This Fashionista takes a tip from Jil Sander and makes a minimal maxi skirt the focus of her simple but chic ensemble.

Raf Simons reinvented the maxi this season with his fluorescent colour block skirts. Simple styling kept all eyes on those skirts; the colourful maxis packed a punch against plain, simple cut white T-shirts. The clean lines and modern, unfussy aesthetic made this catwalk look one of the season’s most coveted.

This Fashionista takes the look straight from the catwalk to the streets with her brightly coloured maxi skirt from Topshop. High street store has several different zesty hues in this style, just perfect for summer and easily dressed up for a night out or kept simple for day.

Side splits in the skirt offer the hint of subtle sexiness this look is all about. This Fashionista takes note from the catwalk, pairing her skirt with simple separates. A classic black vest and staple biker jacket cleverly keep the focus on the skirt, whilst adding toughness to an overtly feminine look.

This Fashionista gives her look an edge with chunky silver rings and layered charm necklaces. The envelope style bag is big news this summer — from clutches to satchels such as this Fashionista’s Urban Outfitters cross-body bag.

Hint: Don’t be afraid to match your lips to your outfit. At Jil Sander, models wore bright orange and fuchsia lipstick to match their skirts. This Fashionista chooses a flattering pinky red hue to complement her skirt. Barry M has a great range of bright but wearable lipsticks that will take your look up a notch.
