How to style an A-line skirt

The A-line skirt is staying around for A/W 15 and I’m very happy about it.

Mini, knee-length, midi, plain, button-up, scallop-edge, patchwork, whatever your taste there is an A-line skirt to suit.

This pale blue suede with pocket detailing from Nasty Gal is adorable and the styling with high wedges is really cute (although not autumn weather appropriate!)

Many celebrities have embraced this style such as Marina Dimandis (AKA Marina and the Diamonds) who was styled in a slightly flared black skirt for Vogue.

While connoisseur of cool Alexa Chung has also been championing the A-line.

Here’s some inspiration on how to wear it:

While the denim a-line was popular for summer, suede and patchwork variations will be everywhere this autumn.

Suede tends to be an expensive material, however you can find suedette versions of these skirts also.

The patchwork style looks best in muted autumnal colours like this Topshop skirt.

It’s best worn with a plain top or a dark denim shirt.

Asos, as usual, has the most fashion-forward and unusual styles. For instance, I wasn’t expecting to see camouflage ever again but I was wrong…

This contrast stitch mini-skirt is really funky also.

If the button-up styles don’t appeal to you, there are many plain and zip front styles available on Asos also.

The majority of these styles can be worn with black tights and it’s also easy to transition from day to night.

In the daytime, an A-line skirt looks cute with brogues, tights and a plain t-shirt/blouse.

To dress this style up, simply add heels and jewellery.

A-line skirts are also flattering on and compliment different body types which makes them so popular.
