Mini skirts, voluminous lady-like skirts, clear styles, floral prints and different fabrics are hot when it comes to 2011 skirt trends. With the collection Marc by Marc Jacobs, the famous designer proves that he is a real genius when it comes to modern feminine clothing as he prepared high-waisted midi skirts matched with sexy blouses and tops. Another important lesson about femininity and beauty could be spotted at Jason Wu, who presented remarkable skirts and feminine chiffon blouses.

Voluminous, lady-like skirts are very chic for spring/summer 2011. The A-line skirt works great for every body type as it usually falls in a flawless line that is flattering for the hips. Moreover, if you have a more boyish figure, a voluminous skirt can help you create the illusion of sexy, feminine curves. This is also a perfect choice for women with a pear-shaped body. At Chloé you could see the ladylike style, while at Chanel the feminine skirt had an unfinished feel.

If you are more the conservative type of girl, you should know that minimalist skirts are very hot for spring/summer 2011. The minimalist approach brings a whole new dimension on the runway, but also on the street adding elegance through simplicity and decency. Skirts made with clear tailoring and classic geometrical shapes could be spotted at Céline and Brioni.

Floral prints are among the hottest trends for spring/summer 2011 and skirts make no exception (D&G, Erdem). They are so feminine, sweet and romantic. On the other hand, another timeless presence in matters of skirts is the maxi one. It is omnipresent every summer, made from breezy fabrics in plain colors or with different prints. Next season you can draw your inspiration from Lanvin for a military look, yet very feminine due to the stunning maxi skirt, or from the Jil Sander collection.
