The flattering M&S skirt that we’re going to be living in for the next few weeks

Midi skirts have become one of our go-to wardrobe staples this year.

They’re stylish. They’re super flattering. They’re also a great alternative when we’re absolutely sick to death of wearing tights (or when you’re not quite ready to break the tights out yet).

Which makes them the perfect piece to carry our wardrobe through the seasons.

From Topshop to New Look, many retailers have already released their own take on the trend – and we’ve fallen in love with this one from M&S.

The velvet animal print pleated midi skirt ticks so many boxes for us – and, honestly, it looks so much more expensive than its €42 price tag.

We reckon you could pair it with a tee, a biker jacket and a pair of trainers for a comfy (but stylish) weekend look.

Or maybe with a comfy knit, a camisole and a cute pair of ankle boots for heading into the office – there are so many possibilities.

“Channel this season’s animal print trend in this velvety pleated skirt. Loose, floaty fit for comfort as well as style,” the retailer said of the piece.

They added that while the asymmetric hem “gives it an elegantly bohemian feel”,the velvet pattern adds a touch of drama.

The slip skirt also has a shorter underskirt that’s visible through the animal print.
