As the leaves turn brown and the chilly winter wind freezes our SB tootsies, there is no mistaking that the impressively long Scottish summer has well and truly disappeared. But, do not fear fellow fashion lovers, with a change in season comes a change in style and us icy Scottish Bitches favour Autumn/Winter.
A season for extravagance, statement coats, tailored layering and texture clashes, the A/W showcases for 2014-2015 certainly did not disappoint. Following on from the S/S styles of Mulberry and Ralph Lauren, retro-cool is here to stay with designers such as Channel, Louis Vuitton and Christopher Kane embracing the prints and cuts of the Swinging Sixties in their A/W collections.
Always a fan of 1960s, this week's crush of the week is none other than Matalan's sixties inspired A-line skirt.
Priced at only £14.00 this diverse piece is a must have for your winter wardrobe. Available in both camel and monochrome, as seen above, this skirt can suit for many different occasions and is very on trend. Indeed, camel is 'the colour' to wear this season with designers such as DKNY and DAKS.

Though, technically, a trend driven piece the sixties inspired cut of this smart skirt is, in many ways, timeless. Vintage and vintage inspired pieces are almost always in style and, items like this, act as a useful wardrobe staple.
Although short in cut, this piece could be worn for an occasion or in the office if teamed with tights. It could be matched with a sheer or silk shirt or, if you want to fully embrace the sixties trend, this piece would match perfectly with a polo necked top or jumper. Personally, I would wear either skirt with a black polo neck, brogues and a boyfriend jacket.
Whether you are looking for a work wardrobe staple or a stylish item, this skirt really is a steal. Naturally with a low price tag, the polyester piece may not be of the highest quality but if there is any time to rock the Twiggy mini skirt, it's now.
What do you think of Matalan's A-line skirt? How would you wear it?
Live by the catwalk, die by the donut.
