Why a Non-Golfer should buy a Skort
What is a Skort?
A skort is a single garment that combines a pair of shorts and a short mini-skirt. It is usually worn by ladies who play golf, hockey or netball but it is such an easy garment to wear that it is suitable for all ladies whether or not they play sport. It is an ideal item of clothing for warm sum
Top Feature Number 1
The skort is so comfortable to wear. The shorts underneath are usually made of a soft, thin, light-weight, stretchy material so that movement is not inhibited. Naturally, a golfer, hockey or netball player need lots of freedom of movement and the skort provides this movement.
In warm breezy weather the skort is also perfect. A sudden gust often takes you by surprise but the shorts cover up the top of the thighs to avoid embarrassment.
Top Feature Number 2
Fashionable and Feminine
The skort can be worn not only for most kinds of sports but also for leisure or social occasions. Take a picnic to the park and sit on the grass in comfort, knowing that you are not showing anything you shouldn't!
Take a boat trip wearing a skort and you need not be afraid of the breeze that is created by the movement of the boat. If the sun is shining, your legs are exposed for the much-craved for sun tan.
Go to the beach and sit on a sun lounger in your skort or move to the bar and sip a cool glass of wine. Whatever the activity, you will find a skort that is suitable.
Even going to the pub you can wear a skort, provided it's still a balmy evening!
