What to wear with a skater skirt?
Choose your skater skirt according to your dress style
Whether you like the casual style or the chic style, the skater skirt is all-terrain and combines very easily with many fashion pieces. For a trendy rock look, we advise you to opt for a leather skater skirt. This type of model is very popular this season with its high waist and can be worn with a beautiful lace blouse as well as a slightly oversized sweater. Combine your outfit with heeled ankle boots to support the chic side of the outfit or with biker boots to accentuate the rock spirit. Don’t forget the accessories !! A felt hat and / or a choker choker will enhance your outfit in no time!
For a casual look, opt for a denim skater skirt . Denim is king in the land of casual style! Choose a material light enough so that the shape of the skirt does not weigh down the silhouette. Therefore, we opt instead for a light denim skater skirt that we will wear with sneakers and a top. For a sportwear look, dare the colored skirt! A gray or burgundy skater skirt that you will wear with a basic t-shirt or a cotton sweater with messages and a pair of trendy Van’s or Dad Shoes sneakers.
For a chic look, opt for a black or white skater skirt in summer. Wear it with refined materials such as embroidery, lace or silk top and add a blazer or a fitted jacket for the glamorous touch. Again, do not skimp on accessories: a headband, a scarf tied in your hair, a chain with large links or golden hoops will bring a lot of elegance.
