Feeling cold but don’t want to stick to jeans and pants all winter long? Guess what? You don’t have to. And no, I won’t write – grab those ugly thick tights, and off you go. No! You can wear your favourite skirt in winter without thick tights or pants under the skirt and not freeze while walking around in the cold. All you need are these two pieces. And a right skirt, of course.

Winter is too long for us to walk around dressed only in pants and jeans. Sure we love them. But not as nearly as we love skirts and dresses. Oh, that frill when we turn around! Doesn’t just feel amazing? So why saving our favourite clothes in the wardrobe and waiting for spring to wear them again? Because of the cold? No way!
I mean why would we when we can make the cold go away merely by choosing the right skirt and style it with the right pieces. And no thick tights are not that piece that will save us from cold in 2019.
Of course, it could if we wanted. But we don’t. At least not with every single skirt in our closet. Just with a tweed mini skirt. Ps. Go here to see how.
HOW TO WEAR SKIRT WHEN IT’S F* COLD
So how to wear a skirt when it’s freezing cold this winter, and you don’t want to wear pants, OTK boots or thick cotton and silk tights under the skirt?
There is something you else apart from pants, over the knee boots and thick tights you can style with every skirt or dress that won’t downgrade your look. But make you feel warm even in the Siberian cold.
Yes, you guessed it. It’s your favourite coat of the season. Although not alone. You still need this one other piece.
Take a look at the fashion cheat sheet to find that other piece now. And keep reading to find out more about that particular piece.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
And here it is, the fashion cheat sheet that will help you pass the cold test in a skirt. Be sure to save and pin this fashion cheat sheet and put it next to your favourite skirt. This way you will always know how to style it in winter.
Ps. You can shop everything you see me wearing by clicking on the items in the fashion cheat sheet or in the gallery below. You will, however, also find links in the copy.
Starting with the essential piece of this winter outfit that will make you feel warm wearing skirt in the cold. The teddy coat. Or should I write your favourite winter coat?
I’m wearing Mango teddy coat (shop here). As said in my previous post (over here), this coat has a small defect. It likes to wrinkle. So if you are shopping at Mango, better get this one. Wrinkles are harder to be seen on a tan or brown coat than on a white coat.
Or find your off white teddy coat that you will be able to match with white Ganni cowboy boots in the gallery below.
WHITE COWBOY BOOTS
Mentioning the white Ganni cowboy boots. Good news! These fashionable cowboy boots are back in stock. And you can shop them here. But hurry! You don’t want some B* (brunette or blond obviously) steal it from under your nose, do you?
Ps. Once you get your pair of white cowboy boots, be sure to check this post. Over there you will find 5 new fashion cheat sheets showing you 5 new ways to style your new white cowboy boots.
Oh, in case you get yourself tan teddy coat, shop these Ganni cowboy boots. You know, to match the coat.
Finally, the second must-have piece that will make this winter outfit warm enough to fight the cold even though you are dressed in a skirt. The sweatshirt.
I bought this sweatshirt from Tommy Hilfiger (shop here) in Montreal once when I was freezing, and it has been my staple winter top ever since.
Not only it’s warm, and easy to put on (important information for all of you who tend to be late), it’s also easy to style. You can even wear it to work if you wear it under a black blazer. Ps. Go here to see how.
Oh, and also check this sweatshirt from Burberry.
PINK VELVET SKIRT
Lastly, the item that is actually the main reason why we are even talking about this topic. The skirt. Pardon a pink velvet skirt. With an emphasis on velvet this time.
Why velvet? Because it makes this midi pink skirt the second warmest skirt in my closet. In short, if you want to feel extra warm in the cold, put on velvet skirt.
Whatsoever, velvet or not. While dressed in teddy coat and thick cotton sweatshirt I’m pretty sure the material of your skirt won’t matter much. Velvet, tweed, silk, suede, cotton or denim, you will feel warm in any skirt just by putting on a thick sweatshirt and a teddy coat over it. Ps. Go here to see how to style the same coat and boots with a mini white denim skirt.
MORE WINTER SKIRTS AND WARM WINTER OUTFITS
So this is one way to fight the cold in your skirt. No, it’s not the only way. But it is one of the most sophisticated since we are not wearing thick tights, over the knee boots or pants under the skirt.
By the way, how do you wear skirts in winter? Do you even wear skirts when it’s freezing cold? Or do you put skirts in closets and wait for spring before you dress your favourite skirt again?
