#FashionFriday: Skater Skirts

The ultimate girlie-girl piece is on our trend to-try (or to bring back) this week.

There’s just something about the skater skirts that scream a girl-just-wanna-have-fun vibe, and you can always count on the A-lined number to add some flirty fun to your overall look! Wear it with a paisley-print cropped top to tap into your inner boho queen, or pair it with a structured outer wear for your last-minute meetings (make it length-appropriate, of course). These skirts have come a long way since the ’80s; here are a few ways you can update the trend and bring them back to the streets!

#1 Fun in the sun

Girlie-girl dressing 101: you can never go wrong with a cute off-shoulder cropped top and a floppy hat! Dress it up by finishing off the look with a pair of wedges, or a schoolgirl touch with a pair of white sneakers.

#2 Work it

Make your skater skirt boardroom-appropriate on casual Fridays by picking a more structured material to balance out the flow-y bottom, and keep your separates in monochrome hue for a polished finish.

#3 Casual cool

Rock the skirt to your regular Sunday brunch with this relaxed pairing – opt for a textured skirt or a printed top for an added style punch.

#4 Class act

Give your skirt a grown-up twist by pairing it with a button-down shirt, and tuck the top loosely for a relaxed flair – easy does it!

#5 Layering is key

Run out of ways to style the A-lined piece? Go with layering instead. Wear a sheer mesh piece underneath your top for an added edge.

#6 Trendy mix

Play with textures, materials and prints! Kendall gave her pristine outfit added oomph with a fur-trim top, and a long lightweight coat for a classy take.
