SoCal Fashion: Your new best friend in chilly weather

WOS Wrestling commentator and Milton Keynes fashionista SoCal Val loves a full maxi skirt and wants us to go for the “more is more” trend.

I n a busy world full of busy people, it’s such a shame when something as important as style falls to the wayside.

I’m here to protect you from this deadly pitfall! We need clothes that spark joy and provide glamorous movement to make our hectic journeys that much more enjoyable. Enter the full maxi skirt!

Your new best friend in chilly weather. Available in zillions of fabrics, textures and prints!

Being unapologetically “extra,” I opted to show you my favourite leopard version overlayed with a fringed blazer for even more twirlworthy moments.

This particular skirt, which I recommend wearing with tights and boots for warmth, is about five steps up from a hum drum pair of jeans or lacklustre leggings. Also known as: what everyone ELSE is wearing. How boring!

It’s impossible to wear a skirt like this and not feel #RegallyCarefree. Is that a real hashtag? I’m assuming Meghan Markle would approve of this sartorial attitude, for sure.

It means you’ll look and feel elegant, but playful at the same time. Speaking of playing!

Now is the time to pile on the accessories while you’re at it! Test out some new fashion glasses. Just for fun! No prescription needed!

Stack some rings, bangles and get into the “more is more” trend. Glamour is IN and all the celebs are elevating their looks with embellishments.

Actually, if you take the time to look around at where street style is today, you’ll realise it isn’t a trend at all: but a movement.

More is a LOT more fun than less. So make the most of your outfit and rest assured you’ll turn heads for all the right reasons.

Don’t forget a structured handbag as well! Think of it as your sophisticated anchor to your overall look. This one from New Look has serious staying power as it’s taken me from summer to autumn.

Purchased locally from our friends at intu Milton Keynes along with this unforgettable skirt. Get to shopping, fashionistas! Find your joy!
