Dearest fashionistas, even though the temps are dropping, I still think it’s perfectly fine to wear skirts through the fall and winter months. While your legs can get cold, a pair of tights, booties, and a thick fall blazer will make you forget any doubts you had!
Today’s #MyGoodwillFind is a bright, warm, yellow panel skirt by H&M decorated with luscious gold hardware in a size 6. It will be sure to keep you looking snazzy during this Thanksgiving month. At full retail price it was originally $30 at least.
Throw on $.99 Goodwill black tights and ankle booties and you’ll be all set! Despite the length being above the knee there are ways to wear it during the fall.
For this skirt I’d channel Renaissance and Victorian vibes by finding a long ruffle or short sleeve blouse to tuck underneath the skirt. For a little fall or neutral color blocking play I might integrate a cranberry color by way of a top. Otherwise, you can never go wrong with any form of black and white. If the top of choice is on the sheer side, don’t forget to rock a cami underneath! You don’t want to be freezing on a brisk windy day.
However, another way to avoid this feeling is by wearing a form fitting waist-length blazer in black or navy blue – the choice is yours!
Then, with a pair of tights, feel free to put on some flirty platform heels or ankle booties. Black mod ankle booties will compliment the clean cut of the skirt while keeping your feet nice and cozy. However, for a date night, you might want to experiment with Mary-Jane style scrappy heels! This style is typically more comfy than a standard stiletto.
