Happy International Skirt Day Fashionistas! There is no better way to celebrate than to talk about current trends in skirts.

I was never a girly girl and I feel sorry for my Mum now as I believe that every woman feels super excited when she learns that she’s going to have a baby girl. They already visualise their daughters wearing super cute dresses and skirts… but this never happened to my Mum. I was an absolute tomboy and there was no way of forcing/convincing me to wear anything different than shorts, trousers or leggings. In my own defence, I have to say that I just have male cousins I grew up with and it was very practical, can you imagine climbing a tree or playing football in a skirt? However, something changed in my early 20s and suddenly I started buying more and more dresses and skirts and now I basically live in them. I know, a bit too late for my Mum to enjoy it but better late than never! If you always felt reluctant to wearing skirts, it’s time to change it! Here’s Fashionista’s guide to AW17 trends:

Patent leather / vinyl skirt. Looks best in mini length and styled with chunky knit or simple turtleneck.

Checked / plaid / tartan print skirt. Length and style doesn’t matter. It may be mini, midi or maxi skirt. Pencil, a-line, wrap or frill, this print looks fab in all of them and is super versatile. For best results, style it with same print blazer!

Metallic pleated midi skirt. Might be a bit overwhelming for everyday outfits, however when styled with knits or just plain simple top, it becomes a perfect casual piece. For a wow factor before Christmas celebrations, style it with metallic blazer or studded biker, it’s time to shine!
