Skirts are among the most slept-on pieces in our winter wardrobes. (And I obviously mean slept-on in the colloquial sense—not the literal one.) We’re so caught up in our winter coats and our winter boots and our winter scarves (and hats and gloves) that winter skirts get the short end of the sartorial stick. They’re excluded from our mental pictures of our winter wardrobes, which tends to mean they’re excluded from our actual winter wardrobes, too. Because if we don’t think to buy them, we don’t buy them—and we don’t have them to enjoy all season long.
Some good news (which is also low-key bad news): Winter isn’t going anywhere any time soon. The first day of spring doesn’t officially arrive until March 20, which means we have a solid two months of frigid temperatures to endure before any shred of warmth returns to our lives. The upside of this is, of course, that it’s not too late to stock up on winter skirts. It’s, in fact, the perfect time to do so, because peak winter fashion season has passed, and tons of cold weather-friendly pieces are already seeing mark-downs.
So don’t hesitate. There’s a genuine plethora of winter skirts just waiting to meet their style soul mate. They’re here, they’re on-trend and they’re ready to help you stay warm in the chicest, most stylish way possible. So stop sleeping on them—all they want to do is make your life better.
