A simple knot or twist on your favourite dress or skirt will revolutionise the way you wear your favourite styles this season.
As sunny days break through to brighten all of our days, we can slowly start ditching the multiple layers we’ve been sporting so far this year. Now, it’s time to focus on the separates that’ll see you though every outing you’ll hopefully have this summer. The joyous moment of freeing our feet from socks and boots is upon us, and now is officially the best time to shop for sandals that are bound to sell out. Not only for summer sandals, it’s also the time to snap up the best dresses and skirts, too.
We’ve already given you the down-low on the slit midi skirts that are key for spring/summer 2021, and we’re about to add another detail to the mix. It’s all about tiny tweaks that make your outfits inevitably more chic, and knotted styles are stealing the limelight this season.
We’re not talking a simple belt tie, we mean the fabric of the dress or skirt being knotted to create a small detail that makes a big impact.
Think a summery sarong style skirt or your favourite shirt dress with a twisted knot drawing the eye in at the front. Any dress or skirt style gets the seal of approval as long as it has the sleek, knotted detail somewhere on the design.
Managing to make any summer dress or skirt look premium; Asos has created the dream black cut-out style that ticks of so many trends in one, Jacquemus’ mini style is back for another season and Zara has iteration that bound to reach cult status.
