Midi skirts in fine silk or viscose flashed in the spring collections of the last few years regularly, but this summer they broke into the absolute top. If bicycles and other sports paraphernalia are not your choice in the city, it's time to pay attention to skirts in the spirit of neo-romanticism. We found 10 luxurious silk models - and the same number of their counterparts in the mass market.

A loose skirt in a muted shade of blue is also appropriate in the office - add to it a light blouse with puff sleeves, sandals with thin straps and a trench coat. In order not to change before the party, you can wear a silk top with thin straps or a sports bra under the blouse.
All shades of yellow are again at their peak this summer. Lemon total bow has all the chances to be a salvation when you need to quickly decide what to wear to the party. A lingerie-style skirt is the thing that will help out both in the office and on vacation.
Perhaps, pinkish and powdery models are one of the most livable: paired with a T-shirt, such a thing does not look too boudoir, and for a party it will make an excellent company with sandals with ribbons and a top in rhinestones. If your choice is a skirt with slits, do not forget about cycling shorts - this combo will allow you to ride a bike and play ping-pong on the veranda of your favorite cafe.
Scarlet silk is truly a royal choice. To reduce the degree of solemnity, wear such a skirt with hiker sandals or white sneakers, and grab a bomber or jeans for the evening.

If monophonic models seem too simple to you, rely on an animalistic pattern: a zebra, python and a leopard this summer can coexist in one look or make up a total look. An off-the-shoulder top with the same pattern or a simple white oversized blouse is perfect for a striped skirt.
The classic - a black midi skirt - is also good because it will fit into your everyday wardrobe even after the end of summer. Just add hikers or over the knee boots, a wool turtleneck and a jacket to it. Until then, wear it with a crop top and sandals.
Due to the laconic cut, a lingerie-style skirt will not draw all the attention to itself. It will appeal to those who are planning to experiment with style this summer (try on a midi with a velvet jacket or kimono embroidered with sequins), and adherents of minimalism.
The flirtation of designers with disco, 70s and 90s continues - you can find in stores both a leopard swimsuit and leggings with an animal pattern. A small print also looks good on smooth silk (or viscose) - however, otherwise we advise you to limit yourself to monochromatic things without unnecessary details.
Pull & Bear
The asymmetrical cut and wide hem will appeal to those who are used to moving a lot - after all, narrow midi models can hinder movement. A rich skirt color is a good reason to experiment with the color palette of your wardrobe. Choose tie-dye tops or similar shades of yellow and orange.
The pastel hue gives this model a vintage intonation - if you want to build an image around it, we recommend visiting a couple of vintage shops and looking for retro silk blouses and shirts with delicate prints. Blue will perfectly complement rich yellow - a clear hit of this summer - and sandy shades.
