No matter how cold it is in the winter, that doesn’t change that fact that we want to look smokin’ hot and stylish! We wear skirts in the summer to show off our flirty, girly side. Who is to say that we can’t do the same thing in the winter? But how do I do that, you might ask? Shop LA Style has the answers for you!
Take a look at our Splendid Circle Skirt in Black for example.
Though the color is winter appropriate, the fact that the skirt is above the knee could pose a few problems for anything below 60 degrees. How can you make this skirt winter wise?
What TO DO:
First option: TIGHTS! This is the time of the year when tights are not only acceptable, but encouraged! They not only keep your legs warm but depending on which color you choose, they can lengthen your legs and tie together your entire outfit. Leggings are also an option.
Second option: Layers. Take that cute sweater and throw it over your top! This gives your upper body another layer to keep you warm.
Third option: Long sleek coat/ cardigan. Choose this option if you know that it will be warmer where you will be going. There is nothing worse than dressing for the freezing weather outside, then arriving at your destination and having it be 80 degrees inside. With a coat or cardigan, you have the option to take off that layer and be comfortable in a skirt and top.
Fourth option: Scarf. This may be my favorite option because a scarf is technically an accessory! So you can actually make yourself warmer by accessorizing correctly, who knew! Match your scarf to your skirt or choose an accent color, it is totally up to you. You’re free to accessorize in other ways as well, like the Gorjana Buckley Cuff in Gold shown above.
Fifth option: Tall boots. You’d be surprised how warm calf-high or knee-high boots can keep you! Plus underneath the boots you can wear warm socks AND tights. Warm feet, happy woman.
What NOT To Do:
Add too many layers- this can make you look frumpy. No thank you!
Go bare- Your legs will be absolutely freezing. If you do not want to ruin your outfit with colored tights, opt for a nude pair. Either way, this will keep you warm. Don’t just go bare skin.
Wear open-toed shoes- You should really only wear open-toes shoes in the winter if you like frostbitten toes. In the winter, always wear close-toes shoes to keep your feet warm and protected from rain/snow/cold air/etc.
