At Apples & Pears Clothing we love a statement piece, whether it’s a showstopping dress in an inventive cut, a top with a scattering of sparkles or a skirt in a bold fabric. 

That said, every wardrobe needs a selection of brilliant basics for everyday wear that can be combined with bolder choices to create a whole host of looks. Think well cut black trousers, a crisp white shirt, a dress that’s so comfy it fills you with confidence, t-shirt tops for layering, and – obviously! - our much-loved leggings.  

Add to that list our new linen mix black skirt and you will find you are never short of outfit options. 

When Apples & Pears Allstar Amanda visited our HQ we thought we would put this skirt to the test. Read on to discover some of the combinations we came up with. 


Heading to the office? Couple our green ribbed top with this versatile midi skirt for a smart, professional look. Add a tailored jacket to take it to the next level. We love the added detail of the patterned neck scarf and chunky belt, completing the outfit. 



Super comfy, our grey t-shirt with v-neckline looks great with jeans and leggings, but for those days you when you are looking for a smart casual vibe it teams beautifully with a skirt too. Amanda added a jacket, scarf and ankle boots as well as our fringed tote bag for a fab everyday look. 






Bored of grey days? Need a mood boost? Then this yellow burnout top is sure to bring a smile to your face. Teamed with black it offers a real pop of colour and we love Amanda’s addition of a steampunk inspired hat. 







A beautiful black top is another brilliant basic worth adding to your wardrobe and our lattice front top is a great option as it has that extra detail to add interest. Here we have added our standout dusky pink bomber jacket showing just how well basics pair with bolder outfit choices to create a final look.  






You only have to look at this photo to see how comfy our salmon crinkle blouse is! The long sleeves make it perfect for the cooler months while the bold colouring adds interest. The top knots at the front, with a longer panel at the back – a cut that’s always popular with our customers.
