21 Best Summer Skirts to Wear In 2022

The skirts you won’t take off this season, from mini to maxi to all lengths in-between

Widely loved for their versatility and breeziness for the warmer months of the year, skirts are a staple in anyone’s wardrobe. They’re very versatile and easy to style with just about anything: t-shirts, camisoles, crop tops, or sweaters. Some of them are also a great option to transition into cooler temperatures, by just styling them with a pair of boots. And adding them to your wardrobe has never been easier: they’re everywhere at the moment and in all possible lengths and patterns. Here are our favorite styles and some of the skirts we’ll be adding to our wardrobes.

Mini skirts

Since their popularisation in the 60s, mini skirts make their comeback year after year, especially during the summer months. The key to styling them correctly is balancing their length with something longer on top, like a t-shirt or a shirt. Some of our favorite styles for this season come in tweed, pleats, and the classic short tube mini.

Denim skirts

Like jeans, denim skirts go with everything. They’re very easy to pair and also come in an array of lengths, from minis to maxis. Choose a lighter wash for a more summery look, and style it with a pair of sandals or sneakers for maximum comfort during the day and a pair of black strappy heels at night.

Button-front skirts

A 70s trend that comes back year after year, button-front skirts are a favorite of many, and no wonder why: the A-line silhouette is very flattering and the button detailing makes any outfit more interesting.

Midi-skirts

Probably the more sophisticated of them all, midi-skirts are for anyone looking for a chic and feminine look that can be worn almost everywhere. There’s no going wrong with them: at work with a flat shoe (like ballerinas, they’re very on-trend this season), and with a pair of heels for after -work drinks or a dinner date.

Slip skirts

The definition of Parisian-chic, slip skirts used to be worn as underpinnings for dresses or other skirts. Now we’re wearing them out and letting them shine on their own: they have the power to elevate any outfit, from sneakers and a big cozy jumper for fall to a cami top and sandals for summer. If you don’t have one in your wardrobe, now’s the time.

Maxi skirts

Probably the most wearable of them all, maxi skirts are a true staple in anyone’s wardrobe: a very practical choice for spring and summer but also a great piece to style during fall and winter. They’re very easy to pair with sandals and sneakers but also with all boot lengths, and make you feel comfortable and effortless instantly.
