How I wear my orange skirt in fall

Bold fall style with orange and leopard print

This autumn I am totally into my new wardrobe addition, this straight wool skirt. Earlier this month, I featured this new orange skirt paired with my pink leather jacket, which is also a favorite piece of mine. In case you missed it, here is the link to the post that presents 15 different looks with a pink biker jacket.

Pairing orange with black is always a bit risky as these are the traditional “Halloween” colors. However, the combination makes totally sense and is even office appropriate when leopard print in its natural colors is involved and the cuts of all pieces are classic. In other words, classics with a twist.

Combine orange with leopard for an edgy classics with a twist look. #fallstyle Click To Tweet

Fall means shopping

I don’t know about you, but ever since I came to Alaska, I associate Halloween with bonfire and the onset of the holiday season. Maybe its because the Trick’n Treating is sort of kids’ paradise or like a visit in the candy store with all you can eat? Back when I lived in Europe, the holiday season did not start before the first of Advent. Depending on how the four Sundays before Christmas Eve fell, this could be late November or early December.

For us adults, Halloween means the onset of stressful shopping for gift for colleagues, friends and family. Take a look at my gift guide for inspirations and promo codes to save. A style recipe book is always a great idea. Hint, hint 😉

A carrot colored skirt is more versatile than you thin

It works with its complimentary color, i.e. blue, analogous colors, namely red and yellow, its muted color brown, or its tinted color salmon. When you want to go for edgy, go for color clash. Just add this fall’s It color purple or green in a color blog look. Yes, I admit doing so takes nerves. But life is too short to not have fun with dressing.

As a kid, my favorite play was dressing up my dolls and make new clothes for them. Maybe I never grew up and still play dressing up? Or as Iris Apple says [playing dress-up starts at age 5 and never ends. #quote Iris apple Click To Tweet

Why a cinnamon skirt?

I hadn’t bought anything orange ever since I had my colors determined in the 80s. I was classified as a Winter. Back then, they only distinguished four types: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. However, the icy pastels of winter always made me look washed out. Thus, I avoided them as I avoided deep saturated yellow, orange, aubergine, bottle green, colors I used to love when I was a kid. Actually, I am a deep Autumn Winter. Thus, orange is a great color for me.
