Hillary Chybinski: Easy Summer Skirt Style

Easy Summer Skirt Style

I have a love-hate relationship with skirts. When I worked in an office, I loved wearing a great pencil skirt, stockings and heels - it was my 90's uniform. But then the bare-leg fad came into play, along with causal work places. But I was in finance, and bare legs were taboo (and mostly still are FYI). So my love of skirts faltered.

It's only recently, that I have added some simple skirts to my wardrobe again. Skirts I can wear bare-legged (thanks to my Jergens) and still feel comfortable while looking stylish. A newly found favorite, is this Meryl Skirt from Aventura Clothing. I selected it as part of my Ambassador Campaign, and when it came, I was not disappointed.

Aventura Meryl Skirt with the Mayfield Sleeveless Top

First of all I love the wine color of this skirt. It's different than my typical black. But with the detailing, it looks GREAT with black, like this sleeveless t-shirt! I love the way it fits - I ordered a smaller size, as these types of skirts tend to be too big around my hips if I order my usual size. (Note that sizing has LESS to do with the skirt and how it's made and MORE to do with my body shape.) It's so comfortable, and not too short ( or too long). I think it would look great with a pair of heeled wedges for a night out, and can carry into fall with a pair of black boots and a 3/4-length sleeve black t-shirt.

Did I mention the great detail on the skirt?? This one is definitely in my weekly rotation of "real clothes" this summer.

Are you a fan of skirts in the summer?

  2. I prefer skits and dresses in the summer since there's more breathing room.

  3. I love this skirt! It looks so comfortable and flowy...perfect for hot, summer days.

  4. Super cute!! I end up wearing more dresses thank skirts in the summer – (or running skirts - but those don't count).
