8 Influencer-Inspired Skirt Outfits That Are So Easy to Recreate This Summer

When it comes to dressing for summer, skirts are the item I try to crack every year. They look so easy – and comfortable for those sticky summer days – and yet somehow I always feel like I’m not doing them quite right. The proportions seem wrong, the fit isn’t quite right, and despite my best efforts, I just can’t pull them together with the accompanying pieces to create a cohesive look. This year I decided to finally crack the skirt code and it turns out I’ve complicated the problem immensely.

The beauty of skirts lies in their simplicity. If you choose the right style, these versatile wardrobe staples can fit seamlessly into your everyday outfit, pairing just as well with the tops and accessories you’d normally wear with your jeans or fitted pants. It all comes down to choosing the right skirt.

Luckily, this year there are a number of skirt styles that are trending and also seem particularly timeless. Much of this is down to the fabrics: crisp linen and cottons are wonderfully light and breathable, but also exude the kind of effortless sophistication we all strive to achieve, even on the stickiest of days. This season, voluminous cotton skirts will be everywhere: white versions are a great option for stylish minimalists, but you can also embrace bright colors if you’re looking for a dose of sunny dopamine. If you like to show off your legs, a mini should be your choice: quietly cool, a black mini skirt can easily be dressed up or down with a few style changes.
