(Ph/Danielle)

Are we going to talk about how everyone - both cyber and of the flesh and bone variety - owns this structured, asymmetrical mini? I know, it is depressing when fashion breeds an army of clones, but that's what you get when the King of Affordable comes up with a design that is of-the-moment, on-budget and off-beat. So yeah, in true cookie cutter form, watch me signing up.

Aye, aye, Sir.

Let's not play who wore it best, though, as Leandra owns the rights to that game, and I'm a sore loser.

Being part of a clone army had its pros and cons. On the one hand, people stop greeting you with an outstretched arm and the begging question by way of hello "I love your skirt" (which doesn't sound like an interrogation, but the implied "where is it from?" is always palpable), to which you are bound by universal convention to reply by spelling out the particulars.

"Cheers, it's a skort actually. Zara is selling them like hotcakes".

This silent contract asking that full sartorial information be disclosed is used so extensively nowadays that I find it hard to take a compliment without worrying about how much these tokens of appreciation are actually an assessment as to my choice of labels. But that's me being cynical; I'm aware most of the time the question is merely posed so that the asker can swing by the nearest high-street dispenser on his way home to pick up my outfit. I digress. Point is, if the issue of what you are wearing is out of the way, people can genuinely be happy to see you, wandering eyes aside. And the others? They won't have to fake social niceties to get the name of the game handed to them on a plate. Win, win.

On the other hand, loosing sight of individuality is bad for the soul.

Jokes aside, I'd be happy for us to take a moment to acknowledge that the fedora and fluffy knit add a whole new dimension to this high-summer piece.Well, do they? I like to think so, but then again I may just be humouring myself.

Gotta dash folks, see you - and your origami skort - around.

I'm wearing: Tibi sweatshirt - Zara skort, clutch and lace pumps (or here) - H&M new icons fedora

  7. I love your interpretation of the skort. I do own it as well, both in black and white, and I expect to meet many "skort twins" throughout the season. Still I think you can make it look different by adding your individual style - and yours is perfection! xo, Christina

  16. I love this skort from Zara, i've seen it on the website and i think more and more that i will take it in black! it's very original and i think it's confortable too because it looks like a skirt but you wear a short for real and everybody knows that a short is more confortable than a skirt! by the way, great look, i love it!

  17. Amazinggg!!! The thing with you is, whenever you wear a piece that a ton of people have you always make it look completely different, definitely not cookie cutter :D

  32. Ah, toutes ces questions qui résonnent aussi chez moi avec le pourquoi du comment faire pour porter ce "skort" afin qu'il passe différemment de ce qu'on voit sur tout le monde depuis qu'il est disponible en boutiques. Peu d'uniformes originaux jusqu'à maintenant mais ta tenue fait la donne ! Ça me plait.

  38. Everyone has that skirt... I mean skort. But who cares? It's cute. And that sweater is awesome. Tibi is doing such good things lately... or maybe they always have and I just didn't notice. Regardless you look great!
