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?

Get those legs out in a summer skirt!

So, summer has made an appearance – better late than never! And now that means it’s time for our legs to make an appearance! In a skirt! Yes, a skirt. Remember them, you wear them when the weather’s good, with no tights? Feel the cool summer breeze around your bare legs? No, well, I suppose it has been a while…

Ah, we’re kidding, of course you know what a skirt is. But have you got the perfect summer skirt yet? Probably not. And there’s always room for one more summer skirt in the wardrobe we say, so here are a few we are currently coveting.

Let’s start with this lovely pink floral midi summer skirt from BHS (£24.50). Great for a summer wedding with a pale top, a pretty pink jacket, heels, hat and bag? Or for just chilling in the sun with a vest top, a denim jacket, and some flat sandals. So versatile.
