I justify many purchases by knowing that the item can be worn year round. This skirt is a great example of that. As I have continued to purchase the midi length – the same rules apply to balance the look of a midi length when wearing in any season (another style and tips here). The easy addition of adding boots and a sweater, as shown below, will be very cozy when it’s colder. If considering year round use, consider the fabric and colors. This particular color scheme translates to fall and winter, as well as summer and spring.
