Marks and Spencer Rust Checked Wrap Skirt and Navy Sweater

I spend the vast majority of my time in trousers of some description, but at his time of year I like to switch things up with skirts and tights. I only wear short skirts with tights, so now the weather has turned cool I’m digging out my mini skirts. While I’m not a fan of the long, dark nights of Winter I do love wearing boots, tights and fabulous coats.

One of my favourite autumnal colours is rust; this vibrant orangey brown perfectly reflects the falling leaves. As luck would have it, I picked up this wrap skirt in the Marks and Spencer outlet for just £7 a few months ago. I’ve had it stashed away, waiting for the temperature to drop. The slightly fuzzy material is lovely and soft, and thick enough to keep my bum warm in Winter!

I based the rest of the outfit around the navy lines in the skirt. Fitted, high neck sweaters are cold weather essentials for me. This one is a little bit see-through (particularly when the camera flash goes off!). But I love the waffle pattern and flared sleeves with black trim. The navy tights and ankle boots create a leg-lengthening effect, although longer boots may be a better option when it gets really cold.

This rust checked wrap skirt and navy sweater provided the perfect opportunity to show off my new necklace from Eternal Collection. The dark orange, brown and cream tones make it perfect for Autumn. I wear my other two necklaces from Eternal lots. The akoya pearl cubic zirconia and aurora crystal necklaces are classic designs that compliment so many outfits. This gorgeous Thanksgiving necklace features agate, crystal and frosted glass beads. It’s also available in a shorter length and there are matching earrings too. Another classic piece from one of my favourite jewellery brands, I’m sure I’ll be wearing this necklace frequently.

Have you had a look at the Eternal Collection website? There’s a huge range of beautiful jewellery to choose from 🙂

  6. This color combination is fabulous, Emma! And I am loving the short skirt with tights. So my thing!


  7. I love rust too! I have a fair amount of it! I just cant get enough! I love the skirt, and am really falling for Plaid more and more! Its so fun to wear tights and boots,! It is actually getting a little chilly now here. The necklace is a wonderful touch with the Fall colors and I love the combo of navy and rust!
    Enjoy your day!

  8. This outfit is so chic. The combination of burned orange with navy is so unexpect, but works very well. A great thing about the cold time of the year is that one can wear shorter skirts and get away with it because of the tights. Moreover, they cover all leg flaws including hair regrowth. LOL.

  9. These colors are amazing on you! The combination of navy and orange is fantastic! And, I like the tights that continue the color on your legs.

    A+++ for Style!

    That is such a cute little skirt! I love the color of it for fall and the color combo!

  20. Jill James says:

    Emma, this is a great little skirt and the colours pair so beautifully. Thicker tights always the one advantage of cooler weather. Enjoy your Autumn .

  21. Love this outfit Emma. I love the preppiness (is that a word?) of it and it looks great on you.

    Oooo I love these colors together! Really love that plaid for fall!

    This outfit is so perfect! I love that necklace – it was just made for that beautiful skirt. I’ve hung onto several above-knee skirts and I have tights. I think you’ve just inspired me to break some of those out to wear this fall.


  24. Cheryl Shops says:

    I’ve been loving navy lately—it’s so much softer and more flattering than black. It looks great with your coloring!
