There are so many fantastic skirt shapes around at the moment. Avoid skater styles and opt for slightly longer flared and pleated skirts. Midi pencil skirts are a great shape – they suit pretty much everyone. Layer with thick wools to avoid looking too ‘done’. While not pictured here, boxy minis, which preferably aren’t too mini, with neat pockets and sharp detailing are a perfect winter staple worn with opaque tights and heeled boots.
