Right about now, the days are mixed with sun and chilly breezes, going from warm to cold from one hour to the next. My slip skirt collection is growing and this is how I am wearing them the most. Slip skirts with jumpers. The Instagram approved styling tip that is perfect for this transitional weather.
Lately, I have been wearing and ordering slip skirts like nobodies business. This likely stems from my love of slip dresses, t-shirts and the simpleness of styling them with a jumper or leather jacket. Then again, earlier this year I got the Pernile Teisbaek book “Dress Scandinavian” and made mental notes of all the times she wore mid-length slip skirts and decided they were distinctly lacking in my collection.
Since then, I have rectified this with the Naomi Wild Things Slip Skirt from Realisation Par that you see above and have seen on both Inspiring Wit here and my Instagram plenty of times. Beyond this, I have added a silk tiger print skirt from Rixo London, which I’ve yet to share because it is way too big for me and I am waiting to take it in (hey Mum, you know how I booked to come to see you for Christmas? Heads up I have a pile of alterations for you!!). Plus… yes, I am still going here, a classic black silk slip skirt from my favourite, Anine Bing. Safe to say, they are my new wardrobe obsession and I am in love!
SLIP SKIRTS + JUMPERS THE #1 INSTAGRAM APPROVED TRANSITIONAL OUTFIT
Instagram, is one of the main ways these days that I find outfit and styling inspiration. It’s a quick way to see what is new, trending and how your favourite styles are being worn worldwide. I follow a ton of fashion bloggers, obviously, but also love to follow stylists, designers, editors and models who get early access to new collections. This all filters into my styling, as I realise, I’ve replaced fashion magazines with Instagram, fashion blogs and Pinterest for style inspiration. I know I am not alone in this! Heck, I really hope that my own style here or on Instagram can be a source of inspiration to you too!
One look I see a lot on Instagram is a slip skirt with a jumper or sweater. Be it a fitted jumper or an oversized one, I love the jumper tucked into a slip skirt look. Actually, a jumper tucked into a mini skirt has always been one of my go-to looks, so a slip skirt just feels like a new alternative. I have paired the slip skirt and jumper combo with sandals, pump heels, boots or sneakers depending on how dressy or casual I want to be. It’s the best low key but chic look, perfect for transitional weather.
