straight skirts can be worn as both formal and casual attire, depending on the material and how you style it, you can dress it up or down.
Pairing straight skirt with a simple plain top seems to be one of the most easiest ways to style a straight skirt outfit, and it truly is. However, You can choose to throw on a blazer for a more formal look, and some heels can really tie the outfit together, but if you are not a heels type of girl, not to worry, you will still look lovely with some flats.
