Selection: Top 10 of Must-Have Summer Skirts
By Burda Style August 31, 2022 No comments

Skirts are a go-to item for anyone’s summer wardrobe. Brighter and bolder than winter skirts, they radiate color and joy. But, unlike dresses which can be worn all on their own, skirts need a top to become a full outfit. Some models are simple and can be paired with all kinds of looks. Others are more unique and stand out thanks to their shape and shade. (In this case, it is best to wear these pieces with more neutral tops!) But no matter what, with a good basic skirt pattern, you can create a ton of silhouettes and styles. We are delighted to share with you our favorite skirts of the summer. Enjoy!
