Short, tight and full of Lycra is always one way to go…but mini circle skirts are undeniably on the rise, literally and figuratively. Earlier this year, the longer version (sometimes referred to as a dirndl skirt) was being taken up by our favorite style-setters. Rather than tossing the idea out with the rest of their winter gear, they’ve merely started wearing shorter versions. And we’ll bet that come fall the same skirts will be sported over tights and a variety of boots. Consider this next on your would-be shopping list for seasonless versatility.
Texture Has It
If you're going to go monochromatic, why not try one with a touch of texture? And can't you just see this with a pair of ankle high lace-ups or wedge sneaks? I can.

Whether you wear the real thing or not, this vegan-friendly "leather" circle skirt is darling, on-trend and adds the perfect edgy, yet feminine touch to any of your lace or chiffon tops.
$59 at Urban Outfitters.
This little number is asking to be worn with white tops, sweaters, blazers and jackets. Of course it would look adorable with any one of your favorite denim or chambray tops too. Shoes? Ballet flats or brogues, for sure.
$169 at My Theresa.
The mirrored graphic look has been all over the place thanks to young designers using their Macs to design our newest favorite textiles. At half-off, you might want to finally get in on the goods. The dark colors are perfect for seasonal transitioning, too.
$135 at Shopbop.
Anything with a touch of metallic gold adds an elevated element to your overall look. So don't be surprised if you get a few (envious) looks when you're hitting the town in this!

Pockets should be in every dress and every skirt. Sadly, they're not and we have to band together to point out the special frocks that have them, like this green circle skirt from Banana Republic.
$69.99 at Banana Republic.
As soon as I saw this I thought about a gorgeous pic of the mountains or the waves. Channel some west coast love in this!
$34.99 at ModCloth.
Think about it: plaid shirts have made a huge comeback since the 90s. It stands to reason plaid will make its way into other garments as well. Love it as a skirt. Period.
$375 at Nordstrom.
So many florals these days, so little time, right? While most prints are focusing on photorealistic detail this sweet lace number is harkening back to a simpler time, when a simple design held sway. Oh, and the color isn't bad either, a major up-and-comer for fall.
$80 at Nordstrom.
There's actually a photo on American Apparel's site of a ballerina twirling in this skirt. Don't we all have the ballerina fantasy? Or is it just me? I've said enough, but keep this in mind when you're in a twirling sort of mood.
$58 at American Apparel.
