Here, I have matched my skirt with a – winter white – “French Connection” coat, a pop of red cashmere, then completing the look with long black leather boots.

When you’re browsing on the internet or looking through a magazine for fashion inspiration, and you see an item of clothing that really catches your eye, you either go to the website and buy it, or look for something similar and within budget. Especially, if the item is too expensive – which is usually the case.

I really love neutral tones here as they add a timeless and sophisticated look, particularly when worn together. It’s Winter, here, and I’m wearing a faux fur “French Connection” gilet, along with a timeless cashmere sweater from Marks and Spencer.

I saw a picture, online, of a Midi skirt and loved the rich colours and check design. So, after doing some detective work, I spotted this Mango skirt and immediately sent for it.  It’s a lovely light wool and the colours are khaki and brown tones with buttons down the front.

There are of course so many different ways you can style this skirt. These versatile colours allow me to wear the skirt with a neutral colour palette or bolder, contrasting tones.  This skirt, for me, is a classic piece that I can wear, for many years to come…..Here, I’m wearing long black leather boots with a short leather biker jacket, also from Mango

The Midi is my favourite length – I find it very flattering.  This skirt is a timeless classic.  During this season, there couldn’t be a more perfect fabric. To me, it oozes femininity and style.  It’s great, either dressed up with heels or knee-high boots, or simply dressed down and casual, with ankle boots.

I bought this brown jacket, recently, in the “Zara” sale.  It was reduced from £119.00 to £29.99 – I couldn’t believe my luck!!  I know I will get a lot of wear out of it.

Thank you for your time and I hope you found the post helpful and informative!

      Hi Gail,
      Thank you – I’ve had this coat for ages – at least ten years – the colour it is, i’m a little scared to wear it all of the time – I just get visions of either chocolate or red wine getting spilt on it!
      Lovely to meet you too!

    I’ve been debating about buying a cream coat. They just look so glamorous and elegant. Worried about my clumsy spillages though! This looks great on you xx

      Thank you! I haven’t worn it a lot for the same reasons. I can be very clumsy. That’s probably why the coat still has that new look as it is quite old. I saw a lovely long, beige wrap coat advertised from Marks and Spencer, which, I may check out as I liked the look of it!
