Bare legs when it’s 20 degrees outside? So chic! But, nobody looks good with a case of frostbite. Enter top designers like Christian Siriano, Anna Sui and Nanette Lepore — who all proved that with the right styling tricks, you can rock that July-favorite staple even when it’s totally freezing outside.
Follow our guide below to pull off wearing skirts in the winter.
Wear tall boots
A simple way to cover your bare legs in the winter? Wear super-tall boots. Your best bet? Find a skirt that goes just past your knee, and wear knee-high boots. That way, your skin will hardly be visible. Bonus: Wearing knee-high socks inside your boots will give you just an extra hint of more warmth.
Rock a long coat
The key to wearing a skirt in the winter is to layer to stay warm. Donning a shorter skirt? Then ensure you top off your look with a longer coat to cover more of your bare legs.
Slip into tights
Nervous about showing even a hint of bare skin? Don’t worry. Just slip into a pair of tights. That way, you’ll stay toasty all day long. Plus, black opaque tights paired with ankle booties couldn’t be any cuter right now. Score!
