Steep vs. Cheap: Pink mini skirt

steep-v-cheap-pink-mini-skirtIf you failed to get your hands on this season’s must-have pink coat, then surely a pink skirt should do the trick, right? Let your love affair with Barbie’s favourite shade of ice-cream take on a new guise with this week’s Steep vs. Cheap picks.

A mini, in any colour or cut, is an absolute wardrobe essential. And, when paired with the right accessories, can make for very worthy, all-season investment. Helping you to amp up the colour credentials of your winter wardrobe with a pop of bubblegum pink, we’ve trawled the interwebs to bring you the cutest skirts at either end of the budget spectrum.

Coming in at the steep end this week is the Valentino A-line wool and silk-blend mini skirt (£430). Perfect paired with an evening top, heels and a small cross-body for post-work cocktails; or with chunky tights, Chelsea boots and the cosiest knit for day, you’re guaranteed to get your wear out of this little power-packer. If you’ve the cash to spare, don’t delay slipping into this pretty pink number!

But, if the prospect of forking out £430 is a little frightening (of course it is!), then why not do it on the cheap? Head to ASOS, and pick up the A-line ponte mini skirt (£18) for a fraction of the price! Teamed with a graphic knit and flats, we’re digging this pocket-friendly mini for a casual Friday work look that says calorie-free sugar rush.

Will you splurge or save?

Steep: Valentino wool and silk-blend mini skirt, £430, available My Theresa.

Cheap: A-line ponte mini skirt, £18, available at ASOS.


  1. I love anything pink and these skirt options are no exception. I actually saw a similar one at Forever 21 a couple weeks ago that had been marked down to $8! Didn’t have my size though :-(

  2. I LOVE that shade of pink! What a great deal getting that pretty skirt at Asos for only £18 ! I also love the floral lace blouse the pretty pink Valentino skirt is styled with. I wonder whether Asos might have a similar short sleeve white floral print blouse available to go with their lovely A-line ponte mini-skirt?
    What a great deal!
