ASOS Leather Mini Skirt With Thigh High Boots & A Floppy Hat
Even though Autumn has long gone, I felt like I wanted to do an outfit that was more Autumnal than it was Wintry. As you know from me saying (in this outfit) before, I’m a little bit fed up with the cold weather and the layers to keep warm, so again, I braved the cold for a different type of look.
I wore this ASOS Faux Leather Mini Skirt in Black with my ALLSAINTS Alpha Roll Neck Jumper in Alpaca Brown. I thought it made a good base to be chic and fashionable instead of borderline risque, especially since I wore the Aldo Asteille Faux Suede Brown Thigh High Boots (same as the leather boots from this outfit). I kept with the brown theme and layered my Topshop Tan Coat over my shoulders for extra effect, then finished it off with my Celine Nano Luggage Bag in Dune, my Maison Scotch Hat, and a Ted Baker Jewellery Ballerina Necklace.
When it comes to outfits and fashion, I’m very much into experimenting with different looks and even though I have done similar outfits to this before, with different pieces, it’s still incredibly different to my normal looks as I don’t wear skirts very often at all, especially not with thigh high boots. So this outfit here might be one of my favourites with a hat! I think it helps that I love this Allsaints jumper so much, which was unexpected. I never thought I would as it has wool in it and I get itchy skin with wool, but this one didn’t irritate at all, so I even got it in cream as well, as it’s so comfortable and warm. It does run small though, I had to size up to a medium in it, despite being a UK 6 in Allsaints.
I’ve often liked the look of leather mini skirts too, especially when worn stylishly and with an Autumnal look. They can be tricky to pull off because of the stigma leather mini skirts have, but when you wear them with coats on the shoulder and knitwear, it really takes them out of that territory. Plus, adding in a floppy hat and some neutral accessories, really tones it down even more. The necklace is super cute as well, I got it from Ted Baker Jewellery and it’s rose gold and black, with moveable arms and legs. How sweet is that?
Anyway, on a different note, I have an important post coming up after this one in a few days about my health, which I’ve been waiting to share with you for a while, so stay tuned for that. But in the meantime, please enjoy this outfit and do let me know what you think of it as I’d love your thoughts on something more experimental for me, as I’m still trying to push my boundaries this year.
