The Absolute Warmest Way to Wear a Miniskirt Right Now

We're in the last moments of 2016, and if you're feeling festive, why not bust out a miniskirt and end the year with a bold ensemble? And unless you're ringing in the New Year in Miami, ditch the tights in favor of leather pants tonight. We've seen some of our favorite style stars embrace the dress-over-pants combination, and a mash-up of a mini with chic leather skinnies is our idea of a statement look for this season. Oh, and it's warm.

Layering is the key to any stylish winter look, and this unexpected pairing is an easy way to breathe new life into closet regulars. Traditionally, skirts and pants are labeled mutually exclusive pieces, but runway trends and the street style stars have proved otherwise and have made a strong case for the unlikely coupling. The secret to doubling up is to wear your sleekest leather pants under a wrap skirt to ensure a comfortable fit and balance the two pieces. And just like that, you've got a cozy pairing that will guarantee you have the coolest outfit in the room.
