The weather is warming up, and that always means two things for me: reading outside, and spending too much time online looking for cool summer bookish skirts to break me out of my winter doldrums.
This year is no exception; I’ve stayed up too late too many nights in a row looking for book themed skirts on Etsy and Pinterest, and good lord, there are so many book-themed skirts available.
And can I just say, bless the makers who are designing and printing their own fabrics? So many book prints.
I know we’ve featured literary and bookish styles before, so, in an attempt to keep this post fresh and new, here are some of the most recent creations in literary skirting.
This miniskirt made from a gorgeous fabric designed by the seamstress herself.
This full circle skirt for all your 1950s vintage, twirly needs.
This Edgar Allen Poe A-Line, complete with skulls and ravens.
This skater skirt made up of all the Harry Potter book covers by PicknMix.
Actually, Potterheads should just check out PicknMix’s Etsy store. There are a lot of Harry Potter-themed skirts there, including this next one, which is entirely made up of wizarding books.
Speaking of bookish skirt stores you should probably just go to, have you been to RoobyLane’s Etsy shop? It’s filled with vintage-inspired skirts, dresses, and accessories with bookish themes. There’s a lot there, but this is my favorite.
Another Etsy shop with lots of bookish designs? NerdAlertCreations, which has a ton of bookish skirts, including skirts covered in text and book covers. I struggled to find a favorite to spotlight here and eventually settled on this Shakespeare skirt, the perfect thing to wear to a Shakespeare production in the park on a warm night.
Moving on, check out this Hobbit book cover skirt. The only thing that would make this skirt more perfect? Pocketses.
Okay, one more Hobbit-related skirt. Bear with me here because KayPopArt’s Hobbit Hole skirt is just so perfect — it features the art of Kaytlyne Dewald of KayPopArt (the whole shop features her original art) along with the text of the book — and it’s gorgeous.
Every bookstore needs a cat, and the same is true of a list of bookish skirts. This pencil skirt is pretty much everything, and I want one in every color.
Speaking of libraries, here is so many nerds’ ideal library, in skirt form. Belle’s library (the Beast’s library, really) from the original film. Best part? You can order it with pockets.
