How to adapt a satin skirt from casual to formal. I bought my navy satin skirt from Hopefashionuk last year. They have a similar one in camel this season. You can see me wearing it casually with a leather jacket and more formally with a simple top, jewellery and a scarf in the pictures below (taken May 2020). I have also changed my footwear from casual white trainers to a pair of low heeled black pumps in the second image. The skirt would also look good with a classic fitted jacket.
I recently had a question from a reader asking my advice for what to wear to attend a winter wedding. I think that a satin skirt would work well if you added a dressy jacket, a hat if you like hats and a pair of comfortable court shoes.

The chicatanyage scarf shop is now open. We have one scarf in a similar pattern to the one above in warm colour tones. We also have 100% cashmere scarves in three colours and 100% wool scarves. The St.Tropez market did not yield a wide choice of scarves this year. Many of the usual stalls were missing. However I am still looking to source some cotton scarves similar to the ones we stocked last year plus I may have found some tassel necklaces. Let me know if you would be interested in either or both.
