Since we were little girls to being all grown up, one thing has stayed the same— our love for skirts! This elegant staple has always had a special place in our hearts and our wardrobes. While skirts may not be as popular as pants for casual day wear, we certainly wish we could rock this comfy piece of clothing whenever possible. They’re breezy, inclusive and everything that a pair of skinny jeans can never be. Since it’s peak summertime and the scorching sun shows no mercy, we thought it’s the best time for our readers to rock this evergreen piece. To discover new and trendy ways to wear this classic, we turned to Instagram and scrolled through looks sported by some of our favourite ‘it’ girls. Here is the best skirt inspo we could find – let’s say a collective ‘thank you’ to these fashionistas!

2. Alishay Adnan
This look has our heart! Alishay opted for a monochrome skirt for a summer wedding and worked it like it’s NBD. A broad-striped skirt paired with an embellished crop top is all you need to channel you inner Disney princess just like this fashionista.

Follow this basic rule when wearing skirts: make it as playful as you can. Be it with clashing colours, prints or accessories, adding a fun element to skirts always makes them ten times alluring. Our favourite style star Mehak quirks up her red polka-dot skirt by teaming it with a cute lilac crop-top. Needless to say, she is already winning summer fashion with this uber-chic look.
