Virtually every Fashionista cringes at the hottest trends of the ’90s: jelly shoes, overalls and acid wash denim just to name a few. However, one ’90s staple seems to have stood the test of time and even has the attention of a-list celebrities including Olivia Palermo and Karolina Kurkova. The skort has made its comeback in a new and chic way, and is looking to be the must-have-item this fall.
I spotted this Fashionista chilling on the quad in between classes. I instantly admired the asymmetrical and geometric styling of her white skirt, and was then in awe at the practicality of the shorts in the back. It’s feminine and practical at the same time, without being busy or tacky. The skort is an extremely versatile piece that can be dressed up or dressed down, and rocked every season of the year.
On top, this Fashionsta opted for a cozy, studded sweater. To mimic her look, choose a slouchy sweater that will look rad against the angular skort. This Fashionista did an impeccable job of balancing femininity and edginess throughout the look. Pair together a pair of lace-up leather boots with knit knee socks to complete the ensemble and keep you warm at the top of the Colgate hill.
One Simple Change: To quickly turn this cute daytime outfit into a sassy look for a girl’s night out, ditch the knee socks and swap out the boots for a pair of sky-high wedge booties; throw on a pair of sheer tights in the colder months.
