30 Outfit Ideas To Dazzle In A Skirt

By Somdutta Mazumder

Updated - July 23, 2020 12 min read

As far as idioms are concerned, to be the one wearing the pants is a matter of pride. But in literal as well as fashion terms, pants can only take you that far. Especially when the weather forecast is humidity with a chance of heatstroke, twirling in a breezy skirt is as pleasant as it gets. I mean, sure, pants can be comfy and a tad safer in terms of wardrobe malfunctions. But in the matter of effortlessly feeling and looking dolled up, no pair of bottoms can defeat a beautiful skirt. 

 

A skirt is also a fashion item, that almost every woman has at least one of. But tragically, very few are armed with ideas to put together a stunning skirt look. And hence, it's on very few occasions, that a skirt sees the light of day. But contrary to popular assumption, a skirt can be as versatile a fashion item as you want it to be, become the centrepiece of a soft, romantic outfit on one day, and of an edgy look on another. If the word "how" is flashing like a neon sign in your head, put your mind at ease. Because we did what we do best, round up plenty of ideas for you to choose from. And on that note, here's bringing to you 30 trendy skirt outfit ideas

 

Denim Skirt Outfit Ideas

 

1. Basic Round Neck + Sneakers

Totally classic and casual-chic, this is the perfect daytime outfit for when you're running errands or meeting the girls for a cup of coffee. Look for a t-shirt with a baggier fit and a slogan slapped in the front, along with a distressed, well-fitted denim skirt. A pair of canvas sneakers, and a sporty watch later, you're ready to rock this look. 

 

2. Cami + Knitted Shrug

Pretty, feminine and super cosy especially during chillier monsoon days, we love this outfit for its elegance and simplicity in equal measure. A camisole with lace trimmings will be the perfect top to match your denim skirt, and to seal this look, throw on a comfortable knitted shrug. Accessorise with minimalistic jewellery, such as a dainty layered gold necklace. 

 

3. Turtle Neck + Oversized Blazer

Thought you can never wear your denim skirt to work? Think again! This classy three-piece ensemble takes a casual denim skirt and turns it into an office-appropriate fashion item. A well-fitted turtleneck in a dark solid colour tucked into your denim jacket, and an oversized suede blazer to top it off with, are the two things you need. You can mix up the fabric of the blazer, as well as the colours in your outfit. Keep the accessories minimal, or don a pair of black stockings to amp up the formal factor. 

 

4. Off Shoulder Top With Dramatic Sleeves

We've found THE perfect first date outfit for you, you're welcome! The best part about a denim skirt has got to be its versatility in terms of styling, and in this look, it takes on a romantic, dreamy avatar. Because the lower part of your outfit is minimal and fitted, opt for an exciting top with dramatic sleeves, and a classy fabric like satin. In this outfit, the soft red colour of the top coupled with the balloon sleeves and off-shoulder neckline makes for the perfect tool to dress up a simple, frayed hem denim skirt. 

 

5. Light Wash Denim Shirt

Denim on denim is ever trending, and this look has got to be one of our absolute faves. A tailored denim shirt, preferably in a lighter wash than your bottom piece, tucked into a lightly distressed denim skirt creates an effortlessly fashionable outfit idea. Accessorise with a statement clutch or bag, and opt for simple ballet flats or a classic pair of pumps. 

 

Midi Skirt Outfit Ideas 

 

1. Black Blazer & Cami + Pleated Metallic Midi Skirt

We LOVE this chic look, and we'd consider a metallic pleated midi as a must-have for every fashion-forward woman in 2020. In this look, a beautiful rust metallic pleated midi skirt is paired with a simple black silk camisole featuring a sweetheart neckline. Topped off with a black blazer thrown on like a cape, this is the midi skirt outfit you need to walk into a boardroom wearing. 

 

2. Front Knotted Graphic Tee + Printed Midi

This look is all about taking a charming printed midi skirt and turning it into a sporty, casual and very millennial-esque outfit. Look for a light splatter of print on your midi, along with a slightly asymmetrical hemline. Wear the skirt above your waist, and tie your favourite graphic t-shirt in a knot above the waistband of your skirt. A pair of trending all-white sneakers, and you're ready to turn heads without even trying! 

 

3. Sleeveless Turtleneck + Solid Midi Skirt

What's not to love about this midi skirt look? First off, the colour combination of nude with white is as classy as it gets. The fitted sleeveless silhouette of the top coupled with the delicate low turtle-neck makes it an utterly elegant piece to pair a basic solid midi skirt with. We are also digging the knitted fabric of the top, and the edgy pair of ankle boots. Alternatively, you can opt for a pair of strappy stilettos or leather sandals to create a tasteful summer formal look. 

 

4. Solid Off-Shoulder Body Suit + Printed Midi

Another perfect date outfit, we see the quintessential midi skirt in a floaty, summer-ready guise in this look. A stunning body-suit is another fashion staple we should invest in, especially for looks like this with a whispy bottom half. The off-shoulder neckline amps up the charm quotient, and the simple strappy block heels seal the deal perfectly. 

 

5. Cropped Sweater + Solid Midi Skirt

For the initial days of fall and the slight chill in the air, this is an alluring midi skirt look that will keep you cosy and comfortable. We are digging the subtle colour blocking going on in this look, and if you've got a white or beige cropped sweater lying around, all you need is a pretty midi skirt in a solid warm colour of your choice. Footwear with low block heels will make for the perfect finishing touch.

The best part about maxi skirts has got to be that you can both dress 'em up or down. This look fits into the former category, and makes for the perfect outfit to wear to a daytime event. An intricate lace crop top worn on top of a simple slip and paired with a flowy pleated maxi skirt is an effortlessly elegant combo. Accessorise with a statement necklace, like this chunky pearl piece.

There is indeed beauty in simplicity, and this maxi skirt look is all the evidence you need.

Keep the accessories sparse, or throw in a classic pair of hoops, and you're all set.

We are convinced that a denim shirt can pretty much look good with anything, and in this outfit we see it amping up the trend quotient of a striped, figure-hugging maxi skirt. Tie up your skirt in the front, and stack on some gold link bracelets, and you're hot to trot!

A fresh and breezy maxi skirt outfit for summer, this one is both trendy and sophisticated. It's also an ideal maxi skirt look for work, one that helps you stay cool and stylish. Pair a cotton sleeveless button-down, with a floral printed maxi skirt. Next up is a chunky woven belt that literally, and figuratively seals the look together. Delightfully dapper!

A skater skirt is one fashion item every hipster needs in her closet, and this loo is the perfect example of why. We love the elegance of a full-sleeved dotted button, thrown in together with an edgier leather skater skirt. Slip into a  pair of sheer black stockings, and you will be absolutely golden.

So simple, yet so cute! This skater skirt in dark navy splattered with white polka dots is a thing of beauty, and all it needs is a basic white round-neck t-shirt to put together an adorable, casual-chic outfit.

Another skater skirt look with a lovely casual vibe, the short length of the bottom piece would fit quite well with a modest fitted full-sleeves t-shirt. Look for one with a playful print, or bold horizontal stripes like in this one, and throw on a pair of platform sliders. You're now ready to turn heads at the supermarket!

What can we say, we just really want you to extract all that you can from your skirts and wearing them to work is a crucial part of our agenda. We love this ruffle mini skirt and slogan t-shirt combination, but it's the oversized textured blazer that really struck our fashion-fanatic hearts.
