Styling a Denim Midi Skirt for Autumn

Styling a denim midi skirt in autumn fashion bloggerSummer clothes have been stored away, and I'm now in the process of gleefully reuniting with my chunky jumpers and cashmere cardigans.  Yay!  I'll admit, when the temperature drops I find myself wishing it was acceptable to step outdoors in furry microwaveable slippers (please tell me this isn't just a Brit thing?), however a few recently added 'hero pieces' to my wardrobe are preventing me from inflicting such a cruel sight upon the world.  Right now, I'm all about this denim midi skirt designed by Donna Ida for Jaeger, the perfect foundation for a ton of different looks this season...

Styling a denim midi skirt fashion blogger street styleIf I'm not opting for an oversized blouse or cosy knit, I prefer smooth tops that slide into skirts without rippling.  With this in mind, Miss Selfridge have once again saved the day with their never-ending bodysuit releases.  I adore this black bardot top, featuring long-sleeves ideal for wearing alone, or equally teaming with a second layer to keep warm.  Quick fixes to breaking up the top's block colour?  Draping long hair over one shoulder, or adding a long pendant.

  1. I have never worn midi skirts in my life, because I don't think they suit me. This one looks great on you. I like that it is denim, and the hidden print is very nice actually. I like that you didn't combine it with an oversized sweater, because it sometimes looks awkward. The top is perfect.

  29. You look absolutely GORGEOUS, Gabrielle! I love this entire look, the bardot bodysuit is so feminine and romantic, I love it paired with the denim midi skirt and that unexpected pop of leopard really makes it that much more unique! Now, I'm also swooning over those ankle boots, I love that they're pointed toe and have the buckles on the side. At first glance, I thought it was a full boot, but after looking closely, I see that you've created the effect with the tights, such great styling, beauty! You are also so clever in using the hair accessory as a necklace and the velcro as a hair-tie! Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have the most amazing day ahead!

  35. Denim midi skirt is a very useful item to have in one's closet. I absolutely love how you styled yours. There is something timeless about pairing denim with black. Very stylish combo, for sure. Those ankle booties with high heels are dreamy... You look fantastic.

    How cool that you decided to wear that pedant as a necklace! That's creative thinking. Absolutely perfect styling, from head to toe. Btw the location is lovely, these photographs on the rooftop turned out so well...they are stunning!

  56. I remember when I was younger, we used to wear denim skirts a lot. I think that's why I don't really wear them anymore, since they instantly sound childish :D However, I love it on you, and I may have to reconsider that :D Also, I love the shoes! x

  71. I don't know if I can pull off a midi skirt like you can, but you sure rock this look! You look sooo gorgeous here and I really like how you pulled your hair to one side like that. I've used necklaces as hair jewelry before but not the other way round, I'll definitely keep that in mind next time I'm at loss for what to use!
