|It is not shorts. It is not a skirt
It is a SKORT
According to Wikipedia: A skort is an item of clothing that is made to look like a skirt but is not one. It has shorts built into it as to not show your genitals. Lots of people prefer these to normal skirts, as they can be more comfortable.Skorts continue to be popular in sports such as tennis, golf, and field hockey, but have also gained popularity in casual and athletic wear due to brands such as Lululemon. Lululemon's "Speed Up" skort, for example, has gained a following for its comfortable, moisture-wicking fabric and built-in shorts that provide coverage and protection during athletic activities.
A comfortable twill skort designed for effortless ease comes to you with a figure-flattering high-rise waist in a colorful tropical floral print you'll love. You get the sexy look of a skirt from the back and a feminine layered look in the front. So versatile, this easy-fitting pull-on skort can be styled with untucked casual tops or tucked-in dressy blouses.
