TwitterI noticed this on my friend Chris's Twitter stream today and, after chuckling, I immediately got on ShopStyle to find out if the skort was indeed making a comeback.

Or technically, a come.

Because as far as I know, skorts for grown-ups have never been in style.

Well, you'll never believe what I found ...

Lilly Pulitzer SkortHorrors! One of my favorite designersl, Lilly Pulitzer, is all over this trend with more than half a dozen skorts up for sale on its site. You'd never know this Iris Skort Printed Lemon (Lilly Pulitzer, $118) had shorts underneath, would you?

 

Stella McCartney SkortStella McCartney got in on the trend with this Satin Skort (Bergdorf Goodman, $234 on sale). I don't think anybody's going to be playing on the monkey bars in this look!

 

SkortAnd if you're looking for a skorty good deal, Macy's offers this Karen Scott Skort (Macys.com, $12.74 on sale). Hmm. Almost all the skorts I found seem to be deeply discounted. I wonder if that's saying something about the look?

Personally, I think I'll be skipping the skort trend. The last thing I need when I opt for a summer skirt is a bunch of fabric up in there. And if I'm going to be on the monkey bars? I'll wear shorts.

But what about you? Would you wear a skort?
