Ann Demeulemeester offers a modern twist on the classic black long skirt, crafted from wool and silk, softly draped over the hips, floor-length, flaring out at the bottom to form a sophisticated Morticia-like train. To be worn with a fitted leather jacket for a total black Christmas look. On the other hand, the ankle-length satin skirts by Maison Margiela come in classic party colours such as red, black and smoky grey. The sheath dress crafted from ribbed stretch cashmere by Rick Owens features deep side slits and is to be worn with cuissardes boots. Carolina Herrera's wide pleated silk skirt is super-glamorous, in bright colours such as electric blue, red and pink, for a sumptuous outfit of pure elegance, where the minimalism of a simple white shirt is enough to complete it. Tom Ford offers the party skirt par excellence- fully embellished with sequins, with a back slit, in black or neutral colours.
