It looks like there’s a new must-have fashion piece in town, and you can buy it with one $20 note.

Shoppers are losing their collective minds over a very simple, but very versatile piece from Kmart that defies it’s $18 price tag to emerge as the absolute winner of this winter’s wardrobe.

The Satin Midi Skirt comes in a chocolate brown print with white polka dots, and a clever group of fashion bloggers have taken to Instagram to prove the single piece is really a five-way wear.

Five different looks for $18

In a series of photos the skirt is styled in five completely different ways, going from casual daywear to dressy eveningwear, with every look in between.

The five accounts behind the collaboration - iCurvy, Trash to Treasure, Champagne S’Il Vous Plait, I Heart Kmart and This With This - include six ladies who span every age and body type, proving that in terms of versatility, the skirt truly does cater to everyone.

Tina Abeysekara, who runs the account Trash to Treasure, says the skirt is an absolute must-have for the price.

“It’s quite an affordable piece if you want to try something on-trend at the moment,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

“People are loving the fact that they can see it on not just a lot of different people and body shapes but for a lot of different occasions.”

She’s not wrong, shoppers have flooded the post, shared to the five different accounts, with nothing but praise.

“This skirt is AMAZING. So flattering. I’ve got mine,” one wrote.

“Need this skirt,” shared another.

“It's a fantastic skirt,” another agreed.

“Love this! So good seeing it styled different ways,” one woman wrote.

For anyone ready but nervous to dip their toe into the world of winter-chic fashion, Tina says you can’t go past this stylish number.

“This is five in one essentially, five looks for the cost of one,” she says.

As for what other bargains are on the horizon? Tina advises the savvy shopper keep their eyes peeled for Kmart’s upcoming trenchcoats.

She says the bargain outerwear is light enough for mild winter days, but easy to layer when the chill sets in.

It’s not the first time a Kmart buy has set the fashion mood for a season.

Earlier this year a $28 jumpsuit went flying off the shelves after shoppers became obsessed with the bargain buy.
