Here are the 7 trendy skirts to wear this summer…

Whatever your favorite style of skirts, this summer wear them printed! Stripes, flowers, polka dots, or even the Ankara print which trumps all prints if you are going for a tribal chic look. Choose your favorite print and combine it in a chic way. Here, Lisa Folawiyo plays with the details of her look as she combined her Ankara mini skirt with a matching jacket that features cut-out details in its sleeve.

High waisted, pleated or otherwise, the midi skirt never stops turning heads. What makes them even special is how they sit stylishly between mini and maxi as though luring you in, but not giving too much away. Flared, light or warm, the midi skirt exudes timeless elegance and glamour. You can still show off your legs with the introduction of a slit.

The asymmetrical skirt is a piece to wear this season as it gives your look a romantic flair. The irregular and strategic cuts make it unique compared to other types of skirts. Also, because they are asymmetrical, they give a flattering slimming effect. For a romantic evening, pair them with a colorful top and a pair of strappy heels.
