Spring/Summer Skirts for 2021 and how to wear them

The style of skirts for 2021 are similar to the past years. Many are midi in length and often in a silk or satin material, however leather has seemingly come into fashion too. This can make it feel difficult to style them, and is often the style my clients want to wear but are unsure on how to style them.

How to style your midi skirts

Let’s start with the most popular of skirt styles for 2021 – the midi length a-line skirt. A tricky one for many of us, and often seemingly styled in a “cool-girl” effortless way. The most popular and easy to wear option with this style of skirt is with a boxy tee tucked into the skirt. However, if you find a skirt that has an added detail such as this Oscar de la Renta leather piece with tie-waist, you can tuck in more structured tops, or formal styling thanks to the structure of the skirt.

If you want to style your midi skirt more formally but it doesn’t have an in-built belt, you can add your own. This can help with making the connection between top and skirt less uncomfortable, as I find the tops of many of the satin versions have a difficult waist to style without a casual look. So whether you style your satin midi skirt with a vest, a boxy top tucked in, a vintage tee that is cropped, a comfortable over-sized jumper, or with a shirt and belt, try out what works for you and feels comfortable.

Tiered skirts

The tiered, poplin style, comes to skirts as well as dresses this year. It’s a very relaxed and comfortable style so expect to feel boho-chique in this look! From feeling your Julia Roberts Pretty Woman-self in this polka dot belted tiered skirt to feeling fully 70’s hippie, you can find an array of tiered midi-skirts across styles and brands. I would recommend trying this style if your go-to personality is more on the boho or romantic side as it works excellently with boho-tops. You can also style them with fitted t-shirts or square necked long sleeve tops tucked into your skirt.

Wrap skirts

The easiest of the trendy skirts for Spring/Summer 2021 is the wrap skirt. While wrap dresses are one of my favourites for this time of year, I haven’t seen wrap skirts in fashion for a few seasons so I am so pleased that this style has come back! These work with everything from white shirting to printed tees, so get creative. From florals to almost structured-professional options, you will find a host of wrap skirt styles to play with.

Which of these skirt styles are you looking forward to trying in the coming months? If you are unsure on how to find the right styles for your body shape, or feel overwhelmed by the ways to style the latest trends, please get in touch.
