It’s autumn and you may feel like your midi skirt wearing days are over until next year. But, I’m here to tell you they don’t have to be! As you might already know, I love recycling bits from the back of my wardrobe and making them feel brand new. Sometimes the way you style an item in your closet can make you fall back in love with it.
Midi skirts may traditionally be seen as summer attire – I know I’ve worn this one countless times with a cute crop top and heeled sandals. You may even be prone to locking up your skirts as the nights draw in and the warmer days have disappeared, but dig them back out!!!!
Depending on the fabric, a midi skirt can look great with a set of ankle boots and a nice knit (I think I’m starting to talk about knits too much on this blog, but I LOVE them so much!). You could also upgrade your skirt game by pairing it with some slouchy boots and a cute jacket for the eighties wrapped up chic look.
In all of your skirt endeavours I would add in a set of tights (for this look go for skin-coloured so that you get the full affect of the ankle boot). Additionally, layer a camisole beneath the knit for maximising your chances of not freezing to death….I think my spirit animal is a camel so I need to be constantly warm.
Here I wore a black skirt to keep the look more autumnal/wintery but there are some amazing coloured autumn patterns out there (check out the Zara patterned sitch below). I would steer clear of bright summer colours to avoid an unseasonal ootd faux pas.
A pleated midi skirt could also work, below i’ve used my old metallic one from a couple years ago. You could easily pair it with a dark grey chunky knit and a long coat. Zara have brought out a devastatingly gorgeous updated velvet version (see below in my top picks), but I’m trying to resist the temptation.
So guys, dig out your summer skirts, invest in some tights from Primark and get outfit recycling!!!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
