main skirts

Working ladies, this one’s for you!

We know the importance of making your wardrobe stretch to that extra event, and, well, the most important event of the week has to be post-work drinks on a Friday evening, right?

Well, instead of carrying an extra change of clothes, the easiest way to get into work-free mode past 5pm is to slip into one statement piece for the day, which you can easily formalise for work, and take straight to the bar afterwards.

OK, so we’re not talking about turning up to work ready for a night out, but a casual skirt thrown into the sartorial mix will prove a game changer come Friday evening.

Check out our pick of five super-stylish spring skirts all under £20 (that’s more dosh for drinks), that’ll instantly transport you from behind the Mac to sitting in front of a margarita in no time!
