From Topshop to Gucci, These 11 Summer It Skirts Are Killing Off Jeans

If there's one thing that's going to make your wardrobe more spring-like in a flash, it's a new skirt. Of course, dresses also appease the need to go bare-legged, but there's something so undeniably chic about good skirting.

They're incredibly versatile, too. Be it clever layering techniques or simply changing the mood with an unexpected shoe choice (we recommend chunky trainers), a skirt can unlock hidden outfit potential. As such, we thought it would be fitting to collate all of the most coveted summer skirts 2019 has to offer (at this point in time) in one place.

Below, you'll find 11 beautiful skirts, all of which we've have been given the seal of approval by women we continually look to for style inspiration. From Zara's cult-status dress that's been reimagined in skirt form to the slinky slip that has sold out more times than we can count, keep scrolling to see and shop the It skirts set to define summer 2019.

WAREHOUSE'S DAISY SLIP

Style Notes: The trend for slip skirts continues, and this isn't the only daisy one that's trending right now. However, it is the most grown-up and affordable in its competitive set, and that's why we think it's catching on.

GUCCI'S HOUNDSTOOTH MINISKIRT

Style Notes: We can always count on Gucci to elevate pieces from the fashion archives to cool new heights, and this skirt is no exception. A play on retro twin sets, this heritage houndstooth-check skirt has been given a modern-day overhaul thanks to its mini length. Make like Erika and wear it with chunky flats for a 2019 spin. 

RÉALISATION'S NAOMI SKIRT

Style Notes: In 2018, getting your hands on Réalisation's Naomi skirt was akin to finding the Holy Grail. Now, it's restocked in every print. However, it's the heart- and leopard-print versions that we've currently got our eye on.

NANUSHKA'S ZARINA SKIRT

Style Notes: Understated but utterly gorgeous, plain slip skirts are enjoying as much air time as their printed counterparts. And it's this delightful pink Nanushka one that we're particularly enamoured with, especially now that it's on sale…

NEW LOOK'S CHECKED MIDI SKIRT

Style Notes: Skirts of this calibre usually come with hefty price tags, so this £23 checked number certainly stopped us our tracks. Now that we've put you on to it, prepare to see this skirt everywhere you look. 

GANNI'S TIE-DYE MINISKIRT

Style Notes: Ganni is accustomed to creating pieces with It-buy status, and this tie-dye skirt is no exception. It's already commanded a loyal legion of fans, which likely means it'll sell out any day now. Don't be left disappointed.

FINERY'S ALBERTE SKIRT

Style Notes: Finery's Alberte slip skirt was a surefire hit thanks to its silhouette, which proved less clingy than its counterparts. Now, with a new colour palette for spring, we're expecting this turquoise style to be snapped up fast. 

ASOS'S COW-PRINT MIDI SKIRT

Style Notes: Yes, 2018 was the year animal motifs made a serious comeback, and it seems that the humble cow is set to lead the print pack for summer 2019. Naturally, ASOS's £30 offering is already proving a hit with those in the know. If you're after something more minimalist, there's also a version in black you'll want to pair with a white tee. 

ROUJE'S ANGELE SKIRT

Style Notes: Ruffle skirts were all the rage a couple years ago, but this knee-high rework from Rouje feels so now. Particularly in this daisy floral print. 

TOPSHOP'S VIENNA SKIRT

Style Notes: There are few who haven't nabbed a Topshop slip skirt, but what about the slightly more flirty printed wrap skirt? Less clingy, we'd like to style it like Mira here—with a tee and sneaks.

RIVER ISLAND'S BUTTON-THROUGH SKIRT

Style Notes: If you love red and spots, look no further than River Island's button-through midi skirt. It's great for wearing with sandals, but we can imagine wearing this well into winter with ankle boots too.
