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!
