|Skirt + Tight = Skite|
But I didn't, Mary Jane Parrish did. The enterprising Florida tennis-player-turned-sportswear-designer invented the Skite, a one-piece, multi-tasking skirt/tight hybrid that works wonderfully for golf... and a whole plethora of other activities, athletic and otherwise.
Here's the thing, for the majority of female body types... young, old, large or lean... a short skirt actually creates a flattering silhouette. However, many women shy away from the look for fear of over-exposure... and that's where the leggings come into play.
Completely opaque and attached to the skirt, they're available in several cuts, from short... to Capri... to ankle-length, allowing a gal to choose the amount of leg coverage that suits her. Plus, with a couple of different fits, three basic solid colors and panoply of prints to choose from, one can customise the look to a particular sport or activity.
Yes, a Skite is quite the versatile vestment. Have a look at their website theskite.com for additional info and check out their blog skitebuzz.blogspot.com for more on the back story. Then of course, there's a Skite facebook page to keep you completely up-to-date on all things Skite as they develop.
A hat tip for this great golf fashion find goes to the always observant and sartorially sensitive Courtney Capps, (who always looks great in his Khakis).
