I don't just like dresses; I love dresses. I wear them most days, and throughout my fashion career, I've accumulated quite an impressive collection. But even I, a confessed frock fanatic, like to switch things up from time to time. And when that time comes, I turn my attention to skirts.
I like the styling potential skirts present. Right now, I'm into wearing them with oversized linen shirts, much like my colleague and Who What Wear U.S.'s senior fashion editor, Lauren Eggertsen, below. Still, there's no denying that good skirts can be hard to come by. Think about it: When was the last time a skirt made your heart skip a beat? It's totally unjust, but they don't seem to get the same amount of attention as their dress counterparts. However, there's one brand that has decided to rectify that.
Of course, I made it clear in my headline that we'd be talking about Zara. Ah, Zara. My wardrobe would be a threadbare place without you. While I don't shop all that often, when I do, you can bet that my wish list is full to the brim with Zara items. I don't know what it is, but the brand has an innate ability for identifying what I want to buy before I even know what I want to buy. And true to form, just as I began looking for a new skirt, Zara proceeded to serve up the best I've seen this season.
I'm a midi-length kind of girl, of which Zara has plenty—everything from chic, creamy linen in simple silhouettes to statement wrap-over numbers in electric blue—but I was uncharacteristically taken with many of its mini options, too, particularly, its adorable satin ballerina skirt, which looks so high-end. Whether you're looking for something long or short, bold or subtle, you're guaranteed to find something to suit you in Zara's skirt section. However, to save you endless scrolling, I've shortlisted 24 of my favourites for you below.
