How many of you dread the beginning of winter because it means you have to pack away all your favourite skirts and dresses? There is no doubt that the pleated midi skirt has been a huge staple for many of us over summer and spring and today I thought I’d show you how to eek a little bit more wear out of it, even as the weather starts to cool down.

As you can see above I have paired my skirt with a slightly baggy jumper and some ankle booties for some added warmth. A common issue with this combination however is that most of us tend to lose a bit of ‘shape’ under all the layers, and you can see that has happened to me. My solution to this problem was to wear different shades of the same colour for my whole outfit. By keeping the look tonal it helps to create a lean, streamlined silhouette.

If you wanted to mix and match your pieces a little bit more you could add a belt to define your waist or wear a cropped jumper that finishes at the waistband of your skirt. The metallics trend is definitely carrying through to the cooler months so I’ve added a touch of fun and sparkle with these silver sock booties from Rubi Shoes.

What do you think about this look? Who else will be modifying their favourite summer pieces to work for them in the cooler months? xx
