Don’t skirt the issue! Let’s talk: skirts! Skirts are probably best categorized by length: minis, midis, and maxis. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry! We’ll guide you through all of the options and our personal style recommendations!
Mini skirts end anywhere above the knee. They’re super cute and flirty and will honestly work for most occasions, save a corporate work setting or formal occasions. For daytime events, a structured mini skirt will look best. Depending on the weather and season, they’d look equally great with a tie-front top or a cropped sweater. You could also go for more contrast in your outfit by pairing it with an oversized jacket, too. For an evening version, bodycon mini skirts are really popular. More form-fitting and snug, they pair well with fitted bodysuits and other styles suited for clubwear.
Midi skirts include cuts that end at or around the knee. If you’re worried about a wardrobe mishap with a mini, opt for this length that lessens the risk! Try out a button-front or A-line midi skirt. These skirts have a lot of volume and feel really posh and princess-like. They remind us a lot of poodle skirts in the 50s! For a modern version, offset the full silhouette with a muted color. A neutral beige or even a darker jewel tone can be really versatile. We love how fashion editors pair a midi skirt with turtleneck top for an easy elegant look. If you prefer a more streamlined silhouette, there are ribbed midi skirts, pencil skirts, and wrap skirts in a midi length. These can also be styled in a variety of a ways. Because of its sleek shape, a charcoal grey ribbed midi skirt can go from the office to happy hour in no time flat. However, if you’re choosing something a little more out-there, like a faux leather pencil skirt with checkered trim, then it’d be best to save that for the after-hours.
Maxi skirts are the floor-grazing cuts we know you all adore. The summer appropriate options are typically done in a floral print and made of a light airy fabric like chiffon. They’re very romantic and channel serious boho vibes. They look gorgeous billowing in the breeze at any brunch time event. For a formal alternative, try something with a more draped fabric like metallic pleats or a ruffle skirt. Even a simple black maxi skirt can turn up the heat with a thigh-high slit.
