6 Wrapped Summer Skirts Outfits Options To Explore Now
1. Maxi Length Wrap Skirts
Wrap skirts are most popular in longer styles, so for those of you who want a full coverage skirt or a longer summer look, try these ones out. The maxi skirts are also usually high-waisted, making them great for pairing with a crop top or evening blouse.
A good way to style a long wrapped skirt is to add a belt – this is best when the maxi skirt is high-waisted. Adding a belt defines your waist and adds an accessory to the look. This is ideal for any evening outfit as you can wear a colorful skirt and also match the belt to your shoes or bag.
Most maxi-length wrapped skirts have a leg split. This is usually where the wrap ends. Wearing a maxi skirt with a split can add a flirty detail as your leg peaks out. To take advantage of this, you could add some statement boots or attractive tights that peak out when you walk. If you want to add more subtle detail, an ankle bracelet or stiletto can work well too.
Midi-length wrap skirts are popular styles like the maxi alternatives. Midi-length skirts tend to be better for daytime looks, however, it always depends on how you style them. The leg slits on the midi skirts tend to be less dramatic than maxi length ones too, midi wrap skirts are often more casual.
For summer 2021, floral prints are popular for midi-length wrap skirts, especially in cotton or natural fabrics. These skirts give off a boho vibe that’s perfect for everyday events. Throw on a casual tee or a blouse and tuck this into your wrapped skirt for a comfortable yet stylish outfit. We recommend that you pair this outfit with sneakers or platform sandals too.
If you’re after a midi skirt that wraps for an evening look, avoid the cotton skirts and get a wrapped skirt made from silky fabric. Silky wrapped skirts in an animal print are a great alternative to the floral trend. These can be paired with some neutral heels and a black bodysuit for a perfect drinks or date night look.
If you prefer wearing mini skirts, you can still enjoy the wrapped skirt trend! Often people think of wrapped skirts as being long and maxi, however, there are some cute mini options available too! These mini options aren’t as dramatic, but they are a great detail to any look.
For 2021 the mini style wrap skirts tend to be in sage green, beige, or cream colors. These more neutral colors are perfect for the summer when you have a tan! These tones are also great for pairing as they match well to the majority of colors – this saves you stressing over what tops and jackets to pair with them!
Satin and silky fabrics are popular for mini-wrapped skirts. Some have bow tie details on the side where the skirt wraps too. Try getting a matching crop top in the same color for a cute co-ord look that can be worn day and night.
Ruffles have been a key trend over the past couple of years, so why not add them to all garments! Wrap skirts, especially when longer, are perfect for a flirty look. All the fabric adds detail to your outfit and makes you look more high fashion, so when an extra ruffle is added, this makes the look even more dramatic.
Ruffle wrap skirts are popular in pinks and reds – perfect for embracing your feminine side. Many options available also include dainty florals, as these prints are so small they don’t take away from the skirt’s detail. Big prints and lots of ruffles can be too much sometimes.
A white blouse or top is a good option with these ruffle skirts. Adding more print and color can be difficult if your skirt is more dramatic. Match your shoes and bag to your top color for a coordinated look.
Sometimes big, bold prints work, sometimes they don’t. When it comes to wrapped skirts, abstract patterns are best! Since the wrap skirt is asymmetric and can fall in different directions, a less precise print will work best – an image that needs to be in one place would look off.
Bold colors and abstract designs are favorites for this trend. When you search for a printed wrapped skirt, a lot of florals appear. If you keep searching, there are bolder prints available, too, though! A bold print is never out of style, but knowing what colors suit you is the key. Make sure you have some neutral garments at home that match the tones in the print as you don’t want to clash!
Mesh is another material that’s become very popular for 2021. We first saw it in tops, then flares, and now skirts too. The great thing about mesh is that it layers well, perfect for wrapped skirts! Mesh is a sheer fabric, allowing you to see the layers underneath. This can add depth to your looks too.
Mesh is often printed, which can add some detail to your clothes. If you often fear prints, a mesh skirt is an excellent way to get into them, as the sheer fabric can make the print more subtle. We recommend mesh skirts for evening looks or hot days. The thin fabric will keep you cool while helping you look stylish.
Wrapped skirts come in all sizes and lengths. Make sure you try this summer trend out before the fall season! Have you tried a wrap skirt? Let us know what you think!
