How do you feel about skirts? Some women absolutely love them, and some women are skeptical about how they look in skirts. I’m here to bring skirt skeptics around to trying this trend! With the many skirts on deck this spring, you’re bound to find one style you love wearing.
There are so many reasons to invite more skirts into your daily wardrobe repertoire. Skirts are flattering, comfortable, and easy. Skirts can transform your look, so if you don’t usually wear them, you’re going to turn some heads when you start!
For skirt lovers, it’s time to rejoice as this season brings in your favorite wardrobe staple to the forefront of fashion.
Skirts can range from flowy to flirtatious to totally professional. There is a style that’s waiting for you to try, so without further ado, let’s look at this season’s skirt trends.
Belted skirts are worn at the natural waistline to cinch a naturally narrow waist, or to create the illusion of a whittled waist. There are many different kinds of belted skirts, from wide belts to skinny belts. Tuck in a blouse or wear a bodysuit if you want a slimmer silhouette with your belted skirt. Choose a neutral, breezy belted skirt that is versatile enough to pair with different tops and footwear all the way through the summer.
Pleated Midi Skirts
Midi skirts are timeless and can be worn in the office or on vacation, as they truly look stunning in any setting. Pleated skirts have made a major comeback this season. These skirts are versatile and flattering for everybody. Pleated skirts give an outfit texture and flair, so pair with simple top like a crisp white blouse or a crewneck sweater. Check out this elegant, floral pleated skirt perfect for any spring occasion.
Maxi skirts are the well-known super comfortable skirt that can be worn throughout spring, summer, and even into the warm fall days. The greatest thing about maxi skirts is how flowy and put-together they look while you stay totally cool and comfortable. Depending on the style and fabric, maxi skirts can be worn to the office, the beach, and anywhere in between. Wear a chic maxi skirt with your choice of a tucked-in blouse, t-shirt, denim jacket, tank, or a top knotted on the side at the waist.
Ready to make a retro statement? Investing in a great leather skirt will be a trend you can wear this spring and again in the fall. If you love a good leather statement piece, try a skirt for a classic, yet trendy way to wear leather. Leather can be paired with other fabrics like silk, denim, sweaters, or basic tees, making this statement piece surprisingly versatile. Try this belted leather pencil skirt with a statement blouse.
A stylish comeback from the 1960s and early 70s is the wrap skirt. Decades ago, wrap skirts were typically long, at least ankle-length, but today, wrap skirts come in a variety of styles and lengths so you can find the one that’s best for you. Wear a wrap skirt at the waist, and you can also adjust the waist and hip sizes allowing for a comfy, customized fit. Try an asymmetrical A-line wrap skirt with a button-down shirt for the office or pair with a floral blouse and denim jacket for a day out.
