Give Your Jeans A Rest This Summer And Try Something Different

Skirts

Summer is the perfect season and reason to give your jeans a well earned break and your legs the ‘exposure’ they deserve. As Stylists we often hear, “skirts don’t suit me” or “matching a skirt and top is tricky”!. We get that skirts come in different styles which can take a full time job (being s Stylist) to figure out which style best suits you but we promise it’s well worth the effort. The trick is, find a style which best suits your body shape and stick with it! For example, an hour glass figure is best suited to pencil skirts and pear shape is best suited to hip-skimming styles or A-line.

Our advice to finding your ideal skirt shape would be on your next shopping trip, grab a few extra styles, shapes and lengths to try, have an open mind to see if any work, chances are you will definitely learn something new. It’s a confidence booster to learn what your body shape and what suits YOU!

For some skirt style inspiration take a look at the options below:

Trousers

Trousers are a great alternative to jeans however the perfect pair are not always the easiest to find. Whether work trousers or a summer alternative our advice is to be prepared to try a few pairs before you find ‘the one’. Dedicate a shopping trip to finding them so you can focus on this some what tiresome but rewarding task.

Here’s some of our favourite summer pieces, in stores now.

Dresses

I don’t know about you, but here at Stylists and Shoppers we live for wearing dresses in the summer! We wear them with wedges, heels, sandals and the now formally accepted, white trainers. Dresses are easy to wear with them being 1 piece rather than separates which have to be styled into an outfit. We love that dresses have become day wear and not just for special occasions - brands like Topshop have increased their offering over the past couple of years and seen certain styles sell out in weeks.
