For the love of skorts. When I spotted this skort on Christine Centenera ( the uber-glam senior fashion editor at Vogue Australia), I can't tell you how in love I was. To me, it had everything that made up a statement piece : comfort, style and a sort of edgy-glam that is rarely seen in high-street labels nowadays. Thanks to Zara, the skort has been re-invented into a super posh, super chic and super safe (it won't accidentally blow up when the wind blows) version that does the "business in the front, party at the back" with panache. It's assymetrical envelope-like folds gives it the tailored, polished quality of a skirt, yet it has the comfort and versatility of shorts. Worn by almost everyone who is anyone - Karolina Kurkova, Rumi Neely, Chiara Ferragni ,Olivia Palermo, Aimee Song you name it, the skort is definitely the It item of the season. Even Raf Simons gave the skort the Dior touch for Spring 2014 and sent Daria Strokous down the runway to open the show. Whether you dress it up into a look worthy of a feature in Vogue, or you dress it down into a street-cool look with sneakers and a sweater, the styling possibilities are endless. So grab your skort now, or you don't make the cut for Spring 2014.

What do you think about these skorts?


  1. I am actually SO tired of skort already because after it came out EVERY SINGLE woman bought it and flaunt it and in the end when I saw yet another skort I just wanted to vomit. It was cool until it became one of those copy-cat thingies that everyone had to get - and now I think the bigger wave has already gone away, it was more like this spring-summer trend :)



    1. I agree that the skort was way too trendy and not exclusive anymore, but it's still to-die-for material

  2. Love the Zara skort...however the things I can wear with it are limited in my opinion and perhaps maybe it just isn't my style. Other bloggers can pull it off so well though I'm jealous!

    likkie xx,

  3. I totally agree! It's practically the most amazing skort ever made :)

  4. It's really frustrating sometimes when I see other bloggers pulling it off so well, when I'm just a complete mess. I totally know how you feel Likkie

  5. Aww thanks Milene! I'm so touched that you love my blog :) I've also noticed that they've become a bit common recently, but they're amazing still

  6. Hahaha that's the first time I heard you say something like that Epp ! (I mean it in a good way, don't worry) But I agree that the hype about it is dying down a bit, and it's become more of a trend :)


I love to hear from my readers :) And P.S. I do read your comments ♥
