This week we're throwing back to issue 31 and the Simone Francis's sweet Sun Kissed Skirt.
Why we love it: It's such a versatile piece, that can be dressed up or down for any occasion. It's also such an easy piece to customise and could be made into a fabulous maxi skirt or a daring mini!
As the skirt gets longer, rest it on your knee so as not to stretch the lace pattern. You can easily adjust the length by trying on the skirt as you go.
Simone says: ‘Inspired by the beautiful lace garments on the catwalks and thinking of summer sun and sandy beaches – this lovely skirt can be worn for day with a slip or sheer for evening.’
