Say hello to the crazy flattering midi skirt that everyone will be wearing this season.

We’d like to interrupt your day for just one moment with a public service announcement: Cotton On has released another must-have skirt and you’re going to want to own it immediately.

Sorry, but it’s the truth. I would know because… I already went out and bought one.

Just before Christmas, the brand released their version of the silky, slip midi skirt everyone you know has been wearing. The Woven Belle Bias Midi Skirt, which came in nine different colours and prints and had a price tag of $35, promptly sold out (although there are some varieties left in limited sizes).

If you missed out on one of those skirts, or you’re in the market for a new one, you’ll love the new style Cotton On released this week.

It’s called the Woven Daria Pleated Midi Skirt and it’ll cost you $39.99.

She comes in EIGHT different colours and prints - zig zagsilver metallic, orange and navy stripesgeometric green and pinkneon leopard, geometric red and burgundy, black and zebra print - sizing from XXS to XXL. When I went in-store, there was also a black and gold metallic version that'd be great for a night out.

The A-line pleated style suits everybody (and every BODY), with an elasticised high-waisted band that cinches in the waist and a hemline that finishes at the perfect spot between your knee and ankle. A stretchy waistband is also really considerate of how much space your stomach needs to expand after eating brunch/dinner/snacks. This skirt will work with you, not against you - I found I was able to go down a size as the flowy silhouette doesn't cling to your thighs and hips.

The fabric is designed to be sheer at the bottom. If you're worried about see through-ness, wear it with your flesh coloured undies. Depending on which pattern you're drawn to, the Woven Daria Pleated Midi Skirt can be styled for the office with a blazer and heels, a night out with a silk cami or brunch/everyday with a slogan t-shirt and sneakers.

Basically, it's the perfect chuck-on skirt and I plan to race you for one in every colour before they sell out.
