Destined for summer days, this beautiful ballet-inspired maxi skirt will bring a touch of grace to every wardrobe, says M&S.com womenswear editor, Charlene Barton.
As soon as I saw this skirt I knew it had to be an Editor’s Pick. Whether you grew up poised and en pointe at ballet class or have always envisioned yourself sashaying down 5th Avenue à la Carrie Bradshaw (minus the iconic bus/puddle mishap), there’s something about a tulle skirt that makes getting dressed that bit more special. No longer reserved for the barre, it’s proof that fashion can be fun – the challenge simply lies in making it relevant. For lazy summer days, keep it understated with a sleek camisole, neutral pumps and barely there make-up, or take on the season’s favourite silhouette by pairing it with a pastel sweater and delicate strappy sandals for evening. Whatever the occasion, you’ll instantly feel lighter, more feminine and ready to pirouette your way out the door.
