I am not one of those cute girls who perspire when I work out. I get dripping wet, my face turns all pink, and I look like a hot mess. Frankly, I’m proud when I can wring my T-shirt out at the end of a session; it means I didn’t waste my time. As far as looking cute and girlie though? That comes later, after a shower, a bit of makeup, and some “real” clothes for the street.
But then I found skorts!
OK, so I’m still a big, pink, hot mess, but at least my skort is cute. They’re great for running and most forms of cardio, although I’d be careful in a bootcamp class, and skorts definitely won’t work for Pilates or yoga. You’ll be showing a bit too much panty for comfort, trust me on that one. Basically if it’s a sport you can stand in, you’re good. If you have to lie down, skip it!
I tend to go for the basic black kind with perhaps a bit of a racing stripe. But my style in general is sleek with minimal fuss. You can go a bit nutty with them; there are even sparkly skorts these days!
So what do you think of skorts? Do you own any? Do you like them? What’s your favorite style? Let’s start a discussion and share a few fashion tips. Also let me know what your favorite sport is to wear them while doing.
