Hands up who’s loving summer?
After months of waiting and fantasising, summer is finally upon us. From trips to the beach with friends to summer events, there’s just so much to look forward to – and so much warm-weather outfit planning to be done!
Skirts are a firm staple throughout the summer months. Classic, comfortable, cool and stylish, every woman needs a decent selection of skirts in her collection. But, what footwear goes best with each type of skirt? Whether you’re struggling to put together a killer look or you’re simply after some summer footwear inspo, join us here at Moda as we talk through all the shoes to wear with your favourite skirts.
What shoes to wear with a pencil skirt
If you’re looking to step up your look around the office or just bring a touch of glam to your wardrobe, a pencil skirt is a perfect option. Chic, sophisticated and endlessly stylish, a pencil skirt will bring an instant touch of class to your look.
However, the length and fit of a pencil skirt often make them difficult to style – especially when it comes to your footwear! With most pencil skirts cutting off on or below the knee, you need footwear that helps elongate the legs and leave an elegant finish. And for this, we would always recommend heels!
A pair of stiletto heels go perfectly will a pencil skirt, adding length to your body and leaving a classy, sophisticated finish that is perfect for both evenings out or stepping it up around the office. Opt for a patent leather style for the ultimate in professionalism, or add a twist to your ensemble with bold leopard print or mocc croc heels. If you’re looking for something a little more casual, why not opt for mid heel sandals or a pretty peep toe?
What shoes to wear with a long skirt
Maxi skirts are a fabulous choice throughout spring and summer. Floaty, relaxed and with an inherent sense of romance, long skirts are ideal for everything from summer days at the beach to shopping trips with friends.
So, what shoes would you wear with a longer maxi skirt? We’d recommend fully embracing the flowing, boho-chic vibes and opting for a pair of flat sandals. Flat sandals are ideal for summer – they are stylish and versatile while being cool and comfortable to wear. To really nail the bohemian aesthetic, why not opt for a beautiful pair of beaded or embellished flat sandals?
What shoes to wear with short skirts
Of course, come summer, you really can’t beat a shorter skirt for coolness and comfort. From super casual denim skirts to jazzier options from evenings out, a mini skirt is a true summer staple.
What shoes to wear with short skirts really does depend on your occasion. If you’re rocking a casual denim skirt for off-duty chic, you can continue the relaxed vibes with a pair of flats. Flip flops or sandals are ideal for trips to the beach, while a pair of simple women’s trainers are ideal for nailing effortlessly cool weekend vibes.
If you’re wearing a shorter skirt for a special occasion – drinks with the girls, perhaps, or a work party – you may want to go for a heel to complete your look. A high or mid-length heel is perfect for really showcasing your legs, elongating your body and creating an elegant silhouette.
If you’re looking for additional height but are attending an outdoor event, why not opt for a pair of wedge sandals? These offer height and will look fabulous paired with a mini skirt, while remaining comfortable and practical on a variety of different surfaces.
So there you have it – all the shoes to help you make a fabulous impression this summer! For more stunning styles for any occasion, look no further than the Moda in Pelle collection. With a beautiful array of women’s shoes, sandals and accessories, you’re sure to discover your new season go-to.
