Super Skirts – weekly wishlist

Skirts are great. Long, short, midi. We love them all. It’s time to bare those legs in a mini, or swish around in a maxi, or just take the middle ground in an on-trend midi. Super skirts are here to stay, and they’re on our weekly wishlist this week.

What super skirts do you love the best? Perhaps a bright, bold patterned maxi skirt to makea bold statement with? We love this orange and black and white number from BHS (£30) with a fabulous leaf pattern.

Staying with maxis for now, super skirts don’t come much more super than French Connection’s cotton white embrioidered lace veritable feast of a skirt! (£85).

Midi skirts are marvellous. Full-skirted they evoke the 1950s, straight, well they’re straight out of the 90s. New Look’s peachy tie waist midi (£15.99) is a true 90s homage.

Whilst this gorgeous striped number from Valley of the Dolls at JOY (£45) is as ladylike as super skirts get!

New Look’s grey, black and white pleated midi (£26.99) is a statement of a skirt – keep the restof your outfit simple with this colour-blocking marvel.

And even bolder is New Look’s black and white striped full-skirted midi (£24.99). Marvellous doesn’t do it justice.

H&M’s bold floral pencil skirt (£24.99) will see heads turn. Team with black or white for subtlety, or mix up your patterns for a bold look. Also at H&M, play with shape and hemline with this fab black jersey drape skirt (£7.99) which sits high at the front, draping gently at the back.

GAP’s nude linen drawstring waist skirt (£29.95) has ‘holiday essential’ written all over it. White Stuff’s bold printed A-line skirt  (£47.50)is classic, with a twist, and one for print fans.

BHS’s bright acid orange simple A-line mini (£20) is a great way to brighten up a work outfit, and French Connection’s dip dye denim mini (£65) is perfect for lazy summer days.

What’s at the top of your super skirts list?

Simple style: Sweat x Skirt

Sometimes simple style works the best. As we break into springtime (it is coming, we promise), we want to do so as easily as we can. So, here’s our pick for simple style for spring – a skirt and a sweat.

That’s it. A short skirt, and a sweatshirt (add a pair of ballet flats, or pumps), maybe some sunnies, and a slouchy bag, and off you go. Perfect, simple style, even those uber-chic Parisian girls would envy (or maybe not, because that’s where we’re actually stealing it from!).

So, we’ve done the hard part, and matched eight skirts and eight sweat tops for you!

First up, New Look’s cute ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ sweat (£14.99) with GAP’s fun circular pleated black skirt (£34.95).
