If you loved summer’s slip skirt trend there’s no need to pack them away for next year as the silky wardrobe staple is just as great in winter – you just need to know how to style it. Layered up with chunky knits, oversized coats and heavy boots, they can look just as cool, if not better during the cooler months. Here’s how…

There’s something so cool about a sexy, almost lingerie-esque skirt being paired with a chunky knit, and it’s one of the easiest, throw-on looks you can nail and a welcomed departure from trusted denim.

Despite being on the brink of autumn, there are plenty of slip skirts to choose from, whether you’re looking to invest – Max Mara and Anine Bing get our vote – or want to keep it high street – M&S and Mango are full of affordable options.

The key here is keeping the top half heavy – go oversized with knits, nothing too tight, and layer up with a cocooning masculine coat. Shoe-wise, a chunky Chelsea or biker boot will keep things casual, while knee-high boots will add a polished, 70’s flare. Tie the whole look together by sticking to a muted colour palette and delicate gold jewellery.

Take style notes from Insta star Mercer 7, AKA Erna Leon, who pairs a milky-hued silk slip with chunky Aran knitwear and lace-up biker boots.
