Trend How-To: The Split Skirt

As always, I am dreaming of summer whilst freezing cold clutching my cup of tea. As such I am dreaming of the days when I can bare my legs and not suffer the risk of frostbite.

This summer the key skirt style to snap up is the split skirt- subtle, sexy and oh-so flattering. I am particularly loving the asymmetrical wrap style that Dion Lee has done to absolute perfection, but there are many different styles, lengths and cuts available to suit most body types.

Wear this trend with a simple tank or tight tee to keep the skirt as the statement piece. Make your outfit street style ready with a pair of simple strap shoes and a statement bag and voila! You are ready for Tommy Ton’s lens.
