A denim skirt is a loyal wardrobe companion and shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to your summer look. It's a trusty staple you’ll not only wear daily round the city but you also wouldn’t go on holiday without. For me, it's got to be the raw-edge denim version this season, simply, because it oozes way more personality. It's like when you read a book, if the pages are a little tatty it just tells a much better story.
Despite, literally, being rough around the edges, this take on denim is way more versatile than you think. Opt for slim-fit pencil shapes, such as the MIH button down midi, for a super-sophisticated day-to-night look. Team with pointed flats and a crisp white shirt - plus the pencil skirt will make your bum look so good... trust me!

If you’re brave enough then definitely go for a mini raw-edge skirt. I was dubious about this length, considering I don’t have Alexa Chung’s legs, but after trying on a couple, I found that both Zara and Topshop have styles that were super-flattering and I haven’t stopped wearing them since. With breton stripe jumpers, plain grey t-shirts and, even with oversized shirts that can be tucked in, they quite literally go with everything.
