I have to admit, I don't wear skirts. Like at all. It's weird. I am convinced that all skirt look weird on my body (which is a very broad, irrational claim), so I haven't worn a skirt basically since I worked at Lilly Pulitzer...three summers ago. Unfortunately for my self image but fortunately for my fall wardrobe, there is a crazy amount of freaking adorable skirts out right now. Specifically, from Madewell and Abercrombie.
Madewell is one of my favorite brands, especially for fall (have you seen their turtlenecks?). J. Crew is boring me and I honestly haven't found something I've liked there in a long time. So basically, they've been replaced by Madewell in my mind, and I don't hate it. Guys, Abercrombie is making a comeback, I can feel it. They have a ton on their website that is on my wishlist right now. That hasn't happened since like...7th grade. Regardless, here are my favorite skirts for fall from Madewell and Abercrombie & Fitch!
Plaid Skirt Walk into my house, you'll be hit by plaid. I love it. My family has an innate attraction to anything Scottish/British/Ralph Lauren-esque so this plaid skirt from Madewell immediately caught my eye. This could be really cute with a chambray shirt and black tights.
Suede Skirt Now from A&F, the suede skirt. I've also found some cute options on Revolve (see my fall style guide post) but I like how this is swingy. Suede skirts are very in right now. I like it.
Leather Skirt I like leather, I think it's hot, and worn appropriately, can look quite chic. Madewell has this asymmetrical leather skirt that would look so cool with a fitted black turtleneck. IT'S JUST SO COOL.
Herringbone Skirt This is really similar to my grey uniform kilt that I wore from grades five through twelve, so understandably it brings me back. Like the suede skirt, it's pretty swingy and would look great with riding boots!
