When pants are too hot, and shorts seem too skimpy, then a cute summer skirt is a great way to look casually smart. Here are five popular summer skirt styles and what to wear them with.
White Jean Skirt
Whether you’re sightseeing on vacation or popping over to a friend’s backyard for a weekend barbecue, a cute jean skirt looks sporty and hip. Wear it with a simple fitted t-shirt or dress it up with a lively patterned, sleeveless blouse. Add some pretty jewelry and cute sandals, and you’re out the door!
Summer Maxi Skirt
Many of you tell me you’re concerned about wearing short skirts in summer because you have spider veins or pale legs. If this is the case, then why not think about a pretty summer maxi skirt? Choose a maxi skirt with some interesting detail like this front wrap slit, and pair it with a simple tank top. Jeweled sandals and a great bag help elevate the look to casually chic.
Summer Midi Skirt
A flowy midi skirt is another breezy summer look. All you need to go with it is a soft tee and some fab accessories. A simple tote and lace up sandals do the trick. This yellow, gray color combo is so fresh and modern.
Classic Denim Skirt
Denim skirts are always in style, but after 40, you’re best to trade in your jean miniskirt with the frayed hemline for something a little more grown-up. An A-line denim skirt can be worn many ways and works for any figure, especially pear-shaped ladies. Style your skirt a touch sexy by adding a sleek off the shoulder top (so popular this summer). Bright accessories give this outfit a burst of energy.
A skirt can be fabulous because of its color, style or its interesting texture. This flirty, pleated A-line skirt is proof of that. The crinkled pleats add a creative, laid-back vibe. A white v-neck top and pearl and gold accessories give this outfit a ladylike touch.
