The full skirt is definitely having a fashion moment and there are plenty of ways to wear a full skirt to suit your style. While it’s typically a quite ladylike garment, with a bit of styling you can make it work to suit all sorts of occasions. Midi length skirts seem to be the most popular choice this season but shorter skater skirts are also a stylish option. If you’re in need of some outfit inspiration then take a look at these street style ways to wear a full skirt.
1 Femme Fatale
When looking at ways to wear a full skirt, try experimenting with unexpected styles. Amelia was snapped by Suzanne Middlemass wearing a full skirt made from PVC material. She teams the skirt with a furry sweater, boxy coat, compact clutch, and ballet flats. The PVC skirt is an edgy take on a usually ladylike style. The high-shine effect of the skirt also adds some interesting texture to the all black outfit.
2 Checked out
This outfit was photographed by Stacey Young in Seoul. Check skirts and dresses are popular this season and look great teamed with basics. Here they look pretty preppy teamed with a black blouse, bow scarf, and lace up ankle boots. Midi length skirts can be tricky to pull off, so stick to skirts that hit at or above the knee if you’re unsure of how to work the full skirt this season.
3 Retro Inspired
The full skirt silhouette is very retro, so play this up when styling your skirts this season. This outfit was photographed by Victoria Adamson for Refinery 29. The chevron striped skirt is a statement maker and looks chic teamed with a matching coloured sweater, cat eye sunglasses, and structured handbag. Try recreating this outfit with a patterned skirt for a similarly stylish look.
4 Bold and Bright
This outfit is definitely not for the faint hearted! Eunsun was snapped by Mark Iantosca wearing this fluorescent number. She mixes a fluorescent full skirt with a bright pink clutch and anchors it all with a futuristic silver t-shirt. Strappy heels and colourful jewellery complete this eye catching outfit.
5 Cosy Casual
Work a casual look by teaming a full skirt with a chunky knit sweater. Kari was photographed by Julien Babigeon wearing a lovely teal skirt with a cream cable knit sweater and ballet flats. She also carries a large canvas tote which is perfect for holding all the daily essentials. You could easily wear a similar outfit to school or for running weekend errands.
6 Short and Sweet
Mariann from Cashmere In Style sticks to a shorter hemline when wearing her full skirt. It’s a flirty look that she styles with a grey printed sweater, collared shirt, and pointed pumps. She accessorises with a bright red handbag, jewel necklace, and tortoiseshell sunglasses for a playful, preppy look.
7 Luxe Leather
Leather and leather-look skirts seem to be becoming a wardrobe staple. Instead of a short mini skirt try a full, pleated style this season. Jane was spotted on Stockholm Streetstyle wearing her pleated leather skirt with a plain grey top, wayfarer sunglasses, and a chain link handbag. Some silver bow heels added a touch of glamour to this daytime look.
8 Pretty in Pink
Pink is one of the hottest colours for fall and winter. Try working this season’s must have colour trend by wearing a pretty pink skirt, like this outfit photographed by Anthea Sims on the streets of New York. It’s quite a feminine look and you can play up the ladylike aspect by teaming a pink skirt with a fitted sweater and court shoes.
9 Sporty Street
Dress down a full skirt by teaming it with sporty separates and accessories. Bea was spotted on Stockholm Streetstyle wearing her full skirt with a cropped long-sleeved top, sneakers, and a slouchy beanie. This sporty street style look shows that there’s more to the full skirt than polished, ladylike outfits.
When it comes to styling a full skirt this season, the options seem to be endless. Glam one up with ladylike heels and plenty of jewellery or dress it down for a more casual approach. How would you style a full skirt this season?
