Jacquard Skirt and Navy Flared Sleeve Jumper + Link Up

Jacquard Skirt and Navy Flared Sleeve Jumper

When I want to make a statement with my outfit and stay warm, an A-line skirt with boots is one of my favourite winter combinations. Plus, choosing a skirt with a dark colour palette in a more structured fabric gives you plenty of styling options.

For a smart daytime look I teamed this gorgeous jacquard skirt and navy flared sleeve jumper with burgundy boots and bag.

You can easily dress up a flared skirt with a camisole and heels for evening, or toughen it up it with biker boots and a leather jacket. You could even wear it with a slouchy jumper and trainers. For a smart daytime look I teamed this gorgeous jacquard skirt and navy flared sleeve jumper with burgundy boots and bag. My first thought was to choose a black top, but I decided to pick up on the blue in the skirt with this navy jumper instead.

I love the mix of colours in this skirt, and the sheen on the fabric makes them really vibrant. It has a rear zip fastening but also has elasticated sections at the sides which makes it very comfortable. The icing on the cake is the pockets! This skirt is from the Joanna Hope range at Simply Be. I had always (mistakenly) thought that Simply Be started at UK size 14, but in fact the clothes range from size 10 upwards.

You could easily switch from a daytime to evening look by changing your top and shoes.

I would say that the the fit is on the generous side, especially with the elasticated sections on the waistband. I’m 5’8″ and the skirt is what I would describe as a longer length midi on me. The material is stiff enough to hold its shape, making it quite a statement piece. You could easily switch from a daytime to evening look by changing your top and shoes. I’m looking forward to seeing how many different ways I can wear it!

How would you wear a statement skirt? I’d love to hear your styling tips!

    That skirt is so pretty. I love the midi length and the print is gorgeous. You look beautiful in the dark navy too!

    Emma, this entire look is so pretty, and I love how you paired the blue sweater with this skirt. You’re right, it really brings out the blue in the skirt, and the boots are perfect with it, as well! To me, a great turtleneck sweater looks good with so many things. Thanks for hosting, and have a great week!
