One of my favourite S/S 2011 collections had to be Raf Simon's spectacular workings at Jil Sander. It's very rare that something fresh and exciting actually comes along, and this collection was totally revolutionary- primary coloured maxi skirt and white tee= the perfect summer formula.
It is a brilliant collection: see it for yourself here.
If Jil Sander is a little out your budget range, and you want an instant hit of this minimal but super-cool look head straight to American Apparel.
The store, renowned for unitards and hotpants, has this bright look to perfection with simple skirts in bright emerald and cobalt (i'm sure more colours will be available soon- i'm looking out for a fuchsia one!)- as well as a great range of plain t-shirts.
So no excuses for shunning the simple maxi this season- this look could not be easier to pull off and looks perfect with a smart jacket and a slick of MAC Girl About Town lipstick!
