Last week, Emily Ratajkowski stepped out in a new incarnation of her now-signature, leggy femme fatale look—this time in what appeared to be a khaki mini, knee-high boots, a Dior bag, and a cropped jacket. But upon closer look, Ratajkowski wasn’t wearing a mini skirt, but rather a skort. Unlike a traditional skort that looks the same as a skirt, EmRata’s itty bitty shorts were visible in the back. It’s an easy look to get, too; The item in question costs a total of $40.
The kicky, sporty piece is often associated with tennis and golf. It has made a few cameos in Vogue, while, yes, speaking about these sports. But there is a freeing, modernity the skort has that a mini skirt just doesn’t. There’s the security of coverage–no wardrobe malfunctions or unintentional flashing. In fact, the skort is perhaps the best, underrated wear-everywhere piece to snag now. And for under $40? Not a bad deal.
