Fall in the South is always a difficult time for outfit-planning. I scroll through my Pinterest pages filled with adorable outfits that I know I will be sweating from within minutes of stepping out my door. Us southern gals need to stick together in this weird November heat! I’m here to share some temp-friendly outfits that don’t skimp on the fall cute-factor. One such item that I always have in my closet is the fall skirt. They’re easy to pair with thinner layers for warmer days, and can withstand the frigid temps when a cold-front moves in.
One skirt I can’t get enough of this season is the button-front skirt.
They’re the ultimate throwback to the 70s. The camel suede skirt (from Topshop) on the left is super soft and comfortable. I can wear it with a sweater and tights on a colder day, or thin top and flats when that southern sun is beating down. On the right is the skirt I’ve been obsessing about for weeks. It’s from H&M and can be yours for $30 (literally, such a steal)! Though my skirt hasn’t arrived in the mail yet, I’m already planning so many things to pair it with. Just from preference, I probably wouldn’t pair these with tights, but a plaid button-up and cute scarf might be just the ticket! Look at how J from J’s Everyday Fashion blog wore it below. Too cute!
Another skirt I found that’s a little more dressy is the wrap-skirt. I love how the extra layer of fabric gives this piece new life. The detailed wrap-skirt below can be worn with either navy or black, depending on what you have to pair it with in your closet. It’s another H&M find, and I plan to wear it for years to come. It’s also perfect for the office! The length is just right, and I wore mine with black opaque tights for some added warmth.
And last, but not least, I’m completely in love with leather skirts. They’re sassy, but can be worn modestly, too, if you’re headed to the office. I own the skirt pictured below (H&M) and plan to wear it to work and on a night out with friends. It’s the right length on me, and I went a size up so it wouldn’t fit me so tightly. On warmer days, all you need is a cute top and some crazy flats. When the weather suddenly turns cold? You can go all-out and wear black tights, black boots and even a leather jacket for an edgier look. I plan to rock this skirt with flannel and converse in the near future.
