Shopping For: The Flattering Below the Knee Skirt

Below the knee skirts

1. Suno embroidered skirt at Net-A-Porter and Net-A-Porter USA

2. Wrap halter top at Warehouse (also available in raspberry pink)

3. Cat eye sunglasses at ASOS and ASOS USA

4. Mid-heel sandals at Topshop and Topshop USA

5. Tom Ford lipstick in ‘Paradiso’ and Tom Ford nail polish in ‘Indiscretion’

6. Sophie Hulme leather tote at Net-A-Porter and Net-A-Porter USA

7. Jardin print sweatshirt at Topshop and Topshop USA

Now that spring has arrived I’ve picked up a sudden obsession with below the knee skirts, and Suno’s embellished design is currently at the top of my wish list. Although it’s very much on trend for spring 2014, it has that special ‘love me forever’ vibe, and is definitely a worthy wardrobe investment. For day I’d pair it with a sporty sweater and oversized sunglasses, then in the evening I’d add Warehouse’s navy halter top to the mix and accessorise with gold jewellery.

If you’re looking for a more affordable spring buy – but still want something that feels special – make sure you check out the new SS14 Tom Ford lip and nail colours. And £36 and £26 respectively they’re not exactly cheap (compared to both drugstore and other high end brands), but boy do they feel luxurious! I’m loving with the coral pink lip colours, with ‘Paradiso’ and ‘Summer Fling’ coming in as firm favourites.
