One Skirt, Three Ways

Being quite a savvy shopper, I do like to have items of clothing that can be worn in several different ways. It's a rare occasion when I buy something which can only be worn once or in only one way, so with each purchase I have a little tick box in my head where I go through my virtual wardrobe memory and consider what other garments the new garment can be teamed with. I've been after a faux leather skirt for a while now and did pick one up from H&M, but it's definitely more of a going out one, that. I know they're not particularly well known for being a casual piece of clothing for every day wear (unless you're Miley Cyrus) but that's all part of the challenge, huh? When +Debenhams offered me the chance to pick up some Autumn/Winter essentials off their website I knew that I wanted some kind of skirt like this Henry Holland one. Fancy enough for evening outings yet casual enough from the velvet spottyness to be worn on a casual every day basis. And here's how I 'styled' it in three different ways which can be suitable for most weather conditions we're having lately!

The beauty of a (faux) leather skirt is that when you have more generous hips like I do, it doesn't create some kind of weird friction between your top piece of clothing and the bottom half and make the top you're wearing ride up constantly! I've been having all kind of problems trying to wear a tapestry skirt with that first jumper I tell thee. So not only are they pretty darn stylish but they're oh so practical too. What can I say? I just think of everything me. The skirt itself is pretty stretchy material so quite forgiving and comfortable to wear too, I'm a big fan of the velvet polka dots as well!

How would you style this skirt?

  5. I really like the fact it has polka dots and some different texture on it as well. I do like HH stuff but it can be so short, sometimes, that it puts me off.
    Love the idea of creating three outfits and making it work for you in different outfits, I shoudl really learn to do that!
