But let´s face the truth, many times we stare at the closet unsure how to look stunning in a skirt while staying warm in a sweater. The reason is simple, not all sweaters work well with all your skirts. Today, I want to encourage you to play up your sweater and skirt combination whether it´s for work or date.
Crew Neck Sweater and Pleated Faux Leather Skirt
Opt for a cozy crewneck sweater styled with interesting print such as Fairisle to team up with an accordion-pleated skirt. Look for skirts with pleats that flare out starting from the second hips, it´s easier to manage and it doesn´t add weight compared to pleats which start at the waist.
Casually and loosely tuck the ends of your sweater in your skirt for an effortless, even fresh look. Add some elegant ankle boots for work, or some flat riding boots for weekend.
Fashion Sweater and Trumpet Skirt
This is my favorite combination for cold seasons; I often wear it to church. I opt for a fashionable skimming sweater, not too tight and not too loose, which hit just around the first hips. I partner it with this season´s trumpet skirt for a well-defined silhouette.
In fall, I finish the look with DÓrsay pumps. In winter, I go for fitted knee-high boots.
Classic Cashmere Sweater and Ponte Pencil Skirt
When it comes to reliable sweaters, classic cashmere remains unbeatable. I like to go for black or white to wear with a striking printed and colored knee-length pencil skirt. It´s letting the skirt do the talking.
Because I want the prints and colors of the skirt to stand out, I polish it up with all black – sweater and accessories. You can wear under the skirt a black opaque tight in fall or thick black tights in winter. Of course, you can also swap the booties for knee-high boots.
Cardigan Sweater and Flounce Skirt
If my mood calls for some over-the-knee boots, I choose to wear them with an above-the-knee skirt with flounce or fullness. I´m not a fan of contour skirts being worn with thigh-high boots, I find it too constricting. Sure, that combination could look real great if you have the body, but comfort movement is also important for me.
For this look, I went for an animal print flounce skirt to wear with over-the-knee black boots. Although I could keep the entire look serious by going for a dark top, I preferred to add some whimsy with a pastel cardigan sweater.
Wearing your fashionable fall skirts with sweaters shouldn´t be challenging, just remember that you´ll never go wrong with a simple classic sweater and striking skirt. Play with proportion, if your skirt is below the knee, go for a shorter sweater, or tuck it in. And when you do tuck it in, feel free to go locker (pronounced loh-cah, Deutsch for fun and loose.)
