Women's Short Chino Skort
Great quality. Waiting for other colors for Spring. Some pockets would be nice.

"Short" is the operative word here--too short
"Short" is relative, and this skort, though of good-quality fabric, nice cut, and good fit, was too short for me. I was looking for a skort I could wear out grocery shopping, etc., and this was more the length of a tennis skirt--that is, too short for non-athletic wear. My legs are athletic, and in good shape, but there comes a point--okay, an age--when skirts can be too mini.
About an inch longer would have made it more versatile and more suitable for many occasions. Sorry to have to return it.

great for quick dressing
I LOVE this skort, it washes great, needs no ironing and I can wear it almost anywhere. It's wonderful. It also travels well.

comfortable and practical
5'8", size 12, hourglass shape. I bought these in a larger size last year and loved them. I have lost nearly 50 lbs since and decided to purchase them again, in my new size. They runs a little big so, if you are in the middle of your typical size range, you may want to size down. I usually wear a 12 but could probably do better with a 10. The chino fabric is a little stiff at first but wears in well and washes very very well. Last year's have held their color and are practically wrinkle-free. Fortunately, the shorts inside are a nice knit material, making them the most comfortable skorts I have ever owned. The only things that keep me from the excellent rating is that, when going through the stiff phase, the fabric kind of flares out and makes my rear look larger. This goes away after a few washings and they drape better.

Lovely as a skirt
I had a previous version 2 sizes larger but have lost a lot of weight. Bought this in navy and tan for upcoming vacation. I cut out the shorts to make them into skirts. I loathe skorts, I find skorts/shorts make for too much bulk, but as I am quite short this makes a perfect skirt length in the regular size. The material is good quality, the fit is excellent once the shorts are out of there. I am not in the first flush of youth but I feel like these skirts (skorts I guess) give the right coverage and but still let me wear something that is not full or calf length.

I have a very hard time buying skirts because either the waist is too big and the hip room too small, and/or they ride up and move around to the point that they don't fit right. Land's End short skorts are now the only skirts I own, because they eliminate all those problems. The shorts underneath make sure the skirt part stays in place, can't ride up, and is easily worn alone or over tights. Also, it eliminates any common concerns with wearing a skirt so short. I have this short skort in the black or plaid, and plain to get more colors.

I was hoping it was a bit longer My fault for not measuring. It is a good fit and washes well.

Great Quality, Good Fit
This review is for the khaki colored version.
This material is not stretchy at all, so be sure to order with a little wiggle room. I ordered it to fit my waist, since I have a small waist and when I buy things to fit my hips, the waists always gap and slide. This is slightly snug around the hips, and fits great in the waist. I am keeping it, as it is not too snug to be bothersome or look bad. Just be aware that it's a stiffer material, and does not seem to stretch over time like denim does. I bought this skort to replace shorts, so the length is perfect for summer.
The quality is great, the cut is flattering, and the under shorts are really comfortable soft cotton. This skort is a keeper, and I plan to order another color. I would expect these skorts to keep looking new for several years. I am 5'5", 135lb, and ordered a size 6.

Easy to care for and great fit
This is a cute skort. The fit is nice - it is very comfortable to wear. Great for those casual but want to look nice events. I read the reviews and based my size on them - and it fits perfectly.
