I have leather and silk skirts hanging in my closet for winter, but as soon as spring hits, I retire these for lighter, airier fabrics. Out comes the linen piece from Aritzia and the denim midi skirt I found at Topshop seasons ago. Skirts, to me, are a way to diversify your options for bottoms in spring/summer, especially when wearing shorts to the office is frowned upon by HR. Therefore, you can never have enough spring skirts.
Of course, finding the right one is never easy. To speed things up, I took a look at the warm-weather options available right now and picked 15 to start. To narrow down the options even more, they're all under $150. (Now you'll have room in the budget for a new spring bag. You're welcome.)
I'm a sucker for seersucker pieces, especially when the weather hits 70 degrees and above. This coral skirt, which comes with a matching crop top, is on my list of products to buy in an effort to refresh my spring wardrobe for 2019. I love the tangy hue and the casual, pretty bow loosely hanging on the side. This item is a must for any vacation you have planned.
You've officially retired your too-short denim miniskirt for good? As a replacement, try this Topshop piece, which is semi-sexy (peep those side slits) but modest thanks to the midi length. It's the best way to show off your ankle boots or sandals as you transition from fall into spring.
This skirt makes the tie-dye trend look tasteful and trendy for spring. The pattern is splashed against faux black leather, which isn't a combo you see often and is a step up from those DIY tie-dye tees you made at camp. Style with a thin beige sweater and black ankle boots.
A spring wardrobe calls for color, and this Veronica Beard skirt has tons of it. Between the vibrant marigold hue and the delicate floral prints, the skirt represents shedding your black skinny jeans for a happier, lighter pair of bottoms. For an unexpected detail, the label added in a zipper, hidden slightly underneath the ruffles.
Lately, all I want to wear are matching sets. It cuts down my outfit picking time from 15 minutes to five, and I roll into the office looking like the most put-together person, even if I did forget to brush my hair that morning. Before you wonder if this life is too good to be true, pick up this cozy knitted beige skirt, with the matching top, yourself.
You're still working your way up to feeling comfortable in a full-on leopard or zebra skirt. Same. Start small with this animal-like printed midi from J.O.A. The spots are a close imitation to those of a cheetah or cloud leopard, but look gentler and less bold than its actual counterparts.
Madewell is starting to drop its spring products, like this cottom chambray skirt that suits every warm-weather activity from boating to picnicking in the park. The swingy midi number has flattering sewn-in pleats at the waist and crisp white buttons all the way down the front to let you decide how much leg you want to show.
All the clothes from Faithfull the Brand feel like they're made for that quintessential vacation 'gram, including this wrap skirt. It has a bright, poppy background hue and dotted florals, which make you stand out against palm trees and turquoise-colored water backdrops. Get the matching top for a complete set or wear it solo with a graphic tee and sneakers.
On a scale of one to 10, 10 being I need this skirt, I'm a nine. (The only reason I'm not a full 10 is because I already have two leather skirts!) I can attest to the materials durability and surprisingly comfortable fit. This new midi skirt for spring looks soft to the touch and is more forgiving than one of my stiffer pieces, so maybe I should buy this after all. It'll look great with a button-down or plain white tee.
Instead of buying another denim miniskirt with a regular button and cut, pick up this deconstructed one from Pixie Market. The slight shift in asymmetrical details instantly give this item a cool factor.
An everyday skirt should be compatible with all your tops and shoes. Neutral colors, like this khaki green, are good additions to your spring wardrobe because they're a little more interesting than white and beige, but still versatile enough to wear with any color. I suggest this Steele top and these espadrille sandals.
If you're dying to own a piece by Ganni, you're in luck. This tulip printed wrap skirt is on sale for $84 from $169. Get it now before it completely sells out and that way, you'll also have time to figure out the perfect first-day-of-spring outfit before March 20 arrives.
A flashy sequin skirt you'll want to wear for all the rooftop birthday parties and bridal showers you'll attend this spring. The silver sparkles make this piece daytime appropriate, though you can easily transform it with a pair of black heels and a silk black cami for nighttime festivities.
If your style muse is Bella Hadid or Ariana Grande, you'll appreciate a good camouflage skirt. The print says, "I'm tough, but not totally unapproachable" and adds a few edgy points to your overall outfit. Especially, if you're wearing it with combat boots and a cool pair of socks.
This Maje skirt is unlike any of the other options on this list, which is a good thing if you're looking for that special piece. It has pleats, an iridescent sheen, and a lovely soft lavender color that's easy on the eyes. If you want to stand out at the party, slip this on.
