While it may not seem practical to wear a mini skirt during the chillier months of the year, it certainly is a huge trend this season. Believe it or not, there are ways to swap out your skinny jeans for a fun mini this fall and winter without freezing your tush off. Adding tights, cozy socks, and boots of different heights to mini skirts in rich textures and colors is a great way to mix up your cold weather wardrobe.
In this post, I’ll be showing you how to style a fun burgundy velvet mini skirt for both class and a night out. Read on for tips on how to style a mini skirt in colder weather.
Velvet Skirt: Class
Style this adorable burgundy mini skirt for class by pairing it with a cozy cream-colored cable knit sweater and matching ruched thigh-high socks. Cognac over-the-knee boots complement the cream and burgundy hues perfectly and add a trendy touch. Wearing tall socks with a mini skirt is a fun alternative to the typical tights and will still keep you warm. It’s also very reminiscent of the ’90s and has a Clueless-like vibe.
Luxe accessories, like a gold lion head bangle and a burgundy-hued tote bag, keep the look sleek and classy. Keep your beauty routine simple by giving your cheeks that just pinched look with a bright pink blush.
Velvet Skirt: Night Out
This skirt looks perfectly vampy for a night out when paired with a sheer long-sleeved blouse that has black rosebud print detailing. Since the skirt and top are almost an exact match color-wise, the ensemble looks like a matching set. The shirt has a looser fit, so a black bralette or cami would look chic underneath.
Throw on your fave tights and black faux suede booties, then carry all of your nighttime essentials in a trendy bucket bag. Crystal studs add just the right amount of shine, while black fingernails add to the vampiness of the look. To keep things from getting too dark, complete the ensemble with a fresh-looking pink lip.
