Skirt by Day Birger et Mikkelsen
Danish label Day Birger et Mikkelsen is renowned for its high calibre materials, details and embellishments – and this mid-length leather skirt is no exception. It's cut from buttery leather with a tactile croc effect finish, deep pockets and soft gathering through the front, while the length and material will shield your legs from biting winds throughout winter.
Tank top by Almada Label
Look to Finnish brand Almada Label for your ultimate wardrobe staples, such as this ribbed racer-back tank. It's crafted from responsible sourced cashmere and merino, which is soft and warm against the skin – and perfect to tuck into a cinched waistline.
Coat by Almada Label
If you're considering elegant, layered looks throughout winter, best to consider a slightly oversized fit when it comes to your outerwear. This piece from Almada Label is made from a thick virgin wool, alpaca and mohair blend – in line with the brand's commitment to durable, high quality, natural materials.
Boots by Day Birger et Mikkelsen
A black bootie is a perennial staple, and the ankle-grazing shape of Day Birger Et Mikkelsen's perfectly complements the proportion of a mid-length skirt. It's versatile enough to wear with jeans and shorter hemlines too.
