Fun summer skirts that double for work and play

Check out these lovely summer skirts that’ll do double duty for both work and play… honestly, who wants to buy more than they have to?

You know my thoughts:

  • Buy the best quality items you can afford so that they’ll last for years to come
  • Refresh and add life to your wardrobe by adding a fun skirt or two every summer
  • You can save $$ by finding pieces that can work for more than one area of your life

Here are my picks for early summer:


Ohne Titel Banded Slit Skirt

A quick style tip:

  • This skirt can handle being paired with a patterned blouse or a solid colour.  I’d do something a bit bolder than a white or beige blouse….especially for a summer evening look.


Heidi Merrick Driving Skirt

A quick style tip:

  • For work, I’d add a bit more of a structured look to the top half of this outfit (think blazer) but for a more casual weekend look, I’d go with something feminine and flowy.


The Rodnik Band Fish Scale Print Skirt

A quick style tip:

  • I’d go with a bright bold blouse for this one… both for work and play.  To dress this up for a night out, I’d pair chunky bright accessories.


Club Monaco Penny Printed Pencil Skirt

A quick style tip:

  • For a work look, I’d keep this look soft and ultra-feminine by pairing it with a pale or pastel colour silk blouse.  I’d suggest keeping the accessories to 1-2 minimal items.  For an evening look, I’d rock a stack of chunky bracelets with chandelier earrings and perhaps a bold-coloured silk tank.


MARNI Brick Ruffle Skirt

A quick style tip:

  • I love this skirt.  For work, I’d keep it simple with a white silk blouse and nude pumps.  For an evening look, I’d probably keep the blouse simple and rock chunky, strappy heels and big, over-the-top earrings.
