As soon as I laid my eyes on this skirt, it was love at first sight. The full skirt is quite possibly the most flattering style of skirt for any woman, as it accentuates the smallest part of the waist and stops short just above the ankle, it’s is pretty difficult not to feel ‘Gone with the wind fabulous’ in this stand out piece. This particular one is the softest grey and super heavy, perfect for these colder months, it creates such a dramatic silhouette and just makes you feel ever so lady like. As I was going for afternoon tea with my mum, I was caught up in the moment and went all out. Teamed with simple, pointy black shoes, a fine knit jumper and vintage feather bag I really was channeling my inner high society Princess….Sorry I haven’t lost it, just going with the romantic, girly theme of the skirt! Natalie Portman and Jessica Alba, two of my girl crushes, have also been seen in similar (more expensive) styles. My top tips for wearing this style, is to always keep the top half streamline and fitted, whether that be a t’shirt, jumper or blouse, avoid anything boxy, keep jackets cropped. Let the skirt be the masterpiece, keep heels dainty and feminine, also pointy flat shoes can look equally chic. So treat yourself, break out of the jeans and watch your waist magically shrink to wasp like proportions!
