This Easy Winter Outfit Formula Is All Over Pinterest

Stylish winter outfits can be hard to get right. The struggle is very real when it comes to balancing chic shapes that flatter with enough layers to stay warm. But thankfully, Pinterest has come to our rescue. Every year, the platform’s fashion channels are flooded with myriad winter outfit ideas, but this year a particular twosome has been triumphant. You probably already own this combination of items, but have you really pushed the seam? Experimented with it for all occasions?

We’ll cut to the chase: Pinterest’s top trending winter outfit is, quite simply, a skirt-and-sweater combination. Neutral colours are the most popular while it seems that the chunkier and slouchier the knitwear, the better, thanks to the balance of slink-fit slip skirts and midis. But there are party options out there (think sequins with bright roll-necks) as well as some bolder formulas if neutrals and basics aren't really your style.

So, to help you get the most out of this trending combo, we’ve plucked some of the re-pinned looks our Pinterest following have really been into, plus added a heap more for your perusal. Oh, and of course, there's shopping.

Keep scrolling to see everything you need for a chic winter, according to Pinterest.

This one has been in our minds for a few months now. Emili's combination of cardigan and slip skirt in jewel tones is just all kinds of perfect.

Eunice opts for neutral tones with a dash of Western style via her plaid skirt and cowboy boots.

Trainers can work with a slip skirt and sweatshirt—just ask Jeanette.

Thanks to the versatility of this combo, I'd recommend taking Hannah's idea and colour clashing as much as you want.

We can't all have a cute dog to accessorise with, but you can definitely update your old pleated skirt with a jumper and white boots, like Babba.

If you're happier in longer-line jumpers, that look works too. Janka's slim knit over a pleated skirt looks so grown-up and chic.

Aysen's autumnal tones and mix of textures really ticks all the boxes.

Hajra picked up the tartan sequin Zara skirt we're all obsessed with, and selected the green tones to compliment with the rest of her outfit.

A leopard print skirt and camel jumper (with gold jewellery) is a wear-repeat kind of option, provided here by Elaf.

If you want to take your skirt and jumper mix to the next level, throw in a statement jacket and a great pair of sassy boots, like Sylvie here.

Alex's tartan skirt has Christmas Day Outfit written all over it… but it will also work nicely for the office in the New Year.

Mel's tonal palette of oatmeal, cream and beige is so 2018.

Ellie's knitted co-ords provide the cosiest way to get in on the trend.

You can still get plenty of wear out of your favourite summer pieces by just adding knitwear, like Lauren.

We had to put another shot of Emili in as she's led this look all year—here's another genius mix of cowgirl style with a '90s slip skirt.
