We’re officially in the thick of winter—a time when cosy, warm coats are in heavy rotation, but our hearts and minds are looking forward to warmer days ahead. There’s no better way to get out of a winter rut and stay ahead of the fashion curve right now than by investing in a sleek silk or satin skirt. Easy to layer up with tights or leggings, come spring, your skirt collection will be ready to thrive on its own. What’s more, the sumptuously smooth garment feels dressier than your average pair of jeans or trousers, but still has enough versatility to be dressed up or down. Pair one with a perfectly understated white T-shirt and trainers for a chic smart-casual moment. Or breathe new life into your office wardrobe by styling a satin skirt with your go-to blazer and pumps.
Take notes from models and celebs like Elsa Hosk and Angelina Jolie. Hosk made the silky number seasonally appropriate with a leather moto jacket and boots, while Jolie gave way to the soft texture, mixing movement with a timeless collection of all-black knits and silks.
If you’re looking for more ways to modernise the wardrobe staple, take cues from the spring 2023 runways, where models in 16Arlington and Anna October’s show wore silky skirts low-slung with body-hugging tops and bustiers.
