→ What are skorts?

Skorts, or skirts that are shorts, were created for active women who want to wear a skirt but don't want to deal with the discomfort of wearing shorts and a skirt at the same time. Skorts have been around for years and have been popularised by female tennis players, but they are now becoming more popular as an activewear staple.


With many different types of skorts to choose from, like the classic style that comes with an elastic waistband or a drawstring at the waist or the more modern style that has no elastic at all. 


Skorts - combining fashion and sports in order to create a neat, clean piece of clothing that becomes easy to style with almost anything. There’s nothing greater than finding a piece of clothing that not only looks great - but also feels as comfortable as ever.

Unless you're particularly interested in skort for athletic reasons, there are other ways to style shorts that don't require you to stick to this idea. For skort lovers out there, combine your skort with an oversized jersey-style shirt or letterman jacket. Complete your look with a baseball cap and sneakers. For something more streamlined, combine your skort with a V-neck T-shirt and basic Converse shoes.  A common way to style the look is to stick to one colour, all white or all black. Add pop-colored shoes and clutches to create trendy looks and neutral-colored styles.

Skirts vs shorts: Are skorts the best option?

Both garments are aesthetically completely different but serve the same purpose. It is important that we feel comfortable when we participate in fitness-related activities. Shorts are a great must-have for comfort. Most shorts are made of stretchy material, which makes them easy to move around in, especially in the summer while keeping cool temperatures. Skirts, on the other hand, are usually made for more fashionable purposes. They are cute and go with almost every other outfit. Regular skirts are not usually considered fitness wear due to their low support.
