How to Wear a Maxi Skirt This Winter

Forget what you thought you knew about how and when to wear maxi skirts. The warm-weather staple works just as well in the cold-weather months—it just takes a few extra steps to make the flowy garment winter-appropriate.

An obvious, easy pairing? A maxi skirt with a cozy sweater. But don't limit yourself to just that ensemble this winter. You can pair the floor-grazing piece with just about everything, whether that's the double-jacket trend, a sporty hoodie, or a blazer. 

Once the temperatures really drop, slip into a pair of tights to prevent your legs from getting too cold. Depending on the length, you can either let the hosiery show (pick a cute patterned pair!) or slip into knee-high boots that offer even more coverage. Ready to see our picks?
