With warmer weather just around the corner, now’s the time to crack out your favourite spring styling pieces. Start things off with our edit of the best slip skirts, featuring pieces from Olivia Von Halle, RIXO and MaisonCléo.

Slip Skirts are the New Spring Staple

As expected, skirts are making a triumphant return for SS22. Whether long, short, colour-blocked or patterned, they’re set to trend throughout the season (and most likely the next).

Taking to the runway with slip skirts at the ready are the likes of RIXO and MaisonCléo, which show that these transitional pieces can be worn from day to night, on the beach, in the club and on the streets. Simply partner up your slips with some sandals (or trainers, if you want a bit more comfort), a handbag and sunglasses, and you’re good to go.

You can shop our edit of the best slip skirts below, but before you shop make sure you don’t have something you can use at home. While we’re all for exploring what’s new at our favourite boutiques, we must remember to be mindful of the planet. With many trends the product of style recycling, it’s easy to instead try digging around the back of your wardrobe for your next obsession. Alternatively, try sourcing from rental and resale sites.

Slip these on for size…
