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.Textures and new fabrics are a great way to embrace this season's trends without deviating too far away from your usual options, or 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!
