Is there any clothing item that encapsulates the ’90s more beautifully than a skort? My first exposure to them was in kindergarten…
My best friend had an amazing floral wrap skort that she wore to school every Friday, and I was mesmerized — and quite confused. In the front, it was a skirt, but in the back, shorts?? How could two exist in one garment? My five-year-old mind was blown.
A couple years later, I had a healthy collection of denim skorts, in all their ’90s glory. So a few months ago when I saw this TikTok video I freaked out.
At first, I thought, So THIS is what getting old feels like, followed by Holy sh*t! Skorts are back, baby!
I immediately found this pair and haven’t stopped wearing it since. I love how comfortable skorts are, and they go with anything. I’m planning to put tights on underneath when the weather cools. I’m somewhat of a “skort purist” and have a strong preference for skirt in the front, shorts in the back (as opposed to shorts under the skirt), but I think I can be swayed. Here are four other favorites: this denim pair that take me back to 1998 in the best way, a sweater skort, one with pockets, and this tennis one, that would look so cute with an oversized sweatshirt.
What do you think? Are you glad skorts are back? Will you wear one?
