Stylish Wrap Skirt Outfits. The wrap skirt was first introduced in the late 1960s when it became popular among the ladies. The trend continued until the early 1970s. It has since made a comeback and today is once again in vogue.
In its heyday, wrap skirts were mostly ankle-length or longer. Today, we see wrap skirts of all different shapes, styles, and lengths. You can also make a wrap skirt at home since it is so easy to make. This way, it will be exactly what you want since you will have designed it!
A wrap skirt is worn around the waist and secured through a belt or by tying. The best thing about wrap skirts is that they don’t just look attractive but they are also a comfy fit. Usually, they can be adjusted on the different waist and hip sizes. Back in the 1900’s, they were made of batiste, a soft cotton fabric. These days, they are made of various materials, even denim. If you don’t already have a wrap skirt in your closet, it’s about time you include it.
Here are 30 ways you can stylishly wear a wrap skirt!
What To Wear With A Wrap Skirt?
Here are some styling tips to start with:
- Get a wrap skirt that has some eye-catchy detailing. Like a buckle or strings.
- Go for the mix and match look. A multicolored and beautifully patterned design is sure to make you look like a fashionista.
- Choose the appropriate fabric that isn’t just comfy to wear but falls well over your figure.
- For summer, you can choose to wear a mini wrap skirt or a long one with a slit.
- A wrap skirt attracts attention to your legs. Be sure to sport top-end footwear.

With a wrap skirt, you usually get some extra detailing around the cinched part of the waist. Some skirts like the one pictured are tied. With fun detailing like that, you want to take full advantage and make sure you show it off. For that reason, we recommend a body-hugging top that you can tuck into your skirt. This lets the skirt take center-stage and doesn’t overwhelm your figure with excess fabric.
For this outfit, which is great for summer beach days and pool parties, accessorize with brown and straw-based pieces like a little woven purse and sandals. Go for a chunky pendant necklace and oversized sunglasses to tie the look together.
