Slinky Skirts Are Huge & This Is How To Do It

almost 3 years ago

It's one of the hottest trends of the summer and I love it because it's sexy, versatile and comfy! Slinky midi and maxi skirts are the way to go this season and here's how I'm styling them...

Straight Up Trend

This would be a simple, satin slip skirt. I love this style skirt, it's such a classic and so easy to dress up or wear casually. Whether you go classic black, a bold red or this neutral palette from Vince, it always looks good. I pair mine with either a satin cami or lace. This is a really sultry evening look and kind of works that underwear-outerwear vibe. Love these combos.

With both these looks, I'd keep accessories very evening with sexy strappy heels, an evening clutch and some layered chains. Hot.

Polka-licious

Loves me a polka dot. And polka works so well for the slinky skirt trend. I found this beaut Topshop skirt and I love that it's not so simple and has a little ruffle, asymmetry going on. I instantly imagined doing polka on polka with this skirt and just love how it vibes with this black polka top. This look has a little Spanish-ness happening. Never be afraid to do print on print!

Casual Vibes

I LOVE this skirt from The Kooples. It's feminine, but has a little edge to it, which I think works really well with the dressed down look. I'd pair with this cool tee from T By Alexander Wang and simple puma running shoes. This is a street-style inspired weekend OOTD for sure.

Mix It Up

I'm really feeling this satin maxi from BCBG Max Azria. At first glance, you might think evening, stilettos etc. However, I'd love to style this with daytime accents, which I think work really well with the colour and give the skirt a whole new feel.

I'd do ankle boots and this sexy wrap shirt tucked in and then add this edge AF day bag, again from Wang.

This looks serious put together.

This is so up my street and having already bought a black and vintage pink satin skirt this year, I'm heading straight towards one of these prints for my next purchase!
