I remember when I was all about the skater style. However, back then it was all about baggy t-shirts, giant wide-legged trousers and Carhartt backpacks. It was the look when we were 16 – I even had a necklace in the form of a dog chain from the local pet shop! HOT. However, my boyfriend had the same, so there we go.
Skater style these days is all about the skater skirt. There is nothing tomboyish about this look – it’s actually super girly. So get ready to get flirty with a flippy skirt and some ladylike accessories. Pair it with a blazer for a pulled-together pro look, team with cropped, embellished knitwear to enhance a small waist or throw on a slouchy oversize sweatshirt if you’re still grunge all at heart.
This tailored Oasis skirt in burgundy (the colour of the season) – is all about classy pleat detailing in a structured fabric. I’ll be wearing it with a pale grey angora knit and chunky statement necklace for simple elegance.
This Rare skirt is a great party piece for those in their 20s. Ditch the cheap belt and invest in a decent leopard-print ponyskin alternative and wear with a black long-sleeved scoop neck body, tights and mega heels. Top it off with a sparkly headpiece – seriously big news for A/W 2012.
This may be an expensive skirt, but the luxurious fabric and gorgeous apricot colour make it a must-have for winter. Cute and classy. Keep your other items of clothing simple in neutral tones to showcase this beauty.
