We move from last week's playful looks to the more relaxed lounge looks. Lounge looks - loose garments in lightweight cotton/lycra blend that allow freedom of movement without imposing restrictions - like caftan-style dresses, long skirts and flared trousers, are great on weekends when we want to simply relax indoors or outdoors: alone with a book or hang out with friends.

The looks we feature today are long skirts in varied fabric types and styles.

Look 1: form-fitting skirt with a tank top

Look 2: wide skirt with tank top

Look 3: wide skirt with white shirt for a less dressed up, relaxed look

Steps: knit skirt

1. Cut front and back and a waistband.

2. Join skirt at the side seams.

3. Join skirt to the waistband

4. Finish seam edges.

5. Hem.
