There are certainly going to be a few new skirt shapes on the shop floor… And the good news is, you can find the right fit for your shape!
Our fashion team shows you how to slip on something different and instantly update your summer separates.
Skirts dos and don’ts
Do try the new skirt shapes:
Full or A-line? What might seem awkward at first will soon be your new season superhero.
Do wear the undies that work best:
Aim for a totally smooth finish that makes you feel confident.
Do try new trends:
Reinvent your workwear with a sleek leather pencil or a pop of print.
Do try out a higher waistline:
Super chic, it will show off your shape… and remember it will make those legs look longer.
Don’t wear something you can’t walk in:
Make sure you can always pull off your best moves.
Do slip on the right shoes:
Fashion’s going foot first for flats, but who doesn’t love that pick-me-up from a heel?
Don’t be afraid of a maxi:
Dress it down for a day with slouchy sweatshirt or glam it up with a little glitz for after-dark.
Don’t shy away from shorter styles:
If you know you’ve got it, then flaunt it. Just keep it chic and sophisticated – or add tights.
Don’t age yourself instantly:
Nude tights are the ultimate fashion no-no. If you’re craving a bit of cover, opt for sheer blacks.
Don’t pop on the pleats if you’re trying to hide those hips:
Stick to sleeker styles that’ll slim down your silhouette.
