Wearing Skirts & Tights in Winter {Updated Version}

{heavy materials, layers underneath, tights, flannel heels}

Layer your dress: A heavy-duty red material, layered with a chambray shirt makes sure this ensemble stays cozy. 

{Merino cardigan, heavy dress, merino tights, Hunter boots}

Layer with Merino Wool: Layer over it with a merino wool sweater and merino wool tights. 

{Velvet skirt, layered top, Bootights, Shearling-lined boots}

Discover Bootights: LOVE these tights with a sock attached. They are made in USA, high-quality, durable, and have a sock attached. 

Find fleece, silk, or cotton tights and leggings: {wool tulip skirt, fleece-lined running tights, high boots, chambray shirt}

Choose Appropriate Dress Materials: Heavy vintage silk, velvet, and wool are all great choices. If you are wearing a lighter-weight dress, be sure the colors say "winter."

Add lots of layers and color!

You can even do fancy in the winter without being freezing! These tights are a great find (Target, of course!) and pair perfectly with a heavy silk vintage dress ($10 from the 'needs work' bin at my favorite vintage store...and I'm happy to work on pretty vintage dresses!). Then I wore my bright red wool coat.

{Dress, merino wool sweater, sweater tights, suede pumps}

I hope this gives you some ideas as we face these last dregs of winter! 

Be well and be warm!

Good tips, dear! Hoping I don't need to wear tights for too much longer, but for now, at least I know how to wear them well ;)

I love your style - so cute! I've never been a tights fan, I love them on other people... but I get tired of fussing with them so I tend to scrap the idea of dresses until I can just wear bare legs. So sad, huh??

The chambray shirt khaki skirt combo is my fave. So classy and chic!

The Tights just look awesome. They can be worn in winters and summers both. The wardrobe is definitely incomplete without it.
