Classic silhouettes are the type that never go out of style and have universal appeal. One of our favorites to rock – yes, even in the winter – is the short skirt/long jacket look. While the polar vortex digs its icy fingers into other regions around the world, the Middle East’s mild winter means you can get away with ensembles that most other people can only wear during the summer.

Within the framework of the short skirt/long jacket silhouette, there are endless styling options to choose from. You can drape the jacket over your shoulders for an “editor look”, swap a mini dress for a mini skirt, experiment with how the lengths match up, and more – just make it your own in any way you choose. For inspiration on how to get the look, click through Savoir Flair’s celebrity-filled gallery of 20 diverse styles that will inspire you to take this classic silhouette to a whole new level of cool.
