Remember the animal print Realisation Par midi skirt that spawned a thousand high street dupes? There was a period back in 2018 when you could barely move for a slinky little leopard print number, and now the slip skirt trend has come back around, albeit in a less uniform manner.
This year’s take on the slip skirt features a rainbow of neon bright colours and a kaleidoscope of vibrant prints, as well as elegant, subtle versions in cream, navy and champagne. Basically, whatever your taste, there’s a slip skirt for you, and we’ve noticed them popping up in the windows of every high street store this summer.
The slip skirt is a brilliant summer to winter piece – you can wear it with strappy tops and sandals while the weather is hot, and switch for chunky jumpers and ankle boots once it gets colder.
Made from thin fabrics such as silk and satin, slip skirts are often cut on the bias for a flattering, hip-skimming effect. This means you have to think carefully about which underwear to wear underneath, although there are plenty of options, from a non-VPL thong to big old shaping knickers.
As for where to buy one, there are a huge range of shops stocking slip skirts right now, but we’ve whittled down our favourite picks to make life easier for you.
