At this time of year I always find it almost impossible to know what to wear. I want to cling onto wearing summer dresses for as long as possible but the reality of Scottish weather means that’s not always possible.


Before moving onto jeans, tights and heavy coats I transition into wearing long skirts with comfy and cosy sweaters. A lightweight midi skirt like this pleated style from Boden is perfect paired with a classic Breton on warmer days or a short jumper or cardigan when it’s a little chillier. A pair of pumps or heeled boots also transform the look from day to night.


I’ve been searching for the perfect pleated skirt for what feels like years now and after this Boden skirt caught my eye in one of the latest collections I knew it was perfect. The colour, named conker, is ideal for autumn but there are two other jewel-like shades available - I have the green version saved to my Pinterest wishlist board.

Stores, both on the high street and online, are stocked full of pleated skirts at the moment as well as plenty of midi length styles which can be worn from now until next spring. Here are a few of my favourites.
