The skirt is simply this season’s must-have item. With so many styles available there is an option for everyone. But don’t just take it from us; the street-style stars have embraced a new found love for the skirt. They proved popular in recent weeks at London Fashion Week because of their versatile, stylish appeal.

Skirts were all over the autumn/winter catwalks, proving that they are not limited to the sunnier weather of the summer months. The new womanly look can only mean one thing: the rise of the skirt. So swap your trousers for something more feminine this season.

This autumn there truly is an option for everyone. The classic midi-length that has come to the forefront of fashion continues to reign but in a new fluid, relaxed shape. The pencil skirt is also a go-to shape- just in time for those Christmas parties.  But the biggest revival has to be the 60s rebellion of the mini skirt, yes that’s right, the mini is back with a vengeance.

The Fluid Full Skirt
Ever since the full skirt became one of fashion’s favourite pieces we have loved and adored the flattering shape. The wearable item has had a modern makeover and the new flowing, loose shape simply adds to its effortless appeal. As the icy weather prevails we’ll be layering up by pairing the fluid silhouette with oversized chunky knits, ribbed socks and ankle boots for a fashionable, cosy winter look.

The A-line Mini Skirt
The 60s youthquake inspired many of the designer autumn/winter collections and the cute, coquettish A-line mini shape is one we want to adopt. The rebellious mood even continued into fabrics, with checked and leather styles adding a true nostalgia. For a retro influenced look wear yours with a polo neck jumper and flat mary-jane shoes.

The Sleek Pencil Skirt
If you’re not quite ready to slash your hemlines and rekindle your love for the mini skirt, then the pencil skirt is your go-to shape. The classic style has been reinvented with pretty lace and modern metallic options that deserve hero status. Pair yours with ankle socks and heels by day and throw on your favourite top for a glamorous Christmas party outfit. The sophisticated shape will flatter your curves and have you the envy of the ball.

Whether you choose to re-live your youth with a mini, embrace winter cool with a fluid full silhouette and a knit or dress like a lady in a shapely pencil skirt, this season the skirt is your go-to item.
