Midi Skirts - From Summer to Winter

Hey Guys I hope you are all having a great week so far! As you may have seen in a recent post of mine all about sustainable fashion I am really trying to make more sensible choices when it comes to shopping at the moment. One thing that I'm trying to do is buy clothes that I can style in multiple ways to get the most use out of them, but also to try and be more creative with my outfits!

It is a lot easier to style your Summer wardrobe for Winter. Because you can layer up your outfit and obviously your not going to wear a chunky knit jumper in the heat! One style that can easily be transferred from Summer to Winter is Midi Skirts. I much prefer this style to shorter skirts/dresses, because they can be worn for more occasions and its the perfect outfit to take from a day in the office to drinks after. For Summer I tend to style Midi skirts with short sleeve bodysuits and brogues, then for Winter simply switch it up with an oversized knit and boots! I would also switch up my outerwear from a leather jacket to a fur coat etc.

I also think people do tend to switch up the colours in their wardrobes for Summer/Winter and don't get me wrong I love darker tones, but I'd also say don't shy away from wearing bold colours and prints in the colder months too. (Your outfit will stand out from the crowd more) You cannot see clearly in these photos but this Jumper has a slit on both sides, which is perfect because you can then see more of the pattern on the skirt. I've worn this Jumper with multiple midi skirts now, meaning it was a good purchase in terms of the use that I will get out of it. I'm trying to steer away from the cheaper  high street brands and online stores and buy my basics/knits from places that are slightly better quality so they will last longer. Now I don't have a huge budget to spend on clothes so cannot go out and buy an expensive cashmere jumper, but buying slightly better quality on the budget you have helps the environment because you will get more use out of that item. Compared to something that is much cheaper and will not last as long. I think these small changes really do go a long way and make a difference. 

Let me know if you are trying to shop more sustainably and how it's going?
