Dial down a fitted leather pencil skirt for day by styling it with a cozy oversized knit. Keep an eye out for luxe cashmere styles in a neutral color palette. Our favorite affordable cashmere brands? Vince, J.Crew, Uniqlo, Theory, Old Navy, and Inhabit.
2. Turtleneck + Fit and Flare Skirt

A dreamy mix of ease and impact. A short fit and flare skirt becomes more of a go-to option when paired with a simple black turtleneck and opaque tights. We love that the striking black and white pattern takes center stage against an all-black backdrop.
3. Graphic Sweater + Metallic Party Skirt

Don’t be afraid to be excessive. A bold graphic with a textural party skirt makes an unexpected statement. We’re feeling major Sex and The City vibes and we’re loving it. It hits the sweet spot between luxe and cool.
4. Crop Sweater + Pleated Midi Skirt

The season’s best proportion play. Pleated skirts can be tricky to tuck shirts into so a crop sweater is the perfect partner. Pair with sneaks and a leather jacket for everyday, dress it up with block heels and a statement necklace for night.
5. Cardigan Sweater + Full Skirt

A traditionally demure outfit gets a playful, modern update in tonal marigold (our fave color right now BTW). If there’s one thing we learned this summer, it’s that the power of color is unstoppable. You’ll feel instantly bolder and brighter. Wild leopard print heels provide the perfect amount of edge.
6. Casual Crew + Mini Skirt

Rock the mini! If you’re nervous, this is the way to do it. Go conservative on top with a cool casual crew. It offsets the daringness of the ultra mini. This look is spot on for our current mood. Easy, chic, effortless. All things we want to feel transitioning into fall.
7. Pullover Sweater + Denim Skirt

This is what boho dreams are made of. Trade your summer tee for a pullover sweater. We love this one with its exaggerated bell sleeves and ruffle detail. Dress it up with clog sandals and a fringe cross-body for date night and switch to sneaks for weekend errands.
Some things are just meant to go together. PB+J, Bey and Jay, summer and rosé, and yes, skirts and sweaters. Tell us a few of your fave combos, fashion or otherwise in the comments below!
