Summer skirts worth ditching your jeans for

Polished pleats, riotous florals, slinky satin styles – it’s safe to say that summer skirts have had a fun update this season. From everyday denim minis to sashay-worthy slip skirts, there’s a style (or several) out there for everyone – here are the ones we have our eye on this summer…



1. Dream in colour

Michael Kors All Over Logo Skirt


Why choose one colour when you can have all of them? Michael Kors have created a pride collection that boasts serious style appeal as well as a powerful message. Team with the matching top for a complete set or wear it solo with a simple cami and pointy-toed flats for a rainbow look you can sport long after pride month.

2. Wild at heart

Whistles, Brushed Leopard Wrap Skirt


The leopard print midi works for every occasion. Keep it casual with a tucked in white tee, a leather jacket and trainers (or chunky boots for those cooler days). To keep it light and office appropriate for work, simply pair it with a knotted silk blouse, barely-there sandals and a classic tote bag.

3. Let slip

Warehouse Bias Cut Satin Skirt


Understated but elegant, the silk, slip skirt has had a modern overhaul over the past few seasons. Team with a logo T-shirt, chunky trainers and a throw-on cardigan for an easy daytime look, or up the ante with a square-necked blouse and barely-there sandals - the possibilities are endless for styling this number.

4. Whiteout

Warehouse Seam Detail Denim Mini Skirt


A refreshingly crisp alternative to your favourite indigo-hued staple, a white, denim skirt will instantly give your outfits the essence of summer. Styling-wise, you can’t go wrong with a classic button-down and trainers for off-duty style. Come evening, dress the look up with a pair of strappy heels and a retro shoulder bag.
