When it comes to skirts, there is a little bit more “styling” attention needed to get the outfit right. Unlike the throw-on-and-go dress or jumpsuit, a skirt is a balancing act. A full skirt calls for a slim top, a printed skirt pairs best with a solid blouse, and so on and so on. So we put a few skirts to the test and paired them with our favorite easy tees and tanks.
This post is actually inspired by YOU the readers! We heard you loud and clear when you asked for bottom alternatives to shorts. Skirts provide a little more wiggle room and leg coverage yet also are easy, breezy in the summer heat.
The Full Skirt
I’ve been seeing so many of these button up skirts and dresses lately so this was the perfect excuse to take one for a spin. I paired this one with a fun graphic tee to keep it casual. The best tops for this skirt would be a slim fitting tee or tank tucked in to show off the waist.
The Hi Lo Skirt
This ruffled, printed, hi-lo skirt has got all the bells and whistles. To let the skirt shine I paired it with a super basic tank. When pairing a printed skirt the easiest way to match a top is to pull a dark color from the skirt. There is a little bit of black in the skirt so the black tank was an easy match.
The Maxi Skirt
This simple black knit skirt (with high slit) will be your new LBD. Dress it up with a black tank for a monochromatic chic look or dress it down with an “of-the-moment” printed tee. This looks pairs perfectly with a summer sangria!
