The skirt is an article of clothing equipable on the legs. It is commonly found in bedroom wardrobes of many houses and on the corpses of dead NPCs and zombies. It is primarily used to protect the player from getting cold, typically during the winter months. The player may also find themselves getting too hot when wearing a skirt. However, the skirt has a lower player temperature effect than pants, with a value of 5. Thus, making a skirt a greater balance between getting too hot and cold. The skirt is currently equippable by both genders, however it is only displayed on female characters, as a male will appear to be wearing pants instead.

There are currently 5 different variants of the skirt.

Over the course of the zombie apocalypse, clothing will become dirty and bloody, which is dependant on the player's activities. If the player is wearing dirty or bloody clothing over an open wound, the chance of infection will increase. However, using soap and water, the skirt can be cleaned. Each piece of clothing has durability, losing a little upon each hit. The skirt has a maximum condition of 5 and the condition will lower one in 10 times the player gets hit.

A skirt can be torn into ripped sheets, yielding a total of 8. Due to the frequency in which they can be found, the skirt is an obvious source of bandages. In an emergency, a dirty or bloody skirt can be torn into bandages, which will always yield 1 clean ripped sheet and 7 dirty ripped sheets.
