Don’t worry, I’m not wearing the shortest skirt ever made, it’s a SKORT! Which makes the shortness of this item completely okay, in my opinion. After all, there’s built in shorts. What’s your take on the skort trend? I wasn’t too sure about it making a come back when I first saw people wearing the trend. But the 90s gal in me said give them a try. So I tried on this one and was sold. Of course, the one i’m wearing in this post has sold out. Seems to happen every time I purchase something from Forever 21. It’s gone before I have a chance to share it! I did however find a similar one at a similar price here.

So let’s talk about styling a skort. For the most part, I say treat the article of clothing like a skirt. Go with what you’d typically wear with a skirt. Except, this summer, have more fun! Try more pattern mixing {like I did}, go for a more flirty top, or rock a cute t-shirt. Just remember balance. Since the skort I’m wearing here is quite short, I went with a more conservative top. You don’t want to be looking like your wearing a swimsuit or showing off too much skin. 

If it’s a standard length skort {think typical mini skirt length} go with a sweet off the shoulder blouse or graphic tee tucked in. A crop top would look cute too. One that just hits below the waistline of the skort. 

So, do you think you’ll give the skort trend a try this summer?
