These six cute skirt outfit ideas will add romance, elegance and fun to your spring and summer.
Do you know what’s so great about skirts? They’re a licence to style. They’re one half of an outfit, and it’s up to you to decide the other. Matchy-matchy is certainly one option. You’re also at liberty to contrast aesthetics or to choose thematically linked pieces that still bring visual variation.
How do you like to style your skirts? We have a few ideas that you could add to your repertoire. Read on for some skirt outfit ideas and skirt-based inspiration!

White, frilly, and flowy
If summer is light, flowy, and breezy, then the Verbana Set is summer objectified. Although summer is the season of light and warmth, it is faded, neutral, and more pastel hues that tend to make up the summer palette. Why is this?
Well, faded or neutral hues replicate the haze from which you tend to view objects in the distance in the midst of a hot summer’s day. Combine this ‘haziness’ with a ruffled lightness that picks up in the wind and you’ve got a subtle summer ensemble. Don’t be afraid to stock up on white for your summer wardrobe—or the Verbana Set.
Neutrality for all the right contexts
If you want versatility, then neutrality is your best friend. The Tropez Skirt is elegant and understated enough to dress up or down. If you’re wanting to turn heads, you could pair it with the Tropez Top (also featured above), or even something contrasting like the Loulia Top in pink.
If you’re wanting to tone it down, you could just as easily pair it with a jumper, trading your high heels in for boots. Whatever look you’re going for, the Tropez Skirt is something of a blank canvas. And ‘blank’ or neutral items make for multiple styling opportunities.
Sky blue and oh-so you
Pastel blue in hue, the Sadie Set is straight from the summer colour palette. It is reminiscent of a clear, blue summer sky. We especially love the frilled detailing on the skirt. The flared sleeves and heart-shaped ring gives this piece some extra zing!
As an experiment, why not mix it up and wear the skirt with the Tropez Top above? Together, these two pieces would channel a slightly cloudy day. We say give it a try!
Glam it up!
Are you after something more glam? We hear you! The Maddalena Set is a bright orange two-piece bound to catch eyes in the same way it catches the light. Together, the criss-cross bustier and matching midi made up the hottest ensemble from 2021.
Carry it over into 2022 and wear it to your next party or to a fancy night out.
Neutrality meets an oversized jumper
A popular fashion trend of the minute is the flowing-jumper-meets-the-elegant-skirt look. Some may say this clashes; we say it’s an elegant juxtaposition. This particular look pairs the simple, ruffled Loan Skirt with the maroon-coloured Carter Jumper, which has a deliberate oversized fit.
This outfit is a unique twist on the current trend. The neutrality of the skirt makes it versatile enough to pair with anything. The jumper is warm and perfect for cooler summer evenings. This outfit is a good compromise for when the weather gets colder. Wear it throughout the cooler months, as well.
Look pretty in pink
Let’s save the girliest for last! Neutrals and faded hues go fine, but we’re also keen to see some bright spots on this list—and that includes florals. If the Shailee Flare Skirt Set is the subtly pink floral ensemble, and the Kani Set is the adult version of ‘on Wednesdays, we wear pink’, then the Halia Set is the middle ground.
Whichever set you choose—or whichever way you mix and match any of the above—you’ll be sure to look pretty in pink. Pink also fits squarely in the summer clothing palette.
