Why bother having to decide between wearing a skirt or shorts, when now you can wear both! The latest summer trend no doubt taking over your Instagram newsfeed is the skort. If the combination of names hasn’t already given it away, the skort is a pair of shorts that are made to look like a skirt. With a fabric panel across the front to resemble a skirt, a skort has all the comfort of a pair of shorts with the chick femininity of a skirt.

Skorts are essentially skirts with a pair of shorts hidden underneath, though they’ve become the must have statement piece for summer. Labels such as Zara, ASOS, Witchery, Missguided and Beginning Boutique have made this combination apparel look appealing and desired. With an endless array of colourful options to choose from, the skort is best paired with a plain tee for a casual summer look.

The skort is a regularly used term in some regions, though it’s only just caught on in our humble abode. With girls across the country rocking the ‘shorts that look like a skirt’ look there doesn’t seem to be any complaints with this newly adopted trend.

Skorts were initially developed to provide more freedom to do activities such as sports, gardening, cleaning, or bike riding, yet maintain the appearance of a skirt. Skorts are most often part of female athletic uniforms and are most popular in sports such as hockey, tennis and golf.

Becoming an immediate favourite on the Ladies Professional Golf Tour of the 1960, professional golfers famously known for first wearing skorts were Natalie Gulbis & Paula Creamer.

Today in the fashion world, skorts have become an essential garment. Rightly so, as the comfort and style of the skort makes it a winning statement piece for the summer season. Similar to the spork, the skort is a tribute to the end result of two great things combining. The multiplication of a skirt and shorts is a unique yet popular trend and will doubt become prominent in all retails throughout the summer.

Get naked, get dirty, get rough, get clean.  It’s that simple.

Gossling, Harvest of Gold

Helen Croome is Gossling. She hails from country Victoria and has that distinctively sweet sound, which we’re all familiar with.

Her style is both distinctive and alluring, making for an intriguing listen. Gossling’s songwriting is a mix between of heart-felt lyrics and memorable melodies.

Her debut album, Harvest of Gold, is a catchy collection of pop tunes demonstrating a progression from those signature folk roots. This album has a more influential electronic and disco vibe. A brew of rhythmic celebrations, this full length release is  evidence of Gossling’s growth as an artist.

The album is pure in its simplicity, but manages to reach new heights of experimentative bliss. Gossling’s art of storytelling mixes in with symphonic beauty and leaves you tenderly enlightened. An overly pleasing album, a harvester of its own gold if you will.
