The workwear update: A utility skirt


It’s easy to think of utility as a purely functional trend, filled with clothes that are chic but in a useful, multi-pocketed way. But fashion’s latest crop of skirts take all the best bits of utility – neutral shades of biscuit, khaki green and navy, plus simple, fuss-free shapes – and give them a hefty dose of femininity. Whether you lean towards 3.1 Phillip Lim’s belted option or the narrow pleated style by Peter Do, they’re a shoo-in for your working wardrobe: smart enough for the boardroom, and chic with a pair of high heels or polished slip-ons and a blazer for after 5pm.
