Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

Cold-weather dressing doesn’t have to be boring. Look ahead to spring and brighten up your look and mood with this beautiful skirt from Limited Edition

If there’s one wardrobe item that has style stardom written all over it, it’s the pleated midi skirt. With a definite air of Carrie Bradshaw, the original queen of street style, this elegant piece has enjoyed a full-scale revival from starchy school uniform to a bona fide fashion hit. And it isn’t going anywhere. Now a permanent fixture in the modern woman’s sartorial repertoire, consider it as versatile as a pair of black trousers. Give this lined mesh version a smart touch with a white shirt and heels, or dress it down with a knit and loafers (add tights and a tailored coat to beat the chill) for a look that says contemporary chic in an instant. Plus, pink is a trend all of its own for spring. Look out for the grey version, too – both get our seal of approval.
