Now that it’s officially spring, it’s really time to start thinking about your spring wardrobe. Do you have a specific color or look that you want to make a wardrobe mainstay? What trends are you interested in trying? One spring trend I would like to explore is the asymmetrical skirts trend for women over 50.
Spring Fashion Trends 2023
I must say that as much as I’m excited about the warmer weather, spring and summer have always been a personal challenge of mine. I tend to stick with basic tees with jeans or lightweight pants and the occasional sun dress. What I don’t wear a lot of is skirts.
The Asymmetrical Skirts Trend
However, this spring, I may dabble in the seasonal trend of asymmetrical skirts. I really like the different styles they offer. There is an array of colors, styles and lengths to choose from, making it perfect for women over 50 to find a style the suits them.

It would be really easy to incorporate this trend into your current spring wardrobe plan. Let’s take a look at some options.
Asymmetrical Slip Skirts
This is my favorite iteration of the asymmetrical skirt. I like the simplicity and sleek lines that this style offers and it gives you an option to pair with mostly anything. This variation doesn’t have to be a showstopper piece but can pair nicely with a showier top or special shoe, if you choose.
Brown is not always my color of choice, but I actually really covet this slip skirt by Anthropologie. I also love the way they styled it in the ad. It’s a great idea to help you get started, if styling a skirt like this is a challenge for you. You can also keep it neutral with this satin midi skirt in a neutral olive tone. Call me boring, but I think this would look really polished with a silky white top and a pair of crisp white sneakers.
Floral Asymmetrical Skirts
You can’t do springtime without a floral, so I want to make sure to include some options for everyone who can’t wait to pull out their floral prints when the warm weather arrives. This blue and green floral asymmetrical skirt is airy and comfortable, and it’s perfect for work and play.
I envision this skirt being paired with a sunshine yellow, gauzy sweater and a pair of slide sandals. I also found this extremely budget friendly option with a bold black and white floral pattern. This one is great if you have a wedding or special event to attend.
Mini Asymmetrical Skirts
This last option may not be for everyone, however if styled correctly, can work well for women over 50. The mini skirt has made a comeback this season. A short asymmetrical skirt can be worn as an option to shorts.
I like the idea of this tan skirt paired with a relaxed fit tee and topped with an oversized, open button front shirt. Finish it off with a pair of athletic sneakers and you have a comfortable outfit you can wear while out on your weekend adventures. With this styling option you aren’t showing any other skin besides your legs, and the relaxed fit of the other pieces keep it casual and not sexy.
You can also try this pink assymetric skirt from Zara if you want something less casual. It has has a matching jacket, so you can pair it together and make a work-appropriate suit or wear them separately. This suit will provide you with multiple outfit options for your spring wardrobe.
Asymmetrical Skirt Style Tips
- Keep your shoes simple. I think to avoid over-styling this trend, it’s best to stick with shoes that are simple and classic. Basic flats, slide sandals, crisp sneakers or classic pumps look best. Super-bright, chunky sneakers, combat boots or loafers with too many details can overwhelm this trend, especially if you are wearing an asymmetrical skirt that has a pattern, print or texture.
- Don’t invest too much. As much as I like this trend, I don’t think it can be considered a long-term one. I’ve seen this trend come and go and I don’t think it has consistent longevity. I’d find some affordable options and incorporate those into your spring closet. If this trend is still around for next year, then great! However, I wouldn’t be surprised if this one doesn’t make into the rotation for 2024; so don’t break the bank when you are looking for options.
- Find inspiration from your favorite retailers. Kind of like the brown slip skirt above that was really thoughtfully styled on the Banana Republic website, it’s a great idea to look to retail websites, runways, and your favorite public figures to get some ideas on how to style this trend. Use the resources out there. I’ve gotten so many great ideas from stumbling on them on various websites. One of my favorites for styling is Net-a-Porter.
