Spring and summer are (finally) on the horizon, and as temperatures start to rise, so will hemlines. After all, you know what they say: Sun’s out, stems out — or something along those lines. Soon, it’ll be time to shed the many bulky, and winter wardrobes staples can be swapped out for lighter pieces. The argument over whether or not skinny jeans are in style will be somewhat pointless because, why wear pants when you can wear skirts?
Skirt outfits certainly aren’t seasonal, but they’re a lot more enjoyable to wear in warmer months when you don’t need to account for harsh weather conditions.
With a Graphic Tee
Skirts can give off a formal vibe, but adding a graphic tee automatically creates a laid-back aesthetic. Tuck it in and pull on a blazer for business casual occasions, or knot it and complete the look with a pair of chunky combat boots. And, don’t be afraid to mix graphics tops with patterned bottoms.
With a Blazer
A blazer is one of those items that never goes out of style, and 2021 is certainly not going to be the year that changes. You can go classic by pairing one with a pencil skirt, or mix it up with a flowing mini or maxi, adding a tailored contrast up top.
All-black ensembles are still appropriate in the warmer months, so don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Grab your favorite knee-high boots while it’s still chilly, keep your go-to flats and flops on standby for the upcoming season, and get moody with monochromatic pieces.
Mixing and Matching
In case you need a friendly reminder, there are no rules in fashion, which means “matching” is a style, not a necessity. So, wear the plaid skirt with a tie-dye top and mix polka dots with stripes. Color coordinate if you’d like, but know it’s not mandatory.
With A Button Down
An easy way to add structure to free-flowing maxi skirt outfits is with a crisp button down top. Tuck it into the high waisted bottom, knot it, or add a belt for some definition and to accentuate your waistline.
