This autumn, skirts are a wardrobe must-have, and there are plenty of ways to style them to combat whatever the UK weather throws our way. Not sure which shape to go for? The good news is, there are plenty of options. The bad news? It’ll be impossible to choose just one…
The pencil skirt has had a revamp. No longer just a slinky hip-hugger for evening, the styles to wear now are as easy to dress down as they are up. At their most modern in statement fabrics like checked wool blends and leopard print, look for details like bold button accents (still a key trend from summer) or wrap silhouettes to really nail this trend.
Now less Little House on the Prairie and more carefree California road trip, handkerchief hemlines return to skirts and dresses, adding a contemporary romance. Fantastically versatile at this time of year, they’ll pair perfectly with ankle boots and bare legs until falling temperatures call for over-the-knee boots and a longline coat. Temper their femininity by styling with a simple tucked-in tee.
We’re so glad midi skirts and dresses are here to stay. The simplest way to add instant sophistication to a daytime look, wear a midi skirt beneath a longer coat or chunky shearling jacket this autumn – even better if there’s a slight hemline clash. Pair with slouchy boots for a slither of skin, or dress down with run-around trainers.
