Laid back, casual skirts can come in a variety of styles ranging from classic to trendy, with BoHo styles particularly popular for summer and winter resort wear. Skirts in the winter months are more popular with younger fashionistas who sometimes prefer shorter and more body conscious styles, often layered over tights and leggings. Meanwhile, longer styles can be worn with boots.

Skirts are a popular alternative to shorts and capris in hotter climates, beach vacations, and summer weather.  Easy to pull on over swimwear during Spring Break vacations and pool breaks, casual plus-size skirts come in a variety of lengths and styles.  Knits, twills, and denim are especially popular in this skirt type.  Favored by all age groups styles range from classic to trendy.  Some activewear styles including tennis skirts and skorts make good on-the-go casual skirts, as well.

Although chaffing in hot weather is a common "big girl" problem, skirts are usually a cooler and more comfortable alternative to pants and jeans with long flowing styles coming to the fore. Lightweight biker shorts and leggings are sometimes layered underneath.

A growing extended size collection on-line for Target is well worth a stop for size S to 4X, with styles ranging from classic to the latest trends at low to moderate prices.
