When it comes to fashion inspiration, I find many clothing ideas while scrolling through TikTok. The app is the way I discovered one of my favorite matching sets, and it’s even where I discovered the most comfortable pair of affordable heels I have. When I saw that almost everyone on TikTok was swinging a tennis skirt, I was immediately intrigued. At first, I bought one from Amazon, but I had trouble carrying it, and in the end I thought the shorts on the bottom of the skirt were too short. One day while shopping online, when I saw a picture of an old navy extra high-waisted powersoft plated skirt ($ 30), I thought I had found exactly what I was looking for.
When I received the package containing my skirt in the mail, I tore it up and tried it on the right and there. The skirt is made with the brand’s Powersoft fabric, which is extremely soft and comfortable and literally feels like butter in contrast to my skin. The fabric dries quickly, so I’ve learned that it’s perfect to wear during a sweaty workout – no need to worry about sweat stains. It’s a flared mini length skirt with a curved hem on the back and it’s the perfect length – not too long and not too short.
What I like about this Skort
My absolute favorite feature of this skirt is that it is very high-waisted. This skirt is an inch taller than the standard high-rise skirt of the Old Navy, which means it sits above the belly button – just where I like to hit my pants, shorts and now skirts. It has a built-in pocket in the shorts part that fits perfectly with my phone, which is great for me when I’m on the “Hot Girl Walk” and like to be hands-free.
Also, I like that it can be worn casually or for work. I styled it with a sports bra when wearing it to work out or when walking every day. I like to style it with a oversized sweatshirt or cropped tee when going out to work or meeting up with friends. In terms of shoes, I usually choose a pair of white sneakers with TikTok-Viral Hue Mini Crew Socks (ছয় 18 for six).
What is worth noting
This skirt has built-in shorts (this is what makes it a skirt), but it is worth noting that they are not completely “hidden” under the skirt. They are long and have a six-inch incisor, which means they can be seen peeking out from under their skirts. I love this feature and think it looks stylish, but it’s definitely something to remember!
In terms of sizing, I took my normal size, XS and it fits perfectly, so I would say this skirt is true in size.
Who is this Skort best for?
This is one of the items in my closet that I often reach out to, especially now that the weather is getting warmer. I think this product is suitable for anyone who wants to try the “skort” trend because the quality and fabric of this skort can’t be beaten especially honestly – it’s softer than any other skirt I’ve tested so far. It’s also great for those who want to improve their workout look.
- This skirt comes in XS-4X form.
- The fabric is 77 percent polyester and 23 percent spandex.
- The skirt comes in four different colors: black, white, multicolored and marine green.
