When it’s not quite winter anymore but it’s not quite spring, what do we wear? I can tell you that this has been a hot topic of discussion on the Who What Wear UK desks this week, especially with the pressures of LFW dawning upon us once again. There was talk of pastel colours, split-front trousers and refreshed denim, but the one thing we all settled on as a great transitional look was the classic skirt-and-boot combo.
This season, the skirt needs to say spring but the footwear needs to say ”Do you realise we still live in the UK?” Plus, it’s a great way to extend the lifeline of those dream boots you invested in recently. And trust us—the look is so easy to adapt. Don’t forget that when March hits, you can finally start shedding some layers with bare legs and ankle boots.
Whoever you are and whatever your personal style, there’s a skirt-and-boot pairing out there for you. Whether you wear an eternally chic pleated skirt with heeled knee-high boots or a colour-coordinating look, you can’t really go wrong.
