They say fashion trends reappear every couple of decades, well that argument is certainly true for tennis skirts and skorts. In the early 2000s, women wore them everywhere off of the court, and now they are returning to stores by the dozens. There's good reason why skorts are so popular, they look like a mini skirt but there's no fear of being accidentally, um, exposed. They are cool in warm weather. And they are super comfortable.
We've rounded up 10 skorts that we've been eyeing since the weather warmed up. Whether you're playing tennis, walking your dog or just running errands all of these options are sure to become summer staples.
Oalka Pleated Skirt
This skirt from Oalka is just as functional as it is pretty. The mesh shorts and flowy skirt keep you cool, and the wide elastic waistband has an internal adjustable drawcord for a perfect fit. Two side pockets can hold tennis balls or other essentials. Plus, it's available in 20 colors and patterns so there's sure to be at least one you like.
"My mom always told me, when you like how something fits you should buy it in every color. Well, I now have four of these skirts and plan on buying more," raved a fan.
Baleaf Tennis and Golf Skirt
Baleaf's skort is made for physical activities. A double-layered triangle-shaped gusset prevents it from riding up and pinching while simultaneously enhancing your range of motion. And if you plan on walking or jogging in this, there's a cable hole for easy access to headphones. There are also pockets on each leg. Available in 20 colors.
"I purchased five different colors and may have to see if there are more to choose from. The Baleaf Tennis Skirt is my new go-to summer wardrobe FAVORITE! All-day comfort and easy casual styling. If I am not in a summer dress then you will find me dressed exactly like this," wrote one happy shopper.
Althleta Ace Tennis Skort 15.5"
For those looking for a longer style, this skort from Altheta is just for you. The special wicking fabric dries quickly and keeps you cool. In addition to the two pockets on the inner shorts, there's a zip pocket on the back waistband to hold small items like keys and a credit card. Available in five colors and sizes XXS to 3X.
Reports a five-star reviewer: "I started to like skirts recently (especially the skorts). I saw this one in yellow and knew that I had to have it!!! I love the movement of the skirt and it makes me so happy wearing it! I love the feel, the shorts with pockets (where I can put my phone) and it is hidden, and the color!!! Also high-waisted! Highly recommend!"

Lululemon Court Rival High-Rise Skirt
The longer short on this pick from Lululemon adds plenty of coverage for the most vigorous of activities. There is a dual-entry pocket in the liner to hold a tennis ball, phone and much more.
"I picked tennis back up after years/decades of not playing. I am 41 years old and spent time and money trying on skirts that I thought were a combo of cute and a bit modest. This skirt hits the mark! I was nervous because it did not have a drawstring waist but you have nothing to worry about - it stayed put. I just ordered the all-white version of this. I never leave reviews but thought this might be helpful given the time I spent to find this," wrote a shopper.
Wilson West Side Tennis Skirt
Wilson just launched a performance-based tennis collection featuring gear you'd want to wear both on and off the court. This skirt is a must-have because it boasts anti-odor fabric, two- and four-way stretch material and chafe-free compression for excellent comfort. Plus, it looks great!
Wilson Midtown Tennis Skirt
Wilson included UV Protection within the fabric of this tennis skirt to prevent harmful rays from getting through and penetrating your skin. Additional features include quick-drying fabric and a compression waistband. Available in six colors.
All in Motion Stretch Woven Skort
The lightweight fabric of this skort from Target has a four-way stretch so it moves with you throughout the day. Moisture-wicking properties with a quick-dry finish help to keep you cool and refreshed. We especially like the wide waistband and the three (!) pockets. Available in seven colors and in sizes XS through 4X.
"Love that it can be dressed up or down. Very comfy and a great length. Sized down and fits perfectly. Bought 3 of them!" added a delighted shopper.
Outdoor Voices Court Skort 4.5"
For anyone obsessed with a current color-blocked trend, the Court Skort is for you. The skirt is 15.5" in length and there's a pocket on the bike shorts to fit a phone and keys.
"The Court Skort is my all-time favorite OV item (which is saying something). It is perfect for any activity and so comfy to travel in!! A must-have summer staple," a satisfied customer wrote.
