Skirts are everywhere. Mini, midi, maxi, you name it. I love the tomato red trend, see an article I wrote for the Durham One on the colour here. The bright skirt looks best played down with a pale or white top half à la Jil Sander. Skirts are a great alternative to trousers for summer as they are easier to wear, lighter and more feminine. Wearing a bright colour on your bottom half is the easiest way to work the colour blocking trend if you're not sure if the colour suits you or not.
