There is a never ending battle between wanting to look incredibly chic in skirts and worrying about freezing your legs off is truly taunting. We recently got a question on Ask a Stylist about how women walk around in short skirts in winter without getting cold. We wanted to put it to the test, to look at the possible things you can do to keep your legs warm, and here's how to wear skirts in winter without freezing
Note: Keep in mind, this might take some getting used to in the beginning, but after a while you can start to get accustomed to having your legs exposed during winter.
1. Apply some lotion to wear skirts and not freeze
One of our team members suggested rubbing lotion on your legs before putting on tights or stockings. This really helped her brave the December cold in her Christmas skirts and stay warm.
2. Thick opaque tights are key to stay warm in the winter
I know some people might not think that thick opaque tights are that different warmth-wise from pantyhose or sheer leggings, but they really do make a hell of a difference. Especially if you buy ones made from thick materials. You'll be able to wear skirts without freezing in the winter.

4. Invest in boots with Inner lining to wear a skirt in the winter
Some boots have an inside lining of fur or thick thermal materials, these are great because they really do spread warmth through your legs, and you'll be able to wear a skirt in the winter without freezing.
5. Upper body warmth is crucial when wearing a skirt in the winter
Sometimes having the upper half taken care of can minimize the coldness you feel in your legs. Wear really thick sweaters, thermal tank tops, scarves and a heat insulating coat or jacket so you can balance out, when wearing a a chic skirt in the winter.

6. Wear wool skirts in the winter to keep you from freezing
Try wearing a skirt made from a fabric that is really heat inducing, like wool. That way it does the job for you, and if it's not too short, you might even find you can get away with not wearing tights.
