1. Wear a knee length or shorter skirt with a long coat
Long coats have been the smartest option to wear in winters. They look equally awesome when combined with skirts of short length as much as they do with any other bottom. Skirt with a coat gives you a chick+ smart look at the same time.
2. High waist pencil skirt with tucked in sweater
This style works both for a formal look as well as a casual one. Prints make a huge difference; here polka dot trend is looking very graceful. The only prerequisite for this look is a flat stomach. If you have a flat stomach you should definitely flaunt in this look this winter.

3. Maxi skirt with a leather jacket
Maxi skirts have been a huge fashion trend this year. If you thought leather jackets only look good on teenagers or with rugged attire, it’s time for you to think twice. I think maxi skirt and leather jacket makes a very classy combo and girls of all ages can rock this combo, it is the attitude that matters.

4. Wear a short skirt with oversized sweater/woollen blouse
This is when you want to wear a skirt and don’t want to look all made up. For a casual dinner or friends out you may opt for this look. I sport this look many a times personally. According to your comfort, you may throw some scarves or other accessories as well.
5. Wear a hounds tooth patterned woollen skirt with plain black jacket or vice versa
Houndstooth pattern is again a very much abused fashion trend nowadays. This pattern looks even better in woollen fabric. Owning a skirt in this pattern is on my wish list too. You can wear such combo or opposite of this that is plain black skirt with a houndstooth patterned jacket. Either way, you will end up making a statement.

6. Wear a skirt with monotone stockings and contrast woollen top
For those of you who do not like to experiment much with patterns and colors, this is the best option for you. Also, for formal places- this may be the perfect choice.
7. Play with accessories like belts, scarves and mufflers
Winter is the best time to play with accessories. Even if you have the basic pair of skirt and top, you can always wear appropriate accessories and make it look edgy. Throw in belt on top of your open cardigan or wear a woollen scarf or mufflers; just as you like.
8. Pair your skirt with stockings and blazer in basic colors and add fun with chunky jewellery
Don’t worry if you have monotone skirt, vest and blazer. This is the time you can make your jewellery stand out. In fact, this is the option you should opt for when you have new statement necklace to flaunt.

9. Wear a neon skirt keeping rest of the clothes in basic colors
Neons not only rule in summers but can be worn in winter too. Just keep the top and other things pretty much muted.
10. Pair your skirt with a shirt and sweater combo
Does it happen with you as well, that you have this strong urge to wear your shirts in winters too? I have it sometimes. So, this pairing idea is to satisfy ourselves for those times when we want to wear a summer shirt but then its winter time. This looks good, goes for the formal occasions too and satisfies your mood at the same time.
11. Animal print blazer and forest print skirt for an edgy and different look
You can work an animal print blazer with your skirt and if you are bold enough you can even carry forest print skirt with it and look unique. It is a tricky combo and be careful to not to go overboard with prints.
12. Winters without fur? Is that even possible?
Style your skirt with a furry jacket or muffler or even a furry hoody.
13. Spot a leather skirt this winter
Markets are flooded with leather stuff in winters. Wear a leather skirt this time with a zipper jacket. Choosing the length of the skirt depends on your personal preference, I would want to go for a little less than knee length while opting a leather skirt.
14. Wear skirts with colored tights/stockings
This pairing is for the peppy girl in you. When you are bored of wearing plain stockings all the time, you may opt for colored ones. Just keep in mind to keep maximum three colors in your complete attire or otherwise you will end up killing the look itself.
15. Wear it with a denim jacket
Denim jackets always look good. Go for a basic white, black or floral print in your skirt when pairing with denim jacket to bring out the cool girl in you.
16. Wear a maxi skirt with wrap around woollen top
This one is one of my favourites. I am really attracted to these wrap around woollen tops that have come this season. Pairing them with maxi skirt can make you look very graceful.
These were my cents for styling skirts in winters. Please do let me know which ones did you like the most.
