3 Skirt Trends and How to Wear Them

The midi, mini and the maxi! Skirt lengths vary by personal style and this spring anything goes. Each hem length holds its own, when it comes to seasonal trends. If you want new ways to style your favorite type of skirt you’ll want to check out this inspiration from the spring 2014 collections and the tips on how to wear each one.

SkirtTrend-MidiCara

For the workday: Try a midi! Just because the skirt is longer doesn’t mean it has to be stuffy or ultra-conservative. The length allows you to play with color and pattern like this Burberry lace number.

SkirtTrend-MiniPeterSom

On the weekend: Grab a mini. The temps are finally on the rise, so it’s time to let loose and have fun. Pair your skirt with a boxy top and contrasting flats, like Peter Som, and you’re ready to go from sunup to sundown.

SkirtTrend-MaxiProenzaSchouler

In the evening: Work a maxi. A full or pleated skirt, like this Proenza Schouler one, keeps you from looking matronly. The skirt’s full coverage allows you a little more leeway on top—think a cropped or cutout version.

New Obsession: Envelope Skirts

As temperatures are dropping, hemlines are ironically rising, thus popularizing the trendy envelope skirt. Slung low on the waist with a zigzag hem that shows a daring flash of thigh, these skirts are surprisingly flattering. Push the envelope by styling them with your favorite sweaters, sweatshirts, and graphic tees!
