Appearing last night at the L.A. premiere of Netflix show The Brother SunGwyneth Paltrow styled a head-to-toe red ensemble that not only showcased one of the biggest colour trends of the season but also highlighted what’s set to be a key silhouette for 2024. Reviving something akin to a second-skin, long-sleeved top, Paltrow chose a deep scoop neck in a rich red shade and paired it with a tailored maxi skirt and slim belt in a tonal hue. Her red carpet look feels super fresh and is also something we’d genuinely love to wear, which is no small feat. 

Whilst Paltrow might be the first celebrity as of late who we’ve noticed in the cold-proof item, tailored maxi skirts have experienced a revival amongst the fashion set in recent months. Frequently paired with a slim-fitting top, the floor-length skirt pairs well with sleek kitten heels or sharp leather loafers.

Whilst the office-siren aesthetic continues to bloom, an appreciation for some once-forgotten key silhouettes has arrived in tandem. Whilst the pencil skirt trend has reached new heights in recent weeks, it’s cool older sister—the tailored maxi skirt—isn’t far behind. Designers such as Marni and Tibi sent tailored maxi skirts down the spring/summer 2024 runways, whilst high-street brands including H&M and Mango have already caught on to their growing appeal. 

Whilst a structured maxi skirt looks sharp with a fitted top or tailored blazer, when styled with a lighter colour palette and soft fabrics such as wool or cashmere, this tailored skirt can look even more refined. For a luxurious take on winter styling, finish the outfit with pointed-toe flats or leather kitten heels.
