Berry coloured skirts are perhaps my favourite trend for Autumn/Winter 2011. I’ve picked a few of my (affordable) online favourites as an example of just how many there are to choose from! Whether you’re more of a raspberry-reveller, a rose-tinted honey or a rich nectarine junkie – there’s sure to be a design to suit you here.
The key for wearing this trend seems to be colour clashing – mix your berry hues with a crazy print blouse or patterned knit. Graphic = great. I love the new crochet-look prints from House of Holland too. You can buy the pieces here at ASOS, although don’t say I didn’t give you fair warning of the steep prices! They look exactly like the blankets my grandma has on her sofa. Shabby ,vintage chic clearly still has a place among the fashion elite.
I’ve recently developed a crush on 1920s pleated skirts too. I currently own 2 calf-length lovelies – one in navy blue (New Look) and one in bright coral (River Island). I’m therefore very happy to see that this trend isn’t just limited to summer – although I may just need to invest in a rose-petal coloured one in order to keep right up to date…
