Sarong style summer skirts

Beach and pool parties are always on the agenda for a fun-filled summer. Instead of paring your bikinis and bralettes with the regular sarong, go for wrap skirts that can double as a sarong. The layered design makes them suitable to wear from home with crop tops.

Summer skirts with slits

Slits are featured in skirts to ease moving around while wearing them. It is now used as a design aesthetic for both long and short skirts. Since skirts come with front slits, high slits, and double slits, this only makes them more appealing. Summer is the best time to rock high slit numbers, so you can show off some legs and slay.

Loose crochet skirts

Crochet is a knitting pattern, which means skirts made from them will be knitted and thick. This is why you should opt for open and loose-knit skirts. Such designs will look like a net rather than a knitted skirt and can be a cozy companion for summer days. Layer them with your swimsuits or bikini sets, clogs on your feet, and you will be ready for every summer.

Asymmetrical skirt

Asymmetrical skirts are the perfect way to look laid-back and polished. Throw them on for formal settings because they are a bit dressy for lounging. The hemline also adds the extra details you need to draw attention to, so pair with a simple top of matching colors. Nice heels or dress shoes with a clutch in hand and a summer event ensemble is sealed.
