While all the teenagers are studying, I am reminiscing.
The night my Junior Cert finished, I went to a party/soirée/candlelight supper/drank 7 Up and ate Pringles while staring at Fachtna from the Boys' School and admiring his 'curtains' haircut and Lynx-drenched Nirvana t-shirt.
But my own outfit was just as thoughtfully put together - a beige skort from Penneys. It was the mullet of waist wear - shorts at the back, split skirt at the front. Looking back at the pictures, I cringed at my style choice but fashion has come full circle and the short is back, baby.
The Zara version that spawned a hundred copies is still going strong, and there are a multitude of Summer-printed skorts coming your way.
Add the return of culottes to the mix and I'm not sure if fashion has started to eat itself.
In name of research, we've put together a gallery of some of the most popular options on the high street. Now tell us, is the skort the new dungarees?
