Are Skorts Still a Thing?

God, I hope not.
Catching up on my trends on after a few weeks of slacking was a jarring experience. How, after enjoying myself for a mere 2 weeks, did such a revolution of Skorts come back?!
Granted, these styles were shown in the A/W '12 shows, which took place this past Spring, but like many runway looks, I never thought they would translate into the real world!
According to, however, these "skirt trousers" have "grown up and got sophisticated". Some of these looks are too reminiscent of when I was in 8th grade and just discovered leggings, and thought that they looked FAB with a jean skirt and flip flops. Oh, the horror.

Although this look is lightyears better than the skorts I remember, I am still quite quite dubious as to who would purchase an ensemble such as this from Louis Vuitton? Also, what occasion yields a skort ensemble? Does the invitation to a tennis match read, "Dress Skorty-Casual?"

This was just a perplexing way to begin my Monday morning.
