We were browsing the racks at Forever 21, and we were pleasantly surprised to find a wealth of fabulous skirts that don’t require a personal fortune to enjoy. The beauty of skirts are that they’re so easy to fit - they don’t require immaculate tailoring in order to look right. So they’re consistently one of the best bets at cheap chic stores like Forever 21. Plus, they’re fun and flirty…and perfect for the broiling weather we’ve been seeing. Here’s our six favorite picks for sophisticated skirts under $20:
Brushstroke Swing Skirt | $14.80 at Forever 21
What to wear it with? Allow your inner artist to come out in this brushstroke print skirt. Wear it with a solid colored top with arty detailing (drapes, pleats, and folds are always a plus) and a structured menswear blazer.
Linen Side Pleat Skirt | $15.80 at Forever 21
What to wear it with? Let the side pleat shine with a ruffly blouse (tucked in) and a cropped sweater.
Abstract Paisley Skirt | $16.90 at Heritage 1981
What to wear it with? Wear this tribal print skirt with a pair of gladiator sandals and a simple tank.
Paint Stroke Flare Skirt | $19.80 at Forever 21
What to wear it with? Mix things up by pairing this elegant full skirt with a grafitti print top. We love the mix of high and low.
Fold Over Woven Skirt | $17.80 at Forever 21
What to wear it with? Try a crisp white shirt or a sailor striped top for a classic, elegant look.
Contrast Print Linen Skirt | $14.80 at Forever 21
What to wear it with? Let this skirt shine by pairing it with a solid colored top–such as a drapey, knit blouse.
