Once upon a time, skorts (a portmanteau of “skirt” and “shorts”, naturally) were predominantly for workout attire and toddlers, but things are changing and the skort has quickly become a style staple. If you cannot get enough of the athleisure look, there are plenty of tennis-inspired dresses featuring built-in shorts and workout skorts for you, but designers have also experimented with new styles that expand what it means to be a “skort”. Keep scrolling for some stylish skorts you will adore and want to wear every day.
This dress was designed to keep you clubbing with confidence well into the wee hours. At first glance it looks like a simple and stunning hot pink mini dress, but closer inspection reveals that this dress comes with its very own shorts underneath so you can dance the night away without worrying if your skirt is riding up.
Few do tennis style better than Lacoste, so I trust them when it comes to designing stylish tennis dresses that are functional and fashionable. This white sports dress is ideal for activities and errand runs, featuring a smocked waist for a form-fitting shape and a color-blocked criss-cross back detail.
I am absolutely enamored with the colorful floral print on this Alice + Olivia skort, as well as how stylish it looks with the matching printed top. Pair with chunky white sneakers and sassy sunglasses for a modern look.
Reformation is making waves with their chic activewear dresses and skorts, including a black and white set that gives “Meredith Blake vibes” according to TikTok, but I for one adore this green printed dress that provides an activewear spin on Reformation’s iconic prints. It resembles Reformation’s standard mini-dresses and would look adorable with a denim jacket and heels, but it is equally suited for workouts, making it incredibly versatile.
Valentino knows how to make anything sophisticated, including a skort. This hot pink tweed style is so fun and girly for anyone who likes to look equal parts feminine and sassy.
How cool is the lime green hue on this Girlfriend Collective workout dress? It is super flattering and hugs curves in all the right places, with a V-neck and built-in bra plus shorts—with pockets!—for plenty of support.
Everything is better in denim, including this wrap-style skort from Free People. Looking like an ultra-mini skirt in the front and your favorite pair of denim shorts in the back, this skort was made for music festivals and concerts. Just throw on your favorite slouchy band tee and you are good to go.
This plaid dress from Marysia is so sweet, with scallop edges and a halter-neck that dresses this up for off-the-court style. It also comes in black, white, and hot pink if you prefer a solid color over a print.
