Winter always brings forth such a fashion conundrum. It's hard to break out of the jeans and sweater routine, right? This season I've vowed to dress my outfits up a bit with the addition of skirts. The main requirement? That they look good with black tights and sweaters. Here are five that range from comfy to practical to sassy. ♥ Fine Corduroy Snap Front Skirt, Urban Outfitters ($54, pictured). After flannel, there's not a more comfortable cold weather fabric than corduroy. This vintage-inspired skirt also comes in red and blue.
♥ Essential Twill A-Line Skirt, Forever 21 ($18). As its name suggests, everyone needs a simple not-too-short a-line skirt.
♥ Black Full Skater Skirt, Top Shop ($76). Just as twirly and swirly as a girly skater skirt, except this one's a bit tougher in black faux leather.
♥ It's A New-tral Day Skirt, ModCloth ($78). This light brown herringbone twill is accented with big, red patch pockets and matching waistband.
♥ Floral Printed Mini Skirt, Wet Seal ($19.50). It's winter, but if you're still jonesing for florals, opt for a darker hued pattern. This print with a black background does the trick.
