Plus-size skorts are summer fashion’s secret weapon! They look like a skirt, but have shorts built-in. With skorts, there’s that summer skirt style with the range and mobility of shorts. Not only are they easy and adorable to wear, but they come in a range of lengths and colors.
Worn by sportswomen for generations, the freedom of wearing skorts allowed golfers and tennis players to make tricky shots without embarrassment. They became a fashion item in the ‘90s, and women loved their style and the comfort they offer. Now they’re back on fashion’s radar.
They’re fashion and athletic wear’s answer to the classic summer style quandary of what to wear. They’re stylish and can be paired with almost any top in your closet. Anything you can do in shorts or a skirt, you can do with greater ease in a skort. Workout skorts are also a game-changer (pun intended). The built-in short lets you plank, do squats, and even run in them.
Skorts are so comfortable that you may forget you’re wearing them.
The essential skort has a wide waistband, side pockets, built-in boyshorts, and have a pull-on front or zip styling. Tennis skorts have pleats like a tennis skirt. Like the tennis skirt, they have pockets big enough to hold a tennis ball, and end at mid-thigh. Plus size athletic skorts like golfing skorts have either an A-line or a straight-cut skirt, pockets, and end above the knee. Runners, hikers, and gym-goers opt for a short skort that has an A-line cut to accommodate long strides. Both the golfing and running/hiking shorts come in four-pocket options.
Activewear skorts use endurance materials that are moisture-wicking, breathable, and have antimicrobial properties. Fashion skort fabrics run the gamut from knit to chambray and denim. When it comes to colors and patterns, they come in the same colors and patterns as shorts or skirts.
When wearing skorts you may wonder what the best shirt is to create a selfie-worthy outfit. If you’re hitting the courts—tennis or bball, wear the shirt that matches the sport. Brunch with friends, try a skort with a cute top. A sleeveless linen top adds the right amount of polish to a tailored skirt. A knit skort would look great paired with a tee or polo shirt.
