Women’s Skirts: Latest Trends & Top Picks
With the wave of athleisure styles taking the fashion world, skirts are definitely on-trend for the foreseeable future.
So what exactly are the different types of skirts that are trending? Maxi skirts and midi skirts will always have their day, but they simply can’t pack the same punch for an active lifestyle that a tennis skirt can. Plus, the feminine silhouette ensures that you’ll look and feel your best at all times.
That’s why the latter two looks have become serious contenders and must-haves for any active lifestyle. Whether you’re hitting the gym and the park frequently or just commuting and running errands, these short skirts will feel and function as good as they look.
Today, we’re running through the must-have features in our style guide for activewear skirts. Let’s go!
What Skirt Features Should I Have?
With all the modern innovations available today, there’s no need to settle for non-functional fashion. Tasc Performance is here to bring you better fabrics and features so that your clothes work for you.
The essential features in any skirt come down mostly to a quality fabric. A lightweight feel, moisture-wicking capabilities, and breathable material should be non-negotiable. Look out for odor resistance, UPF sun protection, and stretch material to take things to the next level
While traditional cotton and synthetic fabrics are common in skirts, neither achieves all the top-quality features above. What features synthetic fabrics do achieve are gained through chemical treatments, which are harmful to the environment, and potentially to you.
For better function and a brighter future, look for organic cotton as a more sustainable alternative to traditional cotton and bamboo fabric to bring all the performance features you need.
Bamboo is one of the best fabrics when it comes to sustainability too. It’s truly the miracle fabric!
Of course, what’s a good skirt if it doesn’t have pockets? Don’t worry—with mindful design, a patch pocket won’t interfere with your performance or your silhouette.
The last thing to look for, especially if your days involve moderate to high-intensity activities, is a built-in compression short. This may not be the first feature to come to mind for skirts, but it’s truly a game-changer!
What Skirt Styles Are on Trend?
Now that we know what we’re looking for, let’s talk about what skirts meet the mark.
Our Rhythm Skirt is the active skirt that does it all. Built with our signature bamboo-organic cotton blend, it’s got the best of the best features for temperature regulation and comfort through any activity.
We didn’t just stop at the fabric, either. You’ll find a patch pocket, inner compression short, and a waistband that can adjust and grip to handle any workout. These shorts hit above the knee, and above the competition.
During the summer months, pair your tennis skirt with a light crop top and cool sneakers or heels for happy hour. In cooler weather, you can also swap out the T-shirt for a sweater and tights with some artfully placed accessories. Tennis skirts are also perfect with cardigans for date night during that in-between weather.
We love a versatile wardrobe piece that fits into several outfits, especially when it’s on-trend like this one.
Sure, denim skirts and pencil skirts will always have their place, but we can’t get enough of tennis skirts. Keeping up with the latest trends is what we do best at Tasc Performance, so stay tuned for all our latest guides on activewear and more!read more
