Thanks to Prada and Jacquemus, one of the early noughties' biggest trends is back. Yep, it's time to dust off your straight maxi skirts.

First seen on the SS21 catwalks back in September, they're about to become your new wardrobe staple for the new season.

As far as styling goes, fret not, it's not too far from how you wore them the first time round. At Jacquemus, models paired simple linen skirts with cropped shirts, while at Prada they wore them with feminine blouses.

The skirt looks great worn with heels for a dressier look, however I'm loving how it looks with chunky flip flops or platform sandals for that true 00s feel. If you're feeling truly nostalgic, pair it with a silky scarf top or buttoned up cardigan.

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
