This winter skirt goes with everything you already have in your wardrobe

January 20, 2024

​Last week I revealed all the items, the good, the bad and the ugly (well, no ugly actually) I bought in 2023. 

(Did you miss it? You can read it here)

In that email I brazenly said ‘I don’t wear skirts in winter’… and I don’t. 

As soon as I typed those words, I immediately asked myself ‘why?!’

If I heard that statement muttered from a client’s lips, I would immediately question, analyse and challenge. 

So I flipped into Stylist mode and started to question my own propensity to wear trousers in winter. 

And this is what I discovered…

  • I like outfit formulas (or uniform dressing, if you will) 

  • They are convenient, jeans go with everything (as long as they have a blue NOT yellow undertone)

  • I wear a lot of over sized knitwear so the ‘gap’ between my legs creates visual balance

  • They are practical: easy to wear, run around in, keep me warm

  • They are anti-trend

➡️ So what I need is the winter skirt answer to jeans 💥

Elementary, my dear Watson. 

  • It needs to go with my sweaters so would need to be narrow 

  • It needs to be comfortable so has stretch

  • It needs to be convenient in that it can be paired with multiple shoe options

  • It needs to be warm. 

  • It needs to still live in my wardrobe next season… and the season after that

And I have found it. 

The irony is that I have always styled my clients in this skirt…


✔️ Stylish

✔️ Warm

✔️ Has dress up and down versatility

✔️ Pairs easily with boots or trainers

AND the best bit is that the skirt is often accompanied with a matching knitted top, like dressing by numbers

I love an elongated silhouette so I’m going to opt for something long that I can wear in the day with trainers and socks or to work with my flat over the knee boots. 

But I have also included midi options for all my beautiful petites out there. 

The Knitted Skirt Edit 

⭐️ STYLING TOP TIP: The fine knit versions look great at work with a silk blouse, blazer and boots. The ribbed, cable and mohair look more casual and are great for the weekend with trainers and chunky boots. 

Stay Warm!
