Fashion has yet again looked back for inspiration, this time drawing on the cocoon-style shapes of 20th century haute couture. And it’s with good reason – midi skirts can look spectacularly high fashion without much time or effort, and are highly skilled at flattering the body, nipping you in at the waist before skimming over your bottom half.
Perhaps you’ve always been scared to don a long voluminous skirt for fear of looking like your grandmother? This season there’s less of the vintage vibe and more luxe fabrics, fashion-forward prints, moody tones and a whole lotta edge. Keep this theme going by pairing an A-line skirt with boyish pieces in your wardrobe, like a leather biker jacket, lace-up brogues, button-up shirts and rockstar jewels.
