A matching set for cohesive styling 

For those who embody contemporary femininity and appreciate a streamlined look, consider pairing Perri Cutten’s black and blue Calista Metallic Skirt with the matching Calista Metallic Top. Our A-line, double-knitted crepe skirt is designed in Australia, features an elasticated waistband for a customised fit and boasts a fluid, graceful silhouette with softly shaped pleats that shimmer and refract the light.

The Calista Metallic Top complements the matching skirt with the same luxurious metallic fabric while featuring a delicate neckline with soft scalloped edging — making it perfect for transitioning from day to dark with warming outerwear. For a classic 9 to 5 look, pair this must-have Perri Cutten set with black ankle boots and a leather handbag or embrace minimalist silver jewellery, strappy heels and a monochrome blazer for a night at the theatre.

A jumper and knit skirt combination 

Master the art of transeasonal dressing with our Stella Knit Skirt and Carter Cashmere Jumper — the perfect ensemble that epitomises comfort, warmth and refinement. The Stella Knit Skirt is crafted in a subtle silver hue from a luxurious crepe knit fabric, offering a soft, elegant drape. The skirt's A-line silhouette, subtle sheen and delicate texture add a touch of polish — making it a versatile piece you can dress up for an elevated event ensemble or dress down with casual flats for a more pared-back look. 

When styling our Stella skirt, stay warm during chilly winter days by pairing it with our Carter Cashmere Jumper in black. This classic silhouette features a slightly relaxed fit, long sleeves and a finely ribbed hem and cuff, adding subtle texture and depth. The versatile roll neck can be folded or scrunched for multiple styling opportunities with one staple piece. 

Pairing the Stella Knit Skirt and Carter Cashmere Jumper creates a harmonious blend of soft textures and tones, ensuring endless comfort while exuding an air of understated elegance. For a day-to-dark look, style this combination with monochrome leather ankle boots and layer with luxurious outerwear like a warm, full-length coat or a classic Perri Cutten designer blazer

Elevated monochrome ensembles make for the perfect evening-wear looks

Wondering how to style a knit skirt to create a timeless ensemble perfect for upscale evening events and special occasions? Discover the suitability of an entirely monochrome look with our Crepe Pleat Knit Skirt and the Eva Crepe Jacket

Our skirt is cut from a premium crepe knit fabrication and features a fluid A-line silhouette, offering a formal appeal perfect for fancy evening affairs. Thanks to its classic shade and pleated design that adds a modern twist, this skirt delivers the versatility you demand to create a range of stylish ensembles to meet any dress code. 

Accenting our skirt with the minimalist Eva Crepe Jacket allows you to take a contemporary, cohesive and more thoughtful approach to style. Crafted in Australia from the same high-quality crepe fabric, this softly shaped, long-sleeve silhouette features an open front design, shoulder pads for extra structure, a notched collar and a matching knit belt that creates shape and definition. 

To adapt this pairing for a less formal evening event, consider teaming the skirt and jacket with a silk blouse in a pop of colour to add a subtle twist. Embrace suede sling-back or shiny pointed-toe heels and add the finishing touches with your favourite minimalist jewellery.

Neutral knit skirts for monotone dressing  

Perri Cutten’s textured Ingrid Pleat Skirt in Porcelain is a workwear and weekend must-have for those who take a contemporary approach to their everyday ensembles. Designed in Australia and crafted from a classic knit fabrication, its pleated design, neutral hue and fluid silhouette guarantee it remains a versatile separate that can be easily dressed up or down. 

If you’re unsure how to style this knit skirt, consider a streamlined approach by teaming it with a neutral-coloured top, which can be tucked at the waist. Alternatively, you can pair it with our sleeveless Lillian Top in black, trimmed with intricate lace around the neckline while offering a relaxed fit. You can enhance both combinations with heeled sandals and a slim clutch or keep the look more toned down during summer with chunky beige slides or monochrome ballet flats.
