Corduroy Mini Skirt & My “Outfit Formula” for Fall

October 11, 2018

fall outfit idea corduroy mini skirt

Happy Friday! I have been wanting to share this fall weekend outfit with you guys for ages, but wanted to wait until a Friday since it’s so perfect for a Friday night or weekend look. I really like the corduroy mini skirt trend that we’re seeing this fall, and when I saw this camel colored faux wrap one for under $30, buying it was a no brain-er.

My go to look for fall for a date night, drinks with friends & even general weekend adventures is definitely a mini skirt, a turtleneck, and over the knee boots. This pairing worked so well with my new faux wrap corduroy mini skirt, but honestly is a great outfit pairing with any mini skirt. This corduroy mini skirt actually comes in two other colors as well… I’m tempted to get it in hunter green as well!

So as you can probably tell from the above, I have one go-to outfit formula for fall:

Turtleneck + Mini Skirt + Over The Knee Boots

For that reason, I highly recommend investing in turtlenecks & over the knee boots this season. Here are some great black turtleneck options, and here are some black over the knee boots. I personally like black suede over the knee boots because they feel cozy and ‘fall like; but I’ve definitely seen bloggers rocking leather (or faux leather) OTK boots with this “outfit formula” so if you prefer the look of leather, you do you girl!

The one thing I will say about this mini skirt is that it is on the short side. For reference, I’m 5’7 1/2. It’s funny because at 21 I would have worn this and not considered it remotely short. I think I’m getting more conservative with age! If you’re 5’6 or shorter this will be the perfect mini skirt length (mini, but not too short). If you’re taller, like myself, just be aware that it may feel short on you. I just wear booty shorts underneath it and then feel fine with the length, but I wanted to give you all a heads up!

On a non-fashion related note, what are your favorite fall activities, fall recipes, etc? I am in full on gaga-for-fall mode at the moment (were at about the same level of excitement as my grade 8 self had for going to an N’Sync concert.. just for frame of reference).

My fall activity list at the moment consists of: taking my nieces to a Halloween event at Van Dusen gardens here in Vancouver, pumpkin carving, baking pumpkin things, and dressing up for Halloween. What else would you guys recommend I add to my list?! Let me know in the comments below! (… bonus points if it’s an activity I can do in this outfit formula… kidding. Sort of. haha).

  1. This outfit looks great on you. I am loving those corduroy mini skirts this year, except I don’t love the mini length anymore, lol.

      Thank you so much! And awww, fair enough! Thats what I like about this trend though, is it really can work for everyone. If you don’t like ‘mini’ go for a just barely above the knee – ie. still a ‘mini’ but with over the knee boots only a tiny bit of leg shows.

      Aw thank you Elise! So glad you like it! Part of why its my favorite outfit formula is because it works for everybody- find a turtleneck in a color you love, a skirt as mini or as covered as you want, and comfy OTK boots- heel, no heel- whatever works for you!

    Oo girl this outfit is so cute! I love that it is faux wrap because it has the cute look of a wrap style but not the hassle of one!

    What is the skirt sizing like?

    • Lee says:

      I’d say it’s standard with other Forever 21 items, which is smaller than other brands. I’m a size 4/6 and I’m wearing a large. The medium fit, but was a bit tight in the waist (and as I mentioned super short, so I would have gone up to the large just for length anyway since I’m tall). Hope that helps!
