These 9 Summer Skirts Are So Good They Might Tempt You Away From Dresses

You might think that summer is the season of the dress, but we're seeing more and more fashion types forging the all-in-one outfit solution in favor of separates, namely skirts. Skirts, you see, are a bit of a novelty right now. While leggings and joggers may have dominated your outfits last year, chances are you managed to sneak in wearing a dress or two over that period. After all, choose the right style, and it's almost (if not more) comfortable than your comfies. 

It seems, however, that skirts hadn't held the same appeal during lockdown. They require slightly more thought when it comes to styling and don't have the same throw-on ease as dresses. Now though, with restrictions starting to lift just in time for summer, fashion insiders are rediscovering their love of skirts, and we are, too, right along with them. But which summer skirt trends are those in the know investing in? We're glad you asked. 

From the new cutout detail to note to the fresh new spin on a classic print, there seem to be nine specific summer skirt trends following us everywhere on Instagram. Scroll below to see them for yourself, and then shop whichever takes your fancy.
