I feel like I'm perpetually trying to ramp up my skirt collection, yet somehow it's been hard to find what I'm looking for. The good news is that it's a lot easier to find skirts in the spring and summer, and there are plenty out there now that look promising!
Here's some help if you're in the same boat as me.
Option 1 (Target) - I've shown this before, but I just love it. I absolutely love my floral pencil skirt, and I've gotten asked a lot about it. Last season it was hard to find great alternatives, but I keep showing this Target option because it's a fantastic option!
Option 2 (ModCloth) - If you're not so into pencil skirts, try this one. The flowers are bright, and it can be paired with pink, green, yellow, and white tops or cardigans. But the dark background counters all the brightness in a way that makes it perfect for winter as well. Make it cute and classic with a denim jacket or give it some edge with a cropped black leather jacket.
Option 3 (Fancy Frills Boutique) - I received this skirt recently and LOOOOOOVE it. It has an elastic waist, which is great for my growing belly. Plus it has pockets! It's shown with a yellow top, but because of all the colors in it you can pair it with almost any cheerful color. So fun! It comes in a darker version as well.
Option 4 (Kohl's) - This is a more subdued floral skirt in case you're not THAT into all the floral stuff. :) It's also great for spring and winter, similar to option 2.
Option 5 (Joe Fresh via JCPenney) - A fun ponte striped skirt that's not a pencil skirt. I love the waistband and the button details, and I think the shape is adorable. Pair it with a plain grey tee and sneakers, or add a bright top and wedges to spruce it up.
Option 6 (Forever 21) - This skirt is $11. WHAT? You can use the same styling ideas as I said above, or see the ways I've worn mine.
Option 7 (ModCloth) - This is not technically stripes, but geometric shapes...whatever. It's adorable! Classic yet interesting print that would be great for an office or for the weekend.
Option 8 (Old Navy) - I ordered this from Old Navy, so we'll see how it pans out. It comes in 6 other colors/prints and has pretty good reviews. I've been looking for another striped maxi, so I hope this works out.
Not all spring skirts have to be florals, but if you're going to do solids why not play with interesting textures or cuts? Here are a few that are a little more interesting than a plain jersey cotton skirt.
Option 9 (J.Crew Factory) - Eyelet! <3 It comes in navy too, but why bother when this color is so beautiful? It has a great texture which can be made office appropriate, casual, or fancy schmancy.
Option 10 (ModCloth) - Another texture you could go for is pleated tulle. It's airy and nice, but you can "ground" the look with tougher textures like a denim or leather jacket, leather sandals, or two-toned metallic pumps.
Option 11 (Kohl's) - This *is* a jersey cotton dress, but with a tulip silhouette for a little something special. Comes in 6 colors including a lot of neutrals and looks ridiculously comfortable. Could be a great alternative to a normal a-line maxi skirt.
Option 12 (J.Crew Factory) - Lastly is this J.Crew Factory mini that people ADORE. It comes in 4 colors, all of which I love. I adore it too, but sadly not on me. :( I live vicariously through others who can pull it off!
I was looking for a floral a-line and a striped jersey maxi this season. I got the floral a-line and I hope the Old Navy striped maxi works out. Seems like I'm in good shape!
What kinds of skirts are you hoping to add to your wardrobe this season?
