Can you go for a run in a skirt and how do you style it? Here’s everything you need to know about running skirts – skorts.

What to look for in a running skirt?
This depends on the activity. If you’re planning to go for a run, look for a skirt with integrated shorts and lightweight materials. Pockets are a BIG plus, and both of our running skirts got them! Moisture wicking fabric is also a big plus.
