This summer, some of the biggest trends are ruffles and tiers.
The key is to keep it simple. Ruffles are beautiful, but can also accentuate your frame, so be careful where the ruffles fall on your outfit. It may add some extra weight in places you don’t really need.
I opted for ruffles from the hip down, as this adds curves to my skinny frame.
Chambray and denims are heavier fabrics which are great for structure (especially shaping the ruffles) but if your are curvier, there are gorgeous ruffled skirts in georgettes and chiffons which drape beautifully!

This summer, the sheer ‘Ballerina’ trend is probably the biggest allround. I decided to show it off in a beautiful, whimsical style instead of the layered urban looks we see so often.
I designed an empire maxi with an angel sleeve which could provide some arm coverage, if you need it!
The empire lengthens your torso…
And when layered over a tonal (similar colour) dress, it softens the look.
Try yours with a shorter dress as an option to the maxi and slightly show off your legs!
