Wearing the Maxi Skirt in Autumn/Winter

I've been teasing this long for far too long over on my Instagram so it was about time I shared it up on here and explained the concept behind the look. The idea of wearing summer pieces in the cold is enough to give anyone cold chills but when adopted in the proper manner you could pull off summer pieces in the winter month's with ease.

For this look the discerning piece I chose was a maxi skirt, one that I have had in my wardrobe for a couple of years. I must say that it is not your typical maxi skirt with a lightweight fabric ideal to beat the summer heat. The fabric composition consists of a wool mix thus making it somewhat acceptable to wear in the cold.

My trick to getting away with wearing summer pieces in the winter months is to either layer them up or pair them with winter pieces. It's one of the ways in which you can stretch your summer wardrobe pieces into the winter.For this look, I chose the latter option of pairing the maxi skirt with a turtle/polo neck knit jumper and given that we all pretty much associate the polo neck knit with a winter look, it instantly gives the whole outfit those winter vibes. 

It's a simple approach that you can all recreate to stretch the wears out of some of your summer favs.
