One Skirt For Three Seasons

Is it possible to style one skirt for three seasons?  It sure is, with a few simple tricks.  In this post I will show you how I not only created three completely different looks with one skirt, but also how I was able to wear it in three different seasons!



I picked up this mustard floral skirt at Charlotte Russe for only $4.99.  I thought I had struck gold when I saw it.  I loved the color and the style.

The first time I wore this skirt was to a zoo in South Carolina.  It was a hot day, so I paired it with a sleeveless purple tank, rose gold walking sandals, a black straw hat, and I carried a straw bag.


In the fall I paired the skirt with a light weight long sleeve top, denim vest, beige straw hat, and open toe booties.  I carried a straw bag with blue and beige colors.



Now that it is Winter in Wisconsin (I know the calendar says it's still fall, but trust me, it's winter in Wisconsin.  We've already had snow and temperatures in the single digits) I paired the skirt with a white sweater, fur vest, brown slouchy boots, a brown bag, and I put a brown belt around my waist.



I only wore the fur vest as outerwear.  When I got to my destination, I removed the vest.  



Everything I'm wearing in this post is old, but I will link to similar options at the end of this post.

I chose a brown bag to coordinate with all the other shades of beiges and browns in the outfit.


Slouchy boots are definitely trending this season.  I was smart, and saved mine from many years ago. If there's anything I've learned about fashion in my life it's that trends ALWAYS come back in style;  so if there is something you've spent a lot of money on (like boots) and they go out of style, just put them away for awhile.  I can guarantee you they will be BACK in style.



I added this brown belt for two reasons.  First, it is the same shade as the boots so the belt ties the entire outfit together.  Second, the belt provides some shape to this outfit.  Without it, the outfit could come across as a bit frumpy due to all the long, loose clothing.


For jewelry, I wore my Native American pieces I picked up on my Utah vacation.  I thought the style fit the boho vibe I had going on, and the bright colors picked up the colors in the skirt and pulled them up to the neckline.



Even though the skirt is a thin cotton material,  I stayed cozy warm on this 40 degree day because of the sweater on top.  I also wore pantyhose under my skirt.  I know pantyhose are no longer "in", but I knew no one would see them under my skirt and with the tall boots.


The skirt is shorter in front and longer in back.


I think the main reason this skirt works for three seasons is because of the color.  The colors are perfect for fall, summer, and winter.  I think it would be more difficult to make a pastel colored skirt work for three seasons.  So my suggestion if you are trying to buy less clothes and extend their life into more seasons, is to be choosy about color and only pick colors that would work for more than one season.


So do you have a favorite look, fall, summer or winter?  Or do you like them all?  I'd love to hear from you.

  2. I love to wear summer dresses in winter, so I think this is a great idea! That skirt is far to pretty to wear only in the summer!

  4. It looks great styled for each season. Hard to pick a favorite, but maybe Fall? Could be because sweet Alethea is in the photo too because it does look so nicely styled for each season. And such a great buy too!

    1. Thank you. I don't know about spring. I always think light colors or pastels for spring, but I'll give it some thought.

  11. What a versatile piece. That darling mustard skirt looks completely different styled each way. I like your faux fur vest. Mine is going to be donated tomorrow. Never felt confident in it - always felt like a cave woman, or worse yet, cave man. Yours lays so much better than mine.

    1. Thank you! That's so funny that you say that about your vest. I had another fur vest, a black one, that I also donated. It was very thick and the fur was long and "hairy" looking. I never felt comfortable in it either. The vest I'm wearing in the pictures just has fur on the front, the back is a sweater knit. It's very thin, so it doesn't add extra bulk to my frame. The fur is also shorter. Those little details make all the difference in a fur vest.
