It feels as though overnight winter arrived, bringing with it those dreaded cold mornings. The kind of mornings where standing in front of your wardrobe figuring out an outfit is out of the question. At this time of year, I like the set out easy outfit guides, so I can hop out of bed, quickly dress and get on with caffeinating for the day ahead. When considering easy outfit builds, the simplest way to start is with capsule wardrobe pieces. Those versatile items that can be styled and restyled for various outfits, offering up easy solutions for dressing. One item I find myself relying on more than most is the humble slip skirt.
Recently, I hit the high street to explore the trending colours of the season, and naturally found myself in M&S. In testing out trending chocolate brown, I stumbled across a fluid, comfortable and luxe-looking satin slip skirt. From the fabric to the cut, as soon as I saw it I knew it was a winning piece, with plenty of outfit ideas already springing to mind, I figured I’d share with you how versatile the style is.
The elegant satin adds immediate elevation, whether pair with a simple t-shirt, or levelling up to your favourite going out top. Though I tested the chocolate brown hue (and fell in love with it) there’s no denying the universal appeal of classic black. Whether you’re heading out for a coffee date, commuting to the office or enjoying a dinner out, here’s 4 ways to style Marks & Spencer’s slip skirt for the autumn/winter season.
