The Most Flattering Kind Of Skirt Is Back For Summer

Button up!

Our favorite skirt trend is back again: button-down, A-line mini skirts. We’re excited that this huge trend from last summer is still going strong. Why? Well, for starters it is an ever-flattering cut that's perfect for every body type. And while you can always rock the classic, '70s denim version, this sweet style makes an appearance in every fabric from linen to leather. The simple row of contrasting buttons down the front adds elegant detailing and literally draws a line down the middle of your outfit, making it appear more streamlined. Better still, it's a versatile piece that can easily take you from a breezy summer shopping day to a crisp fall walk in the park. 
 
Still having flashbacks of the not-quite-so-elegant mini skirt à la the '00s (close acquaintance of the Ugg)? There are plenty of ways to style a button-down mini that will convince you it's more sophisticated like that. Try pairing yours with a cute white top and a pair of old-faithful Stan Smiths for a no-fuss, less-is-more look. If you're into the black leather skirt style, liven it up (and avoid looking too vampish) with a bold, graphic tee, a bright lip and block pumps – or for hot summer days style it out with mini gladiator sandals and a billowing blouse. Alternatively, make a real statement by piling on the denim: rock a light chambray shirt with a tougher cotton skirt – bonus points for colorful pops of floral embroidery. 

Take a look below for our picks for your closet. With this many options, we’re glad this style is in it for the long-haul:
