If you’ve never heard of the skort, you might well ask how you wear one! So, let us explain exactly what the skort is. As its name suggests, a skort is a hybrid fashion item that combines features of both a skirt and a pair of shorts. It’s the best of both worlds and is both pretty and practical: the ultimate combination!
How to wear a skort?
In its original form, the skort featured a front panel that made it appear as a skirt from that angle, but from the back, it looked like a pair of shorts. This style certainly still exists now, but Best&Less also stock skorts that are slightly different. Some skorts resemble the old-style culottes. These are essentially a split skirt. Additionally, we stock a knit skort that looks like a sports skirt from the front and the back but has undershorts built into the construction.
As a school uniform item, the skort should be considered the hero for little girls everywhere. If all schools adopted the skort as a uniform option, no girl would need to experience the deep embarrassment of flashing her underwear to the entire school when going on the monkey bars or flipping a cartwheel. Best&Less stock several colour and style options within the range of skorts for school.
Back to the question at hand: how to wear a skort? Well, it’s simple really. You wear a skort as you would wear skirts or a pair of shorts! It really makes a great alternative to traditional skirts or pants for women.
How to style a skort?
It’s safe to say that you can style a skort any way you feel inclined to style it! Traditionally, a skort would have been considered a casual item, with practicality being at the heart of the design. Now, however, the skort can be styled suit a dressy occasion, particularly if teamed with a cropped or bodycon top and a pair of cute heels. The front panel of a skort is usually in a wraparound style, and the fabric selection is probably the biggest factor in deciding what ‘look’ you can achieve using your skort as the feature piece.
If the skort is more of a culotte style, it may be longer than a traditional skort and needs to be paired with a tight-fitting top, tucked in, or a cropped top. This outfit would be finished perfectly with a pair of lace-up runners.
Of course, if you’re shopping for a skort in the school uniform category, there’s not a lot of room for ‘styling’! However, the freedom gained from this skirt alternative will overshadow the fact that it can only be worn with the regulation monogrammed polo shirt!
