24 Of The Best And Prettiest Long Skirts

Whether midi or maxi, these are the skirts we’ve fallen hard for this season.

The items in our wardrobes that manage, miraculously, to be comfy, slouchy and elegant are not only the holy grail of our shopping expeditions, but the ones we return to again and again, wearing them day in, day out. The longer skirt is just such an item. We love that we can pair them with old favourite loosely tucked T-shirts, puffy sleeved blouses for a prairie chic take, a very a simple boat-neck black tops for a streamlined look, or an oversized chunky-knit jumper and woolly tights and boots as the weather cools. They are, then, the ultimate in versatile pieces. Plus, with many of our edit featuring wide elasticated waists, they’re even easier to wear than ever. But do be quick – a good handful of these are in the sale and will be gone in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.
