Frugal buy: Next faux leather skirt

Sunglasses: Valentino. Top: H+M. Skirt: £38, Next. Sandals: reduced to £49, Kurt Geiger

So midis are here to stay. And so is leather. When I saw this skirt at the press day, I couldn't actually believe they were selling leather for under £40. I found out it was faux and I was even more astonished: it looks and feels perfect.


Skirt, £38, Next

Too hot to wear now? Just add sliders until it's cold enough to pair with heeled boots. My KG ones are in the sale for £49 (someone asked me if they were Prada last week):

This would make the perfect workwear skirt, too - just pair with a Boden cashmere or a Gap crisp shirt:

  3. Fabulous find, the skirt hangs beautifully loving the idea of it in the winter with high boots (would look so gorgeously 70s) it looks great on you x think I may need one in my life x

    1. It does not feel like faux leather at all, and hangs really well (not clingy - the dream)

  7. Just discovered your blog - love it! a great browse when i'm procrastinating, erm I mean having a 'thinking' break. You're woman of impeccable taste. The Next skirt looks great - how does it fit? true to size on the waist? or is it better sized up and sitting on the hips?

    1. I am wearing a size up here, as I prefer it hanging lower and gliding over the tummy rather than clinging! Thank you for your lovely comments x
