Flouncy, flared skirts are everywhere right now. They have a fun silhouette and look great all year round. Wear them with lots of layers during the winter time and pared down during summer. You can pick flared skirts because they tend to be more fitted around the waist and kick out at the bottom. If you want to add some flared skirts to your wardrobe then check out a few fashionable options, below.
1 Black Flared Skirt
Black skirts are a wardrobe staple. They can be dressed up or down, and styled in a variety of ways. Add a bit of flair to your wardrobe with a black flared skirt. This chic black skirt from Topshop sits at the lower end of the price range at $56. You can also find affordable styles by Forever 21 and Miss Selfridge. For those with more expensive tastes, you can find black flared skirts from designers such as Miu Miu and Rag & Bone.
2 Flared Jacquard Skirt
Ride out the baroque trend in a jacquard flared skirt. This season, try a brightly coloured skirt rather than a dark, jewel toned one. This fun flared skirt is $76 from Topshop. You can find flared jacquard skirts by a range of designers from ASOS to Celine.
3 Flared Bandage Mini Skirt
For something a bit daring, try a flared mini skirt. Choose one in a bold hue to really make a statement this season. Skirts like this one by Herve Leger feature a bodycon fit at the waist and a flared hem. It is extremely pricey though, at $880, so try stores like Topshop and ASOS for more affordable alternatives.
4 Flared Lace Skirt
Lace skirts are perfect for playing up a feminine angle. Team a flared lace skirt with a silky blouse and pumps for an understated yet elegant look. This neutral coloured skirt by Valentino is ridiculously expensive at $3000 dollars but you can bag more affordable versions at ASOS, Topshop, and Forever 21.
5 Flared Metallic Skirt
If you really want to make a statement, then take a fashion risk in a chic metallic skirt. Wear it at night with a slinky cami and heels, and accessorise with a smart blazer or a tough leather jacket depending on the look you're after. Designer skirts like those by Herve Leger (pictured here), Lanvin, and Catherine Malandrino are extremely expensive. However, you can find more budget-friendly buys at places like ASOS.
6 Flared Printed Skirt
The love affair with prints and patterns is still going strong. Add some interest to your outfit with a fun printed skirt. If a leopard print number like this one from Aquilano Rimondi isn't your thing, you can get cute floral skirts from Urban Outfitters, gingham skirts by Tracy Reese, or Aztec print numbers from River Island.
7 Flared Maxi Skirt
Floor length skirts can be a great alternative to mini and midi length skirts. This one from Reiss is fairly fitted at the top and flares out at the bottom to create a subtle fishtail effect. Dress it up at night with a slinky top and cocktail jewellery or dress it down during the day with slouchy t-shirts and knits. Similar skirts by Rachel Zoe and ASOS are also worth a look.
8 Leather Trimmed Flared Skirt
Work a tougher angle by choosing a flared skirt with (faux) leather trims. All things leather are in fashion right now and a skirt is a great way to wear the trend. This skirt from Miss Selfridge is one of the more affordable options available right now. Stores like Topshop and Piperlime also stock on-trend leather trimmed skirts.
Whether you choose a full circle skirt or one with a fluted hem, there are plenty of flared skirts to choose from this season. They're fun and flirty and can also add a little bit of drama to your look. Which of these flared skirts do you like best?
