A skirt is a versatile piece of clothing that can be worn by any woman with any personality and fashion style. No matter what mood you’re in, what time of the day it is, or what occasion or event you’re going to, there’s a skirt you can wear that will make you look confidently beautiful, chic, sexy, and gorgeous.
If you can have every type of skirt there is, that would be wonderful. But of course, you must consider your closet space and budget, so you want to keep your wardrobe to the essentials.
Here are seven types of skirts you need in your wardrobe.
1. A-line Skirts
A-line skirts are easy to wear and are flattering for any body type because it puts emphasis on the waist and hides the hips.
It’s also perfect for any climate or weather and goes with absolutely anything—be it plain shirts, button-downs, ruffled sleeves, crop tops, or any top you have. You can also wear them with sneakers, boots, strappy sandals, stilettos, or plain pumps.
Choose a discreet stripe or plaid print for your daily office wear or pick solid colors so that you can wear them with printed tops. Floral print and plaits are worn best during your days off work or on casual occasions.
2. Circular Skirts
These types of skirts usually have a lighter fabric so that it flows around your knees in a circular motion.
They are also stylish and fashionable. Just don a printed sweater over your button-down top and team it up with a circular skirt for a preppy look or wear a cropped top with it during the summer.
If you want a tougher look, wear lace-up boots. For a soft and dainty look, wear a floral print blouse and strappy flats. This skirt is extremely versatile!
3. Pencil Skirt
Pencil skirts feature a straight fit that’s snug at the hips down to the knees, so it makes you look sleek and tall. It’s a classic, sexy style that’s often worn by women in the office. But these days, pencil skirts can be worn just about anywhere—from work to parties and more formal occasions.
Wear them with lace tops for a classy look or pair them with a plain t-shirt when you’re dressing down. Pair them with a graphic tee for a trendy look and use it with strap heels to make your legs look longer! It also looks just as stylish when worn with elegant flats.
4. Denim Skirt
Denim skirts are timeless. If you don’t own one, grab one now. It comes in a variety of lengths and cuts, so be sure to pick one that flatters your individual figure best.

5. Maxi Skirt
Maxi skirts cover your ankles and sometimes, completely touch the ground. The great thing about maxi skirts is that they look so beautiful with flats, so you can be as comfortable as you want.
If you want to give it a sexier look, pair it with a cropped top or an off-the-shoulder blouse. Floral print maxis look great during the summer and can be paired with solid-colored tops.
Because they cover the whole length of your legs, maxi skirts can be worn with strappy sandals, so your toes peek out while walking.
