Now's officially the time to plan your winter wardrobe, and though it's easy to rely on your favorite jeans-and-sweater combo during the six-plus months of snow and rain, sometimes, switching up your outfit formula is exactly what you need to lift your mood. Enter: long-skirt outfits that are as practical as your go-to pants-and-knits ensembles but feel slightly more elevated and sophisticated.
Long skirts are great for the wintertime because they offer up maximum coverage. Plus, if you choose to wear tights, it's easy to conceal them under the full-length garment; although, of course, you can also let the hosiery peek through for added color or texture. As for what to wear on top? The maxi skirt works great with everything from an oversize knit you can knot to a prairie blouse to a tight-fitting bodysuit ready for tucking.
