The cycling dress trend took over the activewear scene a few summers ago, but starting last year, I began seeing skorts everywhere. And why not?
These breezy bottoms with built-in bike shorts are easy to wear for tennis, golf, runs and walks, and just about any athletic activity, as well as everyday wear on hot summer days. And right now, as the tenniscore trend takes its hold on the internet, there's no better time to shop a skort for yourself.
As a travel editor who specializes in shopping, I'm always on the lookout for the best clothing and accessories for life on the go, and I'm a huge fan of these cycling skorts for travel and everyday wear, especially during the summer months. Since there are so many options on the market, I narrowed down a list of my four favorites, as well as other options to shop online right now at varying price points.
My favorite skorts, also often also referred to as tennis skirts, are from Girlfriend Collective, FP Movement, Vuori, and Wear One's At. I love the stretchy, easy-breezy feel of these options, as well as their secure high-waisted fits, although each pick made my list of favorites for a different reason. Keep reading for more on my four favorite athletic skorts and where to buy them.
My all-time favorite skort has to be this one from Girlfriend Collective, mostly due to how versatile it is. I will not only wear this on long walks and while exercising, but also out to dinner, concerts, and more. It's made from a blend of fabric sourced from recycled water bottles and spandex, offering a compressive fit with plenty of comfortable stretch. The skort also has a high-rise fit and features small side slits for a sporty look. You'll find two mesh pockets on the built-in bike shorts, as well as a hidden slip pocket in the waistband.
