Our High-Street Contacts Tell Us These Co-Ords Are Selling Like Crazy

What do Blair Waldorf, Jackie Kennedy, Coco Chanel and Kate Middleton have in common? They have all harnessed the sartorial authority of the skirt suit. Sadly, despite its kick-ass credentials, the skirt suit has received bad press over the last decade, and for many, it will call to mind visions of fusty politicians and hat-clad royals (the queen is a huge fan).

However, thanks to the recent return of the trouser suit, this traditional two-piece is seeing a renaissance, and the 2018 iteration is anything but boring. From Clueless-inspired denim looks and corduroy-clad numbers to chic checks and throwback tweeds, the new skirt suit comes in a plethora of style personas. Also, due to the co-ordinating fabrics, it's a super-easy trend to style.

However you decide to wear it, a skirt suit will always look pulled-together (sometimes all it needs is a plain white tee and ankle boots to make an impact). Want to see how the fashion crowd wears theirs? Scroll down to see our edit of the best skirt suit looks and products.
