When it comes to summer clothing, maxi skirts are a firm favourite of mine. By August I’m thoroughly fed up of shaving, tanning and generally looking after my legs, so anything that allows me to be lazy and cover up without cooking me from the inside (skinny jeans, I’m looking at you) is a Good Thing.
This skirt does what no maxi skirt has ever managed to do – it streamlines. Despite the excess of material, it’s cut in such a clever way that it skims over the ol’ childbearers and is insanely flattering on the lower half.

I love the khaki print and the black taping detail, and it’s a pretty good length on me – I’m 5″7. I wore it with a simple black tee and bright accessories – perfect for throwing on without much thought. Annoyingly, the skirt’s not online yet but I’d keep an eye on the Whistles website or nip in to your local store. It retails at £85 and I’m sure it’ll sell out fast!
