Best Skorts

There's a time and a place to wear a skirt. But, especially when you're doing anything remotely active—or simply anything that requires a little more range of motion, comfort, and support—it’s not always the most practical of apparel. You can't really ride a bike in a skirt or participate in most athletics without the risk of giving a glimpse of your undergarments. But whether cleaning, playing tennis, gardening, or even going to a meeting at the office, a skort can give you the best of both worlds. Essentially, a skort is a clever hybrid of a comfortable and supportive pair of shorts with panels built in to give the appearance of wearing a stylish skirt. Skorts are multipurpose articles of clothing that have increased in popularity more recently, and they’re available in a variety of styles and materials. We've found some stylish skorts that make great additions to your wardrobe, whether hitting the ballpark or the boardroom.
