Ready to find outfits for every occasion this summer? Start with our list of mini, maxi, and midi skirt ensembles for every summer activity—from brunch with the girls to date night with your boo! Forget the pants and get inspired!

1. Linen Skirts + Cropped Top

While you might reach for a slip skirt first thing during the sweatiest summer days, it’s time to pivot to something a little different. A linen skirt feels lighter against your skin and wicks away moisture better.

Linen also looks and feels like a luxury material, ensuring you seem more sophisticated on date nights and during semi-formal events. Pair your linen skirt with a classy cropped top that shows just a bit of waist.

You can pair longer linen skirts with bulky sandals. One of our go-to cute summer outfit ideas with a skirt is a mini linen skirt with knee-high boots for a night-out look that defies the breeze!

2. Sporty Skirts + Graphic Tees

The tennis skirt definitely had a moment—especially in 2020. But even though it’s not as popular today, sporty skirts are still really big in the fashion world. Pleated tennis skirts, wrap skorts, and uneven hemlines are in!

Create a sporty summer outfit with a skirt by adding a boutique graphic tee and tennis shoes for an easy, breezy ensemble that still looks put-together. Perfect for the tennis courts or playing volleyball on the beach, you’ll be chic and comfy!

3. Denim Skirts + Silky Blouse

Denim is a must-have material in your closet because it’s so easy to pair with other styles. You can throw on a denim skirt with a graphic tee, silky blouse, or crop top to put together a cute summer outfit with a skirt!

We especially love mixing denim with silky materials because the contrast of casual denim with elegant satin is unique and unusual. Make your ensemble shine by mixing and matching materials with different textures!

4. Wild Print + Basic Top

If you’re seeing mini skirts everywhere for this summer’s fashion, you’re not alone. Especially those skirts with wild prints and bright colors. Add this look to your rotation when you shop neon hues for your closet!

Once you find the perfect piece, you can pair it with any neutral top. You can also enhance this cute summer outfit with a skirt by matching your top to one of the colors in the skirt’s pattern.

5. Ruffled Maxi + Vintage Top

White ruffled maxi skirts have been making their appearance all over social media. While these were an early 2000s trend, we’re happy to see them back on the fashion scene. Pair one with a vintage band tee and boots for a 90s vibe!

If you want to take this look all the way back in time, make sure to throw on a denim jacket and a choker—it’s the ultimate grunge summer outfit with a skirt!

6. Drawstring Skirts + Sporty Tops

The drawstring skirt offers you an adjustable look with a hemline you can change to suit your mood. Wear it loose for a full-length maxi, or pull it up to create a midi or even a mini skirt!

The adjustable skirt is great for all-day wear because you can wear it short during the heat of the day and leave it long once it cools down. You can also dress this look up with a monochrome blouse or keep it casual with a tank.

Let your shoes seal the deal when you elevate this cute summer outfit with a skirt and wedge heels or dress it down with sandals.

7. Printed Skirts + Matching Top

When you’re heading on vacation, don’t forget to pack a printed skirt set for a no-brainer outfit that makes a powerful statement! You’ll be considered a fashion girl everywhere you go with a bright pattern that stands out.

When looking for the perfect pattern, florals are a fan favorite but don’t forget that polka dots and stripes are also summer classics. Pair this cute summer outfit with a skirt with slides or mules to ensure you’re comfortable walking around town!

8. Monochrome Ensembles

If you’re in doubt about how to put together a cute summer outfit with a skirt, monochrome is always the way to go. You can opt for a head-to-toe black ensemble that will always make your clothing look more expensive or keep it cool with lighter colors.

Some of the best colors for spring and summer monochrome ensembles include white, sky blue, pale yellow, and light pink.

9. Crochet Skirts + Bathing Suits

You might be thinking that crochet clothing is such a grandma look. But we’re here to tell you that vintage old lady vibes are the new chic—especially when you pair them with risque tops and ensembles to create a cute summer outfit with a skirt.

We would pair a crochet midi skirt with a bikini top and oversized button-up, but you can also wear your crochet skirt with a one-piece swimsuit or bodysuit. The sleek top with the textured bottom is fun to wear and look at!
