outfit: how to wear a skort (when you’re not 12)

leopard + a skort // the average girl's guide

I’m wearing a skort. Yeah, putting it out there. I’ve seen this Zara number circulating on blogs for a while now and couldn’t decide if I loved or hated. It’s flattering but a skort for a gal in her 30s? Questionable. Until I tried it on. Love at first wear. My decision was solidified during a 12-hour day in NYC, particularly in and out of cabs. Cuteness of a skirt, convenience of shorts. I now vividly recall the allure! For fall, how cute is the new pinstripe option? These are good. Just be sure to keep the look mature; no shapeless t-shirts, and if you’re going to pair it with a sweatshirt for fall, try doing a half tuck and adding a heel or bootie.

More after the jump, including wear to buy and friends from New York Fashion Week…

And, a quick pick from Lexi’s (far-right) round-up from New York Fashion Week, where we chatted it up with Tara, Kim and Erin outside the tents after the Lela Rose show. If it’s possible, these women are twice as smart and talented as they are gorgeous!
