Style Tip: Maxi & Midi Skirts For Autumn/Winter

Updated: Jan 22

With the emergence of 90s and Y2K trends, it is no surprise that midi and, particularly, maxi skirts are everywhere.

Longer length skirts glided down the AAFW runways in almost every show in many different styles and fabrics (denim, leather (a particular favourite), cotton and silk) and are sure to remain in style well into Spring/Summer.

Here are three ways to style these skirts for the colder months:

1. Boots and Knit Jumper: pair your skirts with boots and a knitted jumper tucked into the waistband to create shape and draw the eye down. You can accessorise with a belt to secure the tuck.

Pairing the skirt with knee high boots will elongate the leg and add contrast to the outfit.

Chunky sole chelsea boots work just as well if you prefer a flatter sole for all day wear. Pairing skirts with a chunky boot adds an edgier feel to the outfit.

Layer your coat or jacket over the knit for extra warmth.

2. Blazer and Flats: a blazer is a staple piece for any wardrobe and perfect for layering over a long-sleeve cotton shirt or ribbed knit during Autumn and Winter. Pair back your blazer and skirt with loafers, ballet flats or sneakers for a look that can go from day-time errands to a casual lunch or after work drinks. This combination is the perfect blend of comfort and style.

HINT: a white sneaker paired with a silk midi-skirt will make this dressier fabric more casual.

3. Cotton Jumper/Sweatshirt: elevate your cotton jumpers/sweatshirts by wearing them with a midi or maxi skirt for an unexpected combination on those days where comfort is key. Finish the look with a pair of sneakers or boots and a cross body bag. For those icy days, layer a trench, denim jacket or wool coat over the jumper.
