Summer brings in its wake a riot of colour. Shocking pink, lime green, turquoise blue, lemon yellow, fiery orange and red are all colours that are used in textiles for summer clothing. Skirts are generally considered as clothing for women and found in varying lengths. The short or mini skirt, the midi that is at calf length and the maxi or long skirts that falls right down to the feet. The Scottish Kilt may be the only skirt that is worn by men!!

Long skirts for women are especially good for women who want to be trendy as well as cover themselves with modesty. Even in hot weather the summer skirt which is colourful would be a hit amongst them. For those summer evenings that have one’s social diary filled to the limit, long skirts with a well cut line and made of material of high quality, when teamed with a beautiful blouse or shirt makes for elegant attire. Long skirts worn over bathing suits are also a popular item of clothing to those who are soaking up the sun in beach areas. The summer skirt is generally made of colourful, flimsy material and could be long or short. For the morning the summer skirt is ideal when worn with a tee shirt or shirt or a blouse made with equally comfortable material.

Skirts can be of varying styles.

There is ruffled, pleated, tube like slim skirts and skirts cut on the flare. During medieval times ladies wore skirts that sometimes exceeded three metres in diameter. These voluminous long skirts for women were worn over a Farthingale. The Farthingale was a term given to the many structures that were worn under the long skirts for women in about the 16th century. Their origin is in Spain and is a hoop skirt made out of whale bone and is designed to give shape to the skirt. In modern times a crinoline based on the design of the Farthingale is used to give shape to long skirts in evening and wedding dresses.

Skirts are a part of a two piece ensemble and is very useful to mix and match with other items of clothing.
