Among the countless fashion pairings out there, the sweater-and-skirt combo is our favorite for fall. It's the sartorial equivalent of peanut butter and jelly: delightfully sweet and a solid go-to. And the best part? The twosome never feels tired—with the right styling, that is. We took inspiration from real-world examples from our favorite street style stars on how to master the look.
1. Modernize Your Pairing
Give a fluted midi skirt a lift with an embellished top and elegant sandals.
2. Stick to One Color
Take a tonal approach with one color in different shades for a compelling monochromatic effect.
3. Add Accessories
Accent the combo with layered necklaces for a personal touch.
4. Try the Half-Tuck
The half-tuck is traditionally reserved for button-downs and tees, but it works for knits, too.
5. Play with Proportions
Layer a slouchy oversize knit over a girly skirt to neutralize a too-sweet look.
