Skirt Trends & How to Style Your Fave Skirt

If you’ve taken a glance at the fashion runways (or just your Instagram feed) recently, you’ve probably noticed that skirts have been on the rise. That trusty black mini skirt in your closet may have taken a backseat during the WFH era, but as the warm-weather months approach, we say “sun’s out, legs out.” 


Not sure where to start? The good news is that our current favorite skirt trends are as varied as they are versatile, so incorporating them into your wardrobe is easier than you think. Scroll to see the spring and summer skirt trends we’re loving, along with styling tips to take your outfits to the next level.

Express Womens Midi Skirt

What shoes do I wear with a midi skirt?


A midi skirt is an essential in any closet due to the fact that it’s incredibly simple to style, as well as season-spanning. Pair with braided sandals and a cropped tank, and you’ve got a low-key everyday look. But swap those sandals for heeled mules and add an off-the-shoulder top, and it’s giving European chic.

How can I dress down a mini skirt?


You can never go wrong with a form-fitting mini skirt for date night or GNO, but it also has a place in your daytime ensembles. For a more casual approach, style with a boyfriend blazer or oversized jacket and sneakers. Depending on the weather, you can also toughen up the look with a tucked-in sweater and chunky boots.

Express Womens Mini Skirts

Ready to welcome skirts into your outfit rotation? Here are five key styles you need.

Womens Denim Skirts

1. Denim Maxi Skirt

Trust us, this is one you’ll be wearing on repeat, whether it’s with a simple ribbed tank and sandals, a boxy striped tee and loafers or a Body Contour bodysuit and knee-high boots. Double the denim—and the style points—with a tucked-in chambray shirt or matching jean jacket for a twist on the Canadian tuxedo.

2. Pencil Midi Skirt

Channel your inner office siren with this season’s iterations of column skirts and pencil midis. If you want to jump on the workwear trend (actual office not required), try a high-waisted midi skirt paired with our striped Portofino Shirt. Complete the look with statement gold earrings and loafers.

Womens Athleisure Skirt

3. Athleisure Skirt

The comfort factor is a must when it comes to adding new pieces to your wardrobe, which is where our Luxe Comfort collection comes in to slay the day. Going straight from your hot girl walk to impromptu drinks? Just pair a soft, stretchy mini skirt with a matching tank and throw your hair into a high pony. Or, opt for a sporty pleated mini skort and bodysuit combo to give the appearance that you just came from tennis (AKA slept in late).

Mens Short Sleeve Shirts

4. Faux-Leather Skirt

Sleek leather is a yes from us, and an effortless way to add some edge to preppier or ultra-feminine pieces. If your go-to black mini is due for a replacement, try our faux-leather version with built-in shorts for confidence with every wear.

Womens Cargo Skirts

5. Cargo Skirt

The early 2000s cargo trend has been popping up everywhere, and skirts are no exception. For a fresh take, try a front-slit maxi skirt paired with a classic white tee and strappy heels. You can also balance the utilitarian details with a flowy peasant top, or lean into the minimalist aesthetic by adding a high-neck tank and flat sandals and sticking to all neutral tones.
