Brrr, it’s been extremely chilly recently! We’re finally in the dark depths of Winter. A skirt, boots and a smart jacket is the perfect way to create a warm and stylish cold weather outfit.
Besides, I’m a big fan of pretty skirts in any weather.
I suggest wearing two pairs of stockings for warmth (I’m all about managing arctic Winter mornings!) Luckily, this outfit looks elegant with black, very opaque stockings – I wear 80 denier underneath and 40 denier on top.
How to style pretty skirts in Winter:
A Pea or Marine coat
One of the few benefits of having cold Winters in Victoria is getting the opportunity to wear beautiful coats! I bought this Pea coat several seasons ago. It comes just below the hips and the shape is ideal for straight, pleated or yoked skirts.
Don’t forget your boots!
Chunky flat retro boots
Classic black or tan riding boots if you want to be comfortable on your feet all day.
Ankle boots with a heel for a more polished look.
Scarves are a must. I search out scarves that match the colours of my skirt. If you love a bit of glam like me, dress up your coat with a faux fur collar!
Wear a gorgeous ring that picks up the colour of your skirt.
