7 summer skirts to wear now

Last year was the summer of dresses but this season, skirts are having a moment. Great versatile holiday wardrobe pieces, they can be dressed down with tees and trainers during the day and smartened up with a cami and heels for the evening. Wrap skirts, frill hems, bias-cut satins and tiered maxis are all over the high-street, with a range of prints and fabrics from denim to blousy blooms, monochromatic polka dots and cool linen - here's our pick of the best skirts to pair with our women's flattering fit tees this summer.

Zara

We didn't know we needed a denim maxi skirt until we saw this one from Zara, teamed with trainers (we love Italian brand, Serafini), classic tee and Wayfarers, it's a modern update on a classic 80s look.

Denim maxi skirt, £49

zara floral skirt

This tiered, bold floral print skirt ticks so many summer trend boxes we've lost count. The cinched waist is perfect for a tucked-in tee, pair with white sandals for a fresh, high summer look.

Floral belted skirt, £49

We made it a trio from Zara as there are so many great styles to choose from this season, the third is this tropical print midi in sunshine yellow. Perfect with a crisp white tee for summer hols.

Tropical print skirt, £49

Rixo

 

Polka dots are everywhere this season; we love the ruffle hem on this luxe wrap skirt from Rixo - perfect with our white or black tees.

Gracie Polka Dot skirt, £175

Hayley Menzies

hayley menzies skirt

This 100% silk de chine maxi print skirt from Hayley Menzies needs no other embellishment - pair with our classic white tee and gladiator sandals for a luxe summer look.

Eden red maxi skirt, £295

Massimo Dutti

Striped linen paperbag waist skirt

A paper bag waist is super flattering and smart for summer workwear. Pair with our warm navy tee and leather thong sandals for a cool, yet pulled together hot weather look.

Linen striped skirt, £79

M&S

pleated metallic skirt

Pleated skirts were HUGE last A/W and they're not going anywhere this summer either; this silver jersey number from M&S is such an easy shape to wear (elasticated waist!) - team with metallic sandals and a short-sleeve white tee for a fun, casual summer look - or with one of our black LTD Collection tees and heels for added drama.
