As the colder weather covers much of the globe the first thing that many grab out of his/or her wardrobe is a coat. The second item grabbed can assumed to be a pair of boots, probably new and fresh out of the box. A sweater, jeans, or leggings, and a thermal are to be put on next to make a complete outfit. All of the items bring a promise of warmth and comfort that is extremely desired during the colder months. So bringing out a skirt could be alarming to the senses because it just barely touches the territory of warmth. But rest assure skirts can most definitely be winter proof. The key is to layer and layer until there is a feeling of irresistible warmth.
Skirts do not go anywhere in the colder months. In fact the hemlines stay short and material stays thin. But in knowing this detail one still has the desire to incorporate a skirt into a winter outfit there are certain items that must be included to achieve a winter proof look.
The first is a good pair of boots. This is the part of the outfit that it pays to invest in the highest quality. Use the length of the skirt as a guideline on what pair of boots to purchase. If the skirt is a maxi or floor length, use an ankle bootie to complete the look. Try this pair from Madden Girl for $38.47
The buckle details and low heel will keep your outfit on trend and the skirt from becoming a broom.
Knee high and above the knee skirts require a higher boot. So if the skirt is above the knee try an over the knee boot like this pair made by Guess for $159.00
This boot will definitely cover the parts of the leg that the skirt misses and add a classic finish to an outfit.
A coat is the next item to add to the mix as it is the one piece that can make or break the outfit. Since the skirt is the focal point of the outfit, keep the coat simple and go for a parka like this one made by H&M for $49.95.
Add a belt, scarf, and tote and the outfit is complete.
So there is a way to make skirts okay to wear in the colder season. Just don’t make them an issue.
