Trend watch: get those ankles out

Calf-length is seriously in this spring and it's time to get your legs out. But, not too much, I'm talking ankles and calves only - let's not go too risqué here! Calf-length culottes and midi-length skirts are super flattering and also look uber cool. Culottes are a great alternative to jeans if you're not a fan of wearing skirts and midi-skirts are a safe leap into femininity for non-girly girls such as myself!

You've culotte to be kidding me

I had to go with a pun title, I can't help it. Rock culottes in a relaxed way like fashion blogger babe Gema from Fashion Frame By G or dress them up with heels and your favourite cami for a night out on the cocktails. ‌
‌ If you're a fan of the Scandi-minimal cool look then culottes are perfect for you. I love the light colour of these Waven Denim Culottes. Carry on the denim theme with these 70s style River Island Denim Culotte Dungarees. Pair with suede boots and a floaty top for that retro look! Finally, in the culotte department, I love these Pinstripe Navy Culottes - they scream 80s business man with a bucket of style on top. Sounds off the wall, but that's just how we roll here.

Stuck in the middle

My style crush Megan Ellaby is all about the midi skirt at the moment and I am so with her. They're super flattering and you can either go all our prom-style or keep it minimalist and chic with a wrap style. There's definitely a midi skirt for everyone. I think they can look super cool with trainers and, like culottes, you can dress them up for a night out. ‌
‌ If you're new to the whole midi skirt trend then play it safe with a dark neutral like this Anna Field Navy Midi Skirt. This would look great paired with minimalist white trainers and a simple striped tee. Crank up the style notches with a statement midi such as this Stripe Dorothy Perkins Pleated Midi Skirt, the movement on this skirt is really cool and can easily be dressed up or down. A perfect spring-summer transition has to be wearing white and this Twin Sister White Stripe Midi Skirt comes with a super cute matching crop top and is awesome for picnics in the park and drinking cider in beer gardens!
