Skirts are an essential part of every woman’s wardrobe. They’re the perfect choice for a day at work, or on your way to brunch with friends. Skirts can be worn long or short, tight or loose, and in any colour you want! With so many different ways to wear skirts, it can be hard to decide which one is right for you. That’s why we’ve created this blog post: to help all you skirt lovers out there find new outfit ideas that will make people stop and stare.
Let’s get stuck right into some easy tips on how to style your favourite skirt outfits—whether it’s a pencil skirt with heels or a flowing maxi with flats—so that they look fashionable and put together. And now that summer is finally here, there’s no time to lose!
The Maigosa Skirt + a graphic tee = effortless ‘it’ girl
The Maigosa Skirt is a vegan-friendly faux-leather skirt that feels soft on and looks great, too. This skirt is short and sweet and hugs your curves. It also fits into any smart-casual setting, so whether you wear it with a collared shirt or a graphic tee, the Maigosa Skirt is sure to look the part.
Zooming in on the latter suggestion—the Maigosa/graphic tee combo is a classic laid-back look. Wear this outfit down to the shops or for casual hangs with friends. Moreover, this outfit is the most literal interpretation of ‘business-casual’ there is. If you’re attending something with the aforementioned dress code, just be sure to pop on a blazer rather than a jumper or cardigan. This outfit would also slay with combat boots.
The Melanie Set + a blazer = one razor-sharp woman who means business (literally)
The Melanie Set may be a muted charcoal colour, but it makes a bold statement. Its slitted skirt flows to a midi length but hugs all the right places. The top is just as bold. Imagine a boob tube but with sleeves. Ergo, how could the classic blazer not complement this sassy, silhouette-hugging ensemble?

The Melanie Set features a flowing midi skirt. This cut channels the figure-embracing class of a pencil skirt, which women often pair with an oversized blazer. The skirt-and-blazer combination is so on-trend and you really can’t go wrong with it. Dress it up with a pair of heels or down with a pair of sneakers.
The Loan Skirt + the Carter Jumper = a contemporary fashion match made in heaven
Everyone is digging flowy jumpers on elegant skirts right now, so why not join the bandwagon? For this outfit in particular, we have the Loan Skirt: a frilly white satin mini made with the Carter Jumper in mind. This walking juxtaposition of an outfit is frilly on fuzzy, dark on light, and smooth on textured. Put brown and white together, though, and what do you get? Chocolate and vanilla: the building blocks of all things sweet and delicious.

You can generalise the jumper-on-skirted-attire trend to any other outfit, really. Mix and match until you find your favourite flavour. Instead of chocolate on vanilla, maybe you’ll like something bright and tutti-frutti! This jumper trend is also really convenient for those cooler summer nights. Play around with it and see what works for you.
Anything black from top to toe, such as the Mauris Set, Lua Set, Nima Set, or Nirvana Set
Summer may be the season for bright colours, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sport your black outfits as the weather is warming up. This will especially be the case for any Melbournites, where black is more or less the city’s official colour. If you’re going to go all-black, make it count. Wear a black top, a black skirt, black boots, and a black handbag! If you’re throwing on a blazer, make that black, too. It’s the tone of broody, late-night thoughts. Take a breather from colour-matching and throw on a dark ensemble, like the Mauris Set, Lua Set, Nima Set, or Nirvana Set.
