What to Look for
Seek lightweight materials and skin-bearing details. As the temperature rises, your skirt should keep you cool and stylish.
Fabric: Cottons, linens, and other lightweight materials are always welcome, as are mini silhouettes, cutout details, and other aspects that keep even the heaviest of materials more summertime-friendly.
Fit: The world is your oyster when it comes to your summer skirts, with some flowy midis better shopped for in loose fits, while tighter styles might be better aided by a skin-baring shorter silhouette.
Size: Keep breathability in mind, so it’s best not to go too tight when it comes to size.
That said, if you’re looking for a more sleek and less ethereal silhouette, go for shorter lengths or lighter-weight materials.

What skirts are in style for summer 2023?
Skirt styles are plentiful for summer 2023 with youthful styles leading the pack.
Whether it’s a whimsical cutout detail on a more ladylike silhouette, an off-duty denim mini, or ‘90s-era ruffle-trim, having fun with your look is the name of the game when it comes to skirts for this coming summer.
What type of skirt is most flattering?
There is no such thing as “most flattering” when it comes to skirts. You should shop for the style that feels most like you and the length that feels most comfortable mixed into your lifestyle.
The only thing to watch out for? Avoid barely-there miniskirts when shopping for silk wraps and denim cutoffs alike.
While you can certainly show as much skin as you would like, there’s no need to put more than you’re bargaining for on display with wardrobe-malfunction status.
