Skirty, Flirty & Thriving
If you’re anything like us, you must love any opportunity to dress up to the nines and show off your style. One of our favorite ways to add some chic to our look is through skirts. Whether it’s the sweltering heat and you want something easy going and breezy or you want to layer up to keep yourself cozy and snug during the cold and gloomy winter months, skirts are a staple for every season. And lucky for us, just like jeans, skirts come in an array of silhouettes and styles to choose from for every occasion. You’re not confined to a limited look which can only be worn a certain way, the versatility of a skirt is on par with any other wardrobe essential that earns its money’s worth and can be styled in multiple ways. Below are some of our favorite skirt silhouettes for the year and how we like to style them.
Split Hem Skirts
Split hem skirts are a great way to add some flirtiness to your everyday rotation. A midi length skirt with just above the knee split is the perfect blend of seriousness and fun. Pair it with a solid colored, fitted bodysuit and high heels and you’ll be turning heads anywhere you go. Our current wish list topper is the HNH Harper skirt, a denim skirt in a pastel purple shade that’s sure to keep things cool and refreshing. Combine it with a basic tee or a tank top for a casual and relaxed look.
The High Waisted Mini Skirt
Perfect for the warmer season, mini skirts add a certain quirkiness to your everyday look and can be styled in a laid back, casual way or dressed up for when you want to be the center of attention. Every stylish wardrobe must have a black skater mini skirt or a fitted jersey skirt that you can throw on when running errands or out for a walk through the park. A flouncy mini skirt is an all time staple for every fashionista, pair it with a basic white tee, some sneakers, minimal accessories, half up hair and you’re all set for the day.
Wrap skirts and dresses have a made a huge comeback this year and rightly so. They add a certain dreamy romance to your look and can be styled in a variety of ways. They work well for offices and as well as a fun, party outfit. Pair a solid colored wrap skirt with a flowy blouse, ballet flats, a high ponytail for a pulled together early morning meeting look. You can easily shift the look from day to night time with just a change of shoes, add some heels and you’ll be ready to hit the town with your girls.
The perfect length for a skirt, midi skirts are universally flattering for every body type and can be worn for any occasion. We’re obsessed with the HNH Hannah skirt at the moment. A dreamy, flowy silhouette layered with soft tulle and available in two color ways. You can top it with a button down blouse for a serious office look that’ll impress everyone at work or pair it with a form fitting bodysuit and lace up flats for a chic evening look.
A fun way to add some color to your otherwise mundane look, printed skirts are an instant mood lifter. Especially as we move towards the colder season when the general atmosphere can be dull and dismal, a printed skirt can do wonders in altering dispositions towards a more cheery side. An abstract, neutral print skirt with tie waist detail like the HNH Yzma skirt is perfect to brighten up those overcast winter days. Style it with a snug, knitted jumper in neutral gray, a cozy beanie and Chelsea boots and you’ll look like the protagonist of a dreamy hallmark movie. For a more fun summer look, you can opt for tropical prints that will remind you of the vacations past while we patiently wait for things to return to normal.
