Whilst I love skirts, the main problem is that they take more thought to wear than dresses, since you also have to coordinate them with a top. You could only imagine how happy I was to discover the rise of the two-for-one dress in which a skirt and a top are sneakily sewn together!
Miss Selfridge has a fabulous teal and black dress (£45) that features an on-trend ruffled top half and a pencil skirt bottom half. Also, the defined waist ensures that it's flattering. Do you think you'd be interested in buying a two-for-one dress?
