Whether you’re a hoarder of the everyday sweater or a fan of the flashback roll neck, there’s something rather wonderful about a knitted piece.
This season celebrates woven attire and the best part – it’s offering is endless.
THE CHARACTER KNIT
It may be a sure-fire staple, but knits are far from limiting in terms of form. 3D patternage, elaborate woven decoration, braiding and bobbles make the woollen design modern with a haute edge. Team character knits with minimal designs for high impact looks inspired by the runway.
THE OVERSIZED KNIT
Shapeless yet enduringly elegant, the oversized knit is dominating the streets this season. Strike the perfect balance between relaxed daywear and statement layering with an enlarged piece, rolling up at the sleeves or gathering at the hips for a more controlled look. Add drama with defined shoulders or keep it casual with a knitted dress; either way, the key is effortless nonchalance.
THE EVERY DAY KNIT
The every day knit is embodied in your ‘old reliable’. That go-to cardigan, the pullover you always reach for, the scarf you miss come spring time. The everyday knit has a fail-safe structure and an enduring charm that keeps you wearing it and the key to its success – it’s staple status.
THE ALL-OVER KNIT
Head-to-toe knits are here and the more, the better. Co-ordinating with colour for a matched top and bottom lay the foundations of the trend, with shoes as the key to communicating the intention of the outfit. Camel ribbed flares are instantly smartened with vintage-inspired brogues as sheaths and multi-way cable knits are finished with crisp white trainers to add clean lines to a silhouette.
THE ROLL NECK
Pulling off the polo neck can seem like a task, but its structure allows the versatility of a fitted silhouette whilst also providing an aura of comfortable, laid-back dressing. A piece that clings in all the right places, this season’s roll neck adds a fresh new wave to a retro mood.
THE TAILORED KNIT
From masculine cricket jumpers to structured woven coats, knits can be tailored too. Anyone with a penchant for clean lines, simple shapes and block colours will be taken in by the tailored pieces- the perfect choice for a day-to-night transition this season.
