Scroll through your Instagram feed or take a twirl through your favorite boutique, and you’ll probably notice the skirt for summer is anything but basic. Tea length or knee length, summer’s top trend is a skirt flounced with flirty, feminine ruffles. But the ruffled skirt is not just a style monolith, no. From short and chic to bright and preppy, there’s more than one way to take on this trend, like our top six picks here.
1. H&M Gingham Ruffle Skirt
The classic picnic print gets a dose of girly detail with this skirt’s asymmetric ruffle. Wear it in warm weather with a simple white tee shirt and flat sandals; rev it up for work this fall with a shrunken cashmere mockneck and block-heel shoes.
2. H&M Pleated Tulle Skirt
Ruffles get an airy, delicate treatment on this thigh-skimming skirt. Go for full rock ‘n’ romance and pair it with a high-necked, Victorian inspired lace top and chunky leather ankle boots for a weekend look that’s inspired and inspiring.
3. & Other Stories Frill Skirt
Short, colorful and fun, try this with a tailored, short sleeve button down for brunch and over a sleek scoopneck bodysuit for date night dinners.

Done in a juicy, bright melon color, consider this the ultimate summer piece. With a short-sleeve summer-weight cashmere tee and simple gold jewelry, this skirt can seamlessly go from office casual Friday to harbor-side drinks.
5. Club Monaco MDS Ruffle Skirt
Add a little romance to your summer with Club Monaco’s ruffled, calf-grazing skirt. In classic white linen, it’s a piece you’ll reach for summer after summer.
