Fashion Made Easy: The Statement Skirt

16 When you think of statement style, ‘Boden’ is rarely the first place you think of, but with their new ‘Boden Icons’ piece, the game is definitely being changed.

Boden Icons Statement Skirt

Comprising 16 key, beautifully cut pieces, not only are they stunning, the high-quality fabrics mark a return to ‘investment fashion’, buying pieces for longevity, not season-to-season.

We’re utterly in love with the ‘Rita’ skirt, £200.  A demure-but-inviting split-front A-line marries vintage embroidery, with a boho-meets-military style.  It’s made of high-quality Italian wool, so will work year-round and hold it’s shape and style for years to come.

We’ve paired it with for glamour with a pair of strappy Marc Cain sandals, £265 but it works just as well with a pair or chunky loafers or pretty boots.

This Oscar De La Renta Stretched Cotton-Twill top, £470.85 is the perfect colour for this summer, but if the cut isn’t your thing, try a simply-cut semi-sheer blouse in a similar shade.

The point of a statement skirt is that it stands out.  With that in mind keep jewellery simple.  We like these chunky Kenneth Jay Lane Stone hoops, £60
