When conducting my wardrobe consultations, I always recommend that my clients put their strictly summer pieces away for winter and focus on appropriate clothing for the season. By moving warm weather pieces to another closet space or to be stored in dry cleaning bags under the bed, it helps to clear out space for their winter pieces to shine.
I always find that one piece that many of my clients want to move out their wardrobe for winter is the maxi skirt. Truth is however, that this item can most definitely be worn during the winter. Great for creating boho looks, the maxi skirt can easily be paired with leather, fur and oversized knits to create a cozy and stylish look for winter.
Here Are Some Rules For Wearing A Maxi Skirt In The Winter:
1. Combine With An Appropriate Top: The maxi skirt gives off a floaty vibe, so you need to make sure to anchor this item with a weightier pieces on top. Pair with a leather jacket or a big heavy sweater. This will help to transition the piece to be appropriate for winter.
2. Wear With Appropriate Footwear: For the perfect casual look during the day, pair with a motorcycle boot or flat. For a chic evening ensemble, use a healed boot or strappy sandal to elevate your look.
Here is how I wear my maxi skirt for during the winter, as well as some inspiration pics to get you pulling that maxi skirt out of your strictly warm weather pile.
