The one thing that our readers keep asking us about this month is how to assemble the perfect spring capsule wardrobe — and I’ve just found a £69 skirt that you should start off with. According to Google, searches for pleated skirts have increased by 60% this year, and at fashion week we kept seeing editors wearing calf-length skirts with a super defined pleat. There is one that really rises above the rest however and will prove one of the most useful items you can own this summer— a cream pleated midi that falls just above the ankle from Arket.

This is one of those clever stealth fashion items, that although seems simple and perhaps even a little boring, will always make you look put together. Influencer Brittany Bathgate is the queen of elevated basics, and she has been wearing this cream midi non-stop this month, proving it can be really versatile. She’s worn it with chunky dad trainers, a khaki utility jacket, socks and loafers, and a striped mens shirt. Keep scrolling to see how she has been wearing the skirt — and shop it below.

Style Notes: We love how the skirt looks with a green utility shirt and black loafers.
Style Notes: Add an oversized shirt for a more relaxed feel — or swap for a cami when the weather turns.
Style Notes: Brittany toughens up the skirt with a pair of chunky Dad trainers.
