Fashionista NOW: 4 Ways To Wear Statement Skorts Fashion Inspiration

Plain skorts aside, let’s go get a clue on the 4 brilliant ways to style printed statement skorts while the sun’s still out.

Being one of the revived 90s fashion fads, skorts are designed for those who love the idea of a mini skirt but aren’t able to commit for fear of an accidental underwear exposure. The skort is a faux skirt through and through and the previous year saw its quick return into the street style fashion scene.

While a typical skirt boasts a leveled hemline, the skort trend much loved by global fashionistas comes in an origami style flap on the front and the appearance of the usual shorts from the posterior.

The front fabric panel design of the skort makes it a tricky trend to sport but nonetheless, we see them donned by a variety of wearers of diverse shapes and proportions with various style interpretations that may work for or against them.

I personally find origami skorts hard to style as they appear to do justice on figures with legs to show off. The kind of skort that I have the guts to wear has an all-around pleated skirt appearance that is much easier to pull off as I am afflicted with a love/hate relationship with my legs.

Anyway, if you are wondering how to work an origami style printed skort into your wardrobe taking your shape into major consideration, cast your attention to the looks below for a quick fashion guide:

The pointy front flap of a skort is a visual magnet and it pulls the focus straight onto your legs. A skort with this distinct construction can easily take the focus away from an overall look if paired sloppily.

Em Trava takes the modern route by pairing a high neck crop top with the floral skort and finishes off with a see-through sandal rendered in edgy spikes.

Lace and plaid makes a chic team.

Anico teams her delicate lace crop top with a grungy plaid skort for the ultimate play of contrasting elements and injects a dose of dressiness with a pair of black ankle strap sandals and leather tote. She finalizes the look with a long chunky gold chain necklace.

Another patterned skort to go nuts over features a black and white paisley motif.

Sára keeps her look within the monochromatic style territory pairing the skort with a white bandeau top worn underneath a long white vest. She completes her look with a sling bag and a pair of chunky sandals in black.
