Our Marissa trousers made from bengaline fabric are one of our most popular items, so we figured it would be great to make skirts using the same fabric. The best thing about this fabric is that it's woven but very stretchy which provides a tailored look with a comfortable fit.
The Riley Skirt has the shape of a pencil skirt but is finished off with a beautiful frill hem for that extra shape and movement. We've used elastic in the waistband so you don't need to worry about zips or buttons and you get the extra comfort of a stretchy waistband but it sits nice and flat along the body so it doesn't look like an elastic waistband.
This skirt will fit perfectly into your work wardrobe but will feel as comfortable as your weekend clothing. This floral print is slightly abstract so from a distance it isn't obvious it's floral. With a black base and a tan print you will find there are so many colours that will go with this skirt because of its neutral colour palette. In this picture we've paired it with a burgundy satin shirt to show how easy it is to make a work outfit.
