Knitwear is a complete and utter staple of your wardrobe. For all months of the year, your knitwear will keep you looking cool and feeling cosy. It can be tempting to just grit your teeth and resign to a fate of shivering whilst you wait for summer to come back around again, but with so many stylish, contemporary styles of knit out there, there’s no reason to keep suffering! Whether you need a piece for your office look, a casual weekend ensemble or for something to wear to your next fancy dinner, knitwear is your answer! Here’s your ultimate to guide to what knitwear you should look for to complete your wardrobe:
A high-quality crew neck cashmere jumper is a total classic and you will never, ever get tired of wearing it either. They look amazingly chic and the shape is naturally flattering! Find yours in a neutral, understated tone that pairs well with all your winter pants and skirts. These look just as good with a suit or with your favourite baggy denim, so it’s really worth investing in good quality cashmere. Just remember to read the washing instructions to avoid any shrinkage disasters!
Cardigans have come back into style recently, and they’re seriously big. A cardigan doesn’t have to look like you nabbed it out of your nan’s wardrobe, they can look really chic if you style them right! Find an oversized, cool cardigan made out of wool or cotton to throw on top of slip dresses, silk camis, tees and tunics to layer up and look great. This is going to keep you warm and on-trend for the colder season! Another classic style is the well-loved and previously coveted coat-igan. This is a super oversized cardigan that’s cut in the same shape as a long length coat, oh hi comfy chic!
A pullover is your key to casual knitwear. You can find these in a crew cut, boxy shapes, tight-fitting silhouettes and A-line styles, choose what makes you feel great! Because these are oh so casual, it’s best to save these for weekend wanders or cosy nights in. You can always throw on your very best long length wool coat to dress it up for daytime! Fleece or jersey is best for your comfortable pullover styles, you don’t want to feel too itchy when you’re enjoying your downtime!
Knitted tees are great for trans-seasonal looks! These fuzzy guys look unique, cool and layer amazingly with wool blazers or denim jackets! Pick a colourful knitted tee for a bold pop to a drab winter outfit, or if you’re feeling more adventurous, why not opt for something a little shinier? Metallic knits look alluring, interesting and exciting – all words you never thought could be welcome in the dark winter wardrobe of yours! A favourite, on-trend colour for this season is dark and lustrous mustard, perfect for a knitted tee!
Your knits don’t all have to be so contemporary! Craft is coming back in a very big way at the moment, and this is the perfect opportunity to get ahead of the curve and integrate it into your closet! Crocheted pieces are creative, homely and look great when done right. Look for an oversized crocket duster to layer over your long-sleeved tees and chinos to add a touch of boho-babe to your weekend look.
You should be itchy (hopefully not literally) to get your hands on this season’s finest women’s knitwear! Get out there and reinvent what winter dressing means to you, you’ll be able to feel amazing, stylish, sexy and cool, whatever the weather!
