5 Ways to Style a Skirt This Summer

There’s an undeniable allure to summer fashion that makes me eagerly anticipate this time of year. After months of bundling up in layers, it’s liberating to embrace breezier, more effortless styles. While sundresses often take center stage, I find myself drawn to chic skirts as well. Unlike dresses, which are typically a one-and-done outfit, wearing a skirt requires a bit more style prowess. If you’re seeking new and refreshing ways to style a skirt this summer, allow me to be your guide. Whether you prefer a flowy maxi skirt or a flirty mini, there are countless ways to embrace the skirt this season.

Tailored

This season, tailored pieces continue to be at the forefront of minimal style. The vest, in particular, has emerged as a fan favorite and a standout choice for elevating your skirt ensemble. Recently, I paired a sleek, black maxi skirt with a gray tailored vest, creating an outfit that seamlessly transitions from work to play. To make your ensemble even more striking, consider adding a statement handbag as the finishing touch.

Pop of Red

In case you missed it, all shades of red continue to be one of the most coveted colorways of the summer season. Thus, you would be remiss not to incorporate a touch of this flashy shade into your skirt-centric outfit. You can opt to style a skirt that is red in itself or bring the trendy color into your look with another element. Regardless, don’t be afraid to go big with red!

Sporty Spice

In terms of sporty looks, this summer is all about tenniscore. If you have a tennis skirt in your wardrobe, now is the perfect time to incorporate it into your everyday outfits. Pleated mini skirts and tennis skorts are not only comfortable but also add a fun and flirty flair to your ensemble. To fully embrace the tenniscore aesthetic, consider pairing these pieces with a polo or a cute rugby-style top.

Tonal

There’s nothing I love more than a tonal outfit. Start by choosing a color palette that complements your skirt. For example, if you have a chocolate brown midi skirt, pair it with a coordinating top and sandals for a monochromatic look. Add depth to your outfit by incorporating different shades of the same color, such as a darker brown handbag or belt.

Micro

Styling a mini skirt for the summer is all about balancing comfort and style. Pair your mini skirt with a lightweight, breezy top in a complementary color or pattern. Opt for cozy footwear like chunky sandals or sneakers to keep your look casual and summery. Complete your outfit with accessories like sunglasses and a structured bag for a chic summer look.

 

I hope these looks help you get your creative juices flowing so you can style a skirt all different ways this season!
