If you thought skirts were only meant for the warmer months, you thought wrong. You can make a skirt work in the winter by opting for longer silhouettes and layering tights or leggings underneath.

So whether you’re in California and live for sweater weather or have already been snowed in somewhere on the east coast, add a few of these trendy long skirts in your arsenal.

Modcloth Hey Girl Crushed Velvet Maxi Skirt $69.99

Velvet is going to be hot this winter, which is why this gorgeous velvet maxi skirt is one of our faves. We’re obsessed with the rich blue hue and how easy it is to transition it from daily wear to a festive holiday party.

Madewell Denim Seamed Button-Front Skirt $89.50

Denim is always a good idea, and this Madewell button-down skirt is both casual and on trend. It can be paired with any sweater or a simple tee for an easy and flattering look.

ASOS Scuba Prom Mid-Maxi Skirt in Polka Dot $60

Unleash your inner fashionista with this polka dot skirt. It’s a little bit on the fancier side, but pairing it with more basic pieces can definitely make this piece work appropriate.

Mossimo Supply Co. Button Front Maxi Skirt $19.99

You can’t beat this maxi skirt from Target. It’s only $19.99 and the feminine print is perfect for any outdoor activity including apple picking or taking a stroll through the park. Oh, and it also comes in black in case you want a more neutral floral skirt.

J.Crew Double-Serge Wool Skirt $158

While this isn’t a very long skirt — it’s more of a midi — it’s still warm because it’s made of wool. If you want to update your work look or are more of a preppy lady, this is a great winter skirt to have in your wardrobe.

Winter is full of holiday bashes and nights out where you get to play dress up with the girls. Pick this amazing skirt up and look like a grown-up ballerina (in the best way possible!).

RiffRaff Water Lilies Maxi Skirt $56

The best part about this RiffRaff skirt is that it’s both fall and winter-friendly. It can last two seasons, and its warm color palette makes us feel fuzzy inside. Think mulled wine and winter shopping in this look — it’ll be a showstopper for sure.

Abound Metallic Pleated Skirt $31.97

This fun number is perfect if you want a more fashion-forward look this winter. It has more glitz and glamour than your average skirt, but it can also easily be worn in a professional setting with a simple top.

Free People Ow Ow Skirt $70

A black maxi is a wardrobe staple at this point. You can dress it up with a sparkly top or dress it down with a plain tee — whatever you decide, you’ll get a lot of wear out of this one.

Varun Bahl Flounced Floral Maxi Skirt $178

This floral maxi skirt is what winter dreams are made of. The sheer material is dressier than most fabrics, but the floral embroidered design makes it daytime-appropriate. Who says flowers are only for spring anyway?

H&M Flounce Wrap-Front Skirt $29.99

This trendy skirt will help keep your legs warm while showing off your shoes at the same time. If you want more than one color, you can also get this number in a blush pink.
