Tiny skirts are fine if you're 16 and built like a twig, If you are not, but you are bored with wearing the ankle-skimming alternatives, a white trouser suit is the answer. Happily, wherever you see a micro-mini this summer, a white trouser suit will not be far away. Of the high street stores, Oasis and French Connection have come up with some that are well-proportioned and reasonably priced. If you want the best, go to Armani. But don't forget, trouser suits date dangerously quickly (lapels, trousers, waists change every year), so best not think of this as an investment, just a one-summer thing.
