CULT BUY: Exactly where you can buy the skirt everyone will be wearing this summer.

It’s fair to say 90s inspired aesthetic and slip dresses have been seared into the fashion consciousness.

Luckily, the go-to skirt you’ll be seeing everywhere this summer ticks both those boxes.

Say hello to the silk slip midi skirt, because every influencer, fashion fan, blogger and celeb worth their hashtags will be wearing it this summer.

Cool girl brand, Realisation Par, can be credited as one of the first brands to jump on the trend, with their bias cut (when the material is cut to sit close to the body), leopard-print number becoming an instant sell out.

Other brands soon jumped on board.

How do I wear a silk midi skirt?

Worn dressed up or down, for the office, or for a wedding, you can easily start wearing this summer-staple-to-be during the last weeks of winter - and start lowering that cost per wear figure.

While it's still a bit chilly, pair your slip skirt with a warm knit, or keep your top half toasty by layering a turtleneck with a leather jacket or blazer.

Then, when the mercury rises, simply switch out the heavier layers for a t-shirt, cami or any top of your choosing, and you have a 'no-brains-needed throw on outfit'.

Now, where does one buy a silk midi skirt?
