Skirting The Issue: Six Skirts You’ll Be Seeing Everywhere This Season
The ultimate symbol of femininity and an item of clothing that should abound in every woman’s closet, the skirt has come in as many variations as there are days in the year. This season it’s all about the details; the super deep split, exciting textures like ruffles and pleats and all hail the A-line, the number one skirt trend this season.
This swinging sixties staple is making a massive comeback! The A-line skirt is feminine, the ideal garment to highlight and slim your waist and super chic to boot. The A-line is the “it” skirt this season and a fantastic trans-seasonal piece to add to your wardrobe. As versatile as it is classic, the A-line comes in as many styles as you have places to be.
For the authentic Twiggy look, don a teeny tiny version of the A-line skirt, worn with a tucked in tee to get you through the last of the warmer days. Go for a high waisted option if you want to lengthen your body.
Try an A-line in a thicker fabric with tights and a turtleneck to keep you toasty warm as we head towards winter. Make it seasonally appropriate by opting for autumn colours, like oranges, maroons and purples and warm, earthy textures like tweed.
A leather A-line skirt is a true investment piece which will take you right through the cooler months and into the next decade. It will pair with everything from sneakers to heels, hoodies to sequins.
To add some originality to your look, a new and different shape is a great way to create interest. Asymmetrical detailing, structured fabrics and layering are all ways to draw the eye to your skirt and outfit.
Chic, sexy and oh-so-now, the split is the skirt trend you will be seeing on women everywhere this season. In iterations from the double split, to the thigh high split and the maxi split, this skirt can take you from comfy to vampy and everywhere in between. The key to this trend is, the deeper the split, the better! For an accessible take on the look, keep it simple, pairing a thigh high split maxi skirt with a t-shirt and a pair of sneakers to create a loose, flowing silhouette perfect for running errands or having a casual cup of coffee with your girlfriends.
Just Pleat It
Elegant and incredibly versatile, a pleated skirt can add some romance to your outfit, be it a casual weekend outing or a day at the office. As we head towards the cooler months, try a pleated skirt, styled with a turtleneck and skinny belt to flatter your figure and keep you warm as the days start turning crisp and autumnal. Or, for a glamorous night on the town, a metallic version can be paired with a simple top, black strappy heels and some bold jewellery for a show stopping look.
