Fully Lined Flared Skirt from the M&S Collection at M&S – £25 – Available from UK8 – UK20

The Flared Skirt is going to feature strongly in the forthcoming AW14 season and continue into SS15 as well.  Therefore, when I saw this skirt from the M&S Collection at Marks & Spencer I felt compelled to include it in my ‘Wardrobe Staples’.

This skirt is fully lined and is available from a UK6 – UK20.  I think it is particularly good value at £25 and therefore a skirt that you will get loads of wear out of.  I am wearing size UK18.  I am 5’9″ tall and as you can see the skirt is sitting just slightly below my knee area.  This skirt is therefore a suitable length for your ‘day wear’ or ‘work wear’ wardrobe.  It is a professional cut!

I am glad to see the flared skirt making a return.  It definitely will make a ‘statement impact’ as a trend going forward from Autumn/Winter 2014 into Spring/Summer 2015.  This skirt is a standard black flare cut.  It is not over exaggerated.  It is simple and easy to wear and will suit the curvy woman.

There is a certain vintage appeal to this style of skirt.  It is also simple to style. You can wear any blouse or fine knit top with this skirt.  The waist area on this skirt does not have a defined waistband so this also means that you can wear blouses/tops that sit out over the top of the skirt and not have the added bulk that sometimes happens with thick set waistbands.

In this picture I have styled my look for a simple ‘day wear’ or ‘work wear’ look AND I am wearing a lower block heel style shoe for all day comfort.  This skirt however can be ‘glammed up’ for a more dressier look and also looks fantastic with higher heels.  There is just something special about the swish and sway of a flared skirt when you walk.  You can walk tall and be more in command of your step in this style of skirt.

Below is a picture of me wearing this skirt for a smarter dressier occasion.  My blouse has a waistband and therefore needs to sit out over a skirt or trousers.  I think that it sits well with this skirt.  As there is not a defined waistband on the skirt there is not the added bulk of the waistband AND the band of the blouse to contend with.
