As someone who, prior to lockdown, only owned a couple of pairs of jeans and gym leggings, it’s hard to believe that the aforementioned items, along with the joggers I purchased last April, have become the most-worn items in my wardrobe. I used to live in dresses and skirts, and without meaning to sound overdramatic, I feel like I’ve lost a bit of my identity having not worn them for so long.
However, with temperatures slowly starting to climb and the days becoming brighter and longer with each passing week, I’m seeing this as my opportunity to break myself out of my style rut and slip into something fresh. So why not make for a spring/summer 2021 hero skirt?
Frocks might have reigned supreme in recent years, but it seems as if skirts are going to make something of a comeback this year. Personally, I find skirts to be the perfect transitional item to usher in the start of spring—I’ll wear them now with chunky boots and knitwear. Then, come summer, I’ll swap them out for tan sandals and a vest top.
Below, I’m sharing the six standout skirt trends of 2021 that I’m seeing all over my feed and filling up my favourite new-in sections. Let me take you through the key fabrics, lengths, silhouettes, and details—all that’s left for you to do is choose your favourite.
