On top of my wishlist for fall: the midi skirt. Darlings like Emma Elwin (left picture) or Dree Hemingway (right picture via) and designers like Phoebe Philo for Céline FW 2013 show you how to style it. Combine it with some flat boots (if you’re tall enough) or boots with chunky wooden heels. And if you are afraid to look too frumpish, look at Dree and just punk it up with a see-through shirt. Done. 

And here’s how to shop this trend on a budget: 1.) Pleated Wool Skirt in aubergine from COS // 2.) A-Line Skirt in tangerine also from COS // 3.) Pleated Skirt from Zara // 4.) Faux Leather Skirt from Whistles // 5.) Long Skirt from Base Range via La Garconne // 6.) Dark red Leather Skirt from Zara.
