The Summer Skirt-and-Top Combinations to Wear

It’s no secret that skirts are up there with printed dresses as a key buy this summer. From Topshop and Zara and up, versatile midis, beach vacation minis, and summery maxi skirts are everywhere. While dresses are simple, just add shoes and accessories, skirt outfit combos take a little more planning. I’ll show you what trending tops look best with this season’s fabulous skirts.

So, from power blouses teamed with pencil or pleasted skirts, and denim minis paired with a sleek bodysuit or chic swimsuit (there are plenty of options around), keep scrolling for our favorite top and skirt combos seen on street stylers and Instagram’s top influencers.

Lucy Williams has nailed 2018 power dressing with this sleek midi skirt, ’80s-inspired blouse, and sneakers  to give the outfit a modern spin.  
Oversized layers are a chic way of putting a warm spin on summery midi skirts—because we all know the weather can be temperamental. Keep it tonal in key S/S 2018 shades like Ada Oguntodu for extra points.
“If in doubt, pairing a skirt with a classic white T-shirt is always a safe bet. If you’re feeling bold, however, follow Tamu McPherson’s lead and clash those prints. ” ~WWWUK

I love the trend of mixing fabrics, textures, colors and patterns.  There is no better feeling than the freedom to express your style through free form.

“The flash of shoulder on a Bardot top can help to balance out a maxi skirt. Try a clashing print like Karoline Dall to break things up if you’re feeling a little swamped by the full length.”~WWWUK

Shop these off-the-shoulder tops which are perfect for pleated, pencil or full skirts.


Perfect for beach vacations or any weekend away from the city, layering a free flowing skirts in vibrant colors with a wedged heel is a perfect combination.
Take a tip from Freddie Harrel and wear your midi with a cropped tee or blouse. No need for bulky tucking-in here. This combo also looks super chic if your skirt is high waisted.
One of my favorite summer looks are matching top and skirt looks are all the craze!  An easy, fashionable look with lots of style.  Just add accessories and a comfy shoe to complete the look.
“Matching skirt-and-top separates make for an easy way to nail smart work outfits or more formal occasion dressing. Go for a plush finish like Charlotte Groeneveld to add a luxe touch.” ~WWWUK
“The fastest way to dress up a miniskirt is to team it with a simple white shirt. Lucy Williams’s oversized style helps to off-set any stuffiness, while a skirt in a luxe fabric will add extra polish.” ~WWWUK
