When you hear the word skort, you may immediately think of the skirt-in-the-front, short-in-the-back bottoms that you wore in elementary school. And while some younger TikTokers are still discovering the versatility of that style, the far more comfortable exercise skort — which features a skirt with attached shorts hidden underneath — as well as the similarly designed tennis skirt are shaping up to be fashion staples for spring.
These skorts and tennis skirts aren't just for workouts or matches, either. They’re a good choice for hiking, running, walking or even lounging. Plus, many of them have hidden pockets in the shorts underneath, which you don’t always find with other athleisure pieces, like leggings or bike shorts.
Below, we rounded up 16 of our favorite options to wear for any activity.
Skorts to shop
This skort from Athleta is a go-to for all of your favorite activities. No matter what you're doing, you'll stay cool and comfortable thanks to the recycled featherweight fabric and mid-rise waistband. Sizes also range from XXS-3X, making it a more body-inclusive option.
This skort has everything you need to feel comfortable and look stylish: quick-drying technology, StretchTech fabric, UV sun protection, a light reflective logo — and it even comes in six spring-friendly colors to boot. With hidden zipper pockets at the front and on-seam side pockets for your phone, this pick takes functional fashion to a new level.
Whether you're running errands or working out, this highly rated skort is a great option for either activity. According to reviewers, it is flattering, breathable and runs true to size. It also absorbs moisture to keep skin dry and comes in four fun prints, including Vivid Tropics, camo, and snakeskin.
We love the flower pattern on this skort from American Eagle. The design is perfect for the upcoming warmer months as well as its relaxed, high-waisted fit. It's available in both regular and long sizes, for those that prefer a knee-length skirt.
This stylish skort is extremely versatile and can be dressed up or down, depending on the look you're going for. It's made of super-soft vegan suede and has a zipper for a more secure fit.
No matter what you have planned, you'll be super comfortable in this everyday skort. "[It's] my favorite thing I own," one reviewer wrote. "I wear this as a normal skirt and feel so comfortable (I am tall and usually can't find miniskirts I feel comfortable in), and this is a GAME CHANGER!!"
Searching for something with a bit more coverage? This skort hits just a couple of inches above the knee, which one reviewer called the "perfect" length. It's currently the No. 1 bestselling tennis skirt on Amazon and comes in more than 30 colors and patterns.
Not only is this skort super flattering, but it's made with recycled water bottles, so it's a great choice for the sustainably-minded shopper. It has hidden mesh pockets and slits along the side, which allow for easier movement.
This skort comes in 21 colors, including a classic white, bright orange and mint cream. It has a hidden inner pocket and a discreet cable hole in the back, so your headphone wire doesn't get in the way while you're running or walking.
Tennis skirts to shop
Tennis skirts have been on the rise lately, and the ruffled back on this piece makes it the perfect pick to go outdoors in style. It has a fitted high-rise waistband and spacious side pockets for tennis balls and other essentials.
This affordable skirt is currently on sale for $13 and available in sizes up to 5XL. The handy pocket can carry your most important belongings, so you can enjoy a day outdoors or on the court without worrying about losing your phone or keys.
Add some extra flair to your outfit with a chic wrap-style tennis skirt. Its comfy inner short is designed to flatter every size and body type, so if you're new to the skort trend, this might be the perfect first pair to try out.
Made out of sustainable materials and part of Nike's Move to Zero campaign, this skort is sure to become a go-to staple in your closet. It features stretchy, lightweight fabric for those that love to be outdoors, and the absence of a front seam helps to create an overall cleaner look.
Ruffled details make this skort feel like a romantic choice. And while it's technically a "tennis" skirt, you'll love the lightweight and soft fabric so much, you'll want to wear it for every activity.
Along with a regular side pocket in the inner shorts and one in the back, this skort also has an upside-down pocket that can be used to store tennis or golf balls for easy retrieval.
Make a statement with this brightly colored tennis skirt. Made with a soft and stretchy material, this option from Nike comes in multiple colors, but the bright Copa blue and Regal Pink shades feel like the perfect choice for spring and summer.
