In designer collections for the fall-winter 2020/21 season, knitwear has become one of the key trends. On the catwalks, we could see numerous variations of knitted dresses, cardigans, vests, trousers, skirts, tops. As for knitted skirts specifically, a variety of models are relevant this winter: from smooth woolen skirts to ribbed or braided options.
A warm knitted skirt is the main must-have in the cold, which should not be underestimated. Street style stars and designers showed us how stylish it is to wear this simple and inconspicuous wardrobe item in winter. Altuzarra propose to complement a long knitted pencil skirt with a knitted cardigan with a thin strap, and Jil Sander - with an elongated, tight vest to match. Bottega Veneta was spotted wearing a monochrome bow with a semi-fitted skirt, long sweater and rough leather boots - the perfect outfit for every day. But a real ode to knitwear was sung in Dolce & Gabbana's fall-winter collection, which consisted entirely of knitwear. The Italian duo invites us to combine a chunky knit skirt with voluminous knitted tops and cardigans.
Now let's figure out which models of knitted skirts you should definitely pay attention to this season, where and with what to wear them in order to collect a fashionable image.
The most fashionable knitted skirt for winter 2021 is a pencil in noble shades of beige or gray. Give preference to options from dense knitwear with a length just below the knee. Our choice is a sand-colored model with a smooth texture. Wear it to the office with a classic shirt or blouse and an elongated woolen jacket, for a romantic date with a V-neck cardigan and tight-fitting boots, for an informal meeting with friends with an oversized sweater and high coarse lace-up boots.
Another similar model, but with an accent cut. With what to wear such a knitted pencil skirt, designers have already suggested to us - with cardigans and elongated sweaters. We offer to collect an outfit in burgundy shades and choose a knitted top and a cardigan to match the skirt. She also rhymes perfectly with light jumpers and men's cut jackets, oversized shirts and cozy sweatshirts. As for shoes, we recommend wearing rough boots with this skirt (chelsea on a platform, for example), boots with gathers on the bootleg or over-the-knee stockings.
Knitted women's mini-skirts can be easily worn in winter, the main thing is to know how to do it correctly. For example, this model is made of dense ribbed knit, organically combined with a cozy sweater to match or a tandem of a jumper and an elongated blazer. Complement the bow with thick tights (ideally - cashmere or wool), boots and long outerwear. The jacket can always be replaced with a warm oversized cardigan with a large knit or a shirt-cut woolen jacket.
The basis for creating a fashionable bow in the color-block style will be a knitted skirt in a rich yellow color. Try wearing it with a purple or hot pink jumper, tight black tights. You can add another color with a bag and other accessories. The skirt will perfectly fit into monochrome ensembles - it will be an accent spot in them.
Long knitted skirts
The perfect knit skirt for women for winter 2021 is a mid-calf model with a high percentage of cashmere or wool. You will definitely not freeze in such a skirt, especially if you complement it with tight tights and high boots or jackboots. Wear it in tandem with laconic jumpers, masculine jackets, elongated cardigans and tight-fitting turtlenecks.
Another knitted winter skirt that has entered the trend lists of the current season is the model with braids. But you need to be careful with her, since such a bulky knit can visually add a couple of extra pounds in the hips and buttocks. Wear it with a similarly knit sweater or a relaxed matching sweatshirt and lace-up boots. A leather jacket and a pair of chunky jewelry will add spice to the knitted set.
Pleated skirts have not gone out of fashion for several seasons in a row. In the winter of 2021, it is worth replenishing your wardrobe with a model made of deep blue knitwear. Wear it with light-colored sweaters and shirts and low-heeled shoes. For an evening look, combine a skirt with pumps and an airy organza blouse or a ribbed lurex top.
A laconic knitted pleated skirt of dark gray color will ideally fit into winter business outfits. The model looks stylish with tight shirts and cropped jackets, flowing silk blouses and tweed jackets, basic turtlenecks and minimalist cardigans. As for the shoes, this skirt will definitely make friends with tight-fitting leather boots, lace-up boots, pointed ankle boots with a glass heel.
Not only jersey pantsuits are in trend, but also sets with skirts. Check out this versatile black merino wool ensemble. A pencil skirt and wrap cardigan will help create an expressive feminine look that will organically complement a pair of heeled shoes, an exquisite pendant and a small handbag. You can wear a high-necked top or a basic T-shirt under the cardigan.
Another trendy set is a suit with a straight knitted skirt and a sweater with a slit on the shoulder. Complement it with high suede boots, a quilted shoulder bag, and to accentuate the waist, wear a contrasting leather belt.
