SKIRT & TOP
A gorgeous feminine alternative to shorts is a skirt and a nice top! Especially if you don’t like showing your legs, a midi skirt is the perfect skirt for summer. Coming in a variety of different fabrics, prints, patterns and cuts, a skirt can be a cool option to wear in really hot weather or easy to layer up on cooler days. Match a beautiful printed skirt with a racer-style top and sandals or look just as lovely with a pleated skirt which does seem to be making a bit of a comeback again. A plain cami top is cool and comfortable to wear with a midi skirt in a nice print or you could try a wider strap vest top if you need to wear a bra. If you like some arm coverage, a t-shirt is a nice option either a v-neck or a round neck. Another nice way to pair a skirt is with a shirt, a basic white shirt in linen, or a lightweight fabric that’s cool to wear. Finish off with some gorgeous sandals or trainers, a pair of sunglasses and a gorgeous bag and you’re good to go!
Jumpsuits can be a really nice alternative to wearing shorts. Style them with trainers, wedges or flat sandals for a really summery look.
