When velvet hits the shops we know winter’s arrived, and this Jaeger velvet mini skirt is already on our wishlist. Not only does it have a contemporary design and shape, adding a new twist to a perennial favourite, but we especially love the colour which is an indulgent regal tone for the autumn/winter party season.

The high waist and pleated cut is flattering for all shapes and sizes, too – the waist highlights natural curves for an hourglass shape, and the lantern pleats create curves for boyish frames.

For work pair with a simple sheer blouse or printed silk shirt, opaques, black courts and pearls to ooze sophisticated office style, or for an evening, wear a lace camisole, platform heels and statement jewellery for a cool-classic look.

Jaeger’s skirt is ideal for any upcoming Christmas or New Year’s parties, too, so snap yours up quickly before you regret it.
