We’ve already shown you our 4 Fun Retro Style Print Dresses for Summer – now it’s time for the retro style skirts to shine.
Summer is time to break out some of your lighter and more colourful skirts after the long winter is finally over. All the skirts here are more of the easy wearing classic A-line or swing skirt shape. Flattering because it is fitted at the waist but then with ample room around your body to feel comfortable. And when its a lighter material it also creates that all important swishy and flowy effect that feels so elegant when you are walking around.
Here’s a few of our favourite vintage style swing skirts with gorgeous print patterns. And the first cab off the rank is the super-adorable and charming cats and dogs skirt.
Rain, hail or shine the Raining Cats and Dogs Swing Skirt is just perfect for any weather, because its utter cuteness is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. At the same time it is not so cutesy as to look like a costume. From further away it looks like a dark blue skirt with a print. PS. If you look closely you’ll see there’s more than just cats and dogs on the skirt. Plus it’s a flattering classic full A-line style.
Read all about it – the Newspaper Print 50s Swing Skirt is another vintage style skirt that everyone will notice. This skirt makes a statement. It may be black and white but it has bold splashes of red that lift it into a skirt worth talking about. Imagine it paired with sheer black stocking and stilettos for more of a vampy look. Or dress it down by wearing nude stockings and flats. You can easily combine it with a solid white, black or red top or a dressy shirt or blouse would dress it up more for the office.
But one advantage it has over the dress is that the skirt has pockets! So you can feel extra chic and comfortable promenading around in summer. It’s a really comfortable dress with a lovely print. Perfect for nature-lovers and bird-watchers!
And for an extra burst of colour during summer, take a look at the beautiful Wildflower Red & White Retro skirt. It’s a vintage style swing skirt with a lovely floral pattern. Look at the close up of the print below to see how beautiful it is! We especially love the bright red poppies and how the floral print is more spread out at the top and then denser in the lower half of the skirt. You can easily pair this with a simple plain top and let the skirt grab all the attention. Wear it with flats or heels.
So there you have it – a handful summer friendly retro print skirts to keep you cool and colourful over summer. Check out our site for even more vintage style skirts for any season.
