The Best Skirts for Your Style

Skirts are back in a big way. Whether you’re looking to give off the feminine and flirty vibes, pull off a laid back and effortless look or polish up your everyday style, skirts are the answer. And they’ve come such a long way: midis, minis, maxis, tulips, wraps, pencils, jersey knit, silks, get the picture. Find out how to style different skirts to fit your personal style.

The Maxi Skirt

The maxi skirt had its comeback a while ago—now it’s having a renaissance. Stacked with bold patterns & hues, the maxi skirt is not only for our boho-chic goddesses, but street-style mavens, everyday prepsters and professional fashionistas. The cinched waistline and ankle-brushing length of the maxi skirt creates an elongating effect for petite silhouettes and balances out those who identify as pear-shaped. Try it with a wedge heel for extra leg-lengthening height and pair it with a basic fitted tee to show off your shape up top.

The Midi Skirt

Ah, the midi-skirt. It’s a recent must-have in every fashionista’s closet. We don’t blame them—this demure piece is super flattering on every shape, and classes up any outfit without feeling frumpy. The best part? It’s great for any occasion. You could say it’s the chameleon of skirts. Similar to its cousin, the maxi, the high waist has a leg-lengthening effect and shows just enough of your calf and ankle to emanate some #WarmWeatherVibes.

The Pencil Skirt

A business woman’s go-to: the pencil skirt. Pencil skirts are a fabulous staple piece for any professional, but they lend themselves much further than the corporate closet. With clean, hip-hugging lines and a crisp structure, the pencil skirt is a must for our preppy gals. For a little more romance, pair it with a billowing, floral blouse.

Stylist Tip: Pencils skirts usually cling to your curves, so we recommend keeping things simple when it comes to accessorizing. A low heel still lengthens the legs without feeling too sky high.

The Skater Skirt

Summer breeeeeze makes me feel…like wearing skirts with some flounce! When the weather makes you want to spin and twirl with joy, don a sweet skater skirt with a little bounce. Flouncy skater skirts are great for any body shape and add movement to your look—yes, movement. You don’t want to appear stiff while enjoying the perfect picnic or an outdoor concert, do you? Didn’t think so.

Stylist Tip: Let your skirt do the heavy lifting when it comes to styling. Is your bottom half making a bold statement? Balance it out with subtle structure and muted colors for a head-to-toe look.

The Mini Skirt

When you want to show more than a little leg, opt for the mini skirt. Va-va-voom. While the mini skirt is certainly a statement piece, don’t let the short hemline scare you off. Mini skirts can be versatile, too. Get edgy with a moto jacket and low-heeled booties, or keep it simple & sweet with a chic button-down blouse and leather slides—perfect for vacation (or staycation) style.

A-line skirt outfit

The A-Line Skirt

A-line, so fine! With plenty of structure, the A-line skirt is great for our laid back, athletic shapes. Similar to the pencil skirt, but slightly flirtier, A-line skirts tend to closely hug your hips. But since the bottom flares out, it allows for a more laid-back, sporty feel. Try mixing styles with a super feminine off-the-shoulder blouse and some sporty sneakers.

Versatile, cute and functional. It’s a fashion triple threat that deserves some serious props and we are so here for the skirt revival.
