The unholy alliance of skirts and shorts, by Rick Owens

So, we guess these are probably what you’d call “skorts” – in other words, a combination of a skirt and a pair of shorts. The “skorts” we’re used to seeing, however, are different from this, in that they generally have the skirt part at the front and the shorts at the back. Rick Owens has basically turned the concept on its head here, putting the shorts at the front, with the skirt dangling at the back, like a train on a dress. Or like a mullet.

Is this what the world has been waiting for, readers? Or is it just an attempt to try and detract us all from those shoes? Oh God, THOSE SHOES…

    WHAT? You mean we don’t all love shoes that make out perfectly pedicured feet look like hooves?
    That being said, If it was a skirt it would be ok, ugly, but ok. This “Mullet Skort” is ugly, pointless and it looks bloody uncomfortable to have all that fabric bunching up between the legs.

    Well, it could be worse. The way the right picture looks, the skorts might even be stuck together with one of the …. ugly-making-your-feet-look-like-big-lumps-thingies…skorts stuck together with ugly footwear anyone?

    It kind of reminds me of the “accidentally-tucked-my-skirt-into-my-underwear-after-going-to-the-ladies-room” look, but in reverse.

    I’m personally glad the puffy, lumpy, muffin-top-badly-tucked-in-shirt-roll thing, that I’ve tried so hard all these years to avoid, is fashionably acceptable now.

    Yeah this definitely looks like an accident already happened. I thought those shoes were socks without toes.
