A friend in the fashion industry recently told me skirts are the worst selling items of clothing.  I doubt that will be the case this year. Skirts have never been so popular – maxi, mini and midis skirts – anything goes this summer.

For the more sophisticated chic, opt for a ‘pleat treat’ – usually found in ‘mother-of-the-bride’ shops but now pleated skirts have been given a new lease of life.

Frequently seen on my style crush, Olivia Palermo – constantly mixing Topshop pleats (since they opened their NY flagship store) with designer pieces.

Skater skirts are also big – it is the ‘Dancing on Ice’ time of year after all.  Love this one [pictured left] from River Island.

Work the girly look and wear with stacked sandals and socks (think Fearne Cotton) or toughen the look with some platform ankle boots.

Alot of ‘Paperbag’ high waist skirts around too. Check out this one from Topshop that comes in an array of colours, plus denim.

Whilst the flowery / patterned maxi skirts are, once again, the old faithful summer staple – this year the maxi is louder and brighter than ever and you’d be ahead of the game wearing block colours. 

Love this Asos one.

Go flirt with your skirt girlfriends!
