Move Over Satin Slip Skirts, There's A New 'IT' Skirt For 2020

Just pleat it.

If 2019 is going to be remembered for anything, it should be the satin slip skirt. 

It's no secret that slip skirts have slowly but surely taken over the world, and by the world, we mean our Instagram feed. The trend first emerged back Autumn 2018 and since then, it's gone on to prove that no one (not even Meghan Markle) can resist the power of a satin slip midi skirt.

Not only does a slip skirt give you designer-esque feels but it also gives you that feeling of wearing pyjamas to work without being 'too' high fashion and receiving judgy looks off Sandra in accounts. They also go with absolutely everything. Seriously, name a piece of clothing and we guarantee it'll work with a slip skirt. Jumpers? mmhmm. Roll necks? most definitely. Band tees? duh. Cardigans? you betcha. Kitten heels? go for it.  

And while slip skirts still very much have a presence on Instagram (insta-cool-girls have literally not stopped wearing them), it seems as though there's a new skirt coming to take over our feeds. Meet the pleated midi skirt.

Granted, it's a style that has done the rounds before but with the weather being the definition of fickle, the pleated midi skirt is the perfect transitional item. Just like its rival, a pleated midi skirt will go with everything in your wardrobe: jumpers, tees, blazers, runners, boots, heels. Name it, it'll go with it. It also shares a further similarity in the fact that it's a style that suits literally every.body. They tend to have an elasticated high-waist that automatically cinches your waist. It also has a hemline that stops at the perfect spot between your knee and ankle which gives you that long legs effect. This is a skirt that will work for you, not against you.
