By: Sydney Poulton

Hey, guys! It’s the end of January and finally starting to get a little bit colder in these parts. Most of the time, maxi skirts are considered to be a strictly summer essential, right? Perfect with a tank and a pair of gladiators, they’re often shoved to the back of our closets in the colder months. But not this winter, ladies. Here are three ideas for getting your maxi back into your wardrobe rotation right now.

1) Keep it cozy with a belted shawl or poncho. Cinch at the waist to keep from looking like you’re wearing a Snuggie with a cool pattern on it.
