Women's Anytime Casual™ Skort is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 64.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime. Comfort always. The Anytime Casual Skort is fantastic! The fabric is soft and extremely comfortable. With just enough stretch to provide the flexibility needed to stay full active, this Skort never slows me down. It's great for everything from walking trails to walking the mall. The fabric repells water, dries quickly when washed, and looks great dressed up a bit or simply casual. Sizing stays true to Columbia's superior consistent sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile and comfortable This skort is so comfy and versatile. I have worn it to the beach, on the airplane, and out on a hot summer night. It is lightweight and doesn't need ironing. I plan on purchasing more in other colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this skort! I bought this skort because I wanted something cute, but also something that would wick sweat. This works perfectly! It is sporty, yet cute and feminine and it doesn't give you a 'wet butt'. I don't know how this material works, but it's amazing and I will order more. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, or a ball mom like me out in the heat, I recommend this skort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and comfy This is the first athletic skort I’ve purchased from Columbia. I love the fit and the wide waistband makes it super comfortable. My only complaint is the length of the attached shorts underneath. I don’t feel they are quite long enough to really be functional. I found myself tugging on them frequently as they would ride up basically anytime I walked or sat down. Otherwise I really like it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Skort!!!! I run Agility with my dogs and I’m always on the look for apparel that looks nice, but let’s me move without restrictions. This skort does that and more. The fabric is soft, but keeps it’s shape throughput the day. I love the wide waistband that doesn’t pinch. I definitely will be looking to buy another. Great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable The skort arrived in a timely fashion. It is very comfortable, easy to move in, not too short (I'm 5'9"), and cute. Love the material—very few wrinkles. Looking forward to the trails and city sidewalks in this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable & versatile Very Comfortable, moves with you no need to re-adjust. I wear it with the polo for a casual look or with a tank top for a sporty look. Will definitely buy again in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and sporty I love the Columbia skorts. They are a bit longer than most others, while still being sporty. I don’t really wear shorts except to workout. So this is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer/travel wear Durable, comfortable, fits well, and looks cute! It packs very small, best when you are on the go, traveling far or having a relaxed casual weekend near. I wear it on the hiking trails, outdoor bbq with friends, shopping, casual lunch - it is multi functional, you just have to dress it up with different tops . Very satisfied with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trifecta of style, comfort, and practical function Across the spectrum from out and about town to a hike in the woods, this easy wear skort offers a fun style, easy comfort, and practical functionality. Plus, the material and wearability make it a great travel piece, too. Definitely an essential piece for every wardrobe and with the color choices, you will want more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable This was exactly what I wanted. The waistband is nice and wide for a very comfortable fit. I wear a size 8 and the medium fit perfect. I haven't worn it yet but I'm going to Costa Rica next week and I'm sure I'll be wearing it a lot. I really like the inside shorts since we will be biking a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Anytime skirt review Nice skirt but didn't like the side ties so I removed them.
Date published: 2018-02-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skort I was looking for more feminine shorts for this summer and this fits the bill! I’m 5’4”, 122lbs, 50 yrs and I bought a small in both the gray and khaki. It pulls a very, very tiny bit at the pocket but from comments I read, a medium would have probably been too large. It fits nice and flat at the waistband which I love, and the shorts underneath seem pleasantly snug. I lengthened the strings at the sides for now, but I could see tying them up again at the beach...I have not worn/washed yet as it’s still winter here, so I can’t comment on that. Overall, I’m very pleased with the quality of material, fit, and length-not too short and not too long either! I’d love other colors now!

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 5 out of 5 by from Love this skort! I don't wear skirts, usually capris or shorts.. but I've been wanting this type of skort for while, finally bought it! I wore it on vacation recently, all day long, very comfortable, felt a little girly with the skirt look (good thing!), yet quite functional for the whole day of site seeing, then did a run/walk race that night in it as well. The only issue I had was the sides not staying tied... I spilled liquid on it and it brushed right off, no wetness, no stain!! Comfy and functional, I love it! I think I need more colors now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A summer staple This skort fits as expected based on size chart and all other Columbia clothing I have (which is a lot). Color is as pictured; I got both the tusk and black. I lived in Columbia skorts last summer, and this style is a favorite. Quick off/on, comfy wide waistband, and it’s cute enough for dinner but comfy enough for a long walk or hike. (Might be a bit long for a hike with a lot of climbing or elevation changes, but the length is perfect otherwise). I was afraid the side ties would get irritating or come undone, but I haven’t had any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I live in these skorts I bought one of these last summer and ended up pretty much living in it. I now have 4! The fit is perfect; the most flattering skort on the planet. I work at a farm and also a chef - doing a variety of jobs/tasks each day. I need to be in with the goats and then out in the farm stand helping people - lots of hauling, bending, lifting but also need to look put together...this skort is everything.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great skort This is a great skort. I bought a small which fits great. For reference, I am 5'8" and 127 lb. It falls about mid-thigh on me. The gray is a soft gray and goes with most colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skirt Love this skirt, have it in many colours. Looks great and so comfortable. I took the side ties out, but works either way. Very versatile as it looks casual, or dressier depending what you wear with it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh So I love skorts. Part of the reason is that I like skorts is that I love that my legs don't rub together and the shorts part of the skort doesn't ride up....however these do all of that. I love the material and the look but the shorts riding up is a deal breaker for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best skort EVER!!! I am a long distance runner and originally bought this skirt for that purpose. I first bought this skort 5 years ago and only now is it starting to pill. I was so excited to see this on sale and bought two more! The quality is excellent and it is so comfortable to wear, plus it looks great. 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.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great swim skirt!l I have been looking for a longer swim skirt. I wanted more coverage than most swim skirts have and I was really looking for something I could wear to the beach. This was perfect for what I wanted. The material is light and dries quickly. I bought the black and liked it so much I bought the gray also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a disappointment Great, flattering skort that hit my petite figure just above the knees: I was so excited when I bought it. However. After cutting the tags off and wearing it around for a while, I found the shorts inside really rode/bunched up: they're pointless. Then. I washed the skort following the washing directions: cold water, low dryer, remove promptly. It must have shrunk TWO INCHES. The skort no longer hits me at a good length for my figure. And, it came out of the dryer not only two inches shorter but also super wrinkled: it will literally need ironing to look like it did when I bought it. Who wants to iron a sporty skort? So...anyone looking for a barely worn mini-skort?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel clothing I bought this skort to wear on my Seattle vacation. I packs well and looks very nice for casual wear. The fit is good although I am tall and 65 years old and could use an extra two inches in length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and nice looking This skort is very comfortable and long enough to wear to work or at play. I like the wide elastic waistband because it doesn't pinch. The only thing that I would improve on is to put some type of rubber on the shorts part so they don't ride up as bad. I have other Columbia skorts with elastic waists and they all fit about the same. I am 5'7" and 155 lbs and a medium fits perfect.
Date published: 2017-07-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy! Perfect for any occasion! I found it to run a little large, but it still works for me. I loved it so much, I went back online and bought the black as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer uniform I love and LIVE in these skorts in the warm weather. I'm not a "shorts" person and these skorts fit my lifestyle perfectly. The flat front is a big plus. Who wants that extra bulk of a zipper and snap. I wear them everywhere....kayaking, shopping, on the beach. I have six, three at my home and three at my beach house. Quick drying. Stylish looking.
