a women’s guide to skirts for the fall

it’s fall y’all and time for one of our “definitive seasonal guides”.  earlier this season, we rolled out our opens in a new windowwomen’s definitive denim guide. today we’re talking about skirts.  i’ve picked and compiled some of my favorite looks over the past few seasons and combined them into your single source of truth for skirts.  that’s right:  we’re talking midi-, maxi-, and everything in-between.  because, well, who doesn’t love to wear a skirt in the fall?   the weather has definitely cooled down here in Athens, which means i’m reaching for a sweater or two.  but regardless of what you’re going to pair with your skirt, sit back and enjoy our  women’s guide to skirts for the fall. 

opens in a new windowmidi skirt 

leapin’ leopard! yes, leopard print is still going strong this fall. and i for one am thrilled. this  opens in a new window(similar) leopard skirt from [Talbots] has a forgiving waistband and on-trend pleats. love the midi-length which is perfect with pumps or boots. this skirt will be on style repeat all fall long as there are so many ways to wear it.

today, i paired the opens in a new window (similar) leopard skirt with a  opens in a new window(similar) black cami and ivory silk blouse (old, similar  opens in a new windowhere). the shirt could have been tied at the waist instead of tucked. but i wanted the  opens in a new window(similar) belt from Versace to shine, so i opted for tucked. mixing high and low-end pieces is a style trick i’ve used for years. it works!

today’s outfit is about taking the week head-on. for a classic, sophisticated look starts with a monochromatic black outfit. perfectly appropriate for the winter temps here in Athens, i am opting for a opens in a new window(similar) black turtleneck opens in a new window(similar) black midiskirt paired with  opens in a new window(similar) black boots. to amp up the sharp suiting look, i popped on a  opens in a new window(similar) houndstooth blazer (last seen  opens in a new windowhere and  opens in a new windowhere).

since i’m a big believer of having the basics on hand. those wardrobe workhorses you depend on to transition from outfit to outfit with ease. and span the seasons. i relied on this blue tee (similar opens in a new windowhere and opens in a new windowhere) to pull this outfit together. read more about my ‘back to basics’ series opens in a new window here. an adorable  opens in a new window(similar) orange skirt is next. this skirt runs true to size. i’m wearing a size 8, and it fits to a T. the gold buttons, and A-line shape are what drew me to this skirt.

    I love skirts, but nobody seems to wear them anymore. They look much better on me than pants as the fit isn’t as crucial. None of my pants seem to fit right and I can’t try them on because I can’t find a plus petite in a store. I’m just going to wear my skirts whether anyone else does or not! Thanks for the suggestions, Beth

    Hi Beth,
    I haven’t worn skirts in years…varicose veins that just keep coming back don’t jibe with showing off my legs…..but the black on black outfit reminded me of the way I wore skirts in the 70’s…long and swirling with boots. One of my favorite looks ever.
    I may just go out and search for a black midi skirt…have the blazer, have the boots and turtleneck….
    Have a terrific Sunday…and thank you for some inspiration today!

    Hi Beth,
    As always, your instincts for what works are superb. This is slightly off topic, but my JCrew denim jumpsuit finally arrived, and it’s a hit! I would never have given it a second look had it not been featured here. Keep doing what you’re doing, and be well!

    I’m not making a new purchase on boots since its looks like we may still be housebound. I don’t buy trendy boots anyway so my old ones will do. I love the leopard skirt and the red skirt has such cute details. Maybe a new skirt.🙂

    Just a small comment. I far prefer your hair short. It is much more attractive on you. Takes years off you.

    All of your skirt looks are stunning. Particularly love the last one. With tights and leggings of all lengths and colors available, as well as so many footwear choices, skirts are a great option year round. Thanks for this inspiring post.
