Skirts exude femininity and allows you to show off your toned legs in most styles. They also provide the breezy feel that no shorts or pants can provide. This season sees a lot of variety in styles, fabrics, colours, prints, decorative objects and finishes. To embrace the latest skirts trend this year, we have compiled a few styles that you can consider adding to your wardrobe.
Box Pleated A-Line Midi Skirt
Knee-length skirts with box pleats fabricated with thick material are very haute couture this season. The A-Line flow is flattering on most body shapes. This skirt is meant to be the star of the show so make sure that you pair it with a minimalistic top. Strappy heels will go nicely with this look.
For a more boho chic inspired look, consider getting a maxi skirt. It is great for laid back events like music festivals. The bohemian skirt is available in different styles to suit your mood. You can find one with artsy prints or even mono-coloured for a pared down look. To subtly show some skin, you can opt for one with a slit. This type of skirt is best worn with wedges, thick-soled slides, or sandals.
For the beach or pool party, a beach skirt is a must have. Meant as a cover up, beach skirts are normally long with a sheer material or crocheted. The slits are thigh-high. Due to the flow of the material and with midi to maxi lengths, the beach skirt can be very flattering for your bottoms.
With sporty outfits moving into the fashion world, the tennis skirts are no exception. Wear it with a crop top and shoes for the ultimate casual look. You can even pair it with a figure hugging sweater. The key is to keep the look simple.
Denim skirts are back with a bang. There are an assortment of styles available like the classic mini, long slim cut, high waisted, front slit, flared, wrap, and skater. Choose between distressed or embroidered or both! Just make sure to choose the ideal length to flatter your silhouette and height.
Business Casual Skirts
Very versatile, a business casual skirt can carry you from office to happy hour. So invest in a minimalistic piece that is easy to match with other pieces. Wear it with a classy plain shirt, a printed blouse or even a T-shirt. Throw a blazer over the latter to complete the ensemble.
This quintessential clothing item allows you to show off your curves fully as it hugs your figure right down to your knees. The pencil skirt works well with a matching bodysuit or crop top if you want to emulate the Kardashians.
Skirts with Complex Shapes
If you want to go out from your comfort zone, try out skirts with complex shapes as seen on fashion shows. With unique asymmetrical details and multi layering of different textures, colours and prints, you are sure to stand out in a crowd.
So think about your style and have fun with mixing and matching them with your tops. But bear in mind that, in terms of colours, black, white, and navy are trending right now. Floral prints are also still in.
