We’ve had bodycon dresses, and now get ready for the bodycon skirt, slightly kinder to the figure, and a welcome change from all those billowy, floral numbers.
A simple, understated piece, this skirt is great for wearing with an interesting top to balance it out, and can be worn with flats and thick tights or leggings for a daytime look, or team it with bare legs or sheer tights and heels for the evening.
New Look have got the perfect one – the Plain Stretch Skirt is made of stretchy jersey material, sits above the knee, and has a waistband to give it a finished look. It’s available in three different colours – grey, a deep pink, and blue costing a minuscule £8 each. If you’re feeling brave, there’s also a black and white striped or red and white striped version for £12 – but remember what horizontal stripes can do!
Match these skirts with an embellished top, a vest, or a shirt – it’ll work with almost anything as long as it isn’t too long.
