Utility chic

Utility trend still rules, and with a few styling tips, you can make it work double duty.

The timeless pencil skirt is my go-to all Summer long, is super flattering and great for day-to-knit wear.  Midi lengths are best for tall ladies, while just below the knee styles suit petites.

If you want to tap into next season in style, go for a suedette skirt in baby blue – like this one from River Island. Team with a white tee and Converse for weekends, or with a crochet vest and buckle sandals for a city-approved ensemble.
