5 beautiful skirt trends for the winter

Goodbye satin, pleats and ruffles, hello coarse materials, check patterns and mini fits! This fall/winter season, we’re saying goodbye to romantic, playful skirts and going for the tried and true. What’s coming back now and what’s new on the list of skirt trends – Tikbow does the check!

Maxi jeans skirt

A classic on our list of skirt trends: the denim skirt. But now the typical denim mini is getting competition from a retro model whose revival we would never have believed in: the denim skirt in maxi length! Luxury labels like Céline and Louis Vuitton brought the calf-length skirt in A-line cut back from fashion obscurity. A skirt trend that will catch on? That remains to be seen.

Because denim is so versatile, when it comes to styling, there’s usually pretty much nothing that can’t go. With the mini really everything is possible, with the maxi skirt, however, fingertip feeling is required, so that the retro look is really stylish and not just reminiscent of bygone days. If you want to play it safe, combine elegant pieces with the sporty skirt: tweed jacket or blazer, pumps and a small, bright clutch go well with the trendy piece. For a more everyday style, go for boots, a turtleneck shirt and a long coat. In addition, it is best to combine statement accessories, so that the outfit is not boring.

Wrap skirts

This winter, the wrap look is making a comeback. Admittedly, the style with the tied fabric was never really gone, but it wasn’t really popular in the past few years. That is changing now, fashionistas are currently wearing the loose wrapped Röcke up and down. Particularly popular are midi-length models in a sporty quilted look, or mini skirts with classic check patterns.

The great advantage of the wrap-around look is the figure-flattering effect. No other cut manages to create an hourglass silhouette so effortlessly – and the whole thing is easy to style, too. Whether shirt and blazer, knitted sweater or hoodie – with the wrap skirt there’s nothing that does not work, from sporty to elegant everything is possible.

Slit Skirts

Whereas before Röckees always had slits on the sides, now sometimes (XXL) slits in the front also provide more legroom. The trendy pieces are appropriately called slit skirts and are characterized by the open cut in the fabric. So that such a long slit is possible without showing too much when worn, the trend skirts usually come in midi lengths. Mini versions have two short slits in the front. As far as the choice of materials is concerned, everything from leather to cotton is in there, only the cut is always the same: straight and without much chi-chi – apart from the slit.

With their classic, straight fit, the trend skirts go with everything, but never look – boring thanks to the slit. However, this is exactly the point that harbors styling pitfalls. You should make sure that the slit does not reach much higher than mid-thigh, otherwise you may see too much, especially when sitting. And: the slit gives the skirt a certain sexiness. The rest of the outfit should therefore be a little easier on the statement piece in everyday life, so that it doesn’t look too much. Loose-fitting shirts with a round neckline, cool hoodies or blouses are perfect – the main thing is that the top looks a little more high-necked than the skirt.

Skirt trend leather

The trend is not only for classic colors like black or bottle green, but also for beige, khaki and cognac brown. The slightly flared mini version with a zip fastener in the middle looks particularly cool, but leather midi jackets also remain trendy, especially when they follow the slit trend.

Leather pieces alone are usually statement enough. The Röcke therefore do not need much additional ballyhoo. As a styling partner, a simple knitted sweater makes a good figure, with combat boots it’s rocky. With a blazer and loafers, the whole thing becomes business-suitable.

Pattern minis

The two-piece trend goes into the next round in winter! The bright color suits from the summer are now being replaced by soft costumes à la Chanel. Included: elegant miniskirts in tweed or knit look, with a light A-line shape and also with a check pattern;

The trendy skirts can also be worn without a matching blazer – they look elegant in any case. Therefore, the style break to chunky boots and leather jacket looks particularly cool with it. To loosen up the style, (chunky) loafers or brightly colored pumps also make sense as styling partners
