With the arrival of warmer weather, it's time to start thinking about summer fashion. A great option for hot days is a linen midi skirt. This style of skirt can be dressed up or down, making it versatile for many occasions. In this blog post, we will discuss how to style your linen midi skirt for spring and summer. We will provide tips on what colors and accessories to wear with your skirt to create different looks. So read on to learn more!
What to Love About Linen Skirts
There are many reasons to love linen skirts. For one, they are extremely comfortable to wear. Linen is a natural fabric that is breathable and light, making it ideal for warm weather. Those spring and summer days where the morning is cool and the afternoons are hot don't stand a chance against this versatile piece. Additionally, linen skirts tend to be very flattering on all body types and our linen midi just dropped in sizes XXS - 5X! They can be worn high-waisted or lower on the hips, depending on your height and style preferences, and make any outfit more elevated.
We also love the functionality of this piece. It's simple and refined but totally practical for teachers, moms, and those of us who are skittering around the office from meeting to meeting. It's got no ties, strings, buttons, or zippers, so keeping you comfortable is a breeze. The super-soft elastic waist moves with you without constricting any movement to make sure you aren't thinking about your clothing all day and instead are thinking about how best to spend your days in the sun.
Choose Your Shoes
Style with Flats
One of the great things about a linen skirt is that it looks just as good with flats as it does with heels. If you want to keep your look casual and comfortable, pair your skirt with some cute slides or low heel flats. We love how this style looks for running errands or grabbing coffee with friends.
Choose flats that blend well or burst with color. This adds the perfect final touch to a look styled with your skirt. This draws the eye down the full, seamless length of the beautiful skirt and down to a smart, stylish pair of shoes. Flats go well with this skirt to maintain a more casual and everyday look. Heels, on the other hand, elevate this skirt to new dimensions.
Style with Heels
Speaking of a polished look - find yourself elevating your classic linen skirt with a pair of heels. Such a simple touch goes a long way in taking this outfit from everyday classic to office chic. Choose chunky wedges or strappy heels to match with your skirt and adding a bit of height really extends the look of the skirt making you appear taller and with longer legs!
This is a perfect look to pair with a romantic blouse on date night - a modest, yet sultry look that's effortless, eye-catching, and still so comfortable. Or, style it with heels at the office or work for a professional look added to a fun and inviting skirt. Heels or flats, sneakers or sandals, either way, prepare yourself for compliments!
Style with Sneakers
We are loving the retro, skater-esque look in pairing dresses, skirts, and more with chunky tennis shoes. The sneaker game is hot and adding a pair of your favorite sneakers or chucks to this skirt can make a naturally feminine piece seem more retro and bold. It's a perfect contradiction and is a comfortable and effortless way to style a skirt while you walk around town, stroll the market, or just hit the shopping mall on a warm day.
Adding a classic white sneaker with any of our skirt colors and a graphic or vintage tee is a great way to show your personal style. Maybe the romantic look isn't for you, and that's okay! We're all about finding new ways to style classic pieces that compliment your personality and your style. Wearing sneakers with this linen midi skirt takes a bold person and we'd love to see you show your style!
Style with Sandals
A free pass with any skirt is styling it with a simple or elegant sandal. This is a more practical route than heels for a number of reasons and can make the skirt seem less dressy and more casual. Slip on your favorite Birkenstocks or strap on your favorite sandals for a coastal, relaxed look from head to toe.
This is ideal for walks around the city, ice cream runs, grocery store trips, or beach walks. It keeps you cool, comfortable, and super stylish. Pairing your skirt with sandals is a great way to create a casual look that's still presentable and makes you feel dressed up. The skirt is romantic and comfortable and the sandals can dress it up or down based on your choice. Add in a pair of shades, a wide-brim hat, and a beachy tote and you have a full summer look.
Choose Your Top
Style with a Summer Sweater
Style your linen midi skirt with a lightweight summer sweater. Perfect for layering, and keeping warm with the breeze but still comfortable enough to wear along with your skirt. Our waffle knit v-neck sweater would be the perfect partner for your linen skirt. It's breathable, soft-to-the-touch cotton, and can tuck easily into the soft waistband for styling ease.
Choosing a soft, knit sweater with such a simple skirt is also a great way to show some texture and dimension. Though the linen fabric has a unique texture of its own, it can appear simple and plain when paired with similar fabrics. Change it up and choose a knit that's textured like our waffle knit sweater, or chunky knit cardigan. Heads will turn and you'll look great and feel even better.
Style with a Button-Up
Another great way to style this linen skirt is with a classic button-up. There are so many styles of button-ups to choose from finding one that matches your style should be easy. This simple skirt is perfect to pair stripes or printed tops so you can choose a button-up that adds color or dimension to an otherwise simple outfit.
Not to mention we love a good monotone look. We have some short sleeve button-ups that match perfectly with your linen dress to offer a full, one-color look that can make this skirt and top combo appear as a refined and elevated dress! Otherwise, mixing and matching colors is easy too. Choose a bold color in your skirt and pair it easily with something lighter or complimentary on top. This polished look is perfect for work, play, and everything in between.
Style with a Classic Tee
Simple, touchable, and incredibly classic is styling your linen skirt with a t-shirt. Go to school, lectures, grocery shopping, or to the park with the kids in style. Look and feel your best - no tight tops, restrictive waistlines, or tops that rub in the heat. A simple, refined boxy t-shirt is spring and summer's best friend and is an essential partner to our linen midi skirt look.
The whole outfit screams effortless and is made for comfort to keep you moving through every part of your day with ease and relaxation.
