What to wear with a white skirt in the Summer

1. Keep it casual with a graphic tee

Pairing a white skirt with a graphic tee is an easy way to create a casual, comfortable look. This combination works particularly well with denim or leather skirts, as it adds an edgy touch to the outfit. Choose a graphic t-shirt with a bold print or slogan and tuck it into your white mini skirt for a more polished look. Complete the outfit with a pair of sneakers or sandals, and you’re good to go.

Of course, if graphic t-shirts are not your thing, you could opt for a simple white tank top or white tee. A simple t-shirt goes a long way when it comes to white skirts. Shirts in different colors work since the white skirt is so neutral.

2. Go boho with a peasant top

For a relaxed bohemian look, pair your white skirt with a flowy peasant top. This look works particularly well with maxi skirts, as the loose silhouette of the top balances out the long length of the skirt.

Choose a top with a colorful print or embroidery to add some visual interest to the outfit. Accessorize with a wide-brimmed hat, chunky jewelry, and strappy sandals to complete the look.

3. Dress it up with a blouse

A white skirt can also be dressed up for a more formal occasion, such as a summer wedding or a fancy dinner. Pair your longer skirt with a silk blouse in a complementary color, such as pale pink or light blue. Tuck in the blouse and add a skinny belt to accentuate your waist. Finish the look with a pair of high heels and a clutch bag. Add a long coat if it’s a chilly Spring day.
