Miniskirts are in this season. As summer is all about minimalism, miniskirts very well fit into your summer wardrobe. Women are not complaining, as shorter styles mean that they can get away with some show of legs. Miniskirts for summer come in cool cottons. The blacks and purples have to make way for cool floral prints and interesting bold and boisterous colours that smell of sand, sun and lot of fun. Miniskirts can be styled according to the body shape. They come with layers, frills, fitted and flared styles to suit various shapes. Teaming them up with a white spaghetti top or a tube or tank top would create the ultimate cool summer dress.

Skirts with a lot of volume fan in that extra breeze into your body. The open and wide flare of these skirts very well make up for their long length. Long skirts for summer are for women who are modest and would like to play peek-a-boo with their body. They also suit women who are plus size and would want to avoid wearing miniskirts. Voluminous skirts are also good for women who are in the pear shape category as they can balance the body shape with the flare that flows down. Gypsy skirts, layered skirts, tiered skirts, umbrella or circle skirts are all voluminous enough to suit your summer wardrobe.
The length of voluminous skirts can be adjusted according to your height and weight. Short women can go for a medium length skirts with volume. This can be a skirt with flounces at the hem or a godet style skirt which adds volume at the hem. Women who are thin can go for layered skirts or skirts with frills to add to the volume. Shorter skirts with volume must be kept for tall and thin women who can carry them off well and who need some curves around their body.
A line Skirts

A lines skirts welcome all sorts of figures, thanks to their very accommodating silhouette. A lines are perfect for summer, especially this season where clear lines and styles are in fashion. A lines skirts in floral prints can pep up a summer night out. Tall women can go for A lines that are above the knee to show off their well tanned and toned legs.
For women who are more conservative A lines offer the comfort of a knee length or below the knee style with a perfect slit at the back to keep things sexy. Women who are heavier can try A lines in lighter materials and in vertical prints. As minimalism is the flavour of the season, you can play around with panels and small frills in A lines or keep them plain for a sleek and clean look. Plain A lines can go with cool cotton floral printed tops or vice versa.
Depending on your body shape, you can decide which part of the body you want to highlight. Women with heavier thighs can go for printed tops and plain A lines and women with large breasts can wear printed A lines to take the attention away from their breasts.
Floral printed Skirts

Whether it is a clear cut skirt, voluminous skirt or a mini skirt, a floral print is what completes the trend for this summer season. Florals are popular in a big way and hence you must stick to florals, be it big, small, medium or bold. Heavy women can go for small floral prints while the tall and the beautiful have a wider choice with all sorts of sizes and shapes in florals. The bold and beautiful flowers are for the thin women. Floral prints in greens, blues, yellows and oranges are the chosen shades for summer and they entirely suit the summer season. Florals look good on all lengths. While the tall women can print florals on voluminous skirts, the shorter ones can stick to midis and A lines. These are great for teaming up with a plain top to balance the busy print.

Again this summer is the season of midis. Whether it is a midi skirt or a dress, flaunt them with style. Midis are great for all sorts of women as they can be simply styled to suit your taste. They can be flared, fitted, with pockets or medium length or short. They suit all occasions including office wear if it is the right fabric and style. Midi skirts can be teamed up with crisp white shirts for office. A jacket can be thrown in for that impending meeting if you want to look a little more formal.
Knee length skirts

Again this is just a variation in length and so we have great possibilities to manoeuvre it to suit any style. A knee length skirt helps plus sizes and fat women as they would want to cover their thighs adequately to avoid attention. Just over the knee will make sure that fast women do not look short while wearing them. Here, there is also scope for keeping the lines simple or going for volume as both the trends suit the season.
Plus size women must keep the style simple while the taller ones can go in for experimentation with style as anything long or short would still look stunning on them. Summer is all about keeping the skirts short and simple always. But many cannot do that as very few have the sleek body to carry short and sweet clothes stylishly. Playing around with styles and prints that suit your body is important even when you go by trends and seasons.
