I don’t know about you, but this winter, I am ready to welcome any opportunity to break out of pants and slip into something different. The long skirt will be at its peak this winter, and the best part is that there are simple ways to make this style work for you.
The easy to absorb styling principles are: Tuck or fruck (front tuck) your top into the skirt or knot it over the skirt to define your waist, look for skirts that start your natural waistline, skirts that hit the knee allow for both flats or heels to work and finally, sneakers dress skirts down, and boots or a mule style heel will elevate a simple look.
This skirt style works because it has taken on a sophisticated vibe this season, exploring lady-like silhouettes like the pencil skirt. It is one of the chicest items to mix and match and one that you can wear year-round.
Here, we round up 2 of the best winter skirts that are available to buy now.
THE LEATHER SKIRT
Whenever you want to make an outfit look more expensive or elevated, incorporating leather is the easy path to follow. Usually, something associated with cosy layers and luxe winter styling, leather has recently taken on a whole new character, and this takes sub-tropical layering to the next level for us in Queensland.
The latest iterations of the leather or faux leather skirt all come in a flattering a-line silhouette fitted at the waist and flares out, ending at the knee. We generally think the easiest way to wear the trend is to keep it polished with heeled boots and tonal layers. If you want to bring a laid-back finish to the direction, add sneakers and a bomber jacket.

THE SILKY SKIRT
The sister of the silky slip dress is key for the season ahead. The silky skirt has been a trend for a couple of seasons now, and it’s no surprise that it hasn’t left the stores yet again this winter. It’s statement-making and versatile all at once – name a better combination?
What makes it such a no-brainer is that there are so many simply styling tricks like tucking that the silhouette looks great with! The best part is that they look just as great with sneakers as they do with mules. Whether teamed with boots and knits in the winter or paired with a matching slinky camisole and sandals during summer, the slip skirt is always a stylish choice.
