This year is Next's 30th anniversary, and to celebrate this month Take 10 have each picked a piece from their 30th Anniversary collection to style. I picked this tailored pencil skirt as I knew it was the sort of piece I'd wear a lot, and so this is a bit of a work look for me.

I have to say I was quite surprised when the skirt came as you can't tell here but it's actually a bit glittery, which I wasn't expecting. I think it's still work appropriate though - I'll just be adding a little sparkle to the office! Make sure you click through to see what everyone else is wearing via the links above.

I used to be more sceptical of Next but after I worked at their hq this summer I've seen the whole AW12 range and it's all gorgeous! You've styled this skirt really well, love the sparkle in it too :) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

I love this on you Harriet! The glitter is hard to pick up in these photos but I bet that it just adds a little extra something for days at work. It's gorgeous and looks great for work! So classy.
