For most the maxi skirt is an item associated with summer but for me it’s a staple in my wardrobe all year round! In fact I find that as the weather gets colder my hemline (like the birds) goes steadily further south! Here are some ideas on how you can rock the maxi skirt throughout the colder months!
One misconception surrounding maxi-skirts is that they can only be dressed up. Try teaming with a slouchy jumper and some comfy biker boots – you’ll have a casual outfit which wouldn’t look out of place in an Olsen twin’s wardrobe!
Black pleated maxi skirt £16.00, biker boots £10.00, F&F striped jumper £9.00
Embrace the vintage look of this great pleated maxi and go boho! Recapture the glamour of the Seventies with this gorgeous faux fur gilet à la Olivia Palermo! I just love this floppy wide brimmed hat which adds an extra dose of charm and can be reused in the summer months. Remember that boho chic is synonymous with tons of accessories so load on bangles to finish the look!

Who says work wear has to be boring? Coloured tailoring is all the rage this season so why not brighten up your office with a pop of colour in the form of this loose structured jacket! Pair with some cute Mary-Jane shoes – perfect for busy ladies and what better way to stay comfy and stylish? Finally why not accessorise with a skinny waist belt for a look that really means business!

I hope this has inspired you to invest in something that will fare you well all year round!
What will you be wearing with yours with?
I’m so excited about our latest release of new season arrivals packed with bright colours and flattering silhouettes! With so many stunning items to choose from, I’ve had a hard time pinning down my favourites but here goes…
1. I’m branching out from blue and buying into coloured denim! For the easiest way to inject a bit of colour into your daytime look team with neutrals and flats. I will be wearing these gorgeous plum coloured jeans with a black blazer, white tank top and platform heels for an attention-grabbing evening look!
F&F coloured skinny jeans £16.00
2. It’s maxi mental – everyone’s favourite skirt shape shows no sign of slowing for SS12! The perfect capsule collection piece-wear it with slouchy knits now and then switch to a basic tee when the warmer weather comes.
F&F Pleated Maxi Skirt £16.00
3. AW11 was the season of the pencil skirt and I’m sure you were all as thrilled as I was when I heard it was going to be big news for Spring Summer as well. Get ahead of the fashion crowd and buy them in bright colours for the forthcoming season. I adore this striped one- what a statement piece!
F&F striped ponte pencil skirt £18.00
4. There is no reason why you can’t look as good at work as you do at play! Pussybow blouses are perfect for adding a touch of femininity to your office wear as well as smartening up jeans at the weekend. This one is so pretty and I can imagine will be a part of my wardrobe for years to come.

That’s enough about me! What’s on you’re wishlist?
