This Winter Trend Always Makes Me Feel Like a Rich Girl

Those of us who embrace fall with an open heart and the hope of a fully restocked wardrobe will not consider a shift into knitwear to be premature this week. The weather has been relatively mild—so what? I'm ready for wool, and I'm particularly ready for a rising knitwear trend that feels fresh, grown-up, and quite easy to look really good in.

Knitted co-ords are my new favorite thing. Prestyled enough to feel considered and more directional than a mere winter dress, but essentially matchy and therefore easy to throw on, this is coziness combined with being pulled-together. These skirt-and-sweater combinations always look sophisticated (just make sure they aren't too clingy), yet they couldn't be simpler to grab out of your wardrobe each morning.

Right now it's best to wear them with bare legs sans coat, and with the addition of weather-appropriate footwear, depending on the day. However, come the colder months, you'll be glad you invested in such warm, flattering things. They'll look equally great under a gigantic piece of outerwear as they will with tights and boots. Trust me: I've been wearing these powerful knitted twosomes for years now.

Keep scrolling to see how other girls are wearing their chosen knitted co-ords, and shop some of the best around.

Your pieces don't have to match in their knit (zoom in on Beatrice to see the difference between her skirt and sweater), but it is nice to match in color for the ultimate super-rich look.

Cream and brown hues are particularly prevalent in this knitwear realm.

Chloé found her knitted co-ords at COS, so don't be fooled into thinking this is a trend you can't buy on a budget.

Ellie's soft-pink roll-neck and tube skirt are effortless. What's more, they're from H&M.
