3 Summer Skirts to Add to your Capsule Wardrobe

It’s time to bare your legs for summer with the latest from the skirt collections and there are 3 that you need to be in the know.

The Denim Skirt

Denim is one of this year’s biggest trends. We’ve seen the flared jeans and the dresses and now it’s time for the skirt. And the best options are either A-line or a straight button up pencil. I’ve chosen the second option to feature here but if you are pear shaped go for the A-line.

Wear it for daytime with it’s perfect partners the breton stripe top and trainers or dress it up for a night out with heels and a lace top.

The Floral Midi

Midi skirts are also big this year, add florals and you will be bang up to date. They work with flat sandals and wedges for a casual summer day or add a pair of smart shoes and a jacket for a wedding or summer occasion.

The Lace Pencil Skirt

In almost any colour you can imagine and at every price point the lace skirt does work during the day, especially if it’s in a pastel shade. But I’ve shown it here for evening kept very simple with a satin top and sparkly necklace, just add a jacket and hat for Ascot and weddings.

    Hi Maria, I absolutely love the navy lace skirt, it has gone straight to the top of my wish list. Can you let me know where the Navy shoes are from as my link to them isn’t working. Ps I’m loving the new monthly magazine, each month they are full of inspiration & super outfits for all occasions .. Keep up the good work Maria… Thanks Debbie.
