If all you can think of in this cold is trousers, trousers and more trousers, you might be in need of some “skirtpiration” (skirt inspiration). At the end of the day, if it’s the weather you worry about, you can layer an entire wardrobe under a skirt, but hardly anything under those jeans. Am I right? Tell me I am, I love these odd moments when it seems like I am. Kidding, too much coffee, and it’s only 8 am.
Look, I get it! It is just so freaking convenient to dress in the uniform that jeans + a sweater is, I am stuck in the same rut. But for the days when you want to look more put together, you can’t go wrong with a skirt. Not that it’s a scientifically proven fact, but if you wear a skirt (and look tired enough), a gentlemen if there are any left on Earth, might offer his place on the tube. Don’t test my theory during peek hours, though. Even so, it might be too far-fetched to hope for anything like this.
My personal secret to wearing skirts in the winter, especially in a windy winter which is the only one London gets, is the length. Midi or maxi, nothing mini or I feel like I am flashing everybody that walks past. If you drive in the narrow streets of London on a Friday or Saturday evening, you are guaranteed to be flashed…which I don’t know about you, but it is a big no-no in my book. Enough blabbering, let’s get into some pictures of the skirts that I wore recently.
