How To Wear A Maxi Skirt In Winter

December 12, 2017

Floral Maxi Skirt Street Style

For cold weather days, it makes sense to wear pants in order to keep our lower extremities toasty. That being said, sometimes I feel like you can be as warm if you wear a long skirt with some sort of leggings under it. I love pants, but regardless of the weather, skirts and dresses are the best candidates for me when I want to feel extra feminine.
Last week my husband and I went to Raleigh, NC to run a few errands and also to enjoy a night in the city. The weather was a tad chilly so I figured a fun layering would come in handy. Yes, I chose to layer with a floral maxi skirt over warm leggings that, due to the length of the skirt, no one could see. I wanted to play a bit with proportions, so I wore my French workwear jacket which has a boxy shape that looked great with my flared skirt and over my fitted turtleneck. Topping off this look with a midi coat that was longer than my jacket but shorter than my skirt seemed to be a clever layering technique. As you can see, my outfit looked fun from whichever angle you view it.

I have to mention that this is not the only boxy jacket that I own, but the color of this one played very well with the blue flowers on the skirt. I totally loved this vibrant pairing, however, I did not want to add bright colors to it. I believe that choosing neutral-hued supporting pieces was the move that made these two colorful garments to stand out even more. The neutral colors actually worked as a great frame and background.
I completely enjoyed wearing this look while touring the city. While on our way to a local coffee shop, we found this adorable house that reminded us of our honeymoon in Puerto Rico. The colors and decor of the house were perfect as background for a photo-shoot. We took advantage of the cute area in that neighboorhood and did this spontaneous photo-shoot of my outfit, so I hope you like it.
