Leggings are your best friends in winter. You can easily incorporate them into your ensembles, so you won’t have to say goodbye to your favorite skirts or shorts.

Here are some ideas on how to wear leggings in winter:

1. Transition your favorite pair of summer or fall skorts to winter by wearing them with a thick pair of leggings. Keep the look polished and classic by wearing a white button-down top tucked in the skort. Cap it off with a pair of lace-up booties or a pair of platform leather shoes.
