The hottest trends in skirts for the coolest girls
Mini, midi or maxi - no matter what length you prefer we’ll show you how to style your skirts. You’ll be able to create trendy mix & match looks in a flash, just like the fashion bloggers and “it” girls.
Have you heard about the hemline index? According to this theory, skirt lengths are a predictor of economic performance; in times of economic prosperity, ladies’ skirts are short and in bad times, they are longer. Whether this is true or not remains to be seen, but either way, this season’s motto is: the trendiest length is whichever length you prefer. This autumn/winter 2017/2018 season, red skirts and chequered skirts are especially fashionable, covering this season’s hottest colour and pattern trends. At JustFab we bring you all the latest fashions in skirts, from size 10 to 26. And we’ll even tell you the best ways to style all the different lengths.
How to style a miniskirt
Miniskirts, especially colourful ones, exude a trendy 60s vibe. Shorter ladies look particularly good in miniskirts because the short length creates the illusion of longer legs. But with just a few styling tips everyone can rock the miniskirt, regardless of body type: if you want to hide wide hips or strong thighs, it is best to avoid a really short, tight-fitting skirt; instead, opt for a flared knee-length skirt. Even in winter, miniskirts are a popular choice and look great combined with a pair of thick stockings or leggings. When it comes to picking the right shoe for the outfit, just about anything goes: from flats to heels, from sneakers to boots - they all look FABulous with a miniskirt.
How to style a midi skirt
Midi skirts - from knee length to calf length - are in high demand. A word of caution: as trendy as these skirts are, they don’t look good on everyone. Taller ladies with lean legs will have no problem wearing an elegant, knee-length skirt. Unfortunately, this is not a flattering look for big girls. A flared hem like an A-line skirt or Rockabilly style are a better choice. If you have stronger calves, combining your midi skirt with high heels will make your calves look slimmer. This is also a great trick for shorter girls who want to add a little extra height.
How to style a maxi skirt
Maxi skirts are a real fashion godsend because no matter what body type you are, a long dress or skirt always looks good. There is only one rule when it comes to styling a maxi skirt: wide skirts should always be paired with a tight top - and tight skirts with a loose-fitting top. Long skirts look especially FABulous when it comes to larger sizes and create a flattering look for girls with wider hips and heavier legs. Shorter ladies can hide their heels in a maxi skirt, letting them disappear under the long skirt. Looking for a skirt for a special occasion? Pair your maxi skirt with an evening top to conjure up your own personal sophisticated red-carpet look.

Combat the dull, grey weather with bright red
A little splash of colour can really lift your mood on a dreary day - hence why this season's trend colour is: Red. All the hottest designers used red in their catwalk shows - in every shade from bright red to deep wine tones. Be it coats, cardigans, jumpers, sweatshirts, blazers, trousers, skirts or accessories, red will spice up your winter wardrobe. Daring fashion lovers will embrace this trend by wearing red from head to toe. For those who prefer classic looks, it will be an elegant combination of red and black. Purists will opt for a splash of red to accent their outfit, for instance, a pair of red shoes or a handbag in a bold shade.
Metallics are delivering a sparkling performance this season. Particularly shoes and boots are making a mark in gold, silver and copper tones. Wearing multiple accessories in the same metallic tone creates a truly elegant look. Achieve a coordinated effect by wearing shoes, hair accessories and jewellery, e.g. earrings, necklaces and bracelets, from the same colour family. A metallic clutch or a shimmering evening bag completes this glamorous look.
From floral patterns to animal prints - things are getting colourful
Vibrant patterns are in vogue. Whether it's diamonds, polka dots or florals, on a large scale or combined in interesting ways: anything goes. How about a leopard-print coat, a star-patterned jumper, a long, romantic floral dress or a cute chequered skirt, for example? Or perhaps a bit more subdued with a chequered scarf, a leopard-print cross body bag, pretty star-shaped earrings, or a jacket and boots with floral details? Delicate floral embroidery on boots and ankle boots are popular this autumn and winter. And if you are interested to find out how other like our boots, check out the JustFab UK reviews.
The velvet look - soft and elegant
Velvet is THE trend fabric of the 2017 autumn/winter season not just for boots in UK. This soft fabric lends an especially trendy touch to shoes: not only do velvety high heels, velvet boots and velvet sneakers look elegant, they are also incredibly comfortable. This fabric is also vegan, so even green fashionistas are loving the new trend. What's more: soft, velvety hair accessories are experiencing a revival. This can be seen by the return of the legendary "scrunchie", the velvet hair band from the 90's. But scrunchies are more than just a fashion statement: these soft hair bands cause less hair breakage than other hair ties.
Back to the 90's
The 90's retro fashion trend is also seen with other accessories. Chokers are also back, as are badges and pins. Even XXL earrings are taking over the world of fashion again, this time in the form of creoles or pom-poms and even earrings with tassel details. Perhaps one of the strangest trends of the season, already being sported by supermodels, fashion bloggers and fashion editors, is the bum bag or fanny pack. What was once considered an unfashionable tourist accessory is now being worn by every It-girl - perhaps not surprisingly, given how practical this unusual accessory can be.
Treading the new season in flats
Just before the freezing temperatures start to ring in the boot season, there's one trend that cannot be ignored: the moccasin. These comfortable flat shoes are overtaking the much-loved ballerinas in popularity and are the must-have shoes for the 2017/2018 autumn/winter season. And the best part? Moccasins are easily combined with several other trends: for example, a pair of moccasins in a trendy shade of red, a metallic finish, or a hot floral or leopard print. The possibilities are endless.
Winter boots from classical to outrageous
When the weather gets too cold for moccasins, it's time for our stylish boots: be it heeled ankle boots, flat Chelsea boots or warm over-the-knee boots. We have a large assortment: from classical to quirky, from subtle, muted tones to flamboyant designs with bright colours and patterns.
And so, in winter we say: Dress up warmly and look FABulous and watch out for JustFab shoe sale UK with "Boots 3 for 2" and other great offers, which make us one of the best shoe shops in UK.
