Simple, classic, understated. It sums up my wardrobe very well. I only buy pieces that I will wear many times and for years to come. Basically, my dress sense is good, boring. Skirts — especially the all-singing, all-dancing statement skirt — couldn’t be less than me. When and where will I wear it? And, even if I do get an opportunity, it hardly gets much use.
They should be a no-go zone but this season I can’t resist. Beaded and sequin embellishments were in Prada, striking purple metallic leather at Saint Laurent, silky taffeta at Miu Miu, and pleated print satin at Versace.

not just for parties
It turns out that once you own a statement skirt, you’ve got opportunities to wear it and your skirt doesn’t need to be ‘saved for the best’. Something eye-catching, fun, and a little bonkers would also look great at the office, like this tiered tulle skirt from Bowden (right), teamed up with a cashmere jumper.
perfect with nits
Whether it’s day or night, I’ll let your skirt do the talking and keep the rest of your outfit simple. You’re bordering on fancy dress with some of these designs and as fun as it is, it might not be the look you want. So pair it with simple knitwear in neutral colors and understated footwear, whether it’s trainers, loafers or an elegant court shoe. what are you waiting for?
