The Return of the Skort: 15 Short-Skirt Hybrids We Love

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Everyone likes to have their cake and eat it too, right? Apply this thinking to this summer's mini-trend of drapey shorts and you get...the skort. Balanced out with a boysish button down or simple loose tank top, a flouncy culotte lets you get away with a barely-there hemline without the potential for indecent exposure. (In other words, feel free to walk over a subway grate or ride a bike.) Take a peep at this round up of our 15 favorite skorts, and you'll find that yes, you can have it both ways sometimes.-Julie Chen
