Wrap skirt … what to wear this week

Wrap skirt … what’s the scoop?

If you’re looking to set off this New Year in a trend-tastic-nailed-it-before-it-even-began kind of way, you couldn’t go far wrong with a wrap skirt. Although these little cuties have been bubbling around on the micro trend circuit for the last few seasons, this time around they are coming at us full pelt in anything from mini to midi size.

What’s great about the wrap skirt in any length, is that it’s an infinitely flattering little number and has a certain touch of va-va-voom to it. Which makes it a great sartorial choice for anything from office wear to date night, when paired with some vertiginous heels…. as long as you’re not dating Tom Cruise that is…

There are oodles to choose from out there, but this lovely Dion Lee one caught my eye this morning and it’s on sale at Matches right now.

Wrap skirt… how to wear it.

I love the versatility of these wrap skirts, I’ve paired this one with this awesome Whistles short faux fur jacket, and an equally versatile J.Crew Tilly sweater. I also found these Paul Andrew Taplow felted-wool heels on sale at Matches.

I’m a fan of anything by Eugenia Kim, check out this Eugenia Kim beanie on sale, as well as the Gemma Redux necklace from The Outnet.

It’s not all about the sales though, new season pieces are landing in stores all the time – take a peek at this L.K. Bennett bucket bag collection.

As with any skirt choice you need to think about where the hem hits on your leg to get the best out of it. If you have a set of knock out pins go for a shorter version. Looking to hide a case of post Chrimbo flabby thighs? Then opt for a more demure length. The key thing to remember is to have the hemline hit at a flattering part of your leg – which is generally just above the knee, just below the knee, or where the calf starts tapering off when looking at a midi.

Equally if you love the fit of the skirt you are trying on, but the hemline isn’t working for you, buy it with a view to getting it hemmed to the right length once you’ve snapped it up.
