For most of us, our normal routine is to grab a pair of jeans unless we have someplace fancy to go. When was the last time you wore plaid skirts, or any skirt for that matter, just because? I thought about this the last time that I put this outfit on. I love wearing skirts, and I don’t pull them out of my closet enough. With a great pair of tights and boots, skirts are actually perfect for the winter months as well. Worn with a cozy faux shearling coat, and a warm cashmere cardigan, it pretty much might be the perfect combination.
While these photos were taken in Los Angeles, I’ve worn this outfit out and about in London quite a few times, with tights included. The Shearling Coat by Smythe is also perfect with jeans and great for those extra chilly days. If you don’t want to go full-jacket, there are a lot of cute shearling vests out there which give the same effect.
In hunting for more great skirts to share with you girls, I found quite a few on J.Crew, as well as Topshop and Net-a-Porter. Under the burgundy sweater is my favorite basic silk black blouse by L’Agence. I struggle to find that brand here in London at times, but you can always find their great pieces on Shopbop (which ships to both the US and the UK).
