John Lewis & Partners is our go-to when it comes to a reliable wardrobe staple – and it appears that we’re not alone. One particular piece from the brand’s S/S19 collection has been leaving stores in double-quick time, thanks to its flattering fit and range of colours.
The on-trend pleated midi skirt is available in three bright and beautiful colour combos: blue and navy, rose and raspberry and black and mustard, and customers have been loving all three.
In fact, a spokesperson for John Lewis confirmed to Woman & Home that the skirt is currently one of the shop’s bestselling fashion items.
‘Our gorgeous midi skirt meshes contemporary colour block detailing with traditional pleat styling, offering an alternative to skinnies from our John Lewis & Partners collection,’ the website elaborates.
‘Designed in a subtle A-line shape for a defined silhouette, the contrast colour panels also contrast in pleat width – narrow on one colour palette and wide the other – adding character as well as a slight density to the fabric that gives it a bit of a kick as you move.’
The versatility of the skirt is demonstrated by the styling of the piece on the product listing – whether you aim for elegance with a camisole and oversized earrings, dress the piece down with a tonal sweater and trainers or go full summer with chunky sandals, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
And the most attractive thing about the skirt? The price – a reasonable £65 for a quality midi that you’ll wear again and again. At the time of writing, it’s still in stock on the John Lewis & Partners website in sizes 8-20 – but based on sales so far, we think you’ll want to pick up yours sooner rather than later…
