If you’re a skater or know someone who’s a skater, you’ve no doubt seen this: a black skater skirt! Skaters everywhere are wearing them, and they are a great addition to a skater’s wardrobe. But, what kind of style should you choose when you’re buying a skirt for yourself?

First of all, you need to think about colour and cut. While it might seem obvious, it’s actually a lot harder to get a casual look with a black skater skirt than with any other kind of top.

See, black leather pumps and skirts are great, but they don’t mix well together! And yet, that’s what so many skaters do – they mix and match clothing, hoping to create a look that looks good with everything. So, how do you create a stylish look that looks good with your own clothes, without it being too obvious? Here are some fashion ideas that work well.

A classic skater skirt looks good with almost anything and is especially flattering on a wide variety of figures. So, if you have a small body, you can wear a mini-skirt with a mini-thong pair of cropped pants.


For tall women, a long black skater skirt can look great with a mini-dress. You can also wear a short black skater skirt with leggings underneath if you’d prefer to keep things subtle. For those who prefer to keep things minimal, a knee-length skirt with pleats is a great choice.

Skirts and jeans aren’t the only items of casual clothing that look good together. One of the most popular fashion trends right now is to combine a brightly coloured blouse with a brightly coloured piece of clothing, such as a black skater skirt.

This trend is great for women who want to wear a bold colour yet still keep it under control. For example, a red blouse paired with black boots could be a great fashion statement!

This isn’t the only great fashion idea for mixing clothing with accessories. One of the city’s hottest trends is to wear an oversized jacket with a mini black skater skirt and shoes. This outfit is a great combination for casual and formal occasions because the oversized jacket can be paired with almost anything, including shorts or even a skirt.

It works great with animal print tops and a variety of different prints of pants. This outfit is so trendy that it’s going to be hard to come up with a bad one if you’re going to try this outfit!

Black leggings are also popular when it comes to wearing a black skater skirt and jeans. These leggings offer a sleek, simple way to mix and match with your ensemble. Just like the classic jacket, they work great for both formal and casual occasions.

However, these leggings’ real advantage is that they offer a streamlined, sleeker look that makes you look stylish while making you feel great. Another benefit to using these is that they are much more comfortable than thick-chic leggings, which are quite fitting and can make you feel uncomfortable in them for long periods of time.

They are also easy to wear, unlike thick-chic leggings, and you won’t have to worry about them showing up whenever you reach for a smoothie in the morning!

As far as accessories go, a belt and some boots are always welcome. You can wear a black skater skirt with a pair of simple black pumps or go with a more dressy version and wear some flats, a leather jacket, and a blazer. You can also use these to add height to your legs, especially if you are taller than most of the people walking around in your city.

A belt can be used to help you get into those perfect skaters, as it helps to distribute your weight more evenly. And, if you aren’t sure whether or not your belt is long enough, a professional can usually tell you what length you need for a particular outfit.

One other really versatile option when wearing black skater skirts is a longer version known as an a-line. An a-line gives you an elongated torso that can look more youthful and trim on top.

Because the skirt extends above the hips, you can easily wear boot-cut pants and jackets to draw attention down.

The overall effect looks very elegant, and you can wear this style with almost any top to create the illusion of a taller look!

Black skater skirts look great when worn with a wide belt and black boots, as they can help highlight your midriff, which is a favourite among skaters.
