Question: What are some tips for wearing skater skirts?
Answer: The skater skirt, aka circle skirt, is sure to be a fashion staple this season due to its versatility. Nothing says freedom like peeling off a pair of skinny jeans and slipping into a flouncy skater skirt for spring. High-waisted shorts had their time to shine last year (not even going to lie: we still adore them), but it’s time for a more feminine spin on things. With a skater skirt, you’re just one simple shirt change away from looking like a corner-office executive, or even that sultry mystery woman at happy hour (because let’s be honest—we all want to be that girl).
Girl next door: Nothing says sweet and innocent like polka dots, a top-knot and a pair of sneakers. This snap-front, polka dot skirt from Urban Outfitters embodies that sweet-neighbor-girl persona perfectly.
Cocktail time: A little high-low hem action only makes things better, especially when it involves a faux leather skirt. Style this little number with a crop top, cat eye, and a pair of red lips. You’re ready for a night on the town.
Presentation ready: A skater skirt with a dropped hemline adds an air of maturity, and the extra structure prevents wrinkling, which is perfect in an office setting where you may be stuck at a desk all day. Try pairing a pale pink skirt with a navy blouse or blazer. This look is both feminine and sophisticated—perfect for that staff meeting coming up!
Sweater weather: Yes, it IS possible to wear a skirt and be cozy warm. Throwing a fitted sweater over a flared skirt, and styled with a pair of booties, is the perfect transition outfit from chilly days to that warm spring sunshine. Tuck in the sweater for a more put-together outfit, or leave it untucked for a, “I just roll out of bed and look this good” look. Try the Ultra Full Skater Skirt from ASOS.
Pretty in pastel: No one can stop talking about the pastel trend that showed up on nearly every runway in this year’s Fashion Weeks—and for good reason. Pastels haven’t been in the spotlight like this since the 80’s, so it’s about time they made a comeback. For the prefect pastel hue, try the Evelyn Scuba Skirt in mint.
