The Alaska Skirt is a warm, cozy skirt intended to insulate your legs on cold, winter days. The brioche fabric is very thick, and the stretchy nature of the skirt hugs your legs preventing cold air from stealing your warmth. There is very little shaping to this tube-style skirt as it is intended to be worn over fleece or wool leggings – the form-fitting nature of the skirt is created by the stretchiness of the fabric. This skirt is very versatile; feel free to mix and match colors and stripes any way you like!

The skirt is sized based on 2 measurements:

  1. Waist - the circumference of your waist/high hip where you like your skirt to rest when worn
  2. Max-hip - the circumference around the widest part of your hips/bum

The skirt is graded in 2”/5cm intervals to accommodate waist measurements between 16”/41cm and 60”/152cm and max-hip measurements between 24”/61cm and 67”/170cm.
