That trend is silk/satin short skirts!
We've seen in previous seasons, long silk/satin skirts... and this is the norm.
And while it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I have never seen this before! (and this is why fashion is so fun)
Shorten the silk/satin skirt, and all of the sudden you have an entirely new, youthful look.
Pair it with a more masculine top and chunky sneakers (androgyny is the theme of modern fashion for sure).
I also recommend going for bright colors! Satin/silk materials show off colors in such a beautiful way, it would be a shame not showcase it!
And again, contrast the femininity of a bright satin/silk skirt with a neutral or even dark color like black or grey.
And as always, take a trend and make it your own! If you like more fitted/body con skirts then go for that. If you prefer more flow-y, skater skirts, then opt for that cut instead!
Trends are to be appreciated, but also customized so that your personality doesn't get lost along the way.

My mission in life is to design and make no-sew outfits, and in this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make an off-the-shoulder top without sewing.I want to start by telling you a little bit about the fabric that we’re using to make the top - scuba fabric. Scuba fabric is a solid fabric that means that both sides are identical - there is no distinction between right and wrong sides. It is also a self-finished fabric, so it doesn’t fray when you cut it. It is also a stretchy fabric which means that it will be really easy to wear.
