Skirts are one of those staples that we always have stashed in our wardrobes and there are so many styles, shapes and patterns that we can pretty much wear them year round. From our cosy woollen skirts in winter with tights to trendy denim ones, we always have space in our wardrobes for a skirt or two!
Even if you’re not a girly girl, you can easily get away with wearing a skirt without losing the edge off of your style and it’s true that there is a skirt out there for everyone. If you tend not to wear skirts but like the idea of them and how they look, then summer is the perfect time to start embracing them. You won’t have to wear cumbersome and itchy tights, and you’ll find that they are light, comfortable and perfect for those hot and sticky summer days. If you need any more excuses to buy a new skirt this summer, then you should check out these seriously lovely summer skirts right here.
River Island has to be one of our favourite high street brands and that’s simply for the fact that they keep their eye firmly on the catwalk trends meaning that their collections are always filled with gorgeous things that are totally on trend. If you are a bit worried about feeling too exposed when wearing a skirt, then don’t worry since you don’t need to go short to feel cool and fashionable as this gorgeous blue and white striped midi skirt proves. The flattering wrap-over cut coupled with the quintessentially British pale blue and white stripes mean that you will look and feel great when you wear this, and will be able to show off your figure in a flattering and classy way. The ruffling is completely on trend and you’ll be able to dress this skirt up with some heels, or make it more casual with a t-shirt and sandals. Price: £35
Both gingham and bright embroidered patterns are really on-trend looks this season, so this lovely knee-length A-line skirt from Zara combines them to create a bright and brilliant summer skirt. It features a flattering side tie and a ruffled hem (ruffles really are everywhere this season!) that gathers slightly to create a really flattering silhouette. Team this with a lightweight cropped sweater and some trainers for an everyday look that is super fashionable. Price: £49.99
And finally we can’t talk about summer skirts without mentioning the ubiquitous denim skirt which is a perennial favourite. Tap into the 90s trend with a front buttoning slightly A-line skirt in a dazzling bright white that will really show off a tan with this offering from the Noisy May brand. This will look amazing with a slouchy band t-shirt, or with a more structured Breton top, and team with some glittering sandals or some plain white pumps for a gorgeously laidback preppy look. A denim skirt will always be in fashion too, so you really can view this as an investment piece! Price: £24.99
