Try these spring trends straight from the catwalk

Spring has finally sprung and bare legs are back. We're not in the business of lecturing women on when their bodies should be spring-ready this season - as far as we're concerned, you can flaunt your legs by simply trading in your 100 denier tights for a pair of on-trend silk shorts. The catwalks are full of designs that make the most of legs, with micro-length skirts, sophisticated shorts and textured midi skirts making an appearance. We take four of the hottest looks from the catwalk for you to try this spring.

Metallic leather

Shimmering fabrics are no longer confined to evening-wear and the winter months. Pick out bold separates in metallic leather and don't be afraid to experiment with colour - green, purple and pink hi-shine metallic skirts were seen in abundance this season. We love this green metallic mini skirt and crop-top co-ord.

Jacquard midi skirts and jacquard dresses

Luxe is best this season, so make sure your spring wardrobe includes some textured jacquard skirts and jacquard dresses to mix and match with your more basic pieces. It's the perfect fabric to add a luxury edge to your outfit without breaking the bank. Continuing with the metallic trend, foil crop-tops were spotted on the runways of London Fashion Week, which look great teamed with a longer jacquard skirt in a statement colour, such as punchy red.

Shorts in all lengths

Whether you're a micro girl or a culotte girl, this season there are shorts for women to suit everyone's taste. Wearing shorts is guaranteed to turn heads, so make sure your skin is looking healthy, shiny and moisturised. Touching on the Eastern theme that infiltrated the catwalk this season, these silk high-waisted shorts are a practical way to bare your legs while still being comfortable.

Pleated skirts and pleated dresses

If you want to try out some of bold primary colours that dominated the catwalks this season, opt for bold red pleats, like this stunning ra-ra dress in colour-pop scarlet. Layering works really well with this trend too, check out this elegant pleated mini skirt that pairs perfectly with smooth pins.
