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).
