The Sophisticated Skirt I Wore On Repeat Last Summer Is Back (And Better Than Ever)

As a fashion editor, I may spend a lot of time searching through new-in pieces and finding standout high-street finds, but only a scarce few pieces make their way into my wardrobe. Every item that does has to meet high standards and be an exceptionally versatile addition that are worthy of taking up space in my limited closet. Last summer, I came across a black midi skirt with a smocked waist, and having only one or two skirts in my arsenal it soon joined the roster. For the rest of summer, it was my most worn piece. Whilst my version is sold out, I came across an almost identical version at none other than & Other Stories, and it’s ready to join your outfit rotations right now.

Featuring a wide skirt, hidden pockets and an elegant smocked waistband, the skirt is almost identical to my own, so I can confidently speak to its versatility. Mine has been paired with a graphic tee and trainers for Sunday afternoon market strolls, a bikini top and flip flops for beachside adventures, and even a smart top and strappy heels for evenings out. Whilst mine only came in black, & Other Stories has upped the game with a versatile cream, sun-ready yellow, sky blue and seriously good purple. We’re already seeing this style of a-line skirts all over street style and Instagram, and in my experience, it’s a piece that will work hard year after year.
