But through all the fashion crazes, shorts have been constantly trending. And we are gifted with different types of shorts, that can be styled individually and uniquely.

Every girl MUST have a pair of skorts in her closet – no exception, honey. Skorts are a type of short that is a hybrid between a skirt and a short. Super fashionable and can be paired with literally any type of top.
Whether you are going for a casual lunch date or a business meeting, skorts can be fashioned in any way, since they’re super comfortable and chic. One of my fears when I’m wearing a skirt is: what if my clumsy a$$ accidentally flashes everything down there. Thank heaven for skorts!
How to style: Skorts can come in various colours and patterns: you may match them accordingly with a tank top, a floral blouse or if you are going for a more formal look, then this can be your inspo:
