It’s hot and there’s nothing better than wearing lightweight summer skirts to keep you feeling cool. On truly scorching days you definitely don’t want to be in shorts or pants. This season there are so many options for you to choose from including long, flowy options and flirtier ones like mini skirts. They are also coming in the best fabrics for the summer. Cotton and linen are the way to go to keep cool and you can even find blends of the two that offer maximal breathability.
You can always go the sportier route as well with a skirt made of moisture-wicking fabric that’s used in your favorite activewear. We decided to round up the Mamas Uncut team’s favorite summer skirts for you to have some options that will serve you well in the dog days of summer.

How cute is that burnt orange gingham fabric? The Button-Front Easy Skirt features a ruffled elastic waistband, buttons down the front, and side slits for room to move around in. Oh, and did we mention it has pockets? It’s the perfect go-to summer skirt that pairs well with just about any top but we like something that can be tucked in to show off the skirt’s ruffles.

What is Naia? A man-made fiber made from FSC-certified and responsibly sourced wood pulp—it’s pilling resistant, cooler than polyester, and up to two times more breathable than nylon. It’s silky soft and one of the best fabrics for summer skirts at Everlane. This features an easy, pull-on ruffled waistband, two side slits for breathability and sits just at the calf. Again, it has pockets!

Goodthreads has a great reputation for making affordable yet durable garments and this orange, paisley mini skirt has such an energetic print we had to share it with you. There are several different fabrics to choose from among these summer skirts. If you’re looking for something shorter, this could be the best option for you!

Are you looking for something sporty and active? Meet The Sport Skort, a high-rise active skirt that’s simple and streamlined but also super functional. It’s designed with Girlfriend Collective’s compressive fabric that’s soft, sweat-wicking, and made from recycled bottles. It has built-in shorts with mesh pockets for your phone, keys, or whatever stuff you want to keep with you.

If you’re looking for a bargain, look no further than this midi-summer skirt from Amazon Essentials. This figure-flattering skirt is as stylish as it is comfortable. This versatile midi skirt is designed to hit at mid-calf to flatter any height. It’s not made from the most breathable material but you’re getting it at a fraction of the price of other summer skirts on this list. We’d still rock it.

How precious are the little butterflies in this print? Just darling!

A gorgeous print adorns this effortlessly flowy midi-length skirt, perfect for sunny weather looks that need an extra dose of bohemian charm. This one is made from viscose which is often lighter and smoother in feel than cotton.

Are you planning on taking a hike this summer? This skirt is destined for adventure. With plenty of storage and a built-in liner, this skirt holds your hiking essentials on trails and beyond. The outer fabric of this skirt is abrasion-resistant which means it will keep you safe on the trail. Built-in Luxtreme™ fabric liner is sweat-wicking and a four-way stretch with a cool, smooth feel. Sounds like a winner if you’re after something sporty.

Centre court’s calling! This lightweight skirt features accordion-style side pleats and mesh fabric panels on the liner to keep air flowing set after set. It is made with the same sweat-wicking and fast-drying fabric as the previous skirt. A dual-entry pocket in the liner holds a tennis ball and your phone. There’s also a pocket in the back for even more storage.

Are you looking for some texture? You’ll give a retro vibe in this knit skirt that’s more breathable than you might think. It’s one of The Drop’s staples that they boast as a sort of greatest hit. We love the Neapolitan ice cream colors of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla in the stripes above. If you want to look like a summer treat, this summer skirt could be the right fit for you.
There you go! We hope you enjoyed our favorite summer skirts and have found one that’s the right budget and style for you. It’s hot and the most comfortable thing in the world is a summer skirt to help you beat the heat. Have a great summer!
