It’s all too easy to want to wear jeans all year round but every once in a while, dressing nicer not exactly dressing up, can add a feeling of refinement to a semi special occasion like a dinner and a movie. Also having a fall-back wool skirt outfit can come in handy when you’re suddenly invited to a dinner party or museum trip. Below we’ve highlighted some ideas to help with deciding on what style to pick including the basics for a winter wool skirt outfit.

Classic Winter Beauty

Wearing a maxi wool skirt can be as easy as just purchasing one either new or used and mixing up what you already have in the closet. If you treat a maxi skirt like just another pair or jeans, you can’t go wrong. Of course you need to keep in mind that you’re wearing a skirt and certain activities should be reconsidered like ridding a bike for example.

When you wear no patterns or graphic designs its much easier to make any solid color outfit work. Here a solid blue skirt accents wonderfully against brown boots and a brown-gray top. The sweater ties the entire outfit together as it carries near similar colors in its boxy cardigan knitting pattern.

Punk Meets Foxy

Here the pattern is reversed and the skirt carries all the outfit. When wearing one overall color, as brown here, one should not try to find the exact same color to wear all over even if you can. Doing so will make you look like a walking davenport.

Sticking to the rule of 3s, you simply have to match 3 same gray-browns and shown here. The scarf ties the boots into the outfit the same way a tie and shoe or a belt and shoes would for a man’s outfit.

Highlander as Country Fashion

The plaid wool skirt is as timeless as apple pie. the pattern may seem busy bud don’t let the pattern scare you away. Simply pair with solid color top, jacket and shoes, and you can’t go wrong. The plaid pattern easily flatters all body shapes and you will fall in love with your plaid skirt the very first time you wear it.

You can cross match or dual match as shown here with gray on top and brown on bottom. Once again as long as you stink within the same general color palette you wont set off any fashion alarms.

City Chic meets Classic Country

This look is a no fail combination. The solid black top whether turtle neck or not, paired with a solid wool skirt and boots is about as classic as one gets. We would have worn a real leather belt as the one shown here looks to be a faux belt but the belt definitely adds refinement.

With a quick inventory of your closet this outfit should be nearly complete and all you should need to finish it up is the skirt. Velvet boots look better due to the matte color but leather should do well too.
