And probably summer, too.

Things are definitely warming up out there. We’re not quite ready to break out a shoestring satin slip or a barely there heel, but jackets are being peeled off, skirts are getting floatier, and iced coffees are starting to appear in our daily routine. The upside of being a Canberra woman, and having to deal with a slow, late transition into spring/summer, is that it gives us loads of time to prepare.

Now is the perfect time to build up your warm-weather wardrobe. And there’s no better place to start than with a skirt. Which skirts are going to be this season’s heroes? Printed pleats are making a big splash, wrap skirts are the nineties flashback you’ve been waiting for, and we still can’t get enough of animal prints.

Wear these styles with a basic tee, a chic blouse or a strappy cami. Scroll for our selections for the skirt to kick off your spring/summer look.

Printed pleats

While the classic, mid-length pleated skirt is a wardrobe staple, it’s more sassy cousin – the printed pleat – is the one we’re all about this year. Monochrome, abstract or floaty and feminine, there’s a design out there for everyone.

Obviously we’ve been all over the animal print trend for ages, but for spring it has a new look. Zebra, leopard and cheetah prints are hitting monochrome notes and bolder and brighter colours. Bonus points for wearing more than one print at once.
