Short, long, straight, flowy, sparkly, plain – skirts come in many different forms and we love them all! But how do you rock this leg-exposing trend in the winter? Follow our tips to stay warm (and fashionable!) even during the coldest days.
Maxi- or midi-length skirts should be a closet staple this season. Not only are these long, beautiful skirts even more comfortable than leggings, but also they look good on everyone, are easy to dress up or down, and will keep you warm. This A.L.C. midi skirt from Neiman Marcus comes in a sexy, pleated leopard print, which will make you look as fierce as you feel. Because the hemline falls above your ankles, you can show off your favorite booties or high-heeled boots underneath!
Or, rock a more neutral skirt by choosing this Giorgio Armani black maxi skirt. It is made with a semi-sheer, stretchy material that will look good with any color blouse on top – allowing you to wear it over and over again and look different each time.
Protect your legs from biting winds by wearing skirts made from cozy fabrics. This velvet maxi skirt from Chico’s is all-black with a sweet tulip-cut hemline to show off your shoes underneath. Even shorter skirts can work on a chilly day if they are made with velvet. This Topshop velvet mini skirt from Nordstrom is a sweet rose pink, which would look amazing paired with tall black riding books.
For the office, we like this pencil skirt made from sweater material at Express. Although it is thick and feels snug against your legs, it isn’t clunky; the form-fitting cut shows off your curves perfectly.
Finally, the easiest way to bring your skirts into the winter is by layering them. Start with something short, like this pink sparkly Topshop mini skirt, and wear black tights or leggings underneath. For extra warmth, add fuzzy socks and thick boots. Or go with a slightly longer skirt, like this mauve high-waisted tulle skirt from Express that hits right at your knees. Then, pair with your favorite chunky sweater that will keep you feeling toasty and looking glamorous from work to Happy Hour.
Just remember – as long as you are confident, and a little creative, you can make even your most summery skirts look gorgeous in the winter!
