An easy to wear skirt, and a burgundy biker jacket

This outfit, or variations of it,  have been on constant rotation over the past couple of months. I bought the skirt and the sweater in December and i wore it a lot over my birthday week and then to the school play, then out for lunch and so many more days. Its just easy, stretchy and comfy and perfect for so many different occasions. I've loved wearing this outfit, sometimes i wear with a black biker jacket, sometimes a gilet, with black knee high boots or flats. Versatile yet comfy.. it doesn't get much better in my books.
The great thing about the skirt are the colours within it make for a great remixing palette. Greys,white, navy and burgundy are easy to mix in to the rest of the outfit. Today i brought in my favourite burgundy biker jacket and finished off with some greys and a baby blue. I hadn't worn this duo (the sweater and the skirt) this way before but needless to say i shall be wearing it again!

Skirt: New Look
Sweater, Scarf & Boots: F&F
Jacket: Primark
Bag: Primark

Do you have any outfits that work hard for you?

 Here's a couple more ways this hard working little duo has been worn:



  1. Colorwise is just perfect for you. Otherwise as well :-) What a wonderful outfit and in harmony with your new hair color. You look amazing...better and better with each post if that is even possible.

  2. I love this skirt! I'm normally quite well-informed with what New Look are offering, but I missed this one! Such a unique print. Love the colour combos in this post too... so well put together! CC x

  3. What a fab skirt Rachel & I just love it teamed with your biker jacket just stunning.

  6. The skirt is fantastic. But what really struck me is your lipstick color! What a gorgeous color on you! The perfect mixture of burgundy and Marsala. You really paired the outfit well with lipstick for sure!

  13. Nice said! Blog is nicely maintained. Fashion is moving on. To stay trendy, see yourself in maroon skinny jeans! They really add a nice shape to your body.

  14. I love that phrase, "Outfits that work hard for you!" Great way to put it. You are making me think too....I will report back on this topic.

    I love the skirt! And yes, so many ways to wear it! I need to incorporate more navy into my wardrobe I think.

    Thanks for the inspiration this post has stirred:D

  15. I always love burgundy and navy together - it's such a great color combo. I love the addition of the baby blue to brighten up the outfit.


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  16. Aah! That jacket, with your hair color = amazing! Gray + burgundy is awesome!. I don't usually do navy, but I may try this now!

  17. i really like the burgundy jacket with the pale blue of the scarf, it's a colour combo I was inspired to try a little while ago thanks to the wonder that is Pinterest! Great pattern on the skirt too, can see why you're getting lots of wear out of it.

  18. I have a jacket almost exactly like yours! I just love how yours looks paired with all the navy blue pieces. I'm definitely inspired to pair mine with that color too. You look fantastic!
