Now that we’re officially in the throes of winter, it’s safe to say that our cold-weather wardrobes are now due a little style refresh – and we think these five knitwear essentials are the best place to start.
1. The Knitted Dress
Whether you’re in the office or heading out to dinner, a knitted dress is the go-to choice for around-the-clock style this winter. Designed with a metallic dashed stripe pattern on classic black, this fit-and-flare design is the perfect blend of style and comfort. Wear yours with ankle boots.
2. The Textured Knit
Basics don’t have to be boring. Update your knitwear essentials with this soft cream jumper in a thick, textured knit, designed with a cowl neckline for an extra touch of cosy. Style with faux leather midi skirt, ankle boots and a cross-body bag, all in black.
3. The Floral Jumper
Knitwear is having a retro revival this season, with vintage-inspired silhouettes combining with nostalgic intarsias. Make some room for the trend in your winter wardrobe with this navy floral knit, and wear it with faded skinny jeans, over-the-knee boots and a frilled cross-body bag for effortless cool.
4. The Cowl-Neck Knit
Want to smarten up your nine-to-five knitwear? Start with this cosy cowl-neck jumper in soft grey marl, and team it with a pair of checked tapered trousers and fresh white trainers. Forgo your usual office tote in favour of a backpack – we think this mini black design ticks all the right boxes.
5. The Embroidered Jumper
Embroidery is showing no signs of slowing down, so fast-track the trend into your winter style rotation with this navy number. Stitched with pretty flowers at the shoulders, this super-soft knit makes a welcome addition to your cold-weather wardrobe – style it with lace-hemmed black trousers, court shoes and a sleek tote bag.
