70's on-trend styling? Check.
Longer length for A/W? Perfect.
This zip front skirt from Miss Selfridge was a clear winner in my eyes, as soon as I saw it hanging in store... But then came the conundrum of what to wear with it?? I didn't fancy trying to rock a little cropped tee as we headed into October, but would a sweater look shapeless? A denim shirt, too much?
What to wear with an A-line, denim midi skirt?
Hopefully you like the addition of this sleeveless grey polo neck tunic from Forever Modo! The style is snuggly but not too stifling on a bright, Autumnal day like today. To balance out the wide hem of the a-line skirt, I wanted to keep my top half quite fitted. I also found that this shorter length jacket complimented the look as it brings your eyes into the waistband.
My preppy, 70s look was completed with my fave Penny backpack and snakeskin boots!
Outfit: Burgundy Fringe Jacket - Boohoo*, Denim Zip Up Skirt - Miss Selfridge via Fashionchick, Grey Ribbed Tunic Dress (worn as a top) - Forever Modo
Accessories: Navy Timex Watch, Snakeskin Boots - River Island (similar), Penny Backpack - Nica Handbags*
Like I said, the length of this skirt is fab. I chose to got for my usual size and wear this high waisted. On the Miss Selfridge website, this has been styled on the model to be worn on the hips... Maybe that's because she's beautiful and tall?! I'm not sure. The choice is yours!
Tip: If you're worried about midi lengths being unflattering (especially on shorter ladies - like me!) then, this skirt is ideal. The split at the front allows a flash of leg without being too much for day time wear!
FYI, These lovely blue doors were spotted whilst visiting my BF in Winchester! The whole town is so gorgeous and blogworthy... I might just take my whole wardrobe down next time... Unfortunately, I did seem to have my camera on the wrong setting, so pics are slightly blurred compared to normal! (Waahh!)
Hope you like the look anyway :-) What do you think of the Denim Midi?
