3 Skirts To Add To Your Wardrobe This Winter

Zara Camel Wool Knitted Midi Skirt
Winter can be pretty difficult when it comes to combining style with budget.  It's the time of year when heavy duty items require more fabric and therefore often tend to cost more.  Much more.  Far in the distance are the floral mini dresses that cost no more than breakfast, and the camisoles are priced similarly to a coffee.  Ugh.  It's because of this I adore classic pieces during winter more than any other time of year!  The kind of item that proves impossible to put a price on.  Is it high-street?  Is it high-end?  Who knows!  With this in mind, I've been adding a few more classic pieces to my wardrobe lately, with unusually textured skirts coming out on top as the most exciting to track down.  Ooh...

My one true love this season.  They look chic, feel warm and are a classic investment to any winter wardrobe!  My advice?  Opt for neutrals that won't go out of style; camel, black or grey

Pick up the summer version of this knitted skirt (on sale!) via Zara ready for Spring

Pretty much a fail-safe, they'll take you through the seasons and promise to pair beautifully with both jumpers and camisoles alike!

Ugh, be still my beating heart.  They're impossibly chic and are guaranteed to keep people guessing when it comes to the question: high-street or high-end?

Psst!  Topshop currently has a gorgeous range of new season satin skirts!

  10. You always have such beautiful locations. Wonderful photography! The outfit you have put together is absolutely fab. You look so perfect. What a gorgeous skirt! I do like how you styled it, you choose fabulous accessories to go along with it. Those gloves are so chic. Great boots as well. That snake print bag is a nice touch.

    I like your suggestions for skirt. I do love knitted and plaid skirts, but I haven't tried wearing satin skirts yet. Maybe I should give them a go?

  11. Love that fine knitted skirt Gabrielle!! Lovely color combination too, very mature and refined. I love the pleated skirts and have some but would love to get some more hehe, just can't get enough of them. Have a lovely week! Xx

  12. I love pleated skirts! They're not always easy to wear, but I'm enjoying them more and more!
    The Zara skirt you're wearing is super pretty! I haven't seen too many knitted skirts yet but I'll have a look in the shops now!

  13. So chic and fabulous as always! I've mostly been purchasing jumpers and blazers lately. I'm such a wimp when it comes to the cold that I don't wear many skirts during the winter months but you're inspiring me to give it a go Gabrielle :D

  14. I love skirts but I always struggle with what tops to wear! You look amazing!

  17. Satin skirts also make me swoon. I have my eye on (another) animal print version and I am impatiently waiting for a sale to pop up (they usually have discounts popping up here and there so, I'm hoping another one is coming soon!)


  18. I'm loving the beak necklaces, so cute! The camel skirt is gorgeous with your boots. I would love to get on the satin skirt trend, but I know it wouldn't be a forever staple in my wardrobe. I love seeing it styled on others though. A very pretty location Gabrielle : ) xo


  19. Lovely outfit.
    I super like your skirt.


  20. With that three skirt we can't go wrong! They are so classic and elegant! I like how you style this outfit! Thank you for inspiration!

  39. I'll admit that I'm a big jean wearer but I'm slowly starting to get a few more skirts into my wardrobe! I love patterned minis and recently maxi skirts have been lovely for this time of year with jumpers tucked into, especially pleated skirts which are just so flattering!

  40. Your style is the definition of femininity! Love this outfit so much and frankly speaking - I don't think that many girls can rock a maxi skirt quite like you do! xx


  41. I have been seeing a lot of satin skirts around lately. I'm waiting for my order from Boohoo, -got a polka dot one and can't wait to try it. You look amazing Gabrielle. :-)
