In this little blog series, we’re going to take an Autumn Winter trend, and show you how to wear it – three ways. First up, the full midi skirt.
Being on trend is all very well, but getting more wear out of your on-trend piece is better. Its all about being clever with the pieces you buy, and seeing how they can be adapted for various occasions. This week, the full midi skirt – for work, play and a day in the park.
This is how we would style this lovely full midi skirt from H&M (£34.99) for three occasions.
1. At the Office
We’ve chosen the full midi skirt from H&M in burgundy – it also comes in black – to add an instant bit of on-trend autumn winter colour to your wardrobe. For work, dress it down with a white shirt, an elegant jacket and some easy ballet pumps, and a roomy bag.
2. A Night Out
You can wear the same skirt out at night with a few simple changes. Big heels, a few pieces of statement jewellery, a bustier top (or a vest if you’re not a bustier fan) and an on-trend leather bikers jacket bring this skirt up for the evening – add a clutch and you’re good to go.

3. A Walk in the Park
Stick one some tights, a vest top or a t-shirt, add your full midi skirt, and then layer up for a walk in the park with style – a sweater, a scarf, a hat, a gilet or a jacket give a cosy but stylish look- and a great alternative to jeans. Don’t forget some fur lined ankle boots, and a cross-body bag.
