The dress seems to have dominated our wardrobes for so long now that the return of the skirt and blouse combo suddenly looks surprisingly fresh. We thought we'd give you a selection today, including this vintage-glam combination of metallic gold blouse by Laura for Topshop with a navy and stone patterned skirt (above).
We love the skirt-blouse look because it's ladylike, easy to wear and makes you feel instantly 'done'. Its also perfect in terms of weight and layerability to carry you through from late summer to autumn. Go for the silk-collared Topshop top above for a casual look...
...or this silk River Island blouse with mismatched vintage buttons, cinched in with a wide waist-belt for a touch of 50s charm.
Fed up of pattern? Try this box-pleated navy skirt by Kew, paired with a turquoise-and-white striped blouse by Zara.
So there you have it. The skirt and blouse: your trans-seasonal wardrobe sorted by My Swish.
