I love a good exercise dress or pair of running shorts as much as the next girl, but if there's no shorts liner underneath, I'll pass. Whether I'm going on a run or just out for errands in the summer heat, there's nothing more uncomfortable than when my thighs rub together and start to chafe. Luckily, I have found the perfect solution that doesn't sacrifice the cuteness factor: skorts! They've become a massive trend, thanks to TikTok, so my newest obsession is right in line with what's cool this summer.
I've tested out several skorts, but my favorite (and most-worn) piece at the moment is the Old Navy High-Waisted PowerSoft Skort ($25 with code BONUS, originally $33). The shorts underneath don't ride up or move around, so it's by far the comfiest choice. I like to wear mine with cropped tees, such as the Core 10 Soft Pima Cotton Knot-Front Cropped Yoga Tank ($22) pictured above. It looks great with my Lululemon Blissfeel Running Shoes ($148), but I'll also wear it with slides when I'm not working out. If you want the details on my new favorite skort, keep reading.
What I Like About This Old Navy Skort
I'll start with the feature I love most: the hidden pocket. The shorts under this skort (which, as I mentioned, never ride up, even during a sweaty tennis sesh) have a pocket big enough for my iPhone 12 Pro Max. The brand's PowerSoft fabric is buttery smooth, with just a little bit of compression - the skort doesn't feel tight, but it's snug enough to stay on my hips without me feeing the need to pull it up. The fabric is quick-drying, so if I'm exercising, I'm not soaked in sweat all day long.
What's Worth Noting
This skort is true to size - I'm wearing my usual large, and the cut is perfect on me. The high-waisted silhouette sits at the top of my hips just above my bellybutton. The skort is on the shorter side, so if you prefer a longer, more modest length, I'd size up. I would also suggest looking at the 200-plus customer reviews (the vast majority of which are a perfect five stars!) to see how the skort looks on various body types.
Who Is This Skort Best For?
I think this skort could work for anyone. Whether you love to hit the courts for a workout or just want something comfy to hang out in this summer, I would recommend this piece to anybody. I like that I can wear it with my sports bra and sneakers or put it on with an oversized sweatshirt and my slide sandals. It's a versatile piece that will get a ton of use.
This skort comes in sizes XS-4X.
There's a flattering darting detail on each side of the hip area.
The fabric is 81 percent polyester and 19 percent spandex. The directions say to machine wash cold and hang dry, but I've put mine in the dryer a couple of times without problems.
The skort comes in seven different colors: pink, light blue, rust, lavender, white, navy blue, and black.
