The 'Bedsheet Skirt' Is The Perfect Flowy Transition Piece From Summer To Fall

Summer is known for its hot weather and breezy fashion. When you think of summer fashion, you inevitably come up with summer dresses, spaghetti straps, short shorts, lots of linen — oh, and all of those flowing maxi skirts. We can bring some of these summer staples into fall with a bit of help from stylish layers. Transition outfits allow us to mesh our summer obsessions with fall styles as the seasons blend into each other. Bedsheet skirts layered under fall pieces, for instance, are the newest iteration of this two-season blend, and we're already obsessed.


But what are bedsheet skirts, exactly? They're those long, flowy white skirts you've been seeing everywhere and loving — the ones you throw on during the summer for your beach days or errand runs. They're as comfy as your bedsheets, hence the name. Furthermore, they're the ideal transition piece when the weather begins to take on that breezy, crispy fall feel.

Here are our best tips for how to get away with wearing your favorite bedsheet skirts in between seasons. Heads up, you'll need to pull out your knits and leathers. 

Biker chick meets prairie chic

One way to easily transform any outfit from summery to fall-ready is to add some leather to the mix. Leather, after all, is decidedly not a summer material. You've been warned, do not make the mistake of wearing leather on a hot day. For fall, though, wearing leather is just fine.


Some leather shoes — flats or chunky boots, for instance — accompanied with a leather bag are all you need to make your outfit fall-appropriate. That said, we always love the look of a bulky leather jacket to clash with the delicate feel of a flowing skirt.

Cinched and comfy

Tiered maxi skirts that can be cinched and customized in length have been popular for quite some time. They can be worn at any length, and they also look spectacular at full length, essentially becoming a statement piece all on their own. All you need to style one for the fall are minimalistic, cool girl accessories.


Pairing your bedsheet skirt with all-black pieces will not only let the skirt shine but also make you look put together (at minimum effort and maximum comfort). Black sunnies with dark lenses can help you seamlessly complete the look.

Girly or sporty: why choose?

Bedsheet skirts don't need to stick to a strictly "girly" dress code. In fact, the more you juxtapose the femininity of a bedsheet skirt with scruffy or "manly" elements, the more you'll be able to let it shine. Think of our leathery advice above.


Another way to do this is to throw a bulky bomber jacket over your skirt and finish the outfit with trendy sneakers. If you want more femininity to peek through these elements, add a top that matches the skirt's vibe — some frills and bows never hurt anyone.

Loose and lengthy

We tend to look at flowing, oversized pieces as shapeless and unflattering. We often pair them with tight blouses or tank tops to bring back some shape and avoid drowning in fabric, but is this the only way to wear loose clothing? No, it's not. Feel free to pair your bedsheet skirt with other baggy pieces. It's all about comfort with this trend — like bringing the coziness of your bed anywhere you go.


Wear your maxi skirt with a loose long-sleeve top and matching sneakers for a comfy yet stylish take on bedsheet skirts.

Colorful knits

Nothing solidifies the coming of fall like pulling out all of your knits from the depths of your closet. The excitement to wear them again, year after year, is always palpable. Sweaters are the summer-to-fall transition staple and one that couldn't be missing from this list. They'll soon become your favorite pieces to wear over maxi skirts.


In order to make your bedsheet skirt as fall-ready as possible, pair it with a matching top and a staple knit. We love the look of colorful sweater vests, specifically for layering with skirts and dresses.
