Singer Nicola Roberts swept up some spring/summer trends on Wednesday night wearing a maxi to Mahiki

Girls Aloud‘s Nicola Roberts kick-started the New Year in style on Wednesday, slipping on a red silk maxi skirt for a night out at Mahiki.

While most people were likely laid up in bed dreaming of detoxing, the singer leapt straight into spring/summer 2013 with her look.

Nicola looked undeniably chic in her red pleated silk skirt, complete with cream cardigan and black bag.

But we can’t help think that she probably swept up a fair few rain-soaked fag butts, passing pedestrians and fellow clubbers in her flowing skirt!

Would YOU risk wearing a silk maxi skirt to Mahiki (or any other celebrity hangout)?

We’re with Nicola on this – so just stick a (manicured) middle finger up at the weather and wear whatever you like when you like!
