What is difference between skirt and kilt?

  • Kilts are pleated only in the back, never in the front. Skirts and dresses can be pleated all around or not at all. 
  • Kilts are always "rap around" and fastened with a belt buckle or with an actual belt. Skirts and dresses can be fashioned in any way. 
  • Kilts go only to the knees. Skirts and dresses can be of virtually any length. 
  • Kilts are the only things that usually look okay with a sporran. Skirts and dresses, not so much. 
  • Kilts are of Gaelic origin. Dresses come from anywhere and anywhere. 
  • Kilts are traditionally worn by men. Skirts and dresses go to the lasses.
