With the very welcome sign of a little sun it's time to brave getting our legs out and seriously considering wearing summer skirts. There are tonnes of fabulous styles on the high street to suit all shapes and for all occasions. We particularly love the midi skirt, this season's style hero and a very wearable and super flattering style. Just make sure if you are more of a petite frame that you choose a skirt that cuts just above the knee to elongate your figure.
Looking to hide a tummy? Box pleating will do the trick perfectly, and thankfully there are so many summer skirts to choose from with clever pleated material that will easily hide a multitude of sins. If it's legs you're not confident about - what could be better than a midi skirt?! Just add a pair of leg-lengthening heels and they'll instantly look longer and slimmer.
Choose from plain or printed style skirts depending on your occasion. Large floral patterns are a big hit this season and were seen all over the SS15 catwalk. So add a bit of colour to your wardrobe and team with a simple tee to dress your look down or smarten it up with a white shirt and go to town with some statement jewellery. If prints aren't your thing then opt for a simple stripe or block colour skirt, the summer calls for some colour after all that drab winter grey and black!
We love skirts for summer and when we featured this amazing suedette skirt from M&S it promptly sold out, proof that suede really is the key fabric for the season, but you can still get in on the action by joining the waiting list for the real suede version here
And if suede is a bit far out for you have a browse through our gallery to find lots more brilliant options. Happy shopping!
