Crush on skirts.

Sheer (see my look here). Summer is all about showing off some skin and putting these tanned legs in the center of attention. But if you prefer to still leave something to the imagination, then I'm sure you would go for sheer. Sheer skirts are both covering and revealing at the same time and they make a perfect balance between saucy and sophisticated. Plus, they are incredibly breezy and beautiful. My advice? Skirts with sheer hemlines, as they provide the length of a midi or maxi with the coverage of a shorter skirt.

Tulle (my look here). Thank you, Carrie Bradshaw. If it weren't for you, we'd probably think pastel tulle skirts are not fashionably acceptable after the age of six. We'd probably never be able to feel so feminine and girly while wearing them. And incredibly chic if pairing them with some killer heels and a leather jacket.

Mesh (I wore it here). What is mesh exactly? A very very trendy, athletic inspired material made of network of wire. Truth to be told, it did have a bad reputation when it first appeared in the 80's, but this season it's cool and urban and transforms any outfit to off-duty chic in a second. So how to wear a mesh skirt? Mesh looks best in white and black and works great paired with massive accessories. Pair the skirt with sneakers for a total sporty luxe or go for high heels for the ultimate athletic sophistication.

Pencil (see how I wore it here). If you search for a feminine, chic and elegant skirt then look no further, because pencil skirts flatter every frame and shape. And rest assured that, besides being an officewear staple, they became an essential piece of streetwear too. Go for bold printed skirts if you want to add an illusion of curves, or stick to solid color or monochromes with strategically placed panels if you prefer to keep the silhouette slim.

Stripes (see my look here). Let's take a moment to appreciate the invention of black and white stripes. Sometimes thin and sometimes thick, but always horizontal - they are a print that will always make you stand out in a crowd, but in a good, effortless and chic way. And my perfect choice for the summer? Striped skater skirts, because they make an illusion of extra height, they elongate your legs and accentuate the waist.

As you can see from my recent looks, I have been loving many of trendy summer skirts but maybe
  the midi length ones just a little bit more. And what style (or styles) are you going for this summer?
