While pondering the coming of winter (hayyy Game of Thrones!) and more appropriately what one wears for said coming, I may have discovered a sartorial solution.
Cable knit sweater + skirt + thigh-high boots = an outfit functional and fashionable for chilly temps. Cable knit sweaters have been paired with skirts by fashion girls for quite some time but adding these Stuart Weitzman thigh-highs make the look winter-ready.
Plus, if you plan on GTFO'ing winter by heading to some tropical destination, the skirt will pair pretty with your new Kiini bikini and silver gladiator sandals. A seasonless skirt that does double-duty is a smart wardrobe investment and this Marc Jacobs marigold floral pleated option is pretty pickings (plus, marigold had a major moment at last night's Golden Globes when Jennifer Lopez absolutely slayed on the red carpet).
