What is "Skort" - Definition & Explanation

This design features shorts covered by a front-wrap (and sometimes a back-wrap also) skirt panel. Basically, the garment is a "short" that also takes the appearance of a "skirt".
Shorts that have a front covering to resemble a skirt.
Short pant legs with a same length or longer skirt sewn over the top.
The term skort (a portmanteau for skirt and shorts) is more widely used in some areas. While some garments sold as culottes resemble short trousers, to truly be a skort it needs to look like a skirt.
