Luckily, it rarely reaches below 30 degrees in Charleston, but that doesn't mean it doesn't get cold in the winter. However, since we spend so little time in the chill, it can be challenging to dress for the weather while maintaining our usual style. Check out these five tips for wearing a skirt in the winter without freezing so that you don't have to sacrifice your fashion sense to stay warm.
If you want to wear a thin skirt, you need to find warmth from somewhere else. The best way to do this is by layering your clothes. From leggings and tights to socks and boots, multiple thin layers can do the job of one winter coat.
Sheer Leggings vs. Thermal Tights
You might not realize it, but there is a big difference between wearing sheer leggings and thermal tights. The added warmth you'll get from the tights will replace any pants you might wear so that you can stay warm, even in freezing temperatures.
On warmer winter days, you might be able to get away with only wearing sheer leggings for protection. What matters most is that you have a layer between your legs and the outside air.
With a skirt, the most exposed part of your body will be your shins. You can cover them up by wearing knee-high boots. These tall boots will give you the freedom to wear a short skirt or dress in the winter while still covering your shins in a thick layer of warm leather.
Tall Knit Socks
Knee-high knit socks are currently very trendy, and they also make for great thermal gear. Practical and trendy knit socks will look great with a high or low-cut boot, protecting your legs from the winter winds.
Rather than opting for a knee-length skirt and leggings, consider a long dress that will cover your legs; depending on the weather, this may be all the cover you need. The ideal long skirt length should fall somewhere between your mid-calf and the top of your foot so that it doesn't drag on the ground or in the mud.
With these five tips for wearing a skit in the winter without freezing, you can keep wearing cute clothes even in the middle of January. Explore the online shop at Two Cumberland if you're looking for a trendy and unique boutique skirt for this winter, spring, or summer!
