YES to Mini Skirts in the Winter!

Mini skirts are more than still in, they are a fashion must-have. Don't think just because it's winter that it's time for you to retire the look.

Different Fabrics. The denim mini is always appropriate for a casual look, but there are so many other fun options. For a more sophisticated look, try a tweed mini skirt or a dark pattern mini skirt. For a more playful or funky look, try a bright mini. Leather mini skirts are also a very sexy winter look.

Leg wear. In the winter, you want to keep your legs covered. In the day time, pair your mini with opaque tights or leggings. If you are wearing a solid color skirt, you can go for a patterned look. If your mini has a pattern, stick with less busy leg wear.

Boots. The hands-down winner for a miniskirt is a pair of boots. Lengths range from ankle to mid calf to knee high. Tall boots (a few inches under the knee) are the easiest to carry off with short skirts because they keep your legs warm. Careful with the ankle length boots if you have short legs, the tend to make them look shorter by cutting the leg at the ankle.

Pumps. You can wear your mini with pumps too. If you are going out at night, don't be affraid to pair them with a sheer pattered tight. A mini skirt also looks great when you wear black pumps and black tights- it gives the illusion that your legs are longer than they actually are.

Bare legs. If you really want to.. yes you can wear bare legs, just wear some nylons because you don't want those goose bumps showing because you are freezing your butt off!
