Sunny climes mean one thing - bare legs, don't care. It's time to part with your old faithful tights and embrace getting your pins out.
The choice is endless: shorts, playsuits and dresses - but we're talking skirts. The kind of skirts that cater for every summer scene. Skirts from French Connection's spring/summer 2014 new collection.
Yes ultra-chic styles fit for the office (nothing is more classic than a crisp white shirt and pencil skirt combo), floral prints and feminine flared looks - all of which will work with a peep toe heel, flaform or a pair of ugly flats.
If you're really not ready to get your legs out yet, opt for a maxi style. Otherwise midis are the trend du jour.
Soft leather styles (perfect for working that monochrome trend), panelling, high waists (wear with your fave statement-making slogan t-shirt), pleats and asymmetric detailing are just some of the looks up for grabs from this high street haunt. Better yet fill that online shopping basket for an instant fashion fix.
As for price points? They start out around £30 and go up to £160 (for ladies all about real leather staples) so a browse through this edit is worth while.
