Skirt Season

Skirts are certainly wearable year round, but sometimes winter weather is just too cold to bare those legs. The good news? Spring is just beginning to tease its way out of hiding, which means skirt season is nearly upon us. Your options are endless - pencil, pleated, denim, circle, A-line, maxi, mini, even micro-mini. You can go flirty and feminine, easygoing and comfortable, or understated and conservative. If you don’t already have a love affair with skirts, consider their versatility. Style your skirt with an office-appropriate blouse or a weekend casual tee. Pair it with comfortable ballet flats, or dress it up with heels. It might seem easier to default to pants or jeans, but it really is just as easy to reach for a skirt. We’ve compiled a list to get you started. Freshen up your wardrobe. Welcome the season – skirt season.

  • Faux Two-Piece


    While not technically a skirt, this faux two-piece combines the look of versatile mix-and-match separates with the ease of a dress. You’ll have the illusion of stylishly pairing a polka-dot blouse and a dotty sash with a slim mini, but these “separates” will stay put all through dinner.

    A mini skirt and a Mini Cooper? Fashion designer Paul Smith’s Mini Cooper took a summer road trip through the States. The result? This rather unique mini skirt adorned with a photo of his signature stripe Mini on location in Los Angeles. That’s two minis in one.
