How To Wear Mini Skirts In Winter

I have been absolutely obsessed with this exact H&M mini skirt ever since I saw it on Jean from Extra Petite in a few of her recent posts.

Now, I am not a big skirt or dress person to begin with - I live in my denim all year around - but I got really inspired by this clothing piece to try out some outfits that are a bit more girly than I would usually wear. And I also wanted to challenge myself a little bit more to make a mini skirt winter appropriate, which is absolutely necessary with the freeeezing temperatures over here in Germany right now!

One of my favorite ways to style a skirt is with a turtleneck tucked into it. I love the balance that it gives to the look, as your top is covered up all the way, whereas you are showing a little leg on the bottom (though I would ABSOLUTELY wear the thickest thermal leggings or tights I can find with this outfit right now!).
I also imagine this skirt looking absolutely adorable with a nude chunky knit!

I think a mini skirt with tights looks good with a wide variety of boots, however I would always opt for a heeled version, as it elongates your legs and gives the outfit a more sophisticated and put together vibe. With an oversized sweater I would without a doubt choose my OTK boots to go with the look, however, with a tighter turtleneck I would go with simple black ankle booties.

For accessories, I chose a layered gold necklace to break up the plain black fabric of the top and the ChloƩ Faye bag. I do not own this bag - which does not keep me from drooling over it! - but in my opinion, the Faye is the PERFECT winter bag haha! Am I the only one here?

Throw over your most snuggly, oversized teddy coat in a camel color and you are good to go - taking on the frigid temperatures in style!

So what do you think? Do you like the way I imagined to style the H&M skirt? How would you wear it?

Thank you so very much for stopping by!
