Fringe. Fringe. Fringe. Fringe has been a trend in the spring, so why not bring it to the cold season? Recently, I came across this fringe skirt and fell in love. Overall, skirts are a great way to dress up a look. But a fringe skirt adds an extra layer of visual interest and texture which in turn looks very fashion forward. Lately, its been COLD — temperatures below 20 degrees. Wearing a skirt in the winter seems to defy common sense. As a result, learning how to wear one and look chic instead of freezing cold gives an edgy twist to your style.
My LA cousin came for a visit and we dined at the highly recognized MingHin Cuisine Restaurant in Chinatown. Despite the cold, I pulled off wearing the fringe skirt. Here are a few tips to style your fringe skirt for the winter:
- Wear a fitted top. Because the skirt already creates body and bulk with all the fringe, try wearing a long-sleeve fitted top such as a wool or knitted sweater.
- Layer your clothing. Wear an outer layer that falls below the waist to trap body heat such as a wool long cardigan. In my case, I chose a blush pink, knitted sweater coat. And yes, I did wear a heavy winter coat over it all. All the layers kept me warm and cozy.
- Protect your legs. Now is the time to wear those opaque nylon tights or those over the knee boots. For those extremely cold days, try these fleece-lined tights with a pair of boots.
- Draw the eyes upward. Naturally, a fringe skirt draws the eyes down. Draw the eyes upward by adding a pair of statement earrings or a necklace which will balance the look out.
