15 Long Skirt Outfits for Summer
Once upon a time I bought a beautiful long skirt from Mango, and my DMs haven’t had a rest since. Seriously, there’s nothing like a long skirt that truly grabs a person’s attention (okay, gorgeous dresses also merit a double-take, but I digress). Something about the way it flows and dances with each step is just mesmerizing. And while everyone is talking about itty bitty micro skirts at the moment (we’re looking at you, Bella Hadid), there’s simply more occasions that call for a long skirt.
Plus, it’s impressive just how many outfits you can create with a single long skirt. Sneakers, heels, and boots are all great companions, while intricate tops, T shirts, and crewnecks can also be paired interchangeably. Now factor in the different types of long skirt styles to choose from (pleated, skin-tight, flowy, to name just a few) and the options become endless. But of course, you can also find matching top and bottom sets to make life a bit easier.
Don’t worry, no one is asking you to abandon those tennis skirts. Just consider the 15 gorge long skirt outfits ahead as further summer wardrobe inspo. Who knows? You might even find your new favorite go-to brunch look!

How do I wear long skirts in the summer?
You’re probably thinking: mini skirts are made for summer, while long skirts are best for the fall. Well, I’m here to tell you that these lengthier yet still breezy pieces can easily be worn during the hottest months of the year. Here’s how:
- Pay close attention to the type of fabric.
We’re big fans of linen, cotton, and viscose for summer to get as much breathability as possible, even on punishingly humid days.
- Opt for skirts with a leg slit, or pick a style that is loose and flowy.
Because maximum ventilation is def the goal when it comes to long skirts in the summer.
- If your skirt of choice is high-waisted, go cropped up top.
Not only does a tube top or bra top look cute AF; minimal material and a bit of skin will keep you feeling cool, too.
