Are you a skirt person? Or do you live in your jeans and pants? Take a look at these summer skirt outfits below. They’re guaranteed to convert even the most ardent jeans wearer!

The beauty of a summer skirt is that it’s a cooler way of dressing rather than wearing jeans. Plus, you can wear your skirt with anything – from a t-shirt and sneakers if you prefer a more casual look to heeled sandals and a blouse for a dressier approach.

In this article, you’ll find some of my own favorite summer skirts for women as well as plenty of inspiration from other stylish 40+ women.
