school weight I upsized. I have gone from a solid 12 to a solid 14. The XL fits super comfortably, although it is a little generous in the waist but it does not slip and of course there are no muffins because of it. The shorts are thin and soft and you barely notice them. I would prefer if they didn't ride up, because I wear skorts specifically to avoid chafing in addition to sitting on the ground. That is my only complaint. But the shorts are so lightweight and soft that they don't bind at all. I am going to order a large and see if there is a big difference. Love this skort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect skort I love the skort. It fits perfect and it stays in place. My only draw back is the shorts on the inside feel short to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the skort, would like deeper pockets This skort is so comfortable. The waist band doesnt roll or bind, and the look is slimming. I only wish the pockets were deeper for a smart phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute when you try it on - but shorts ride up! Unfortunately, I am not one of those lucky women blessed with "thigh gap" - instead, I get "chub rub." While the skort is adorable and was flattering when I first tried it on when I walked outside the inside shorts kept riding up - making my thighs uncomfortably rub together and chafe. It's a shame because the price was so reasonable. I won't be wearing this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this skort! I will be wearing this all summer! Nice material and the inner shorts do not ride up like other brands I've tried. The waistband is comfortable and you can really move in this skort! For reference, I'm 5'9' 130 lbs. and purchased a size small. Normally a size 4 and the fit is perfect. Washes well, no issues!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this skort~ When I decided to move to Mexico, I was unsure what I would need. I brought shorts and several types of skorts. Now I own 3 of Anytime casual skort, and a couple of cColumbia dresses. I look pulled together regardless of the heat, rain, time of day. I love the products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome skort!!! When they say, "anytime casual skort" - It's the TRUTH!!!! I LOVE THIS SKORT! Fits perfect, form fitting but sporty, love the side ties to give it a little more sass! Comfortable!!!! Washes like a champ(I hang it to dry) and NO IRONING! You just can't beat this skort. Dress it UP or Down.. You decide. I want them in EVERY COLOR!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy for travel, Comfy easy wear and multi use clothing itme Skort is super comfy, easy wear, great soft packable fabric. Perfect for travel wear as good for shopping, out for dinner as easily as on the trails for hiking or walking and site seeing.. Pockets are a bit shallower then I’d like as my phone would fall out but works for other small things. (Chapstick, tissue etc) Love the neutral color and washes very well. Sized a bit large but okay. (I’m 5’7”, 145 lbs, athletic build and medium is okay small probably would have been better as when I hike clothes stretch and get loose) overall I’m happy and I’d buy this skirt again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from who wears short shorts? Poor design choices... There is almost no point to the sewn-in shorts because the elastic doesn't stop them from riding all the way up! Bought them for golfing, unlikely to wear them for that purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go To Skort for Everything! Love, love, love this skort. I can wear this into the office with a pair of flip flops on casual Friday, or I can dress it up with a pair of classy sandals. I can then switch it up and throw on my hiking boots and hit the trails. These skorts are great travel companions. Just roll them up and off you go! Love they have decided to come out with more colors. For an even better fix, I have cut out those annoying string ties on the sides. I cannot stand them. So that is an easy fix for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable AND cute! I bought one of these (size M - true to size but forgiving) before a trip to the Bahamas, and ended up getting two more after the vacation! The built-in shorts are beyond comfortable - not to mention practical - and the material is soft. Love the side drawstring for added character. Bring on the warm weather!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form, Function and Fashion I love Columbia's skorts - all of the freedom of shorts and all of the fashion of a skirt. They go from trail to casual social gatherings with ease. The fit is very flattering, allowing for freedom of movement without worry or discomfort. The fabric feels terrific and dries very quickly, whether your adventures include water sports or simply inclement weather. The quality is outstanding and I expect that, like my other well-loved Columbia skorts, this will be in regular rotation for years to come.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No free returns I wanted to return this as it was too big, so I ordered a large, but Columbia does not offer free return postage, very disappointed (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best active skort ever! This skort is comfortable and classy. I love that it is versatile. I can wear it with an active top and sneakers or dress it up with a pretty top and sandals. It folds small, dries quickly, and has an SPF 50 so it’s perfect for travel. I bought the first one last year and have since added 3 more in different colors! I highly recommend this skort!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and stylish skort I’m curvy 164cm, 64kg person and I ordered M, fits perfectly, the skort looks nice, I like the fact that I can make it shorter or larger with the straps at the sides, the fabric is very durable, confortable and nice, I used it to go rollerblading in a windy day and the skort stayed in place making me feel confident all the time. The pockets are short, my iPhone X doesn’t stay into them, I have to put it in a stretch belt I have instead and the inner short keeps crowling up my legs so I have to pull it down regularly. But in general I like the skort a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and comfy. Just purchased this skort to wear on a cruise. I wore it over top of a bathing suit as a cover up onboard the ship and also wore with a cute sleeveless blouse and flats for a casual dinner. Very comfortable and versatile. I'm sure I will get lots of use out of it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile, wish it came sans undies I am not normally a skirt person but I bought this on sale to give it a try. I was really glad I had it on a multi-week trip in South Africa. It was good to change into when it was too warm for pants and/or when everything else was dirty, and appropriate from the bush to the beach and out to restaurants. I like the wide waistband and easy care fabric that dirt doesn't stick to easily, but wish it came without the built-in undershorts. I range between 170 and 190lbs and the XL fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite item of clothing I now have 5 of these skorts, just one more colour to get I think! Use them for walking, shopping, pickleball and tennis. Great fit, washes well, take it easy on the dryer or they will wrinkle. Inner short does not ride up, perfect length. Like I said, my favourite piece ofclothing - bring out more colours please.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful surprise! A stylish Skort and very functional! I love Skorts . I recently purchased my first Columbia Skort in Vail Colorado. I love the fit and look so much I went on-line to check for more colors. I was able to order two more in different colors and was delighted. The fit is true to size, functional for hikes, gym or to dress up if needed. Now, I would love to see the designers produce a good looking 2-in -1 combination Skort and Tight in this line.

I get compliments on this skort all the time and so much so that some of my friends are purchasing this too!!! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
