Hemlines tend to rise as the weather warms up and frivolous spring trends start emerging.

From sweetly girly to edgy and dark, fashion's new obsession with skater-girl style is all in the swing skirt that kicks out from the waist.

For crisp spring mornings pair Marcs' red dress with cosy black or grey stockings. Try Ruby's fun printed dress with strappy heels for an evening out, and Forever New's easy stripe version with flip flops for a lazy day at the beach.
