A midi or maxi skirt is one of the most overlooked separates this time of year, often taking a backseat to the summer dresses we all know and love! When I’m not in the mood for a dress, shorts, or jeans, a long summer skirt is an easygoing option that allows me to feel pulled together without much effort.
They’re so versatile; I love the way I can achieve different looks by pairing the same skirt with a white tee, tank top, or statement blouse, depending on what I’m going for.
I recently picked up this vibrant maxi, which pairs great with the matching top but can be styled dozens of ways for day and night. It checks all the boxes—breathable fabric, flawless fit, versatile length, and seasonal colors. It’s my first purchase from CocoShop, an Antiguan designer that’s been on my radar for a couple of years, and definitely won’t be my last!
In honor of all the ease a long summer skirt can bring your style, I thought it’d be fun to share chic options for the season—neutrals and colors—and my go-to brands for lightweight skirts in case you want to do some more browsing!

My Favorite Brands for Summer Midi and Maxi Skirts
Lightweight fabrics are the main thing I look for when shopping for summer skirts, so brands that do cotton, linen, and rayon well tend to be my go tos. Second to that, of course, is design!
My style leans feminine but not too romantic. I look for florals and solids in contemporary shapes that aren’t too vintage or voluminous. These are my favorite brands for just that!
