One reason why Lululemon athletic wear is so popular is because it’s so versatile. No matter what you’re doing: yoga, hitting the gym, going for a run, or simply throwing something on for a school dropoff, the clothes look great, fit well, and are super comfy.

An area where Lululemon has been expanding in recent years is golf. Young female players who have embraced shorter-length skorts seemingly wear few other brands. But interestingly, you’d be hard-pressed to find a single golf-specific item online. Despite the fact that the “Golf” tab on the website reveals 113 available items, pretty much everything is specifically designed for something else, like running or tennis, but is also golf appropriate — a great marketing strategy.

One particular item I’m loving right now is Lululemon’s Pace Rival Mid-Rise Skirt Extra Long. The “Extra Long” refers to the addition of two extra inches of material to a popular previous model. I’ve written at length about skort-lengths — as a middle-aged mom, those micro minis don’t have the same appeal they used to! — but this one, which ranges from 15 inches to 16.5, depending on size, really hits the sweet spot: sporty, not too short, not too long. Additional benefits include multiple pockets and lightweight, sweat-wicking fabric.
