This season, the utilitarian staple gets a high-fashion upgrade.
As we've watched the athleisure movement morph into mainstream fashion, the industry is witnessing items previously classified as utilitarian staples morph into luxe ready-to-wear garments. Designers have reimagined items like a hoodie or track pants into items that are as sartorially at home in an office (sometimes) as they are at the gym. The most recent item to undergo this transformation is the skort. Who would have thought that this blend between a skirt and shorts would find a place on the runways at Valentino?

The physical duality present in the silhouette of the skort allows the wearer to indulge in a micro hemline without the sartorial faux pas you risk with just the skirt component—this is said to everyone slipping a pair of spandex shorts on under their dresses and skirts. The materials range from flippy, pleated tennis skirts to sophisticated tweed varieties to more utilitarian nylon options (the kind you can hear when you walk). Regardless of whichever version delights you, we've rounded up our favorites for you to shop before the warm weather fades away.
