Trend Report: The Skort

Since it hit stores, the skort has ignited mixed emotions among you ladies. It’s a marmite type situation, you either like them or hate them. We are big fans at The Style Fairy HQ.
A skort is basically shorts and a skirt combined. They look like shorts from the back usually and have a skirt effect to the front.

Love them or loathe them, it seems the skort isn’t going anywhere for Spring Summer 2014.
