Both Monikh and Rachael Just Wore This £42 Instant Outfit From Zara

Knitted co-ords became my new favourite thing last autumn. Pre-styled enough to feel considered and more directional than a mere winter dress, but essentially matchy and therefore easy to throw on, this is cosiness combined with being pulled together. These skirt-and-jumper combos always look sophisticated (just make sure they aren't too clingy), yet they couldn't be simpler to throw on each morning.

So it's perhaps no surprise, then, at the earliest sign of spring, one particular high-street set has already been trending. A metallic-looking, marl-knit grey tank and midi from Zara has been worn out and about by both Monikh Dale and Rachael of Bubbly Aquarius. We should have seen it coming, after all, Monikh did give us the heads-up that this was on her shopping list for 2019.

Depending on how brave you are, it has to be said that knitted co-ords look best with bare legs. With the addition of weather-appropriate footwear, and making a call on whether you want a coat or layering, these twosomes can be used in many a cool or warm combination. Keep scrolling to see how this one Zara co-ord is being worn, shop it and see some of our other knitted co-ord favourites for S/S 19…

Monikh's combined her new co-ords with old trusty accessories—Chanel "ugly" sandals, a shell anklet and basket bag.

Up close, you can see the metallic flecks on this knit, which along with the buttons make it seem far more expensive.

In full summer mode already, Rachael has worn hers with slides and a little polka-dot bag.

For the Chanel show in Paris, Emili opted for a matchy-matchy cardigan and mini from the Parisian fashion house.

Your pieces don't have to match in their knit (zoom in on Beatrice to see the difference between her skirt and jumper), but it is nice to match in colour for the ultimate super-rich look.

Eni found this co-ord from Zara a while back. It's definitely a trend the brand is heavily invested in.

Ellie's soft pink roll-neck and tube skirt are effortless. What's more, they're from H&M.

Not all co-ords are in neutral shades. Nicole's teal number is from Monki.
