One of my favorite things to mix and match around this time of year is skirts. Besides being extremely comfortable, they really are the perfect addition to your wardrobe in the winter months. If I had to decide on one designer as a number one choice, it would have to be Alice and Oliva. Each and every season their collection is better than the previous, I wont lie they are pricey but I feel really worth every cent. It will make you feel as though you are one of the girls walking in NYFW, sophisticated and effortlessly chic, for me this is brand you need to invest in. My first summer while working in New York, I bought this beautiful skirt and have never found a replacement that is any way better. You really must check out this seasons collection! Alice and Oliva are known for their lavish prints and textured jackets. If ever there was a moment you wanted to make a statement, these ladies will help you achieve it. One thing that is annoying while wearing a skirt is, what top will complement it and lets face it, you don’t want to make it frumpy looking. My favorite thing to wear with every season is a bodysuit. Once you get one you like you will probably never want to buy a top over jeans again. They are just that good and I’m not the only one to agree with this, with numerous online stores carrying a large selection, it’s a hard one to miss. Asos is always an excellent search option but my ultimate favorite for value and quality is Missguided. Not only do they look amazing but sometimes if not most of the time, you will be spoiled for choice with a great range of colours. How perfect?? Make sure to keep a close eye on the Alice and Oliva collection, I promise you its all you need to know for what’s trending or “in”, the following season. Photography by Kristen Walker.
