Skirts are a fashion essential, especially when the sun is shining strong. We all get our favorite minis out and love to sport them when we stroll the streets. However, skirts are no way a ’winter only’ thing. Nothing – and I mean nothing – should be able to stop you from getting in your favorite skirt and going out.
So how do you wear it in while staying warm and modest? Let’s find out!
Wear thick and heavy skirts
A skirt made of thick and heavy cloth will keep you warm; just make sure it reaches down to just below your knees to keep the legs properly insulated against the cold. Skirts come in woolen materials that feel airy and fall well. You should find something that does not look too bulky. A skirt made from good quality wool will feel smooth and will offer adequate protection against the cold.
Another solution is to wear a pair of fleece-lined leggings underneath your skirts. If the skirt is made of thin material then, use layering as a trick to feel warm and cozy. The fleece lining will be comfortable and will cling to your legs and not make the layering look bulky.
Try wearing a warm slip
Wear a slip underneath your skirt, you will find great designs that are perfectly discreet and won’t bunch up against the fabric of the skirt. If it’s extra cold then go for multiple layers and wear leggings as well.
Wear warm socks
A pair of thick socks will be the perfect remedy that will keep your feet and calves warm. Make sure they are long enough to reach up to the hemline of your skirt. Knee length woolen socks will keep your feet insulated; invest in a good pair and you will feel like someone nestled your feet in a comfortable blanket.
Wear a long coat
A long coat worn over your outfit will look elegant and it also works well with the flowing fabric of the skirt. Whether your skirt has a straight cut or an A-line cut, the long coat will look stylish. Throw on a warm scarf for an added touch of glamor.
Opt for Thermals
Thermal wear can help you stay warm in the coldest of temperatures. Contrary to the popular belief, thermal wear is not plain and boring, you will find some stylish and cute designs online. You can even wear normal skirts if you opt for wearing a thermal slip underneath it.
Put on Tall Boots
A pair of tall leather boots or any other kind of weather-proof boots will go great with your skirts, and help you avoid the bitter cold. Keeping the feet warmed up will ward off cold from your body. Pair up your favorite boots with your favorite skirt, hit the town and beat those winter blues.
With these tips, it is time to rescue the skirts you have banished to the back of your closet.
