6 Skirts That Will Make You Forget About Your Shorts

True, summer brings lots of good things: an abundance of sunshine, beach days, al fresco dining, bare legs, warm nights, you name it. But one thing I squirm about is having to swap out my jeans for shorts. Maybe you love shorts. Maybe you adore your legs. What I say to you? Hurrah! But for those of us who prefer a little more coverage, summer skirts are the answer. A-line; midi; maxi; pencil—I love ‘em all. Plus, summer skirts make me feel a bit more put together when I’m out running errands. Especially when they’re adorned with embellishments or come in a funky pattern.

Of course, affordability is key. Which is why I’ve rounded up six of my favorite, affordable skirts, perfect for your (shorts-less) summer wardrobe.

  1. Antropologie Denim Skater Skirt

Antropologie Mini Skirt

Starting with this adorable denim skater skirt from Anthropologie. For only $88, this flirty little denim piece will feel as close to shorts as possible.

  2. Gap Mini Swing Skirt


Nothing says summer fresh more than a white skirt. I love this midi white swing skirt from GAP. But I love it’s price even more: $59.95. The length is perfect for a summer date night; pair it with gold sandals and a chambray shirt and you’re ready for dinning al fresco.

  3. Asos Wrap Pencil Skirt


Sweet and simple, this ASOS wrap pencil skirt comes in the prettiest blush pink—with scallop detailing. Yes. Scallop detailing. And for only $35.59? Snag one while you can!

  4. Zara Tulle Skirt


One of my favorite skirts I own is a black tulle skirt—it’s girly; dainty; and just plain fun. But for summer, I’m lusting after this golden one from Zara—for only $49.90. It’s not too full, not too long, and not too anything but perfect.

  5. Loft Fluid Maxi Skirt


Easy, breezy, beautiful – fluid maxi skirt. Loft has one of the most effortless maxis that also comes with pockets. It’s only $69.50 and comes in a yummy turquoise they label as shady glade.

  6. Lou & Gray Ankle Skirt


Comfort is one of the key reasons I wear shorts. But if I can get away with a just-as-comfortable skirt? (And for only $30.50?) I’ll take it! One I hope to be rocking all summer long is this ankle skirt from Lou & Grey. The misty lake color mimics a dark denim and the elasticized waist allows for ample amounts of ice cream eating. Win-win.
