With winter comes cooler weather, but who said you had to tuck your skirts away?

There's no reason your skirts should be hiding in the back of your closet just because the temperature has dropped. Bring your favorite skirts back out and learn how to transition them back into your winter wardrobe with three simple ways!

Outfit Detail

1. Try Knit. Too chilly to show off your legs? Wear knit tights and your favorite pair of boots or booties with your skirt. A pair of knit tights can easily add warmth and style to your outfit.

Go simple with a classic pair of knit tights or add more to your look with patterned knit tights. Then, add a belt over your waist to cinch the outfit together. This is a simple way to cozy up and still wear that skirt you love.

Note: It hasn't exactly reached winter in California which is the reason I went tight-less with this outfit.

2. Sweaters Should Be Your Best Friend: A great skirt paired with a sweater is an incredibly simple outfit to pull together that's both chic and comfortable. Choose to tuck your sweater in (like I did) or leave it out - either way makes for a great outfit. For those extra chilly days, add a great coat to the mix.

3. Play With Textures & Styles: There is no better time to experiment with textures and styles than winter. Not only should you play with different skirt textures (wool, sequined or embroidered, leather/pleather) but try different styles. Midi skirts are a great fall trend, maxi skirts are essentials, and A-line skirts flatter every body type.

But don't limit yourself to just playing with the textures and styles of your skirt. The possibilities of an effortless look are endless. Here are a few ideas: Mix textures by wearing a chunky cable knit sweater with a leather skirt. Wear an embroidered sweater or patterned sweater with a simple midi skirt. Embrace layers on top with an A-line skirt and knit tights.
