Sick of pants, Melissa Cowan brings you 5 skirts she wants to wear this winter. 

I went through a three-year phase of not wearing pants while I was at uni. It was dresses and skirts all the way. I do love a skirt in winter, paired up with some tights and boots and a warm top or coat. These five give you lots of options as you navigate the streets in chilly weather.

I do heart leather. This look could go from the office to dinner in a heartbeat.
