Embrace satin skirts with slouchy knitwear for an easy, but impactful look

If you’re seeking a failsafe winter outfit, look no further than this comfortable and cosy combination. In a nod to high-low styling, it’s all about opulent skirts worn with sloppy knits in a way that is simultaneously cool and polished.

Office-appropriate and your best defence against an air-conditioned space, it’s a formula that’s elegant enough to see you through to post-work drinks too. The look is a celebratory clash of textures: try soft cashmere against bias-cut midi skirts and cable-knits with chiffon. Floaty dresses also work well – in fact, this is a perfect way to winterize your summer midi dresses.

Where footwear is concerned, this easy look lends itself to all manner of winter boots, from chic knee-highs to chunky utility styles. Wear the latter with florals for a grungy twist, or try a Victoriana lace-up to tap into the prairie trend. Satin skirts + sloppy knitwear = your winter uniform sorted.
