Get Abbey Clancy’s Cool Casual Maxi Skirt Style

As one of the highest profile WAGs in the UK, Abbey Clancy has it all, a rich husband, a thriving modelling and presenting career, a gorgeous new baby girl and the ability to make any outfit look a million dollars.

For a recent shopping trip, Abbey stepped out in a gorgeous long black maxi skirt and black tank top and blazer. This yummy mummy only gave birth 4 months ago, and while some mums may sacrifice looking stylish as they struggle to juggle new roles, Abbey looks incredible.

The 25 year old Liverpudlian’s style is modern, sassy and ultra feminine and she always dresses appropriately for an occasion.  For the shopping trip, cool but casual was in order and a maxi skirt is a great way to start building that look. Here’s a closer shot:

Currently, Abbey is doing presenting stints for ITV show ‘This Morning’ and Very can reveal we’re going to see a lot more of the stunning star on our TV screens. Like fellow WAG Coleen Rooney, Abbey desperately wants her own fashion TV show.

She co-hosted E4’s search for Britain’s Top Hairdresser alongside Kate Moss’s hairdresser James Brown and now she is in talks with the channel about taking her presenting skills to the next level with a show subject she is passionate about – fashion!

Abbey deserves to do well as she’s got a natural ability to mix and match pieces, just how she did for her shopping trip.

If you’d like a cool, causal outfit for a relaxed weekend day then take inspiration from Abbey and start with a flattering maxi skirt. The South crinkle maxi skirt from Very will help you look laidback and like you haven’t tried too hard but it’s cut to flow out over your hips and have a slimming effect – bonus!

To add some extra interest to the skirt, try a print. The Ringspun Alexis maxi skirt’s print is subtle so you still look effortlessly cool

Then add a simple Love Label longline vest, which is a bargain as you can get a 3 pack for just £8

Now you need a classic black jacket and you can’t go wrong with leather. The Ted Baker brata leather biker jacket can be worn with jeans or short skirts as well as maxi skirts – it’s so versatile

If you’re wearing the maxi skirt for a day of errands then you need some simple but stylish flats like the South Rookwood gladiator sandals, which are now a bargain at £8.50 instead of £22

Hopefully Abbey will get her TV show soon. She deserves it!
