Our shop is bursting at the seams with wooly winter skirts. Wearing the wrong type of skirt during the cold winter months can leave you feeling more cold than chic. Choosing the right skirt and accompanying accessories will leave you feeling both warm and fashion forward. Below are three great choices for the winter.
Pick a skirt made of a heavier material. Sheer, lightweight fabrics look out of place and will only make you colder. Opt for heavier materials like wool, velvet and leather. A maxi-skirt in Winter will give you the least amount of hassle. Many maxi-skirts can even be worn with minimal to no leg protection. Pick out a skirt that extends somewhere between your mid-calf and the top of your foot, a few inches above your ankle. The longer the skirt, the warmer you’ll be.
A midi-length (knee-length) skirt will give you the greatest amount of flexibility. Midi skirts can be made to look professional, trendy, or flirty, depending on how you accessorize them. You will need additional leg protection to keep your calves warm, however. Knee-high socks, legging and tall boots are cozy choices for a midi-skirt. You can really be playful with your leg-wear while wearing a midi-skirt.
Although the narrow shape of a pencil skirt can restrict the movement of the wearer, the pencil skirt will give you the greatest amount warmth due to reduced ventilation. Pencil skirts are made to look professional as they fall to the knee and are super tailored for a close fit. Pencil skirts in the winter look cute and will keep you warm with tucked in long-sleeve tops, textured scarves and nylons. Don’t forget a long winter coat for extra warmth.
