Can I wear my new maxi skirt in the middle of winter without looking like an idiot??

I've just managed to find the perfect maxi skirt for me in the "Warehouse" sale - it's black jersey fabric and for a change long enough for me to wear on my waist and still just skim the floor. I'm quite tall so usually never find anything "maxi" to fit me. This is my first maxi item and I love it so much, I just want to wear it! Also, I'm currently trying really hard to de-frump and get away from my usual boring jeans...
So: Can I? Without looking like a complete t**t I mean? Obviously will not be wearing it in 100mph gales, even I know this!
Opinions, please!

I wore my new maxi skirt on Tuesday, it is black with grey and white roses on it. I wore it with a grey long sleeved top with a black long sleeved top layered on top, tights and black flat ankle boots. When I was out, I wore it with my black leather jacket

Watching for tips. Love non-summer maxi looks. Have you had a hunt on pinterest?

Any use? Pinterest

Biker boots. Chunky knit. The job is done

Oooh lovely! just been on pintrest, thanks for the suggestion! oh my god, I' ll never wear trousers again!

Oh yes, I wear them a lot.

Wore a lurex zigzag one today with a polo neck jumper, short furry jacket and long johns underneath wink

I'll wear a leather jacket when it's warmer.

I really like long boots under maxis. Or cowboy boots. Or clogs.

Why would you look like an idiot?

I love them with slouchy heeled ankle boots and a biker jacket. Haven't worn one lately though, as none of my warm coats work with them.

remus pintrest was a total inspiration, I'm gonna go for it tomorrow, will wear it with either my slouchy low heel ankle boots or knee high flat boots. None of my warm coats go with it either, figured I'm just going to layer up smile

You've just reminded me that dd has a fur gilet thing. I might try that over my biker jacket. smile

Maxi for daywear makes everybody look like an idiot grin

I'll live with it, holly grin

That's helpful, Holly, but I'll cope...
