From the flattering elegance of a pencil skirt to the urban appeal of frayed denim skirts, this edit takes us from the office to the weekend in effortless style.

Choose flirty femininity with skirts

When it comes to this season's skirts, it's all about proportion and silhouette. Pleats are huge right now - go for wide pleats in midi lengths for a nod to 50s fashion and enhance the demure look with a buttoned blouse. From pleated midi skirts to ethereal layered tulle skirts, short leather skirts to distressed denim minis - we love the versatility of this skirt range. Look for maxi lengths in jersey fabrics for daytime and wear with sneakers to showcase your love of the athleisure trend. Figure-hugging pencil skirts are a staple for the office while shimmering metallics, embellished minis and ruffled a-lines make perfect evening separates.

Change things up with the latest skirts

Play with texture through a suede skirt in a midi length. Look for rich jewel tones and fringing for a bohemian twist, or stick to dark leather skirts to keep things sophisticated and classic. Choose a long fitted skirt with side slits and team with a sleeveless peplum top for an elegant party outfit. Lace skirts can be a great way to work a vintage angle, while floral printed skirts in any fit are perfect for maximising that feminine feel.
