It is July! Come on, July, we have higher hopes for you!
This confession may show my age? I’m not sure these are really cutting edge fashion and I don’t care! I love a skort! I even like saying “skort”! If you are not familiar with this term – a “skort” is a morphing of the words “skirt” and “short”. It looks like a skirt but it has shorts underneath. I think I owned many a skort as a little girl and I remember a floral skort from the 90s that I wore out to the clubs to go dancing. Some women are not comfortable wearing shorts out to run errands or to an event. Remember what an “event” is? Or, you might think the event calls for something a bit nicer? That is the beauty of the skort. You may not be doing much these days, but I still think the skort is a nice addition to the summer wardrobe.
My most recent foray into the world of skorts occured maybe 3-4 summers ago with this knit skort from Kohl’s. I love the look of white in the summer. I stopped being afraid of white and just went for it. My friends will never let me forget when I wore white denim cut off shorts to a bar in the 90s and slid down the exit ramp because it was slippery with beer I guess. My white shorts were no longer white, but they got a good laugh out of it! White jeans, white denim shorts, white linen shorts, white linen pants – I love them all. I just love the fresh look of white. So, when I was in Kohl’s on another mission a few years ago, I spotted this and thought it would be a great closet workhorse. It sure has been, you guys! I wear it all the time in the summer. Because it is knit and pull on, it is super comfortable. But, it looks nice enough to wear out to dinner or to somewhere a little nicer.
The skort that has been a great buy below:
There are also athletic skorts. I bought this one from Amazon and I don’t love the material so I am not going to link to it. But, this is good for walking or doing some other form of exercise. I sometimes wear this boating if I don’t plan to swim.
I also ordered these from Walmart.com upon seeing them on a blogger – I don’t love the fact that the material looks wrinkled and I can’t seem to fix that with my wrinkle spray. I have been wearing them, though, and they are just o.k. They are more in athletic skort category, too.
I have long loved the swim skort, too.
There are cute skorts intended for golf and tennis and you might find them in sporting goods stores or online. My Sister in Law wears a golf skort from Dick’s by the brand Lady Hagen. She really likes hers but I haven’t gotten to try it yet.
I plan to look for a couple more skorts to add to my summer wardrobe. Where do you stand on the skort?
