Whew, boy! That little groundhog was right – spring is certainly upon us. In South Texas, it feels dang near like full-on summer, and we’re about ready to ditch our britches in favor of something a little easier and breezier. Yep, it’s skirt season, gals!

“Skirts have been heavy in focus the last few seasons on the runway and we're starting to see them trickle down to everyday consumers,” explained DDR Designer Claire Johanson. “We're seeing more midi-lengths – perfect for showing off your boots – and shorter versions.”

If you’re looking to step up your skirt game this spring/summer, here are a few styles to stock up on:

The adventurer aesthetic is popping up everywhere, and you could say we’re at the “crossroads” (see what we did there?) of utilitarian and girly-glam with the Crossroads Skirt, taking a chic southwestern approach to the cool cargo mini. Going bold with the color and blinging it out ever-so-slightly keeps it fresh and fun.


We started diving into this look in the last collection with the Pecos Blanket Skort, which featured an amazing open-front maxi skirt displaying the built-in shorts – comfort, ease of wear, and fabulous movement. Currently, we’re all “wrapped” up in the Monument Pass maxi, which has all the appeal of a woven blanket wrap skirt, but with the comfy convenience of an elastic waistband.


Bust out your vintage velvets and/or clear the way for a few new ones in your closet, because this classic style is back in a big way! (To be fair, we’re not totally sure it ever went anywhere…) The full-length, gathered tiers, and stand-out statement hues of the Pueblo Antiquity skirts are giving us all kinds of cowgirl nostalgia – in a welcome new way.


It’s not a mini, it’s not a maxi, and it’s got more volume than a pencil midi. This fun, feminine silhouette is a flowy knee-length skirt that’s flattering and forgiving, and it’s going to be showing up strong this spring and summer. “The Monument Valley Skirt is a play on the classic circle skirt and broom skirt we often see,” said Claire. “We made a version that plays with a much shorter hemline and big pockets for all your goodies.” Our iteration is in this season’s signature print, and it’s easy to wear and pair with anything from the matching Monument Valley Top or a classic chambray workshirt, finished with a statement belt and a cool pair of cowboy boots.
