Style Guide: Must-Have Spring Skirts


If you’re looking to expand your skirt collection, there's no better time to go shopping than right now! Between hip-hugging midi skirts, funky minis, and A-line silhouettes, there’s a skirt style for every occasion this season. The Centre is filled with pretty options, so we’ve narrowed down our favourites that will do the most for your wardrobe.

The patterned mini
A flattering mini skirt in a fun print? Yes, please! Not only does the pattern look gorgeous, the high waist defines your mid-section, while lengthening the line of your legs. Denim-on-denim is the perfect compliment to this skirt since it doesn’t compete with the pattern, but still adds interest and dimension. For the most flattering effect, choose a jacket that hits either near the waistline or below the hemline, so that it doesn’t cut off your butt midway.

The relaxed midi
You can’t go wrong with a midi skirt – especially one in green faux suede. This style sits at your natural waist, and isn’t skintight, which makes it comfortable for a long (or hot!) summer day. We love how the elastic waistband gives this skirt an athleisure feel, making it easy to dress up or down. Whether you’re rocking this at the office or on date night, it can be worn with anything from a plain white tee to a silk cami.

The ladylike a-line
We’re channelling our inner Audrey Hepburn with this sophisticated, Parisian-inspired look. Since the skirt is neutral, you can easily get away with louder patterns on top. This skirt has sheer layers that make it perfect for hot days when you’re looking for something breathable, but formal or office-friendly. The key to looking like Audrey? Ballet flats, black and white, and minimal, chic accessories.
