12 Best Party Skirts and How to Wear Them

I’m really pleased to see so many fantastic skirts in the shops. We’ve spent several years in trousers and jeans and the skirt is now having its moment. There were so many gorgeous skirts I had trouble narrowing it down but I’ve chosen 12 and shown one look for each of them. The trend for wearing a party skirt with a jumper really appeals to me because you can dress them up for the evening with accessories or down for the day with boots. I’ve styled some with embellished jumpers – all of which could be worn again with trousers or jeans – some with more dressy tops and some with a cardigan.

Full skirts and cardigans

Embellished jumpers and full skirts

I love this look and it’s ideal if you are going to a venue that may be a bit chilly. Swap out the skirt for a pair of velvet or black jeans for a completely different look.

Skirts with party tops

The foil effect knife pleat skirt is a seasonal trend that looks just as good in the daytime with a sweatshirt or knit and boots. If you don’t want sparkles lace is a great alternative, I’ve shown this skirt with its matching top but you could wear a jumper or cardigan for a daytime party. I’ve styled the green sequin skirt with a plain top as it needs no added embellishment and it looks gorgeous mixed with rose gold accessories.

Sequin skirts

If the event calls for plenty of festive sparkle choose a skirt with sequins. Opt for winter whites and silver to stand out from all the black. And you can still wear an embellished knit to even the smartest event if the skirt is a shimmering column of sequins.
