How to Wear… Summer skirts

I don’t know about you but I’m getting pretty tired of the wet winter weather. I’m very much a sunshine girl and although I love dressing in the layers of winter, I far prefer the ease of wearing a little less. Think summery skirts!

So, even though summer seems like a while away I thought I would do a little fashion trend forecast and share with you some of the hottest skirt styles to be wearing this spring/ summer!

From the sweet and playful skater to the figure-hugging mini, there’s a skirt to take you from the pool to the party…

The Mini

Summer’s shortest skirt is guaranteed to keep you cool while looking hot! Available in hot, tropical prints, the mini will have you turning heads from the AM to PM.

Pair yours with a matching top or mix it up with a graphic tee and sandals for easy summer style. Then, take the look into night with some wedges and a bright, chunky necklace!


The Bodycon

Day or night, the bodycon works whether the length is mini or midi! Dress it down with a statement sweat and sneakers or glam it up with a bandeau top and metallic heels.


The Skater

Anyone can master the skater this summer! Pair yours with a pastel tee and some retro sunnies for a flirty daytime look.

And when the sun sets team yours with a tucked in, fluffy pullover plus a pair of strappy heels and some statement bling!


The Printed

Prints are going to be huge this summer especially the midriff-baring crop top matching sets – only advisable if you have abs not rolls!

Make your prints pop with oversized accessories in one of the colours from the print.


The Pencil

This very versatile skirt is especially great for those who like to head from the office to a night on the town. Just switch your shoes to some sexy, strappy heels and add some bright lipstick!


The Maxi

Everyone loves a maxi – a really great option for those who don’t like flashing too much flesh…. This skirt will hide a multitude of sins and keep your pins private, which is especially NB if they aren’t your best feature!

Pair this ankle skimming skirt with an oversized white shirt, floppy straw hat and pretty pair of sandals for a lovely long lunch in the sun or wear with a fitted cotton t-shirt, large leather belt and a pair of pumps for a chic office outfit.


So there’s my round up of the most stylish skirts to be wearing this summer for every age, stage or fashion preference… Which is your favourite? And how would you style it? Please share in the comment section below!
