The crisp autumn breeze has us running to our closets for the coziest sweaters. This season, pair your favourite knits with a skirt for a playful and feminine look. With infinite combinations of texture, contrast and fit, we’ll show you how this look is sure to brighten even the rainiest day.

Play With Components

When you think of autumn, do you immediately think of layering? So do we. The typical cooler shades and earth-tones seem to mix together magically, and also let you indulge by piling on all your favourite pieces. Together, a skirt and sweater can provide the perfect basis to incorporate your treasured autumn accessories in a fresh way.

Get Your Proportions Right

Balance is key. Basically, choose the features you want to emphasize, and harmonize the look by downplaying other elements. This means a short or skin-tight skirt will look better with a heavier, looser sweater. Conversely, the volume of an A-Line or maxi skirt can be offset by a wearing a fitted cardigan or turtleneck. Equilibrium is essential for colour and texture as well. A monochrome skirt will balance the bold pattern of a sweater, while a simpler knit sweater will look great with an embellished skirt.

Skirt And Sweater Outfits & Ideas

Daytime or evening, feel comfy and look enchanting in a sweater and skirt. Incorporate trends of the season, like open weaves, translucency, florals, metallics and ultra-casual gym sweatshirts.
