Brands such as Chloé, Michael Kors, Christian Dior, Max Mara, Celine and others have made suits with skirts the key element of their new collections.

Women’s skirt suits: the main trends of 2021

A suit with a skirt has long been considered a symbol of elegance, femininity and impeccable taste. They were worn by business women and first ladies who followed the official dress code. In 2021, stylish suits with a pencil skirt, with a straight, pleated or short skirt are gradually moving from business to casual wardrobe. As we can see, in modern fashion, things are changing rapidly.
