There seems to be a new trend in exercise-wear: the running skirt. Though women have worn skirts in sports like tennis, we can't help but think: a skirt for running? Really?
Lately there have been quite a few women working out in exercise skirts -- you know, the ones they wear playing tennis? Though you don't have to wear bloomers underneath to cover up your undies (since they have shorts attached), we're wondering -- WHY? Are they functional, fashionable, flattering? Don't think so. We did a little digging and found out how short these things are. Unless it was hiding our cellulite, stretchmarks and bellies, you wouldn't find us wearing these skimpies on the elliptical machine. Then again, you probably won't be finding us on the elliptical, period. What do you think of the looks below? Yay or nay?
This daring skirt from Nike hits just below the booty (that is, if your butt hasn't been pulled down by gravity.) It does have an itty bitty short attached -- that may help cover you up a bit.

Does the raspberry sorbet color inspire you to jet out of the house and go for a jog? Includes "bumhuggers" and a teensy pocket for your keys and credit card. Going out clubbing afterwards?
Super cute but almost too cute for running since it doesn't look like exercise wear. Maybe it would work for a bathing suit cover?

One runner said she felt like "Sporty Spice" wearing this skirt. We're not sure if that's a good thing.
"Long enough to cover the upper thigh." Yikes. That's it?
