The River Island dip hem skirt

Now that the weather is transitioning into autumn and winter, I'm finding that as much as I love the look of skirts and dresses with tights, I can't really get away with the shorter versions any more - unless I want to a) freeze to death or b) give someone an eyeful of my nether regions thanks to a surprise gust of wind, which obviously isn't ideal. That's why I'm loving maxi/dip hem skirts (or asymmetrical hem skirts, high-low skirts, whatever you want to call them.. so many names for one item of clothing! :P) at the moment. Pair them with tights and some nice flats or ankle boots and you can be quite cosy whilst preserving your modesty at the same time.

I got this River Island skirt about a month ago, while it was still warm in fact, but I actually prefer the look of it with tights and flats, which makes it ideal for me at the moment. River Island actually have a few of these skirts in different styles and colours, which I love, so I may repurchase soon. Of course, I paired them with my favourite Topshop flats (are you getting sick of reading about them yet? ;) )


Cropped faux leather jacket: TRF/Zara (from last year)
Black top (not clearly visible): TRF/Zara
Dip hem skirt: River Island (can be found here)
Watch: Michael Kors
Shoes: Topshop studded loafers

The one thing I love about these colder months is sitting inside and snuggling up in front of the TV with a cup of tea, which is what I plan to do now - bliss!

What do you think about this style of skirt for autumn?
