We all know the value of a versatile denim skirt.
Slip it on with any combination of t-shirt and sneakers and you’ve got a stylish, certified summer outfit.
Every year there is always one silhouette that outshines the others, 2017 saw the rise of vintage-inspired raw hems, while 2016’s flagship piece was Topshop’s A-line button-down skirt.
With a multitude of styles on the market varying in hues from indigo to bleached, as well as myriad adornments, from embroidery to beading; it’s hard to choose which summer skirt is going to make the cut.

With Bershka and Zara offering plenty of styles, this is definitely a fresh take on it and is sure to give your look a pop of color and an added edge.
