it’s fall y’all and time for one of our “definitive seasonal guides”. earlier this season, we rolled out our women’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.
leapin’ leopard! yes, leopard print is still going strong this fall. and i for one am thrilled. this (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 (similar) leopard skirt with a (similar) black cami and ivory silk blouse (old, similar here). the shirt could have been tied at the waist instead of tucked. but i wanted the (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 (similar) black turtleneck, (similar) black midiskirt paired with (similar) black boots. to amp up the sharp suiting look, i popped on a (similar) houndstooth blazer (last seen here and here).
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 here and here) to pull this outfit together. read more about my ‘back to basics’ series here. an adorable (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.
today’s ootd starts with a timeless (similar) Ponte pencil skirt in a bold color – apple red (similar in yellow)v. it’s tailored to perfection yet this skirt is so forgiving as it’s crafted from refined Ponte that skims your body and hides any imperfections. this (similar) pencil skirt is the perfect choice for a jam-packed day that starts with breakfast and a much-needed cup of joe. a multi-color braided trim tweed blazer (similar here) adds effortless sophistication. the addition of a classic denim shirt keeps this outfit polished yet playful.
