A midi skirt might not be the first thing you reach for when it comes to building a winter outfit, but Instagram’s best dressed have been making a pretty good case for the calf-skimming hemline over the last few weeks. While each person offers their own spin on the wardrobe staple, the uniting theme seems to be stylish jumpers, be it a chunky roll-neck, ribbed fabric or a pop of paintbox brights. The midi-skirt-and-jumper look has become a particular favourite of fashion minimalists such as Alexis Foreman and Brittany Bathgate, who tend to stick to versatile colourways of navy, cream and black. Oh so chic.

Another uniting theme is contrasting textures, and the simplest of pairings can become instantly elevated when you experiment with fabrics. I’m thinking about Alexis’s leather-skirt-and-wool-jumper get-up and Monikh Dale’s tulle-skirt-and-chunky-crew-neck pairing, both of which pack their own personality but feel undeniably pulled-together. So if you’re not sure how to wear your favourite midi skirt as the mercury drops, feel free to use the below outfits to spark your imagination.

For a low-key party look, make like Monikh and throw on a chunky crew-neck knit over a frothy tulle midi skirt.
