Maybe you’ve gotten into a rut, wearing plain black pants to work everyday and jeans on the weekends. While a cute dress might epitomize the idea of getting dressed up, skirts can create a similarly flattering, feminine look while also allowing you to mix and match with a variety of tops. Skirts can be worn on weekdays and weekends for both formal and casual looks. The trick is to wear the appropriate style and style it appropriately for a fashion statement that’s as inspired as you are.
When you think about wearing a skirt, you probably have a certain go-to look or think of one that’s not quite your style. Whatever your preference, there’s a skirt style that can work well for you. As we take a peek at the three basic skirt lengths, hopefully you’ll realize that each offers possibilities.
Defined as hitting above the knee, mini skirts are generally frowned upon in the office, but that’s okay — they’re great for showing off a little leg when you’re out on the town! Depending on how you style your skirt, it can be a cute option for a casual weekday dinner with friends or a weekend date.
If you’re ready for a fun-loving look, try a colorful mini skirt with a tee shirt bearing a favorite slogan, along with a patterned blazer and your favorite ankle boots. Whether you’re meeting friends for brunch or hanging out at the bar, a mini skirt can help you have just a little bit more fun.
Arguably the most trendy skirt length this year, the term “midi” refers to any skirt with a hemline somewhere between the ankle and the knee. Because they hit at the most slender area of your leg, a midi skirt can look great on just about anyone. Some of our favorites boast bold, colorful patterns or come in metallic fabrics. From fun activities to weekend events, the midi skirt makes a flattering style statement.
Because of the amount of fabric they entail, ankle-length maxi skirts make a major style statement. When you choose one in a particularly bold color or print, you’ll help maximize that statement even more.
For a trendy look, choose a maxi in a lightweight fabric that moves easily and then pair it with a structured jacket to offset the flowing look. Depending on your height, heels may help you pull off this look with a little more finesse.
Of course, skirt length isn’t the only variable when it comes to skirt styles. In our next style post, we’ll look at a few skirt fabric options and how to pull them off.
