Flattering A-line silhouette

The button-down skirts we see this season come with the A-line silhouette French designer Christian Dior made fashionable in the ’50s. With a narrow waist and A-shaped, these feminine skirts are super flattering on any body type. Additionally, the vertical line of buttons elongates the figure, a clever styling trick women use to look taller and thinner.

Mini, midi or maxi button-down skirts

Whether you prefer mini-skirts like the girls in Paris or midis and maxi lengths, you’ll find a button-down skirt to suit your style and rock this summer’s must-have look. Of course, these skirts are as easy-to-wear and versatile as your basic jeans. Nevertheless, the vertical buttons that embellish this summer’s skirts also elevate them, making your outfit look more polished and luxurious.

Fresh and stylish in cotton or linen skirts

Cotton and linen button-down skirts are the best options for summer’s hot days and evenings. You can wear them with anything, a basic t-shirt, tank tops, cut-out tops, crochet pieces; you name it. Of course, pair your staple skirt with on-trend clogs, but they also look fab with sneakers or sandals.
