I have one word to sum up my weekend: Snow. That's right, Mother Nature decided that we were having a bit too easy of a Winter in Toronto and she remedied that by dumping a mountain of snow on us. Most of my plans for the weekend were canceled, but I still managed to get out and about to run some errands and I did so in a maxi skirt. I know that maxi skirts and dresses are normally associated with Spring and Summer looks, but I enjoy a good maxi skirt in the Winter as well. This weekend in particular, I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of a monochromatic black maxi skirt and sweater against a Winter wonderland background. Read on to see how I styled a long skirt for the Winter time.
|Skirt - Asos, Sweater - Club Monaco, Booties - Target|
Lip - Mac's Beet Lipliner and Rebel Lipstick
The biggest tip that I have for styling maxi skirts and dresses in the winter time is to keep colours in the darker palette, and to layer underneath. I'm definitely wearing my trusty fleece-lined tights underneath the skirt so that I don't freeze.
What do you think about wearing maxi skirts and dresses in the Winter? Let me know!
Jeeze lady! You are so gorgeous. I love how you can pull off that lip.ReplyDelete
And the skirt looks fab.
Thanks Gabriella, you definitely made my day!Delete
Love these photos!! You look so gorgeous! I definitely agree with keeping skirts/dresses in a darker palette in winter time. Unfortunately, I tend to avoid them in general most of the winter because I walk for a large portion of my commute :(ReplyDelete

Thanks Erin! I'm loving a dark lip for the winter too!Delete
At least the snow this weekend was pretty fluffy snow and not that awful wet snow we had earlier in the week - it made for great photo taking, and the cold wasn't so bad while it was actually snowing! That lip colour looks stunning on you!ReplyDelete
Thanks Nadia, and I agree - I can handle the cold so much better when it's perfect snowfall outside!Delete
I wear my black maxi all the time in winter, usually with flats though. I'll have to give it a try with boots. Stay warm!ReplyDelete

I have a dark wool skirt (it's not maxi but it's long) that I've been trying to style. Now, I'm inspired by this post!ReplyDelete
