Autumn is my favourite time of the year. The nights are darker, the air is cooler, and Starbucks finally bring back their pumpkin spice lates! And each year as soon as the leaves start to change, out comes the skirt and turtle neck collection. The combination has become my winter uniform for the past few years, and 2016 has proved no exception.
I’ve divided my Styling skirts for winter post into two categories, casual and dressy. Today I’ve started with the casual category.
This skirt was purchased from Topshop at £20, and is a stretchy material (although still quite thick!), with a zip up back. Although I usally avoid these style skirts as the material is normally poor quality, and tends not to be flattering, I feel like this skirt is definitely the exception! I was drawn to this skirt because of the unique 80’s pattern, and I knew how easy it would be to style with jumpers throughout the winter.
I added a black turtle neck because I think it’s such a classic, versatile jumper. And in this outfit, it just completely tones down the colour-pop skirt. However, the jumper still remains completely on trend, while also allowing you to be winter ready (Very important up North!)
I dressed the look down with a pair of Adidas Superstar trainers. I’m pretty obsessed with both the Superstar and Gazelle range from Adidas, and there have become my wardrobe staples. The styles are just so classic, and just allow your outfit to become effortlessly stylish.
I added the Zara mustard jacket to really emphasize the 80’s trend, and just to add a bit more colour to the outfit. I really love 80’s colour blocking trend, and if you read my blog you’ll know it’s a trend I’ve talked about before (click here to view).
This is a very casual look for myself, that I’d just be able to throw together for lectures without really thinking about it….What do you think of the way I’ve styled the skirt? Let me know in the comments!
