Summer is approaching and we Britons can finally embrace the few days of the year when the sun is out and it feels...can I say hot? Well, it’s certainly warmer than the dreaded winter months when the trend is layers, layers and more layers because, let’s face it, without a few extra layers of fleece/flab we will perish. But now as the breeze gets warmer we can reach for skimpier clothing, hallelujah!
The only thing which gets a little trickier with increasing temperature is knowing how to dress appropriately in the workplace. Nobody wants to be the Bridget Jones of the office wearing a mini skirt and sheer blouse in a bid to prevent the perspiration. Well look no further as there is an office-appropriate alternative that is not only flattering but also so on trend: introducing culottes. Time to get those ankles out.
The only way I can think to describe SS15’s hottest new trend is as the offspring of a midi skirt and a pair of shorts. Culottes are incredibly stylish and can be a fun, summery alternative to the suit trouser and shirt combo. With a high waist and wide leg they are cool and create the illusion of a tiny waist so are flattering to all shapes and sizes, especially if you are a little on the short or wider side. Give workwear an edge with structured shorts in bonded fabrics, cool colours and statement prints.
I leave you with a list of 3 do’s and 3 don’ts to take into account when wearing a pair of these chic, skorts.
Keep in touch monthly (or even more frequently with us*).
