I have a thing about embroidered pieces. They don’t require much effort; you just throw them on and let the detail do all the talking! You don’t have to worry about accessorising either, as the patterns are usually busy enough without adding fussy jewellery. A simple ring and handbag would suffice!
When I spotted this embroidered skirt in H&M recently, I had to have it! I thought that the warm autumnal colours of the embroidery stood out against the black backdrop but weren’t too garish at the same time. And at £29.99, it was a complete bargain too! An ideal pre-payday treat, don’t you think?
The skirt is also quite a versatile piece as it looks great with both bare legs and tights. This means that I can wear it in the colder months and when the weather starts getting warmer again next year. I can imagine teaming it with tan ankle boots and a beige trench coat during the spring for an easy transitional look. Sorted!
Here, however, I’ve paired it with my trusty black Zara polo neck with split sleeves, which I seem to be wearing a lot at the moment. It looks chic with everything and I love the gold button detailing on the sleeves – they add a luxury feel to it. It’s also good for tucking into skirts as it’s not too thick! I like that it doesn’t detract away from the embroidery of this H&M number either.
I’ve gone for a tan handbag instead of my usual black because I wanted to give the outfit a lift rather than look like I’m wearing too much black. I think that the tan works well with the colours of the embroidery and gives the outfit a lovely autumn vibe.
Would you wear this outfit? Let me know your thoughts!
