The mid-length skater skirt

To maximise the great skater look, its best worn above the knee line or minimum mid-thigh length finish. This is mainly because they are created for fab street fashion for that chic finish. They are a great party dress which only has competition from the likes of pencil or miniskirts.

The short skater effect

OK, there are no must-do’s on this style as it is all down to one’s own personal taste and confidence. However, the short skater should never be worn the same length as a mini skirt. It’s a dress with flare so let the dress express itself.

The perfect skater skirt for summer

Given the summer is warmer than any other time of the year, light fabrics are always the right choice. However, darker colour skaters are great for those of you going on holidays as they can be paired with a wider selection of tops in your case.

Avoid any long sleeve top designs when wearing a skater during the summer. If you fear a change in climate then tag along a neutral ladies cardigan as extra mobile layering.

For example, if you decide upon a blue or navy theme, opt for shades of green, blues or even purple. Neutral or nude shoes sneakers or kitten heels complete any summer skater skirt look.
