Autumn for me brings a completely new challenge of dressing. It’s that in-between weather which can be daunting to master. However, just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean you have to turn in your favourite skirt, with the help of a classic coat, cosey jumper, tights and boots you’ll be looking stylish and nicely wrapped up to face the cold.
I love shopping and I love the feeling of finding something new but there are few things in my wardrobe that I miss during the colder months and this skirt is one of them. I’ve noticed a lot of midi maxi skirts coming into stores for Autumn, and it got me thinking that I could probably recycle my favourite summer skirt for Autumn quite easily.
My advice for styling a skirt in the Autumn would be to make sure your skirt has an element of black in it, this way if you wanted to pair with tights it doesn’t look mismatched. To balance the colours opt for a lighter more neutral coloured jumper if you’re pairing it with a dark coloured coat. The neutral coloured jumper keeps the outfit fresh for the new season.
When it’s cold and dark there is nothing better than snuggling up in an oversized knitted jumper. I don’t know about you but knitwear is currently taking over 90% of my wardrobe…and floor. I get so excited when knitwear starts to hit stores. It is a must to have a turtle-neck knit in your collection, perfect for when you don’t want to bother with scarves and they look great when your hair is slightly tucked in for a more high fashion look. A turtle-neck also looks great when styled with a midi skirt, it looks effortless yet keeps you super warm. For Autumn pairing a thicker knitwear piece with a light trench coat is a great way to balance your layering.
Wanting to wear this for an evening out? Pairing with a black tighter turtle-neck and high heeled boots, add some bold metal earrings and a leather jacket can completely transform the look of the skirt into a lovely evening outfit.
