I will never forget watching the TikTok where a teenage girl discovers the genius of a skort for the first time. She is blown away by the fact that a skirt could have shorts underneath, and I was left dismayed by how such an integral part of my wardrobe growing up could seem so novel to someone else. I feel similarly about the rise in athletic skorts. As a tennis player, this was quite literally my activewear uniform for the majority of my life, so while I am mildly surprised that they are just now catching on with the general public, I am not complaining one bit.
Skorts are cute and practical; the shorts underneath provide both coverage from an errant breeze or tough run and also storage. If you’ve questioned your ability to move around in a skirt, make sure it’s got shorts underneath, and you’ll wonder why you didn’t try this sooner. We found cute skorts on Amazon, as well as picks from top activewear brands like Alo Yoga and Girlfriend Collective. Keep reading to shop these top 12 styles before they sell out!
