What is "Skirts" - Definition & Explanation

An apparel item stitched with zip opening or buttons, with pleats or round wrap, which comes up to knees or down the feet, which starts from or above the waist line.
A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped women's garment which hangs from the waist and covers the legs. Unlike pants, a skirt is not divided. A dress (also frock, gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice or with a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment.
