The Only Skirt You Need This Summer

Without fail, by the end of summer, we come to realize that our wardrobes largely consist of a number of statement skirts and simple tops. We mix them, we match them, we pair them with heels at night and sneakers on the weekend, and we wear them to work with a blazer and brunch with a leather jacket. No matter how we come to style the go-to pairing, one thing’s for certain: It’s all about the skirt. As such, we’re constantly on the hunt for that understated and elegant yet totally head-turning skirt trend that will allow us to stand out in a crowd while requiring little fuss (because let’s be honest: Who has any time for that?). And this summer, it’s all about asymmetrical miniskirts.

Whether in a bright patchwork pattern or a not-so-basic black, the silhouette on this miniskirt is eye-catching all on its own. Some have a consistent shape all around that simply isn’t a straight cut (think ruffles, high-low hems, or a layered appeal), while others are more artistic in their vibe, boasting one side that hits at mid-thigh while the other cascades down past your calf. From Monse, Calvin Klein, Self-Portrait, and more, here are our favorite asymmetrical miniskirts that we’re about to live in all summer long.

With the chic skirts above, all you need is a crisp white T-shirt and you’ll be good to go!
