    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in nine colors).

    3. A velvet skater skirt for a festive take on a classic shape.,

    Honestly, I'm drooling over the ways both reviewers above styled it. Opaque tights, heeled booties, a cardi, and a scarf? A classic striped tee and fishnets? Both combos make me wanna kiss my fingers like an Italian chef.

    8. A plaid A-line number befitting a vintage vixen such as yourself.,

    Promising review: "The material is such that you can wear it in the winter with a pair of tights or in the spring without. The quality of the linen-ish fabric is nice. I love that it has pockets and that it's high-waisted with a big elastic band." —Nell M

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 25 colors and prints).

    11. A classic denim mini that'd look so rock 'n' roll with some fishnets.


    Promising review: "Perfect denim mini skirt. I love, love, love this skirt. I'm 5'8" and a woman's US size 10, and the large fits perfectly. I like that it isn't overly stretchy, since that makes the denim stable and durable. Be aware that it is very short. It has FOUR functional pockets, which is something my most practical pair of jeans don't even have. Anyway, I highly recommend this! I'll probably order a couple more in different colors soon." —Courtney

    Get it from Amazon for $18.90+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in three washes).

    12. A cutout, scalloped skater skirt for anyone who believes in twirl power.,

    Promising review: "I bought this skirt to wear to my wife's office holiday party. It's the perfect middle ground between fun and dressed up a bit. It's perfect paired with a black long sleeve, tights, and chunky heels. I'm sure I'll end up with a few more colors!" —Michelle R

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 colors and prints).

    13. A spooky metallic mini, which is, coincidentally, printed with the exact same emoji your friends will comment with on all your OOTD pics. It's truly to ~die~ for.


    Get it from ModCloth for $59.99 (available in sizes 00-28).

    14. A sexy zippered mini so you can check slay off your to-do list now, and continue to rock it without tights come spring.

    15. A cozy sweater skirt, because who says sweaters are reserved for the top half of your body?


    Get it from Anthropologie for $98 (available in XXS-3X and XXS-XL petite).

    16. As swingy printed number for anyone who rejects the idea that winter fashion should just be basic black 24/7.

It's quickly become one of my favorite skirts, and looks good with both pantyhose and pumps and tights and boots.It doesn't lose its shape and is easy to travel with (no ironing after unpacking)." —ladyfern31

    Get it from Amazon for $22.36+ (available in sizes 1X-3X and in eight colors and prints).

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in two colors).

    19. An A-line mini that is four of my favorite things: 1) purple, 2) plaid, 3) machine washable, and 4) tights-friendly.



    Get it from Express for $41.93 (originally $59.90, available in sizes 00-18).

    20. A luxe-looking mini, which is faux leather but really cute.


    Promising review: "I've purchased several colors and I love them! Really classy look — amazing for the price! I think they look dynamite in the winter with tights and tall boots. Paired with a little T-shirt or tank, they look nice in the summer too." —Samantha M.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.49 (available in sizes S-XXL and in five colors).

    21. A mixed-print skirt you'll totally be able to wear again in the summer, but that would look fabulously grunge-glam right now paired with tights and combat boots.


    Get it from Eloquii for $79.95 (available in sizes 14-28).

    22. A soft mini skirt that's basically fashion cordu-royalty — it rules all year round for everything from a party to a casual day out with friends.

    Amazon, Heather Braga/BuzzFeed

    My co-worker Heather has and loves this cutie! Here's what she has to say about it: "This skirt was there for me in my time of need! I had a broken foot, so when last-minute plans came up and I was in need of a cute outfit (that didn’t require trying to pull pants on over my cast) I took a chance on this lil’ number. And I’m so glad I did! It’s stretchy, soft, and made my butt look fabulous. Def ordering in another color.”

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in seven colors).

    23. A button-down taffeta mini, which would truly be Audrey Hepburn-level chic with some tights, a fitted top, and block-heel pumps. Pearl necklace optional but encouraged.
