You've armed yourself with your chunky knits, your brazen tights, your too-cute booties and, possibly, your winter hats. In all likelihood your summer sweets - fabulous dresses and flirty skirts - have gone the way of the nether regions of your closet. What better time to embrace the wool skirt? It's the feminine, elegant alternative to trousers and jeans, looks phenomenal with everything from crisp coats to bow-neck blouses, and somehow makes the season far more tolerable, to boot.
You don't have to spend a pretty penny on it, either. ASOS designed its Wool Touch Skirt ($64.03) with more than just great value in mind, though; it's also downright charming, washed in the most glorious wine hue and cinched at the waist with a pin-buckle belt. As it's on the mini side, you'll want to break out the tights for this one.
An A-line cut is flattering to most figures and looks a bit less severe during a season loaded with drama. This Halogen Belted Skirt ($78), available in both petite and regular varieties, is made with elegant menswear-inspired fabric in a smart espresso hue. The sleek patent belt adds a polished finish to what may be one of our favorites of the moment!
Women everywhere love the simplicity of the Banana Republic Lightweight Wool Pencil Skirt ($79.50). A tried-and-true workplace classic, it features an immaculate, straight silhouette and is impeccably tailored - just what you'd expect of a reliable staple piece.
We've got a thing for skirts that are affordable, versatile and available in multiple colors, so naturally we're swooning over this Lands' End Canvas Gathered Wrap Skirt ($26.99). If nothing else, it's incredibly relaxed. Use it to add punch to neutral ensembles (opt for the delicious aubergine) or play it safe with a neutral, like this cappuccino heather version.
