This is the one skirt to invest in this season, according to Instagram

  • Marie Claire is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn commission on some of the items you choose to buy.
  • When it comes to autumn trends, it can be tricky to know which one to invest in, especially when there are so many great options from the catwalk.

    So for me, there’s no better place than Instagram to see which ones make the cut IRL, and yes, that means what fashion influencers and editors are adopting.

    And whilst I’ve seen plenty of great kitten heels and chic camel coats, the one item of clothing everyone unanimously agrees on this season is actually a skirt. But not any skirt, the silk/satin midi skirt.

    It all started this summer with the Realisation Par leopard print skirt, and snowballed from there. The good news is that if you invested in a similar leopard print number then, you can still wear it now.

    As for the simple option, whilst crams and pastel pinks were perfect for the hotter months, they’ve now paved the way for richer tones of burgundys and browns for the colder months (see the Topshop skirt which sold out within days).

    The high-street, including Tophop, & Other Stories and believe it or not, Boohoo, have some great budget friendly options, or if you want slightly more premium quality, look to Anine Bing, alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet and Vince. Keep scrolling for my favourite buys.

    In terms of styling, team the skirt with an oversized knit and cowboys boots during the day, and a silk shirt and kitten mules at night.
