Patagonia Kamala Skirt - Women's

One skirt—two outfits. Snap!

When you hike the Patagonia Women's Kamala Skirt up around your chest, you create a short and sassy halter dress. Throw on some thin silver chains to add a splash of panache when you're heading out for the evening, regardless of whether you're wearing the Kamala as a skirt or a dress.

classic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I love the Kamala and find it great for travel. When worn as a skirt is is pretty long but you can fold over the waist to shorten it up for two looks. When worn as a dress it is really cute but not extremely supportive for over a B chest so having a bikini top or strapless bra handy may be nice! Washes well and doesn't wrinkle easily.

Cute, cute, cute!

  • Size Bought: S

I ordered the reflection stripe/feather grey. I'm shorter, so this is longer on me as a skirt, but it's cool. Doesn't make me look stumpy. The shorter side hits me about 2" below my knee.
Also super cute as a dress, but a bit more casual than the skirt option. Wearing it as a skirt, you could fancy it up a little & put this with a strappy heel & head on out to dinner.
The material is super soft, light & flowy, without being in any way shape or form sheer.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

wow

Another present for the moms birthday

Cute and casual

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Very casual summer skirt. Fabric is light and the fit is flattering. Length was off for me. It either needed to be shorter or longer. It also runs a bit small.

cute and comfy

    I got the Reflection Stripe/Howling Turquoise color and love it. It's very flattering, both as a skirt or dress, and is great for hot weather. Soft fabric that is lightweight but not at all sheer, and doesn't cling anywhere.

    Great skirt, runs true to size

    Bought as a gift for my wife. About this skirt she says, "Beautiful color; fun, sassy skirt that is elegant and comfortable. Great for around town, playing with my kids, and work. You can't go wrong with this skirt. The asymmetrical hemline makes it fun, the shorter end falling right at the knee."

    Great skirt

      Soft material true to size very comfortable.

      Twofer!!!

      • Size Bought: XS

      This dress is light weight and flows so nicely. The fabric is very soft. It's very comfortable and so great that it can be a skirt or a dress. It's like buying two items for the price of one! Love, love, love this drirt! Or is it a skress?

      cute skirt

      • Fit: True to size

      I got this item for a friend in a medium and the fit was fine, weather wearing it as a dress or a skirt. The material is very soft and comfortable, making this the perfect piece for tropical climates. She found this dress/skirt to be very versatile... worn as a dress it is perfect for coming and going from the beach for the day, then as a skirt paired with a cute top for a dinner out! Easy! Love the dark blue color too.

      Different Sizing from last season

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: M

      I really like this skirt, it's comfortable and versatile. But, I have one from last year/season and I wear a SM with room to spare. In this year's version, I could barely get the small on, I tried a few to be sure, so I had to switch to MED. Weird, but ok otherwise.

      Cute and Comfortable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      I had my eye on this skirt all summer, and finally ordered. I am on the short side (5 feet, 2 inches), and was worried about the skirt version being too long. I have found that it is just right, however! I love the variable hemline, it lets me wear it in different ways. All in all, a good purchase, and I look forward to wearing this for a number of summers to come.

      Just hippy enough

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I really like the Kamala skirt. It falls at just the right length and has just a touch of hippy flare. It washes up well. I have not used it as a dress...I am too old for that! Nice and cool on a hot summer day. I bought the navy blue version

      Love Love Love!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      Oh wow, this skirt is great! I love it just as a skirt, but I did try it out tying it up as a halter dress, and it's not sooo baaaad!!! I have the 'glass blue' color, the one with neon yellow, pink and blue in it. It's exactly what I could have hoped for... Maybe more!!

      In love

      Bought this in navy, great comfortable skirt to wear around the beach and for travel when you need to pack light! I didn' t get a chance to use it as a halter this trip but will be sure to give it a try next time!

      How long is this skirt at the longest point and the shortest point?

      Cute and comfy!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      The pattern and fabric are cute and versatile! I'm a teacher so it's perfect to wear to work with tights underneath. The dress fits really well and as a skirt it's a little tight around the hips but still fits decently. It's great for work or for wearing out!

      Great shape - as a skirt or a dress!

      • Fit: True to size

      I've owned skirt/dress combinations before, and usually while the skirt is fine, the dress has as much style as a paper bag. This is the exception - the skirt flow nicely and the dress is actually shaped well (you'll actually have a waist). I'm not a small person, and the dress kept even "the girls" up where they belong due to the handy neck tie. Great for travel!

      Bright colors! Great skirt

      I bought this skirt for me wife because she liked the way it looked in the pictures. When she got, she tried it on and the fit and length were fantastic. However, she ordered the pink color based on the way it looked in the picture and we were surprised to find that it seemed about 3 times as bright as it does in the picture. Other than that initial shock, it's a great skirt. She says that it's comfortable and easy to wear.
