A 90s slip skirt and a cosy jumper is a match made in sartorial heaven

There’s no denying the extreme 90s presence in current trends (and trends to come in 2019) that have crept from catwalks into the high-street. But one of the biggest nostalgic successes of the 90s is the slip skirt.


Have you forgotten about the simple joy of a skirt and jumper? It’s the ultimate style juxtaposition: the most basic of autumnal wardrobe necessities (a cosy sweater), paired with the sexiest (slip skirts).  Slip skirts are a very big deal right now; amping up the sexy vibe enough to bring your vintage, grandad-style cardi straight into 2019.

The way to wear a high-street favourite slip skirt is with oversized mohair sweaters, delicate cashmere pullovers and cropped drop-shoulder cardigans. If the thought of a drafty breeze is hindering your decision-making, a pair of matt tights by Falke or a pair of hidden legging shorts will keep you toasty beneath delicate silk (as well as preventing your underwear from slipping past the point of no return).

And for your choice of footwear? A pair of Nike or Adidas will amplify the contrast between sporty and sexy even further. But for nighttime, a classic black ankle boot will inject a perfect balance of sensual femininity. A simple (or not so simple, in some cases) slip skirt has transformative powers and here are ten styles to prove it.
