Now, the sheer amount of choice you’re faced with once you start your hunt for your perfect style can be pretty overwhelming. Skip the stress and consult this list of the statement skirts and a variety of women’s designer shorts that you absolutely need in your closet…
Silk Slip Skirt
The silk slip skirt has gone through a major style renaissance over recent seasons. This piece is the pinnacle of sophisticated style, and once you get comfortable with styling yours, you’re going to wonder how you went this long without one! Layer with an oversized tee for a cute and casual look, throw on a neutral-toned button-up for office hours or match with a silk cami for an effortlessly elegant evening look that’s spot-on for date night.
A leather skirt is a style favourite, no matter what length or fit you opt for! The A-line leather mini looks fantastically 60s especially when paired with heeled white boots and a close-fitting turtleneck. Longer length more your thing? A deep, chocolatey brown leather midi skirt pairs incredibly with a crew neck white tee or your favourite bell-sleeved boho blouse.
Boho Maxi Skirt
A loose fit, flowing maxi skirt is going to be your go-to all year round. Choose a light and bright white airy cotton style to carry you through unbearably hot days. Match with a cropped off the shoulder boho top, contrast with a sharp black tee or wear with a crochet cami for a touch of French chic. Pair with chunky sneakers to contemporise the piece or lean into the romantic roots and pick a pair of woven leather sandals to match perfectly.
Sequins are definitely a strong statement, but if you want to stun and stand out from the crowd at your next cocktail party, special event or dinner party, then they’re absolutely the way to go. Choose a shimmering, champagne toned slip skirt to match with a neutral cami or slim-fit tee. Add some cream coloured espadrilles, a pearl-studded knitted bag and a deep wine lipstick to turn heads on your next night out.
The Linen Dress Short
A crisp cut pair of linen dress shorts is amazing for evening and casual wear during the warmer months of the year! Tuck in a breezy white button-up, add a pair of chunky tan leather sandals, grab a basket bag and tie a silky scarf into your hair for a beautifully stylish off-duty look.
A-line Boho Shorts
A-line, boho style shorts are great for stylish summer nights. Matching with a co-ord boho top or contrast with a masculine denim or leather look button-up shirt. Add a tough edge with ankle boots or chunky black sandals, a micro-mini leather backpack and plenty of smudgey eyeliner.
Fashion-Forward Fringed Shorts
A little fringing goes an awfully long way in the styling world! A neutral pair of suede or leather fringed shorts might not be the most worn piece in your collection, but boy do they look incredible when you do wear them. Tuck in a dramatically oversized graphic tee, slip into a pair of creamy cowboy boots, sling a beaded macramé bag over your shoulders and finish with a floppy woven sun hat.
