Rebecca Rose, StylistBy Rebecca Quigley
What do Blair Waldorf, Alicia Silverstone, Jackie Kennedy, CoCo Chanel and Kate Middleton all have in common? They have all harnessed the sartorial authority of the skirt suit. Sadly, despite its kick-ass credentials, the skirt suit has previously received some bad press over the last decade, and for many, it will call to mind visions of fusty politicians
Thanks to the recent return of the trouser suit, this traditional two-piece is seeing a revitalisation and the 2018 repetition is anything but boring.
From Clueless-inspired denim looks to chic checks and throwback tweeds, the new skirt suit comes in an overabundance of style personas. Also, due to the co-ordinating fabrics you will be pleased to see that it’s a super-easy trend to style.
As you may have probably noticed Clueless vibes are taking over this season, with yellow and black check print reigning supreme on the high street.
The trend is already in so many of the stores, with the flashy print spotted in the likes of Topshop and River Island. If yellow check print is a bit too bold for your liking, why not try Tai’s classic monochrome version from the movie.
A co-ordinating skirt and jacket is the classic way to wear this look, but you can also tone things down by mixing a check skirt with a turtleneck top or plain tee.
For a serious 90s vibe, the old shirt layered under a fine knit jumper will also work a treat – just leave the knee-high socks at home or you your look might be mistaken as fancy dress. It’s not Halloween just yet!!
I picked up my little skirt suit in Topshop but unfortunately it has completely sold out. There are still some sizes left which you can check out (Here).
Nevertheless I have found some other cute co-ord’s to feast your eyes upon. This only a small selection but as you surf the net you will see many many more variations of the coordinate!

Have you heard about the Newest Collaboration with H&M?
Well this autumn, the Swedish high street retailer H&M have tapped into another British print brand to inject some quintessential craftsmanship into its high-street bringing us an array of beautiful prints from the one and only Morris & Co.
For those of you who don’t know who William Morris is, he is a trained architect, turned to print designer and became known for his innovative designs which transformed the world of decorative arts.
As he rose to become a celebrated member of the Arts and Crafts Movement, he would begin to amass a vast archive of prints that designers still call upon for inspiration today.
Floral and animal prints most familiar in the world of interiors made their fashion debuts in this collection and includes strong tailoring in its jackets, coats and trousers but takes a more romantic approach with the dress and blouses. This stunning collection injects the perfect amount of country chic into your wardrobe for this autumn-winter and I must say I absolutely love it!
The Collection launched on October 4th and many of the pieces just flew out, however there are still some of the collection can still be picked up in-store and online – Here.
One of my favourite items from the collection was the WILLIAM MORRIS & CO. x H&M Maxi dress. It’s an airy, patterned, textured weave with a small stand-up collar, concealed buttons at the top and long sleeves with narrow elastic cuffs.
I wore this dress for the Athlone TownCentre #StyleSensation last weekend but got around to finally shooting the look on the beautiful grounds of Castle Leslie.
Happy Shopping Ladies
