What Is a Skort?
A skort is a combination of a skirt and shorts, from the front you will see it as a skirt, but underneath it has all of the practicalities of wearing shorts.
Used a lot of the time by sportswomen, for activities such as golf or tennis, athletic skorts are now being used more in fashion too! For sports, they tend to be shorter, but you can get long skorts, which tend to fall around knee-length, making them a conservative but wearable option for a range of occasions.
Skort outfits are comfortable to wear and can prevent chafing when spending a long time walking, hiking or sight-seeing. Team with a simple t-shirt and flats for a perfect daytime look!
We compiled a list of the best products to prevent chaffing thighs!
How to Pack Skorts
One way to organize those adorable skorts amazon sells (or anywhere else you buy them) is by using packing cubes. The Compass Rose packing cubes have a numbering and color system so it’s easy to identify where everything is! The video below demonstrates this.

We also put together a five-part YouTube series showing the different methods to use packing cubes for travel. If you use this specific packing strategy, packing cubes can also compress your belongings. This is the secret to traveling carry-on only!
