Each fall season many of us wonder ‘how to wear long skirts in the fall’ when putting together our autumnal wardrobe. Knowing how to style your long skirts this season is super helpful for saving you time and for looking put-together each morning when you get dressed.
Fall is such a wonderful time for fashion, and for a lot of people it’s their favourite season. Bundling up in scarves and jumpers, putting away the summer clothes and choosing more elegant clothing like long skirts for some reason is just so appealing. The fall aesthetic is undeniably beautiful.
With this in mind here is a how-to style guide for putting together long skirt outfits to help inspire you this fall…
1. Wear a long skirt with a turtleneck for a chic look
Pairing your long skirt with a turtleneck creates the perfect fall outfit. Turtlenecks are timeless and look so classy as part of an outfit, plus they provide just the right amount of warmth for fall weather.
Choose a turtleneck of a simple colour that will pair well with as many of your long skirts as possible. I like cream, black, grey and dusty pink, as they match with everything!
Finish the outfit with warm tights and ankle boots for a polished day time look. This outfit combination would also work great for the office, if your company has a business casual dress code.
In the above image I paired two of my long skirts with a cream and a pink turtleneck, to show how put together this style of outfit looks!
2. Pair a long skirt in the fall with heeled black ankle boots
Black heeled ankle boots are a fall wardrobe staple, as they pair so well with fall clothing. This quintessentially fall style boot looks so stylish with long skirts of all styles and patterns.
In the above image I paired my black ankle boots with two differently patterned long skirts, that incorporate fall toned colours. I love this pairing, as it works so well, creating a streamlined silhouette.
Go for sleek boots with a tall shaft that fits to the calf for a seamless look. Wear with or without tights – both ways look great!

3. Match your long skirt with a crisp white blouse for the office in fall
There is something so chic about a crisp white blouse. Pair one with an elegant long skirt and it’s a match made in heaven.
This style is perfect for the office, especially when finished with heeled court shoes, as styled in the above image. For extra warmth in the fall months add a cropped tailored jacket with a tweed-style design for a classy touch.
Long pleated skirts look particularly good with a crisp white blouse, making the outfit look effortlessly expensive and put-together.
4. Wear long skirts in fall with a cropped, frill cuffed jumper for a trendy silhouette
There is something so feminine about frilled cuffs. This trendy style looks great on cropped jumpers for an adorable fall aesthetic. Pair with a long skirt and you create a gorgeous stylish silhouette in seconds.
In the above image I paired a frill cuffed cropped red jumper with a black pencil skirt to highlight how flattering this pairing can be. I finished the look with a red handbag and black boots to tie the outfit together. Wear with or without black tights, as pictured above both styles work well for fall.
Cropped jumpers are so on-trend this fall, on shelves and available in online stores everywhere. Why not treat yourself to one to pair with more form fitting long skirts in fall.
