No need to tuck away that denim skirt until next summer, as this article will teach you how to wear a denim skirt in winter! Denim skirts make for cute casual attire even on the frostiest of days. The key to pulling off a denim skirt is knowing how to style it so that you won't catch pneumonia! Some might think that this is easier said than done, but here are a few simple tricks that will help you to pull off a trendy and warm look in this chilly season.
Rule number one of wearing a denim skirt in winter is that it must be worn with a pair of tights or leggings, unless you live in a tropical paradise. People will question your sanity if you are walking around on a chilly day with bare legs. Avoid unwanted looks this winter by wearing a pair of black opaque tights or leggings. These always look great when paired with a light or dark washed denim skirt. Black leggings also make for a more neutral leg color, allowing you to have more fun with what you wear on top.
For those more daring and fun, try pairing your denim skirt with a pair of of colored tights. We love the idea of wearing a denim skirt with maroon knit tights this season. We also are obsessed with tights that feature a fun design, like Free People's Feather Tights at $38. If you sometimes think you live in Antarctica because it is so cold, then consider investing in a pair of Shop Bop's Fleece Lined Tights at $36. These are probably the warmest pair of tights on the market and will help you to pull off a stylish look without chattering teeth.
Now that you have styled your bottom half, it is time to turn your attention to what you will wear up top. Chunky sweaters and layered knits always look great when paired with a denim skirt. If you opted to wear black tights, then opt for color up top. Jewel-toned and red sweaters look particularly great with the denim and black combination. We also love the idea of wearing pastel colored or sequin knits on top. You can try on a silver sequin cami and a thin pink sweater for a dynamite look.
Those who chose to go with a more fun colored or patterned pair of tights should try keeping things simple on top to show off your sense of style. If you are wearing forest green tights or tie dye leggings, for example, then consider wearing a grey or white colored sweater. While you will want your clothes to express your personality, you don't want to wear too many overly fun pieces, as you risk looking like you got dressed in the dark.
Finish off your look with a great pair of shoes. We love the look of ballet flats, tights and denim on slightly warmer winter days. Boots, too, always help to pull a denim skirt ensemble together and are perfect for those cold winter months!
