Fashion Feature: Skirts

It’s been a while since I last posted something fashion related but I was really happy about the response with the last post so I have decided to write another one. I have been thinking about what fashion topic I should talk about and I decided to talk about…SKIRTS!!!

Skirts are a great way of changing up your outfits and provoking different moods/ personalities. For example, a skater skirt allows you be free, fun and quirky whereas a pencil skirt can make you look sharp, sophisticated and chic. To add to that, they can be worn at any point of the year as long as they are styled in the right way. So who cares if its currently summer/ autumn… Grab your skirts! In this piece I will be mentioning 3 different types of skirts which I am a fan of just to kick start your skirts inspiration.

A line skirts

They are basic, comfortable and stylish all in one! I love how there is so much variety when it comes to this type of skirt because you can really create versatile outfits by incorporating this simple essential! For example:

  1. You could go for a midi length skirt if you want to look a bit sophisticated and keep those legs more covered. Then you can choose a basic or fun print e.g. floral depending on what mood you what to convey.
  2. Alternatively, you could vouch for a classic denim skirt! I feel like whatever the mood, whether you are lazy or you want to look a little cute and flirtatious, this piece works in practically any situation. Personally, I feel like it is an essential to have a denim skirt! Why? Well if jeans seem too boring and repetitive, they are a great way to spice up an outfit with little to no effort!

2. Romwe – £11.82


Skater skirts

Immediately they scream comfort from all directions. They aren’t very figure flattering so if you are worried about the skirt showing off your curves – this skirt generally wouldn’t be a problem. Whilst browsing, I noticed that because they are so popular, there is a huge range of skater skirts you can choose from. I was particularly interested in how the colour palette or material of the skater skirt could actually ‘upgrade’ your skirt to a special occasion/night outfit. They are very playful skirts and seem like they will keep you spinning for days!

Bohoo – £6


Pencil/ Mini Skirts

Alas, lets not forget our beloved mini and pencil skirt. I believe both skirts can achieve similar looks and depending on what your personal preference is, you are likely to pick a side… #TEAMPENCIL (What team are you on? comment below)  Unlike, the skater skirts, I believe these skirts are definitely figure hugging! If you want to flaunt your curves and shape, this is the way to go. I have always been a fan of pencil skirts and body cons for this reason. Personally, I believe that wearing block colours and keeping these pieces simple is the key tip to their success!

  1. Pencil: There is nothing wrong with starting off with a basic black pencil skirt. It goes with practically anything and can be styled in numerous ways e.g you could pair it with a jumper or a cropped top. This skirt is as versatile as a skirt can get because you can wear it to a formal event e.g. a day at the office or switch it up for a sophisticated and stunning night outfit! If you don’t want the skirt to be too basic, look for little detailing that sets it apart e.g. the lace and side slits.
  2. Mini: These skirts are already ‘BOLD STATEMENT MAKERS‘. Why? Well they allow you to show of some skin by shedding some light on your legs. I am someone who LOVES their legs, like I can resist saying ‘DAYUMMM‘ when I look in the mirror. Having said that, you don’t want too much going on with the skirt. I recommend playing with the colour palette and looking for skirts which are tailored in interesting ways – don’t go too basic!
1. River Island – £20
2. Missguided – £8

If I could afford to purchase all these skirts, I would buy them in a second but obviously that isn’t the case. I hope you take inspiration from these skirts instead of feel like you need to purchase the exact examples I have provided. I was actually surprised at the variety available at very good prices (under £10) so I am sure you will be able to find a skirt within your budget. I really enjoyed writing this post because I have also been very interested in fashion so it’s always exciting to window shop and decide which pieces I should add into the posts. If you have any suggestion for another fashion item or trend or just anything fashion related please let me know.

Otherwise, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the content!
