The Tulip Skirt. A move on from the traditional pencil skirt, this will be your key skirt for the season if you aim to thrill with your fashion knowledge. Worn high on the waist, the ‘Tulip’ puffs out over the hips and tapers into a fitted shape finishing just above the knee, its fab for giving curves to a boyish frame and can accentuate the curves of the hourglass silhouette too.
ThisRiver Islandversion is in the fabric of the moment – metallic linen, although there will be tons of varieties across the high street, choose one in a heavy cotton for a more flattering line over the hips and bottom. It’s a great look for both the office and an evening out, wear yours with a fitted shirt, a roll neck top or simple fitted vest, some chunky beads and always with heels.
Although the least commercial of the looks I am going to show you, the mood of the Modernist trend perfectly, the place for all those who want the latest fashion trends in the UK, this store has built a profile for high fashion with an individual and contemporary approach.
Very much in the style of the pencil skirt shapes this garment moves out of classicism and into edgy. Make your existing pencil skirt work for you by teaming it with a fitted black shirt or top, a cropped black jacket and patent heels.
