Knitwear - The Skirt Just Works - Autumn 2022

The Skirt Just Works

Skirts and knitwear? Can it look right? If you choose the right top, it works a treat. The general tip is to go for a lighter jumper, perhaps a cotton knit or one of the lighter cashmere designs. It can give off slightly 1970s Velma vibes, but that’s all the better for being a little kooky and laid back (preferably whilst solving mysteries, but this is strictly optional).

A good A-line can herald the transition from summer to autumn, worn around the knee or shorter. There’s a structure there that sets off the jumper nicely and can look pretty smart with boots or trainers. As the pages of the calendar are ripped off, though, you might want to move on to a longer, flowing skirt in more rigid fabric. 

Again, it’ll work just right with the silhouette of a well-fitted jumper, and can actually be used as a casual evening look for the restaurant, the bar or the gathering at a friend’s place. Accessorise at will, with your favourite bag and jewels and you can dial the glam and the functionality up and down to suit the occasion.
