The Full Skirt

This is skirt shape of the season and - yes – it can be flattering. Just be careful to choose a length that doesn’t hit your calf at the widest point – always wear above or below. Great for giving you a waist and hiding any wobbly bits around your tummy.

Pleated skirt, £45,

Light and airy chiffon pleats were a huge look on the S/S14 catwalks by designers such as Victoria Beckham and Proenza Schouler. The look has trickled down to the high street- we’re loving this lipstick red number.

Textured skirt, £40,

If you’re worried about pleats and folds making your tummy look bigger, this skirt has a deep waistband that cleverly slims your silhouette, making your waist and hips appear narrower.

Skirt, £30,

If you’re a devotee of the pencil skirt and crave something more tailored, choose a hybrid– this version with kick pleats marries the two styles. Perfect for your knock ‘em dead back to work outfit.

The Loafer

This spring heralds the return of the loafer. They’re ideal for mums on the go who need something flat and comfortable, and are a sharper alternative to the ballet pump.

Shoe, £75,

Wear these cool and chunky classic brown loafers with slouchy boyfriend jeans and a Breton tee for low-key mama style.

Gold, £59,

Flat enough for comfort, yet the metallic hue makes these a perfect day to night choice that will add glamorous edge to any outfit.

Black, £32,

Everyone should own a pair of black loafers and these suede flats will add a preppy feel to your look at an affordable price.
