My favourite trend from the Summer

Summer is well and truly behind us and Autumn has hit the UK. I love being able to look at my wardrobe and picking out summer items to match and pair with cosy big knits, scarf's and boots. Along with colour blocking, one trend I will be wearing in the colder months is the maxi skirt.

I love wearing the flowing long skirts with summer tops, wedges or flip flops and feeling very girly and really don't want to leave them hanging in my wardrobe over the colder months. Granted, I don't think I can pull them off in the snow - Maxi skirt and wellies??? Um... Nope it wont work (no doubt I will try it out though).

The images above are some that I had stored away on my computer and I love how they are all styled (to help me with some inspiration) and the last image is a great example of a maxi skirt for the colder months. 

Are there any trends that you'll be carrying into Autumn from the Summer?

  1. LOVE maxi skirts but I never got to find a decent one! SO annoying, maybe for the winter with a slubby knit XO

  2. I'm totally with you on the maxi skirt hun & for me coloured denim has translated well from summer brights to autumn hues xoxo

  3. FABULOUS collection of images! Summer is just getting going here in Brisbane, and I've stocked up on maxis too. I love that they're romantic and comfortable, can be layered for cool mornings, are totally work appropriate, and they're the perfect canvas for showcasing spectacular accessories.

    Another summer trend to push into fall - how about neon accents with warm neutrals?

    Happy autumn!
