This Versatile Skirt Belongs in Every Good Winter Wardrobe

·4-min read

If you're looking for a way to replicate the euphoric joy of pulling on a cosy jumper in the cold weather, you've come to the right place, for today, we're charting the rise of the knitted midi skirt. Though they're certainly not a new thing, knitted skirts have been flying relatively low on the fashion radar. However, with most of us having fatigued ourselves by relentlessly wearing our jeans and joggers and loungewear co-ords, along comes the knitted midi skirt as our winter style saviour.

Knitted midi skirts present one of the sleekest ways to swaddle yourself in woolly layers, and we're not the only ones who think so. Influencers have been rediscovering and wearing their knitted midi skirts over the past couple of weeks, giving our feeds a toasty feel we can't wait to re-create. Lydia of @femmeblk is one such style star whose dreamy colour combination of camel and aubergine looks incredibly expensive.

While you can wear a knitted midi skirt with just about any top or shoes, one of our favourite combinations to pair them with is knee-high boots and a black roll-neck. Because chicness is always the goal.

Handily, there are plenty of knitted midi skirts out there to choose from, from classic to trend-led, checking off every price point as they go. Scroll on to see our pick of the best, and soon you'll find yourself wearing your knitted midi skirt while working from home, doing the school run, getting low-key drinks in the pub—heck, it'll be so comfy you'll probably be tempted to sleep in it, too (no judgement).
