7 Skirt Outfits for 7 days of Summer


A few years ago, if you had told me that I would be styling and loving skirts as much as I do now, I would probably tell you that you're either dreaming or that you're out of your mind... Back then, I used to own one skirt and the only reason why is because it was a wrap skirt with pockets.

The last few years, not only have I moved across the globe, but my style, taste, and wardrobe have drastically changed.  Don't get me wrong, I'm still the girl who's most comfortable in jeans, and a t-shirt. I enjoy exploring my girly wardrobe every now and then, as I like to mix and match different styles in different outfits.

I have to say however, incorporating skirts in my wardrobe has been tough... I'm very picky about clothes and lately I've developed a mindset that I wouldn't purchase any clothing unless I was to showcase them on the blog or on Instagram.  So far, that mentality has been amazing as it has helped me save money $$$. 

The skirts that I've chosen to style for this blog post are hand picked after careful consideration for numerous reasons.  I wear skirts mostly in the summer but I also transition them into either Spring, Fall or even Winter with a pair of tights underneath (Snake Skin Trend Outfit, 1 Item 5 ways: Black Turtle-neck, Fall's Back with Plaid, Spring Blues, Leather on Leather). I wanted to showcase for this blog post 7 different ways of styling my favourite skirts for those hot Summer days.


I fell instantly in love with this skirt the minute I set my eyes on it in the store. It reminded me of the only skirt I used to own years ago since it has pockets as well.  I love the convenience of being able to stash my phone away in the pockets, I love the texture of the skirt and love how much volume/puffy look it has.  I really wanted to get the white version of this skirt but it was a bit too see through for my taste. I picked out the dark blue colour instead and paired it with my floral over the shoulder top from GAP, and my espadrilles denim sandals for a more elegant look.  


Outfit 2 - Midi Length Skirt from H&M (similar)

The first skirt is probably one of my favourites.  This skirt from H&M has a very subtle white on black dotted pattern and it's very elegant and comfortable.  It's perfect for a casual or work day, which is exactly what I needed to add to my wardrobe. 
I've styled the same skirt 2 different ways and I've paired it both times with sneakers for a more casual look. 


Outfit 3 - Mini Skater Skirt from Ardene (similar from H&M)

Mini Skirts have become quite a staple piece in my wardrobe.  I especially love them as I can style them even in Spring/Fall/Winter by layering them with a thick pair of tights and still look cute. This one is a staple piece and perfect to pair with pretty much anything since it's black. This time, I paired it with one of my absolute must have tshirt from Uniqlo, and my white Nike sneakers. To accessorize the whole outfit, I wore my black choker lace necklace, and Daniel Wellington watch. 


Outfit 4 - Maxi Floral Skirt from Urban Planet

With a front slit, this skirt is a little too exposed for my taste, so I usually just tie it up with a safety pin and it does the job.   I love the fit of this skirt and how it accentuates the features of my body (yes, I mean 🍑).  It's perfect for hot summer days; a somewhat formal look yet comfortable and lots of room to breathe.  I paired it with the white Uniqlo shirt, and my gorgeous block heels boots from Nasty Gal.  I bought the mini white backpack from ALDO when they were having their sale and I've been loving it and use it on a daily basis.  I love the minimal look of it with a lace detailing in the front pocket and the size is just perfect to fit my camera and anything else I would need. 


Outfit 5 - Mini Denim Skirt from Forever 21 (similar)

This skirt was a steal. I bought it 2 years ago from the clearance section for $8.  It fits like a glove and is extremely flattering and versatile. I can dress it up or down with any colour blouse/shirt/crop top and it would still look absolutely gorgeous. The possibilities are endless. 
Today, I've styled it 2 different ways to show you how versatile it can be.




Outfit 6 - Midi Asymmetric Skirt from Dynamite

This was the first skirt I bought after moving to Canada, and it's probably one of my top piece of clothing.  I love how elegant and graceful it is. The asymmetry gives it a unique look and the floral pattern is top notch. I usually pair it with a long sleeves blue top during spring time (posted it last year on Spring Outfits), but for summer, I pair it with a blue tank top. I wore some comfortable low block heel sandals with it and that's it.


Outfit 7 - Mini Denim Skirt with patches from ASOS

Let me just say that this skirt is not mine. It's my best friend, Nailah's. But I fell in love with it once she sent me a photo of it. I was hesitant about the fit at first sight but once I put it on, the fit was incredible. The skirt accentuates the shape of my body so well. I think the patches stitched on gives it such a bad-ass look. I paired it with this amazing Element Cropped Graphic t shirt I found from WINNERS and I finally got to wear my Harley Davidson sneakers. 
I love these sneakers so much and absolutely love the combination of black and orange but I didn't quite have an outfit that fits with the colours. But this worked out perfectly. For accessories, I chose to go with the Primark mini backpack I was gifted by my parents from their trip to the US and some simple jewelry like my Daniel Wellington bracelet, some rings, and my black choker necklace.

  1. I'm obsessed with skirts now too, and you couldn't have told the younger me that this would be the case either. Midi's are my fave, and I love how you paired with two casual looks. I've never heard of some of the clothing stores that you mentioned, so I look forward to trying them out!
