Among the various combinations of clothes, there is a small number of those that are consistently successful. Turtleneck and jeans are perfect. Jacket and trousers? Always a good tandem. And when it comes to more feminine looks, sweater and skirt outfits are the best choice. The beauty of this modest combination is that it doesn’t require buying a few fancy items. You probably already have the necessary knitwear and skirts, so the only task is to experiment with different tops and bottoms, adding accessories.
Joy-pup.com has put together some trendy looks to inspire you to wear skirts in cold weather. We’ll show you the best skirt and sweater combinations to create trendy looks this winter.

Skirt and sweater combinations: TOP 15 catwalk looks
Ermanno Scervino presented an image with a snow-white turtleneck sweater with vertical knitted patterns and a milk skirt with pockets and horizontal patterns. Black leather boots are a bright accent to this look. This outfit is perfect for work (if you don’t have a very strict dress code) or for gatherings in a cozy cafe.
Oversized sweater and long skirt looks
At the Sportmax show, one could see loose-fitting sweaters, as though they’re several sizes larger. The designer showed such a basic gray model, reminiscent of a sweater from a men’s wardrobe, in tandem with a floor-length skirt.
А Michael Kors Collection wrapped the model in a chunky knit sweater and complemented the look with a midi skirt with metallic pleats, matte gray boots and the same bag.
Miu Miu presented an elegant look with a fitted maxi skirt and a cropped argyle cardigan. Red leather gloves, a mini handbag and a trendy belt complemented this sophisticated look.
Another stylish, elegant outfit could be seen at the Jil Sander show. One of the outfits perfectly combined a white bottom in the form of a draped skirt and a trendy sleeveless sweater in a milky shade. Add minimalist gold accessories and a trendy voluminous bag, slip on your favorite black ankle boots and ta da – a trendy look for winter is ready.
If you think it’s impossible to create an evening look with a sweater and a skirt, take a look at how Tom Ford coped with this task. They dressed the model in a beautiful fringed maxi skirt. With such a skirt and jewelry (in our case, large earrings with feathers), even an ordinary black sleeveless sweater looks amazing.
Skirts to match sweaters with voluminous sleeves
Sweaters in the style of the 80s are chic to pair with asymmetrical midi skirts, A-silhouette and daring minis. Take a look at examples of trendy looks from Isabel Marant, Fendi and Versace.
Straight-cut skirt and turtleneck sweater
This combination is just perfect for winter: thanks to the warm collar, you will definitely be warm and you won’t have to pick up a scarf. And the straight cut is good because different options for outerwear are perfect for such a skirt, whether it’s a short down jacket or a long coat. Derive inspiration from Zadig & Voltaire, that suggests combining a red sweater with a leather skirt, Bottega Veneta, which presents an elongated knit sweater in a duet with a sweater and Boss. The latter showed a tandem of chunky knit sweaters in a brick-terracotta shade with a satin skirt made in the color blocking technique.
Cozy sweaters with Scandinavian patterns and embroidered geometric prints in après-ski style can now be worn not only at the ski resort, but also in everyday life. Combine them with long skirts with slits at the hip or drapery. At the same time, the skirt can be chosen in plain color or with a patch or a check print, as shown by Chloe and Prabal Gurung.
Bright sweater and pleated school skirt
Cold weather isn’t a reason to dress only in gray-black outfits. Get yourself a bright yellow, red or green sweater to match with your favorite pants and skirts. How to wear a bright sweater with a skirt? It’s simple – colored models look great with skirts of restrained shades (black, gray). Victoria Beckham showed an example of a stylish look at her show with a yellow V-neck sweater worn over a striped shirt and pleated skirt.
