It's hard to keep track of all of the different styles, because even though each one is different, they're all as cute as can be. It's hard to pick a favorite, which is why you should aim to add all of them to your collection. Here are a few stylish skirts that you might not own yet, but you should run out to buy:

1 A Tulip Skirt

They're perfect for occasions when you want to look classy but still show a teeny bit of skin, because the skirt will reveal the area between your knees and thighs.

2 A Broomstick Skirt

5 A Bubble Skirt

6 A Wraparound Skirt

Some of them are the same length all the way across, while others are short on one side and long on the other. It's the perfect type of skirt for when the warm weather hits, because it screams summer vacation.

7 A Layered Skirt

If you buy a light one, you'll achieve a princess look, but if you buy a dark one, you can achieve a rocker look.

You can never have enough skirts hanging in your closet, because there are dozens of different kinds. What's your favorite type of skirt to wear?
