Try the practical trend for as little as $18



Taylor Swift’s skorts era is still going strong.

The “Karma” singer has been spotted in various versions of the skirt-slash-shorts style throughout the summer. Most recently, Swift left a star-studded album release party at Electric Lady Studios in a gray pleated skort that showed off her toned legs. The 12-time Grammy winner wore the preppy pick with a one-shouldered black tank top, a Louis Vuitton crossbody bag, and Gucci knee-high black boots.



Although Swift’s skort costs a whopping $625, you don’t have to dish out as much to try the trend yourself. We found nine similar styles at Amazon, Revolve, Madewell, Athleta, Free People, Abercrombie, and Cider — and prices start at $18.
