It’s another trend we can blame on Brexit – the fluctuating hemlines we saw on the spring catwalks are a reflection of the tumultuous nature of the stock markets, apparently.
That may not be strictly true, but fashion is certainly veering towards skewed edges and one-sided designs right now, injecting much-needed freshness into the high street collections too.
These are the investment buys you won’t regret.
A swishy handkerchief hem skirt is the must-buy of the season.
It’s a very flattering fit, falling to midi length, but showing flashes of leg as you walk – just make sure your top is neat and fitted to counteract the busy bottom-half.
Same goes for the hanky hem’s sleek sister, the wrap skirt, which is also making a comeback for spring.
Last summer, the Bardot neckline dominated, but this year it’s all about the Eighties-inspired one-shoulder top.
Try a long-sleeved shoulder-bearing blouse or jersey top, paired with jeans and heels for an equally Eighties homage.
Encompassing gathering, rouching, peplums and tie detailing, these off-kilter pieces are handy if you want to detract attention from, say, your waist, without sacrificing on style.
