3 Skirt Styles To Rule The Summers

There are plenty of styles to look out for, after the spring 2017 runway. The trend brings together botanical prints, sculptural shirting and deconstructed denims. Translating the ramp look into your every day wear can be tricky, especially when it comes to skirts. Long, short, or mini; rocker chick leather, subtle suede or classic denims — skirts are always in vogue.

To help you choose styles that still feel appropriate and relevant, we’ve rounded up a few trends that are a major hit in 2017. Read on and take a tour on the different kinds of summer skirts by Cover Story and get a hand on how to style them to suit your personality.


You are out to have fun and what better than an outfit that allows free flow of movements. Fill your closet with a few cotton skirts for nights where you have to let loose and dance. From something as easy as a short skirt to below knee length ones in cotton–all work great. A very popular choice with cotton fabric is maxi skirts. A solid colored long skirt works well with blouse, knit and peplum tops. If you wish to add on some bling, don’t shy away. This style gives you enough room to wear statement or long necklaces and bracelets to compliment your look.


Denims are an unsaid staple in your wardrobe and go well with all body types. Be it a distressed pair of jeans or the oh-so 90s jean jacket, denim in any form can add a lot of mileage to your look. So why leave denim skirts out? Stock up your closet with all kinds of denim — acid washed or motif stitched, slim fit or A-line. Button front denim skirts look trendy when paired with fitted solid coloured tops and jacket. Another classy way to don denims is to wear matching sets and pair it with a chic sling bag and pencil heels.

Play with cuts and style

For a night out, a bit of experiment never hurt anyone. Go after quirky cuts and designs, hemlines, even cool (or hot) colours, you would otherwise stay away from. For instance, a sleek A-line cut, pleated or knitted skirt are versatile yet stylish trends. To add a dash of oomph, try beige or nude footwear or simply put on your dancing shoes. You could also explore bright coloured solid prints or simply go for monochromes and test your comfort zone this season.
