Skirts are never out of fashion. But then, there is also a long list of styles to choose from.
So here are some ideas on how you can dress up in a skirt this winter.
Ideal for the cold season, a long skirt helps to wrap your frame. This checkered oversized long skirt, gives a retro look to your wardrobe. Pair it up with a fur-collared top in any nude shade to complete the look. Keep accessories to as minimal as possible and wear high heeled shoes.
If you have a curvy silhouette then tube skirts are the way to go. Printed fabric with a plain top and tights will complement the look. A leather jacket is a must to complete the outfit. Choose boots or pumps to add finesse.
A-line skirts are for those who are tagged as trendsetters. Color blocks are the hues that are trending in this category. They can be worn with classic satin shirts or even printed artsy tops. Since it is winter, these just above the knee skirts can be worn with sheer leggings and sported with ankle-high boots.
Pencil skirts are all time favorites and flatter women with curves. Checkered styles are in, especially those in tweeds and wool. Full sleeved turtlenecks in black are ideal for these skirts. They are not only good for casual wear, but also double up for office wear. Team them up appropriately with medium length heels.
Feminine fashion is in and silk is the sure shot way to lend that look to your wardrobe. A brocade silk skirt in a royal color such as blue or scarlet red will do the trick. Match it with a contrasting embroidered top. You could also convert it into a three piece outfit by adding a vest or jacket.
Fur and Feathers
Miniskirts embellished in feathers are the latest trend for winter 2012. Pinks and blues are in. When coupled with sheer tops, they form the perfect outfits for a winter party. Match them with velvety boots and strut along. Go for minimal makeup and accessories to avoid looking too busy.
Another way to wear the mini skirt is the printed jacquard style. Go for shades of white and nudes with pleated fabric to make the skirt look elegant. Pair it up with contrasting neutral tops fabricated from satin. Accessorize with matching pumps.
