How To Wear A Knitted Skirt, Two Ways

Your new season essential

Influencers Sara Donaldson of Harper and Harley and Andy Csinger demonstrate two very different ways to style Uniqlo’s Felted Long Skirt, below.

1/ Office hours

Dressing for work during the cooler months takes a tad more effort than summer’s throw-on-and-go dresses. Enter the knitted skirt, which is chic, cosy and an on-trend alternative to classic pencil silhouettes. For a polished look that will take you from boardroom to bar, follow Sara Donaldson’s lead by teaming with a crisp white shirt, ankle boots and finishing with a chain-strap bag. “Make the most of the skirt’s flattering high waistline by tucking your top in,” says marie claire fashion assistant Monica Russell. “It’s a quick, easy way to fake an hourglass silhouette.”

2/ Off-duty cool 

For a more casual setting, sub in a checked button-up and knot it up at the waist à la Andy Csinger. “With a fluid, lightweight trench and strappy pumps, this outfit is a fun option for dinner out with the girls,” says Russell. “You could also wear the skirt, shirt and coat with white sneakers when you’re running errands on the weekend.”
