How to dress up a skirt for the coldest of months.

Two things in the winter I hate, one the cold and two not being able to wear skirts and dresses. As you might already know I never have lived anywhere warm during the winter. So naturally, it can be challenging wearing skirts and dresses in the winter! I have been banging my head for the past few weeks over how I can incorporate dresses and skirts while keeping it chic and fashion forward. So today I am sharing some of my tips and tricks when it comes to dressing for the colder months. 

1. Tights are okay! Let me repeat they are OKAY! When we think of tights we think of old grandma and old school. (Or at least for me that’s what I think of) I always hated tights growing up I would purposely rip and tear them just so I didn’t have to wear them. But today I LOVE them so much! They keep you so warm and they now come in so many fashionable patterns and colors! They are totally fashionably acceptable and not at all grandma. 

2. Wear thicker fabrics! What I mean by that is wear a skirt or a dress that is made from a thicker material! This way you can stay warm and look chic! This skirt is a wool blend and I felt so warm in this skirt with my tights! And this day it was probably 27 degrees out! So I always say yes to thicker fabrics. When dealing with dresses see if they are layer able dresses! That is always an awesome fix for the colder months. 

3. Finally, say yes to adding some fun spring time accessories! Spring is literally just around the corner! Find some bright pops of color to incorporate into your wardrobe! For me, it is this adorable Torri bag that I have been gushing about recently! This bag adds such a fun pop of color to the look and automatically brings it into a transitional seasonal look! If you are someone that is scared of color don’t be!!! Take baby steps and eventually, it will lead up to more! 

Wishing you all a wonderful start to your week!

    I love all your tips on wearing skirts and dresses during the winter months, girlie! I love wearing tights now, but that wasn't always the case with me; I hated them, too! I love the different options there are now, different colors and prints to choose from that help to add more individuality and style to an outfit! I love the way you've styled your cute skirt here with the black and houndstooth coat, you look so chic! Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a wonderful Monday so far!XO,

    Oh I totally wear tights. Actually I use those tights that have a slight rip or tear to wear underneath my pants/jeans. They definitely keep me warm. And your coat is so gorgeous!
