Are you bored of wearing trousers and jeans everyday and want to change your style? If the answer is yes, then you need to start wearing skirts. A well-chosen skirt can hide any flaws in your figure and make you look more feminine.
Fortunately, skirts are in style this summer, and there are many bold mini, midi and maxi styles. There are brave cuts in flying fabrics, loose materials and bright colour combinations, and they incorporate luxury details like shiny beads, feathers and sheer fabrics, all being key ingredients in skirts this season.
Here are some fashionable skirt styles to add to your wardrobe this summer.
Crochet skirt: Heading out on vacation? A crochet skirt can make for a perfect layer over a swimsuit.
Midi-pleated skirt: The most common length of skirts are midi skirts, though they can be of any length. Though this skirt gives a woman a romantic and dreamy look, it can add extra volume to the hips, so it’s preferable for women with slim figures.

Asymmetric skirt: This style is very chic and is one that everyone can easily try.
Floral print skirt
