Styling Skirts For Winter

It’s cold out, but that doesn’t mean that your Winter staples should exclusively be jeans and woollen tailored trousers. Have you thought about incorporating skirts into your daily dressing? They’re probably more versatile than you think and to me they’re the perfect layering item underneath a cropped knit jumper. To be honest the possibilities are endless! With the assistance of your favourite classic mid-length coat, some warm tights and a woolly scarf you’ll be stylishly snuggled and ready to face the cold. Here’s how…

The Coat

The type of Winter coat that works for styling layers is something relaxed and slightly oversized. This cut can be easily layered over your snuggly, cropped knit and high-waisted pleat skirt. I opt for a muted tone as it works with an array of colours. Here are a few that i’m loving right now…

The Knit

The key to Winter layering is to choose a few items with contrasting lengths and a cropped jumper is the perfect starting point when layering over a high-waisted skirt. Opt for a chunky, boxy number, it’ll work well over a fitted silhouette et voilá you’re good to go!

The Skirt

The centre piece of this post; the high-waisted pleat skirt is just SO easy to wear! Play with proportions and juxtapose this fitted silhouette against oversized layers for ultimate Winter warmth! Here are a few of my favourites…

The Scarf

Need something to add a little extra warmth? Then look no further! Choose a woollen fringe scarf in a block colour. Whether it’s a muted hue or a statement jewel tone, the wide shape and long length mean it’ll work well styled as a shawl or looped around your neck. In my opinion, the Acne Canada scarves are a wardrobe staple!
