For this post I decided to combine the two major spring summer 2014 trends of blue denim and floral. For my first look wrapped my chiffon floral kimono into high waister pale denim shorts for a casual look that will be perfect for daytime in the summer or with tights in the spring for drinks with the girls. Switch the shorts for a pvc or plain black midi skirt and skyscraper heels for a super on trend evening outfit. The second look is more tailored and perfect for the office with bright blue court heels or for an interview with a cropped blazer instead of the cropped denim jacket. buttoning up a denim jacket with a tight midi skirt gives a flattering silhouette whilst having an upturned collar gives a nod to the 80s style that is back in fashion. My third outfit is, admittedly, more of a summer/warm weather/ outfit as the batwing blouse looks best without a jacket over the top but by swapping the blouse for a chiffon floral shirt and aviator jacket and tights the looks would be perfect for the daytime on a chilly spring day. If you find that skater skirts don't suit you as much as other shapes simply go for an a-line denim skirt and a cropped top for a flattering, fun outfit perfect for spring. The last look is very retro and the skirt is actually a vintage midi skirt altered to become a skater skirt that works well with this loose denim shirt. Similar to the 90s style the loose shirt pulled in at the waste and the shape of the skirt looks great on most shapes. This look is very casual but could be suitable for going out up by wearing a dairing crop top underneath with the denim shirt unbuttoned as a jacket and heeled boots.
Many designers have adopted this trend such as Paul&Joe, Etro, Dolce&Gabbana and Nina Ricci
