Spring has sprung. It’s time to show your legs (and your toes) in the best skirts of the season. Shorts are a good option, too, but skirts are an even better place to start. That being said, I rounded up maxis, midis, and minis for any and every occasion from brands like Anthropologie, Banana Republic, Aritzia, and DISSH.

Whether you need a pleated option for the office, a silky slip for your next date night, or a black miniskirt for dinner and drinks with friends, these are the ten best spring skirts to shop now.

Donni The Satiny Simple Skirt
$158
$158

Chocolate brown is my favorite color to wear of late. It offers the ease and versatility of black without the predictability. Unlike other satin skirts in my collection, this Donni design features a flowy fit that’s forgiving and flattering. It drapes beautifully, and I don’t have to worry about it clinging to my body in all the wrong places.

Looking for a miniskirt that’s appropriate for the office, happy hour, and beyond? This one from & Other Stories fits the bill. It’s easy to style with a cream sweater or white tank top.

Leather does not have to be reserved for fall and winter; this sleek beige skirt works all year round. Pair it with a button-down for the office or a tank top for spring dinner dates.

I would usually never gravitate toward neon, but I’m actually very excited about this recent addition to my wardrobe. The low-rise fit is fun and flirty. Plus, the side ties help cinch my waist. Catch me wearing it (probably more than once) during my upcoming trip to Puerto Rico.

This simple black skirt is a favorite for spring because it’s actually long enough on me, which is rare. If you’re on the taller side and find that most maxi skirts are awkwardly short, add this one to your cart. (I’m five-eight, for reference.) Aside from the length, I also love the Tencel Lyocell material because it’s soft, lightweight, and easy to dress up or down.

More Options:

British label Rixo has mastered the art of making playful prints (like polka dots and paisley) feel more elevated and mature. Pair this silk slip skirt with the matching top and your favorite ballet flats for the perfect spring brunch look.

This maxi moves like a dream thanks to the artfully cut pleats and high-quality satin fabric. It’s available in black and this champagne color that has a slight sheen.

Say hello to the perfect going-out skirt. The dainty buttons will make it stand out from the other black minis in your closet.

Deputy style editor Joanna Nikas recommends this pleated midi, which is available in black, white, beige, and gray. The expert tailoring makes it look more expensive than it actually is, plus it will hold its shape throughout the day.

Yes, skorts can look put-together — and the proof is in this high-waisted linen one from DISSH. It has functional pockets, belt loops, and (of course) built-in shorts for maximum comfort all day long.
