While we've all spent the last six months slinking around in endless incarnations of the humble silk slip, it's finally time to update our skirt repertoire via something a whole lot more pleated.
Worn similarly to the slip, you can pair the pleated midi with all manner of pieces. We're talking plain tees at work, cosy knits at the weekend and sexy simple camis of an evening... for a fussy-looking number they're remarkably simple.
