The Ageless, Anti-Trend Skirt Style That Belongs in Every Chic Winter Wardrobe

As the temperatures drop, my interest in cosy clothes piques, and I'm not the only one. The knitted skirt is the tried-and-tested (and influencer-approved) wardrobe staple that returns year after year, and for good reason. It's one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your autumn/winter wardrobe, seamlessly taking you from work to weekend with just a few simple styling tweaks. You can rest assured that your trusty knitted skirt will ensure you look put-together and polished—not to mention warm.

Aniyah Morinia makes this knitted skirt look so effortless.

With so many great options available in soft textures and rich colour palettes, knitted skirts can act as wardrobe chameleons that shape-shift to fit your needs. A cream one can look casual and comfy if paired with trainers and a slouchy jumper, but add this season's trending knee-high boots and a floor-sweeping coat, and you've upgraded to a seriously sleek outfit. 

Another plus: a knitted skirt doesn't have to be expensive to look elevated. This season, high-street favourites like Mango and H&M have nailed the quiet-luxury trend with their understated versions, and when styled with a bouclé jacket or blazer, they're sure to look more costly than their price tag.
