When you hear the word skort, you may immediately think of the skirt-in-the-front, short-in-the-back bottoms you wore in elementary school. And while some TikTokers are still discovering the versatility of that style, the far more comfortable exercise skort — which features a skirt with attached shorts hidden underneath — is making a resurgence.
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 15 of our favorite options to wear for any activity.
