We don’t know about you, but we’re seriously in need of some smart knitwear. With Lockdown 2.0 about to end and and some semblance of Christmas plans ahead, wearing smart knitwear toes the line between comfort and elegance with ease.
Whilst an oversized jumper and leggings (read, pyjamas bottoms) will always be an outfit favourite, now we’re getting out and about and the festive season is finally here, take inspiration from our knitwear style guide that will have you dressed to impress.
Black and white will always build the foundations of our wardrobe. When it comes to smart knitwear, invest in a forever piece that will keep your outfit looking considered year and out. We love knitwear by French brand Rodier for stylish winterwear to have you looking effortlessly cool.
Unsure what to wear? A jumper dress is always a good idea. Comfy-yet-chic, simply sport alongside your favourite chunky boots by day, then switch up for some stilettos in the evening. Simple.
Knitwear + the colour grey = an eternally fashionable style choice. Keep your look pared back with a wintery grey jumper, dress or layers, then complete alongside your favourite boots or sneakers on off duty days. Perfection.
Up your layering game with an easy-breezy cardigan or poncho cape. Faithful hoodie – it’s been fun, but it’s time we take things up a notch for the months ahead.
Bring an injection of colour to your smart knitwear looks with a vibrant jumper or top. Perfect to see you from winter all the way through to the end of spring, these light layering pieces scream sophistication.
One hue not for you? The colour block trend isn’t going anywhere, so embrace it with your knitwear. Keep your focus on the main event and keep your bottom half plain, wearing a midi skirt or everyday pair of jeans.
Keep it cool in camel and other neutral shades with classic statement pieces that will earn you no end of compliments.
Get co-ordinated with a matching top and bottom combo like the below from Rodier. This year is all about big collar energy, so the frill detail on this cardigan will have you looking right on style.
We’ve got an eye for leopard print this winter. Think print with an animal style, sure to attract all eyes on you (in the best way).
