The Zara Skort That's Taking Over the World

Karolina Kurkova is one of the world's most successful supermodels. She probably shops Dior and Gucci like I would Old Navy or Forever 21. But what does she want to buy with that bank account? The Zara skort. It looks pretty sharp with a moto jacket.

Thanks to the hem, it spins an easy black and white color-blocked look into something a little more interesting.

Mix it with an old concert tee (or one you bought off Shopbop but are pretending is from a thrift store) to bring out the fresh, irreverent side.

Pair it with a delicate lace top for a cocktail party look that's got a touch of something different at the hem.

It also comes in bolder colors that stand up well to graphic tees and printed sweaters.

Wanna get a different use out of it? Add a top in the same color and similar fabric as the skort, and it'll look like it's a romper. (Pretty cool, considering nicely-fitting rompers aren't the easiest to find.)

It's definitely summery, so a baseball tee and some gingham shoes make fitting complements.

It's trendy. Which, by definiton, means it pairs well with other slightly trendy things like moto jackets and gladiator sandals.

Go ahead and work it into more calm, classic looks, too.

Simple stripes and sharp blazers turn it into a fashion editor-y outfit.

If you can find the red or blue in your size, we recommend you buy them too, not just the white or black versions. They're punchy and cool and just, you know, fun.

The best part about it might be that it's interesting enough that you can toss a plain white t-shirt on top and still feel done. It's a lazy day savior.

Every couple months, a fast fashion chain knocks it out of the park on one particular thing out of the roughly 80 zillion that revolve through their doors each season. Three months ago, Zara did it with this statement shoe: a lace-up stiletto both Nicholas Kirkwood-looking and Steve Madden-priced. It was yellow and blue and black and white, and everybody was g-chatting about it or making pit stops after work to buy a pair.

Now the spotlight's on the brand's skort. With an asymmetrical hem and wrap-style front, it's polished in an off-kilter way, like those fancy envelope skirts from last fashion week. But it's also a skort, not a skirt, so as much as you can wear it to work with a blazer and silk blouse (you know, provided it's not too short on you), you can also sit Indian-style in it for a picnic or run errands in it without worrying about wind. For the not-unreasonable price of $49.90, it really serves a lot of purposes, so it's no wonder I've seen so many girls in this office building wearing it. But that's only the tip of the trend: click through below to see the skort in action on girls all over the country. Then click here to buy it before it's all gone.
