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 sometimes can be the case.
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.
The Midi is my favourite length – I find it very flattering for me. 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.
Here, I have matched my skirt with a – winter white – “French Connection” coat, a pop of red cashmere, completing the look with long black leather boots..I really love neutral tones as they add a timeless and sophisticated look, particularly when worn together.
I have also added a faux fur “French Connection” gilet (below), along with a timeless cashmere sweater from Marks and Spencer to complete the look.
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!
