Who says you can’t wear skirts after the first cold front settles in? Pulling skirts out of their seasonal retirement is a great way to spice up your frosty wardrobe. The trick is understanding what to wear with your skirt. If you spot that mini you bought during a Labor Day sale, it is okay to lack patience waiting until the flowers begin to bloom before you can strut your stuff.
Lay your skirt out where you can see it because everything you wear is going to be coordinated with the style and color of the skirt. This Fashionista coordinates the lavender in her skirt with her belt and button up blouse tying the look together. Search through your legging collection to find the right type of legging to match the skirt of your choice. Next, decide how cold the day will be and use this knowledge to pick your boots. If it is temperate day, choose ankle high boots like this Fashionista, but if the forecast calls for a colder day, you want to be sure to protect your legs from the cold with knee high boots.
The smart glamour girl knows that where skirts fail, sweaters and jackets come in handy. Be sure to pair your skirt with a nice sweater and warm jacket to compensate. You can also trade the mini for a knee-length skirt and knee high boots. This is a look that can be worn to class, an important work meeting, or at a study session in the Morgan Library. A knee-length skirt with a slit down the side gives you the sultry edge you are looking for, while protecting you from brisk winter winds. Wearing a skirt in the winter is a great way to get the attention you desire while looking professional and scholarly during finals week.
Don’t be shy! Sport your skirt this winter season!
