Trend Alert: Is it a Skirt? Is it Shorts? No, it’s a Skort!

One trend that we all thought would be forgotten about back in our elementary school days is the skort. Yet, fashion always has a way to make the oldest fashion trends come back around.

Skorts are one of the most convenient pieces of clothing to wear on a night out on the town. They have the playfulness of a skirt and the comfort of a pair of shorts.

Wearing a skort means never having to worry about pulling it down or accidentally flashing someone because of the built-in pair of shorts that cover everything. This is why  parents pushed so hard for kids to wear them when they were in elementary school running around the playground. Now, these kids are grown up and too busy running around the city to worry about their clothing. Skorts are the perfect article of clothing to put those worries aside.

For the working woman this piece of clothing makes running late for the bus or to a meeting much easier.

Try throwing on an off-the-shoulder top with a skort for an easy springtime look, or a nice button-down to dress up the look. Add a pair of loud earrings or comfy platform sandals to bring even more to the outfit.

Skorts will be seen in every store this spring, so make sure to hop on the train before everyone else does.
