6 Incredibly Easy Ways to Style Miniskirts This Winter

Winter and its inevitably freezing temperatures are right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice wearing some of our favorite pieces just because it’s cold outside. Case in point? The miniskirt. We tend to reach for midi- and maxi-length skirts when things get chilly (the shorter the length, the more leg being bared, right?), but minis are still perfectly suitable for winter weather. It’s all about how you style them. We love to layer ours over tights or pair them with knee-high boots, but they also look great worn with our favorite outerwear staples, like a cozy, oversize coat or leather trench.

In need of a little more inspiration? We scoured the ’gram for all the ways our favorite fashion girls are styling their winter miniskirts this season. Ahead, check out six of our favorite looks and, of course, shop them for yourselves.

Cream Blazer + Black Sweater + Black Skirt + Black Knee-High Boots

Neutral winter mini skirt outfit



This neutral black-and-cream look is sleek and polished, yet it’s still quite comfortable. The fuzzy wool blazer adds a bit of coziness, while the knee-high boots help keep your legs toasty sans tights.

Everyone needs a black turtleneck sweater for winter, in our opinion.

This classic wrap skirt goes with just about anything.

Knit Cardigan and Cami Set + Plaid Skirt + Cowboy Boots

Plaid mini skirt winter outfit



When it’s cold (but not too cold), try pairing a pleated mini with layered knits like the above. Bonus points if you opt for a matching set.

We love the subtle bishop sleeves and cropped silhouette on this cardigan.

Plaid miniskirts are the It item of the season.

These toned-down cowboy boots from Raye would look just as good with skinny jeans as they would with a miniskirt.

Black Oversize Coat + Color-Blocked Skirt + White Slingbacks + White Bag

Colorblocked mini skirt outfit



There’s no need for tights when you pair your miniskirt with an oversize black wool coat. We especially love the color-blocking on this skirt.

We’ll be adding this budget-friendly pick to our collection, stat. 

These Prada slingback are equal parts sleek and sporty.

Don’t forget the matching bag, of course.

Black Leather Trench Coat + Printed Tee + Black Skirt + Black Boots

Trench coat and mini skirt outfit



Breaking up an all-black look with a fun print is always a good move. We love how this simple baby tee looks layered under a black trench and black skirt.

If there’s one new coat you buy this season, let it be this one.

Miaou has always killed it in terms of prints, and we’re pretty obsessed with this tomato one.

These flat knee-high boots are a winter must.

Slouchy Leather Jacket + Corset Top + Pleated Skirt + Brown Knee-High Boots

Corset mini skirt outfit



Not a fan of an all-black ensemble? Opt for layering different earthy tones like brown and olive green. We love the juxtaposition of this micro miniskirt and corset top layered under a slouchy “borrowed from the boys” jacket.

Warm and practical yet still super cute.

A classic tennis skirt is always great to have on hand. Dress it up or dress it down.

There are too many good knee-high boots to choose from this season. Take these beauties from Coach for example.

Olive Skirt Suit + Leather Bralette + Black Clogs + Black Clutch

Winter skirt suit outfit



One great way to wear a miniskirt during the winter is by wearing a full-on skirt suit. We love the slightly oversize look of the one above, but fitted styles are just as nice. Pair them with tights when you need extra warmth, especially if you’re opting for clogs instead of a tall pair of boots.

This tailored blazer is *chef’s kiss*

This leather bralette has so many layering possibilities.

As are clutches. We’re especially fans of this one from Mansur Gavriel.
