Along with slim, rectangular specs and pointed-toe court shoes, wool skirts are right on track for a major comeback this winter. Whilst it certainly wins practicality points—wool is, of course, a winter-weather non-negotiable—that’s not the only reason we’ve fallen for this heavy-weight fabric in skirt form this time around. Adding structure and texture, sleek wool skirts offer a malleable outfit canvas infused with a polished edge that can be heightened or toned down depending on your styling choices.
Spotted all over the A/W 23 runways paired with button-down shirts, tweed jackets, skin-grazing knits and boxy blazers, the season’s new favourite skirt was a unanimous hit across the designers. And out on the streets, influencers are already playing to the tailored elements of these neat skirts, styling them with classic turtlenecks and sharp kitten heels on repeat.
