5 Autumn Mini Skirts To Brave The Cold For


THE AUTUMN MINI SKIRT


I’m not sure where I stand when it comes to baring my legs in autumn. On the one hand, I am an extremely lazy shaver (or I’m battling the patriarchy, who knows?) and if you can’t forgo shaving throughout autumn and winter, when can you? On the other hand, I actually prefer wearing skirts in cooler weather, because not only is summer chafing a thing of the past, but I tend to struggle with internal temperature regulation in the colder months.

Picture this: a crowded tube carriage with steamed up windows from congested people breathing through their mouths and bodies radiating heat after a mad dash to the station. Yuck. A seemingly put together young woman enters the carriage, but to everybody in her immediate vicinity’s discomfort, she immediately begins ripping off every layer of clothing while simultaneously turning the colour of a tomato as beads of sweat melt the makeup off her face. Yep, that’s me, and it’s horrendous every time!

Something about the stark contrast between indoor and outdoor temperatures over autumn and winter is really difficult for my body to manage. In fact, I recently passed out in the middle of a crowd of swaying bodies at rush hour because of this very reason. True story! In any case, reducing my core body temperature to near hypothermic levels by baring my legs in the dead of winter seems to help, so here are the mini skirts I’ll gladly brave the cold for!

MANGO


This embroidered black mini skirt from Mango must be the ultimate autumn skirt. The attention to detail is evident in the stand out embroidery and delicate scalloped hem. It’s everything you could want from a mini skirt for fall! The black base colour means it will look great with tights, too! For styling inspiration, see my posts here and here.
 
 
 

 


TOPSHOP


Prince of Wales check is in, but forget the trouser suits! Instead, pull off the trend in this corset lace up skirt from Topshop. You can find check skirts, blazers and trousers everywhere right now, but I haven’t seen anything like this, so stand out from the crowd in this slightly more sophisticated option. Styled with a black polo neck, it’ll make for the perfect workwear find, too!

MISA LOS ANGELES AT REVOLVE


For a slightly slinkier number, look to this ruffle tiered velvet beauty by MISA Los Angeles at Revolve. This will look stunning with a button up shirt and over the knee boots for autumn, but paired with a sparkly body suit, it’ll be your Christmas party pal, too. It’s also available in a gorgeous burgundy colour if traditional fall colours are your thing!
 
 
 

 


URBAN OUTFITTERS


It wouldn’t be autumn without a corduroy skirt, and this year’s wine coloured pick is from Urban Outfitters! With a statement silver zip down the front, it’s something a little different from the classic button down or jean style skirts. This is a great option for those of you who prefer casual wear. Throw on a jumper and some chunky boots, and you’re ready to go!

ALEXACHUNG AT SELFRIDGES


Don’t you think velvet just screams autumn/winter? That’s why I couldn’t write this post without including this ditsy embroidered number by ALEXACHUNG at Selfridges. Unlike the bold colours of the Mango skirt, the embroidery on this A-line beauty is sparse and understated. That doesn’t mean you won’t stand out on the street though!
