Kate Garraway tries out this season's biggest trend in high street skirt

Kate Garraway

She’s known for her eye-catching outfits when presenting Good Morning Britain, but Kate Garraway stepped out of her usual comfort zone with her most recent look.

Fully embracing this season’s animal print trend, Kate shunned her usual dress and heels combo and instead opted for a faux snakeskin skirt.

The a-line shape is not only super flattering, skimming over her waist and thighs, but the classic cut contrasts perfectly with the unique yellow-toned print and high shine fabric.

And the best part? It’s just £49.99 from high street hero Zara. Still available in sizes XS to L online, there’s even a matching biker jacket too. Easy to style during this cold spell, layer the jacket over a low-key monochrome outfit for an on-trend twist.

Adding a sports luxe feel to her outfit, we love how Kate has teamed her skirt with a bold yellow polo top.

The silky fabric and unusual yellow ochre shade elevate this basic to a statement piece. Classic black courts with a hint of mesh elongate her legs and finish off the look perfectly.

Uploading a snap of her outfit to Instagram, Kate made a joking reference to fellow daytime TV star Holly Willoughby’s new presenting gig on I’m a Celebrity – captioning the photo, ‘it’s a jungle out there!’

Fans went wild for her bold outfit, with one commenting, ‘the skirt is beautiful Kate and you look so beautiful wearing it.’ Whilst another said, ‘you’ve inspired me to buy a shiny snakeskin skirt.’

This isn’t the first time Kate has been seen wearing Zara though. Back in August she sent fans running to stores to steal her style with a pair of simple courts. Not content with just one pair, she splashed out on both the nude and yellow version of the same patent heel.

Will you be getting her skirt for yourself? See you at the checkouts! We can’t wait to see what Kate wears next.

Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress. 

The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
