Last week, we talked about how easy it is to get into an outfit rut… especially in the dead of winter. However, we’ve got another trick to ease the pain of cold-weather style! While your instinct is probably to avoid your summer skirts and dresses at all costs, it’s not necessary.

When paired with lots of layers, a skirt can look 100% appropriate for a chilly winter’s day. We love this all-black-everything approach. The hat and leather jacket add a bit of edge, while the tights (with cashmere socks layered over the top!) will keep you cozy as can be.
