You already know I’m a fan of Damart (the British company famous for their thermal range) because the brand has stayed true to its roots (eg there are still the thermals and classic pieces), while introducing some more fashion forward pieces that are still wearable – important for both new and existing customers. My favourite piece from the Damart SS14 collection is this black and white Milano skirt (even the names is chic); it sits high on the waist and has plenty of stretch. For once, I wore a pencil skirt without the embarrassment of trying to extract myself from the car while restricted at the knees! There’s also no risk of the Tiny Step Walk (you know, when your pencil skirt is so tight you can’t walk with a normal stride), and you can wear this skirt almost anywhere: to work with a blazer, to dinner with a black, white or red camisole and even on your summer hols. Oh, and it’s twenty five quid. What’s not to love?
