Skirting the Issue with guest blogger Carly Yackimec

One of the things I love most about summer fashion this season is the amazing variety of skirts available. From barely there minis to long flowing maxis and every length in between, there is something to make every fashion savvy girl fall in love. This is a great time to start experimenting with your style and embrace some of the major trends this season. Take advantage of the wide array of skirts available and learn what works for you and what doesn’t. Some great looks to try on this season are:
Colour Blocking – Loud and proud colour combos that show off your confident side. Start by selecting a boldly coloured skirt and pair it with something unexpected. A burnt orange maxi with a soft pink top would definitely make a statement.
Ladylike – Use Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor circa the 1950’s as your inspiration.  Think full skirts that fall just below the knee paired with a silk blouse that has a bow around the collar. The end result should be sophisticated and classically elegant.

Romantic – Linen, cotton, satin and lace are the backbone of this trend. Colours should be washed out and faded to complete this delicate look. Master this trend by selecting a flowing and loosely cut skirt and top it with a simple blouse. This skirt and blouse by Le Fou from Aritzia have a very romantic feel.

Preppy – Year after year the preppy look is recreated. This season stripes, polka dots and nautical details rule. Your approach should be simple. Select a modest patterned skirt and add a crisp white top.
When shopping for a new summer wardrobe, it is important to think about the various trends and decide which ones will compliment your figure. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Try on a variety of different skirt styles and lengths to learn what makes you look exquisite. Remember to mix and match these different looks to make them uniquely your own.
