A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist and covers all or part of the legs.
In the western world, skirts are usually considered women's clothing.. However, there are exceptions. The kilt is a traditional men's garment in Scotland and Ireland, and some fashion designers,, such as Jean-Paul Gaultier, have shown men's skirts.
