Perhaps one of the most essential articles of clothing to include in your summertime wardrobe is the perfect skirt. With the warmer weather inviting you to spend more time outside, you’ll find yourself turning time and time again to your collection of skirts to keep you cool and help you feel beautiful and put together. So what are some good skirt styles to consider and how should you style them? Take a look at some of our go-to’s as well as four great ways to style them this summer!
Mid length skirts, also known as midi skirts, are skirts that hit just below the knee. A good mid length skirt is known for providing an incredible amount of comfort. They come in a variety of styles, from pleated to tiered and from solid colored to patterned. Lightweight and airy, they’re a must once the weather starts warming up.
Maxi skirts are another fantastic option during the summertime. Coming all the way down to your ankles and sometimes even grazing the tops of your feet, maxi skirts are made with lightweight material. This makes it easy to throw together an ensemble that is both comfortable and cohesive.
A-line skirts are similar to mid length skirts. They have a looser fit and come in a variety of styles. The main difference is that A-line skirts hit just above the knee. They are fitted at the waist and gradually widen as the skirt goes down. These are an easy must-have for warm weather with their looser fit and accommodating length.
Pencil skirts typically hit at or right above or below the knee, and have a more fitted shape and silhouette. Women’s pencil skirts are easy to dress up or down and are incredibly flattering, which is why they easily make it onto our list of summertime must-have skirts.
Now that we’ve covered which skirt styles work well during the summertime, let’s talk about how to style them. Easily one of our favorite ways to style a skirt during the summer is to incorporate other wardrobe basics. You can never go wrong pairing a midi skirt with a basic women’s white blouse and your favorite pair of sandals. Your favorite V-neck tee-shirt thrown on with a comfortable pencil skirt is another easy go-to. Having a handful of basic pieces is essential, which makes it incredibly easy to put together cohesive ensembles.
Dressing up your summertime skirts is another great way to go as the days start to heat up. An A-line skirt with an elegant button-up shirt and a strappy pair of heels is the perfect ensemble for an afternoon out with friends or an evening with your significant other. You could also layer a lightweight cardigan over one of your go-to women’s blouses for an easy look. Pair it with the right bag and a pair of flats and you’re set for the day.
If you’re not wanting to dress things up, it’s just as easy to keep things comfy and casual with your summertime skirt ensembles. A loose tee-shirt thrown on with one of your favorite skirts is an incredibly easy look. Incorporate a French tuck and put on your favorite pair of tennis shoes for an outfit that you’ll easily be able to wear all day long. You could also wear one of your women’s tank tops with a maxi skirt. Throw on a big sun hat and you’re good to go!
There are few things more classic than denim. No matter the time of year, it’s a fantastic way to go. A denim skirt is easy to style with just about anything. Whether it’s a tee-shirt in your favorite color or a patterned blouse to help you make a statement, you can rest assured that just about any top in your closet will go well with a denim skirt. You could also throw a denim jacket over your skirt ensemble to incorporate this classic material.
So as summer approaches and you start thinking about what items you need to include in your wardrobe for the season, you’ll definitely want to include a handful of skirts. They’re easy to style, provide an incredible amount of comfort, and will help you look and feel fantastic. It’s easy to get ready for the day with confidence when you have the right pieces to fall back on, and women’s skirts should be at the top of your list!
