There’s no denying it – knitwear season is well and truly here. As the festivities begin, fulfil your need for all things warm and cosy with the four new-in knits for your winter wardrobe – think Christmas sparkles, soft chenille textures and classic Fair Isle intarsias.
1. The Chenille Knit
Chenille, the nineties’ sweater trend that plummeted back into our wardrobes last winter, is back for another season. Sumptuously soft to the touch, the throwback fabric is the perfect antidote to cold, blustery days, with classic ivory colourways providing endless style options. Take a break from denim and wear yours with a military-inspired mini, opaque tights and knee-high boots in real leather.
2. The Christmas Jumper
Tradition dictates that a Christmas jumper is a now a wardrobe necessity – and we’re certainly not one to argue with that. For something that feels nice, not novelty, turn to simple wool-blend knits with sparkling sequin motifs – ideal for wearing in the run up to the big day. Team with a faux leather midi skirt and classic ankle boots for a sophisticated take on festive styling.
3. The Metallic Knit
Showing us that sparkle can be understated, lightweight knits with metallic textures have multifaceted potential when it comes to our winter wardrobes. Whether worn with faux fur textures and wide-leg trousers in plush velvet, or tucked into the waistband of a high-waist midi, these luxe layers keep things feeling modern from day to night.
4. The Fair Isle Jumper
Equal parts fashion-forward and festive, the Fair Isle jumper is a perennial part of our cold-weather wardrobe. In recent years, however, traditional colour palettes have given way to the bold and bright, creating a statement knit that promises not to blend into the background. Ensure yours stays classically cool by pairing it skinny-fit denim and the leather ankle boots that you’ll be wearing all winter.
