Check out 7 interesting ways to wear skirts this summer…
#1. Ankara skirt in a three-way wonder
Whatever your favorite style of skirts, this summer wear them printed! Stripes, flowers, polka dots, or even the Ankara print which trumps all prints if you are going for a tribal-chic look. Choose your favorite print but make it contrast. Here, Lisa Folawiyo plays up the details in an Ankara skirt paired with a crop top and jacket of a similar print. But here’s the catch: the jacket and skirt flaunt different hues.

#2. Maxi crochet skirt in full pomp
The long skirt is a long-standing ally we like to wear in summer. In the summer heat, it emphasizes the silhouettes and conceals the complexes. Maxi skirts are a wild card that you can play at any time plus they are very comfortable and versatile. This season, give a leg tease in a maxi crochet skirt that does well to put your legs in full view. Make this even more interesting with a voluminous sleeve crop top. In addition, you can define your waist using a sling belt just like Nina Sandbech has done below.

#3. Midi skirt in an oversized party
High-waisted, pleated, or otherwise, the midi skirt never stops turning heads. What makes them even special is how they sit stylishly between mini and maxi as though luring you in, but not giving too much away. Flared, light, or warm, the midi skirt exudes timeless elegance and glamour. You can still show off your legs with the introduction of a slit and add some dimension with an oversized top.

#4. Mini skirt in a detailed look
Mini skirts are a must-have this summer because they are seductive and comfortable at the same time. Both a symbol of feminine emancipation and an indisputable fashion basic, the mini skirt is everywhere. Since the ’60s, it has represented certain freedom of thought expressed by the way of dressing. The mini skirt reveals the legs, sublimates femininity, and frees movement. Pair a neutral-toned mini skirt with impressive details with a neutral-toned shirt dress and bold-colored shoes for an edgy look.

#5. Flirty mini skirt in a girly two-piece tale
Well known in the wardrobes of girly girls, flirty skirts are fizzy and perfect for women this summer. While these mini wonders have taken many forms over the years, this season, they are making a case for cute prints that conjure the feeling of summer fun. Think lemon prints, bright colors, and rich textures that provide an easy-breezy, beautiful vibe. Get them in a coordinated set for an even more impactful look. After all, two times is really the charm.

#6. Fringed skirt in a boho world
The fringed skirt is among the chicest and most feminine skirts to own this summer. It is in fact a type of skirt that flatters the silhouette and, depending on its length (and style), enhances the legs and waistline. If you choose a textured skirt like Juliette Foxx, keep the rest of your look simple.

#7. Asymmetric skirt in hip monochrome
The asymmetrical skirt is a piece to wear this season as it gives your look an edgy flair. The irregular and strategic cuts make it unique compared to other types of skirts. Also, because they are asymmetrical, they give a flattering slimming effect. For a mega street style moment, pair with a similar toned top and shoes. Also, you can play up the edginess of the skirt with a baseball cap and a solid-toned bag that offers a pop of color.
