    Weibo Blogger "Stylist Zoe" Gives Advice on How to Wear a Skirt All Year Round#

    A Weibo post called "how to incorporate a skirt in your style all year round" is trending on Weibo. The post belongs to Weibo user “Stylist Zoe,” a self-proclaimed fashion blogger based in Beijing, with a following of more than 2 million. The post details different types of shoes, tops, and overcoats that will work well with skirts in all four seasons with an emphasis on the colder winter months. Traditionally, Chinese women are discouraged from wearing anything that will expose their knees in cold weather because of the belief that it will be damaging to their health. Stylist Zoe gives examples of using over-the-knee boots or thick wool tights and long winter coats to cover the knee area. “Staying warm during the winter does not mean staying ugly,” she says in the post. Netizens on Weibo seem to like the pictures of outfit combinations she posted. But some point out that they avoid wearing skirts due to body image issues more than the need to stay warm. “I don’t wear skirts because my legs are too fat,” said one person.

    Weibo Comment: “Please give me tips on how to lose weight. Then I will wear skirts all year long.”
