Perfect Little Floral Skirt

Bargain little skirt to see you through the last of the summer days; it’s bold enough to hold its own against whatever you decide to wear with it, including bright orange shirts and neon-yellow vest tops. (I have tried both.) I like it because the white is still very summery, but the strong floral print means that you can wear it with deeper-toned autumnal colours for a more striking look. The fabric is soft and stretchy, really very comfortable and the length is just right, I think. Sitting on or slightly above the knee, it looks a little bit sexy, but is just about demure enough to pass as daywear! A great piece for those work-to-party days, too, as it looks good with ballet flats but even better when you stick some heels on.

As with most unstructured pencil skirts, you have to watch what you wear underneath – they tend to show up every lump and bump! I go for those smoothing knickers that don’t have any seams, kind of like a “boy short” style. Saying that, this floral skirt isn’t one of those shiny, clingy numbers; the fabric is textured, making things altogether a little more flattering and forgiving. It runs true to size – I chose a 10 and it fits perfectly. Find all sizes here.
