The Skort is All Grown Up and Better than Ever
Who said you can’t feel sexy in a skort?
Why, of course you can… and comfortable, commanding and confident, too! The once retired short-and-skirt-in-one trend is back this season, and this time it’s more chic than ever. While short is sweet on a tennis course, length is a consideration when it comes to other sports. So the trick is finding a design that isn’t too wide that your figure is lost, and one that is just the right length to show off those gams while performing like sportswear should. Vivacity’s skort, for instance, runs at a perfect length just above the knee, and is slim in silhouette.
“The biggest challenge in designing a skort is combining a perfect fit with a great look using pants/shorts and a skirt all in one. We make sure the athlete looks great but at the same time the skort has to perform well,” says Christina Zeller, Vivacity’s innovative designer. “Adding pockets that don’t look bulky is another challenge, which is why ours is cut into the waist instead the side seam.”
Here are some key features to keep in mind when shopping for your everyday skort:
Skorts are a comfy go-to for a variety of sports, especially golf and tennis. One thing that is so great about the skort is its versatility – on and off the course. Modern and chic, the skort allows women to enjoy their sports, run errands, or even grab some lunch with friends while looking stylish throughout the day. Match your skort with your favorite sweater or blouse and ballet or euro flats for a cute and comfortable post-game outfit.
Comfort & Fit
Did you know you can look fabulous and feel incredibly comfortable at the same time? Skorts this season feature high-performance materials that allow you to move and play comfortably. These skorts are made with breathable stretch fabrics such as Supplex Lycra®, rayon, nylon and spandex, with a light mesh short underneath. Most designs also incorporate small pockets to give you a place to carry your tees or maybe your favorite lip balm. Just be sure to try it on first to make sure the pockets are adding bulk.
Besides the comfort and versatility of these skorts, they are stylish and sexy, something you might not expect from a piece of sportswear. The form-fitting fabric creates a smooth and flattering shape without looking too tight. And what makes these skorts even better is the variety of colors and patterns available. You can go for a simple and sophisticated white skort with black trim, or go bold with a bright and beautiful turquoise skort. It’s mood dressing at its best!
Of course if you still can’t decide, take a cue from our designer…
“Our skorts feature a cute feminine look,” Christina says. “For example the Lori Skort turns into a fashionable skirt, slightly overlapping asymmetrically. Our styles are flattering for any woman’s body and will make her feel fashionable and sporty, which is exactly what we thrive for at Vivacity.”
