I love Summer. The warmth, the everyday sunshine, but most of all, I love Summer trends. They are usually bold and bright, with a strong and positive spirit. 

Skirts are a must for Summer and there are 4 types that you should take a look at and consider for your wardrobe: the peplum skirt, the maxi skirt, the tulle skirt and the very popular pencil skirt. They can be mixed and matched with various pieces to become more wearable for this season and all year round.

The Peplum skirt is dubbed to be “the most popular” fashion trend. Consisting in an elongated hem over the skirt, this style has conquered the world of fashion, appearing in numerous collections and making the best looks in Hollywood. This classic, flattering trend from the past is definitely here to stay.

The maxi skirt is definitely a Summer must, mostly worn in an effortless way and inspired by the Bohemian style. It's an amazing trend that can be played down and simple or it can make a bold statement.

The tulle skirt has moved from the runway to the streets, as many designers such as Balmain or Lanvin made the babydoll inspired skirt a must. This charming and fresh piece makes a true statement and can be worn in a girly, feminine look or a chic, sophisticated style.

Lastly, the Pencil skirt, a trend that has been reborn. Back in the time of Marilyn Monroe and Lauren Bacall, the pencil skirt was seen as a classy and elegant piece with a sexy approach. This is definitely a Bombshell trend that not only shows off your curves, but gives you a sense of simplicity and elegance. You don’t need to do much to make this trend fashionable.

Skirts are seen as a “Summer thing”, but we should really rethink this idea. Fashion shows and celebrities put it on the spotlight all year long, so why not make it a must for all seasons? Just choose your favorite style.

    I love and own just about all types of skirts... pencils, tulle; full midis and half minis. However, my favorite for the summer is this feminine and airy little number... http://blingaholic88.com/?p=2795 xo, Melody
