3 Ways To Wear Your Old School Skirt That You Should Really Consider

by Lucy Morris |

Tartan in all its marvellous myriad of ways has been modernised for spring. After a few seasons fighting gingham for the spring/summer spotlight, it's made a play for SS18 and won. It's most classical rendition, the kilt has been its secret trump card.

In the hands of labels like Gucci, Versace, Le Kilt and JW Anderson, along with high street favourites like Topshop and Zara, this classic school skirt has mutated into something new. It's been pinched, spliced and diced into a new signpost for anarchism. It's tradition with a twist, it's Highland heritage with a dose of attitude. At this current sartorial juncture, mixing it with bovver boots and streetwear is a fast-track to mastering this zeitgeist.

The Tuck-In

Surely you've heard of the half-tuck by now. Most commonly it's seen with an oversized over-starched shirt, but here's a fun twist: try it with a blazer. Make that midi-skirt work with XL tailoring by adding a belt and a pair of calf-height boots.
