We don’t know about you, but this year we’re welcoming any opportunity to break out of our sweatpants and slip into something refreshingly different – especially as we move into a warmer season ahead. Luckily, just like every year, this year our A-listers brought a lot of cool (and comfortable) trends that we can’t wait to try – including a handful of exciting skirt trends. It feels like a lifetime since we’ve actually worn a proper skirt so all the striking styles that the divas graced have captured our attention more than ever.

Below, we’re sharing the seven standout skirt styles that reigned the fashion scene and are set to be all over Instagram come summer. Read on to see what the new season has to offer:

Denim skirt

While pleated and pencil skirts will still be in the limelight, the unexpected denim skirt is back and cooler than ever. The best part about this trend is that they’re so versatile and easy-to-wear – just like your favourite pair of jeans.

Satin skirt

One of the most versatile skirts you'll own, the satin skirt, is easy and elegant and oh so sophistiqué. Pairing this lovely skirt with a plain white blouse and pump heels makes the look really voguish.

Sheer skirt

Skin is in for summer 2021 – as evidenced by the number of skin-baring silhouettes and styles on the runways. Sheer skirts are feminine, dreamy, and romantic. Paired with a turtle neck and strappy sandals, this is a statement piece.

Pencil skirt

Taking the emphasis to the natural, beautiful curves of females everywhere, the pencil skirt has since been determined as the most flattering skirt on the market. Whether you opt for statement-making florals or shimmering sequins, sultry leather or luxurious lace, there is a vast range of exciting ways to bring this trend into the season.

Tulle skirt

When it comes to special occasions, a tulle maxi skirt can make an excellent option. A fantastic alternative to a traditional dress, a tulle maxi skirt offers the same polished appearance but with a modern twist. The soft shade plays the femininity of this skirt. The denim shirt gives it a trendy spin.

Animal printed skirt

If you don't own an animal-print skirt yet, then it's time to get on board. The print is practically a neutral at this point and looks seriously chic with even the simplest tee. Opt for tiger prints for an of-the-moment look. The sultry print skirt is everywhere these days and has become a seemingly tailor-made wardrobe staple this season.

Pleated skirt

A pleated midi skirt will never go out of style and is the perfect piece to wear year-round – just add boots come fall. We're particularly smitten with this two-tone number. Thanks to its eye-catching design, this pleated maxi skirt is perfect for turning heads. As such, it makes a fantastic choice for formal occasions.
