People tell me winter is just around the corner, but I have yet to see evidence of this myself. Here in West Hollywood, in fact, we're walking around in jeans, T-shirts—maybe a light denim jacket when those Santa Ana winds really start blowing. Meanwhile, my East Coast colleagues have already pulled out the big guns, i.e., puffer jackets, peacoats, and other items I don’t own. So, you can imagine I was a bit surprised to take note of one particular winter-ready outfit formula on Instagram that feels useful for us all. I’m talking, of course, about pairing a good midi skirt with a good pair of boots. (New Yorkers, y’all might want to add tights.) Keep reading to see five pairings I’ll 100% be wearing this season.
