13 Knitted Skirt Sets to Wear All Spring Long

Throughout the past year, knit dressing has become one of the most adopted trends and it appears the look is here to stay. And perhaps responding to the fact that the world has happily grown accustomed to covering ourselves in stretchy, slinky, body-hugging knits, tons of designers and labels have delivered us knitwear-heavy collections—from JW Anderson to Fendi. The range is wide because the genre can go way beyond a standard jumper and there’s also a knit for every season. Those knitted skirt and sweater sets we loved so much this past winter have taken on a lighter weight and a more colorful identity that’s well suited for spring’s warmer days and more optimistic mood. 

We’re no stranger to the comfortable yet polished appeal of a matching knit top and skirt set. A coordinated ensemble is a surefire way to look effortlessly chic without having to put much thought into it—and if it’s made of a soft ribbed knit, it’s the coziest of its kind. While you might have paired winter’s cashmere versions with knee-high boots, this season’s iterations—from Wales Bonner’s striped combo to Anna Quan’s subtly sexy buttoned skirt set—can be worn with more spring forward footwear, such as a sneaker, mule, or a heeled sandal.

Plus, considering these knit skirt sets are separates, you have the flexibility to mix and match the tops (be it a polo knit, a long sleeve, a sleeveless tank, or tee) with the rest of your wardrobe. Wear the skirt with its coordinated top for a streamlined look, or try it with a simple tank and loose button-up (worn open) to break things up. Or, drape your knit top over your shoulders to achieve one of the season’s coolest styling hacks.

The look in all its forms—including knit top and skirts–—were seen on both the spring 2021 runways as well as the most recent Fall 2021 collections. So it’s safe to say you can’t go wrong with any one of these 13 knit skirt sets. Shop our favorites below at every price.
