Forget squad goals and squat goals our fashion fix for the weekend comes in the form of every woman’s wardrobe staple – the skirt. But, we aren’t speaking about any old ordinary skirt, the revamped and reconstructed garment of our street style dreams is the over-the-knee skirt. A garment that finely balances the line between effortless cool and chic professionalism taking you from board meetings to brunches in the lightweight brush of a gently distressed hemline. Here’s how to wear it for optimum effect.
Look for tastefully frayed textures and volumising effects such as fringing subdued into a colour palette that is timeless. Colours such as navy, beige and off-white appear in a multitude of innovative textile techniques for OTK skirts and can be worn paired with everything from formal shirts by daytime to leather jackets by night.
For those looking at hectic schedules that include high tea’s and lunch dates followed by evening cocktails there’s no better time to combine luxe textures such as tangerine suede with your favourite printed top for a jolt of colour. Keep a lookout for subtle details such as belt buckles and utilitarian pockets that add cool girl nonchalance.
Keep It Simple
It’s a known fact that our accessories can make or break any outfit. When dabbling in baubles for your OTK skirt opt for simple shapes and minimalist details for a fresh approach. Bags reminiscent of travel luggage from the Fifties in aged leather and matte crocodile will be a sure conversation starter wherever you go.
