Put away your pleats and say farewell to floaty numbers because this season’s skirt shape comes straight out of the boardroom and into the bar. The pencil skirt is back and it’s set to be big, so forget what you think you know about the simple skirt shape and prepare to wonder how you ever managed without it.   


Back in the day, no wiggle chick was without a sheath skirt that hugged her curves and exuded kittenish appeal. The new season’s skirt shape is softer and looser, skimming the body rather than enveloping it, and in fabrics and colours that just wouldn’t - and shouldn’t - work in the boardroom.

Of course, it isn’t just about the skirt you wear but how you wear it. Pair a black heeled ankle boot with your pencil skirt and jumper combo in the day, or bring your classic leather skirt bang up to date by switching your white shirt for a grey marl tee. This season’s ladylike mid-heels are the perfect pairing for pencil skirts but a slouchy knit or t-shirt on top will avoid any matronly connotations.
