I recently chatted about the fall dress trends I’m particularly into this season, including knit silhouettes and reimagined shirtdresses. Next, I thought we could take a few moments to discuss another staple. Yep, I’m talking about fall skirts. While those denim miniskirts and flowy maxis potentially carried you through summer, the variety trending this season are just as versatile and could make a serious impact in your autumn offering.
To highlight the skirt trends that feel fresh and timeless, I scrolled through the IG feeds of some of my favorite fashion people to note the silhouettes I think you’ll adore given their modern yet classic nature. If you need a new skirt or want a bit of inspiration for the season, keep scrolling to check out the designs in question, along with styling notes and shopping recommendations as well.
If there's one skirt trend that will reign supreme this season, it's a ribbed silhouette—particularly in a knit fabric.
Slip skirts are more or a less a classic at this point for any season. Come fall, try that timeless silhouette with leather separates and chunky knits.
A leather skirt is a go-to for those directional looks. Add texture to your favorite fall 'fit by teaming a faux-leather pick with an oversized sweater.
Column dresses and skirts that are long in shape will trend hard this season to create especially forward silhouettes.
The pleated miniskirt will continue to shine bright for fall to bring playful sophistication to an outfit.
