I have been looking for long skirts for a while now and I finally found one that I like. I think this particular length is known as “tea-length” skirts?

Paired with a Topshop dress/slip. I can only wear it as a top because the bottom is so sheer that it leaves nothing to the imagination. I am really stumped as to how to coordinate it otherwise.

The rows of vertical pintucks on the bustier of this dress reminds me somewhat of vintage nightgowns.

Without the jacket. I have not figured out how to wear the jacket yet. The lapels are asymmetrical and draped and I do believe that there is more than one way to wear it.

I think paired with a pair of warm stockings, this skirt will make a warm Fall coordinate.

Outfit Breakdown:

  • Jacket: Zara, London
  • Dress (worn as top): Topshop
  • Skirt: FemmeX
  • Shoes: Sonia Rykiel for H&M

    Thanks Abi! <3

    The best thing was that I snagged the jacket on the sales rack for only around 8 pounds! Cheap clothes for the win. 😀

    I like the cut & texture of the wool skirt (it’s wool right?), you’re lucky to be this skinny, not everyone can pull it off. Just a suggestion: bunny ears or a ribbon headband might look cute with your outfit.
