I’m a big fan of skirts, as I’m sure regular readers will already know: in fact, I prefer them to dresses, purely because they’re that bit more versatile a simple change of top can create a completely different look, and I’m all for that.
When it comes to dressing for the party season (Which I guess I should probably start thinking about, now that December’s only two weeks away!), a skirt can be a really good buy: so here are some of my favourites right now…
Miss Selfridge shimmer pencil skirt
This Miss Selfridge pencil skirt immediately caught my attention, as much for the colour, as for the shimmery fabric. At a time of year when most evening or dress wear tends to be black, or similarly dark in colour, I love how a lighter colour like this can really stand out. I also love the matching roll neck sweater, and am actually tempted to buy both of these to wear on Christmas day. Er, I can’t believe I’m actually thinking about what to wear on Christmas day. Moving on…
Topshop velvet pleat midi
This one is already proving popular amongst fashion bloggers and Instagram users: I’ve already seen it on a few of my favourites, and every time I do, I find myself struggling not to just hit that “buy now” button. It’s interesting, because, on paper, a yellow velvet pleated skirt doesn’t sound like something I’d particularly want to wear, and yet look at it: stunning, right?
Little Mistress Tulle Midi Skirt
I’m a sucker for a bit of tulle – and, luckily for me, so are a lot of the high street retailers I like to frequent! I keep being tempted by tulle skirts in every colour of the rainbow: this one is by Little Mistress, and it’s also available in black and nude.
Oasis jacquard mini skirt
It would be much too short for me, but in the interests of including something for everyone, this jacquard mini skirt from Oasis is a little different from the kind of thing I usually feature – love that fabric, though!
Warehouse sequin pencil skirt
Every year, I tell myself I’m going to buy myself a skirt like this one. Every year, I find something else to spend my money on instead. Will I ever get that skirt? Stay tuned…
Closet red side-bow midi skirt
I love red all year round, but it really comes into its own around Christmastime. Love that bow, too!
