Fab Friday: Summer Trends

Friday, 24 June 2011
This week's Fab Friday will feature a current love of mine; loose comfy skirts. Soft, flowing fabrics are always a winner in the summer, it also adds a feminine touch to your outfit.
It's all about air and comfort when the temperature rises, which apparently will happen this weekend (predicted to be 30C in London!).

The pleated skirt is currently having their moment, it adds a touch of vintage glamour to any outfit. Pleats were all over the SS11 catwalks at ChloƩ, but it looks like it's a trend here to stay. For summer it's all about colour and floral, mix your colours and have fun.

The midi skirt has also become a hit this season, chose one that is below the knee but above the ankles to be bang on trend. I picked up this cute skirt last week...

To keep everything in proportions, all I need is to add a simple top and heels!

I love - LOVE these skirts, but really doubt I'd pull them off! My hips seem to be so big they flatten all pleats, oops! xx
