The fall catwalks have spoken and this season’s lineup of knitwear trends is looking pretty tasty. Exhibit A: The half-zip sweater. Granted, there’s something seriously '90s and dressed-down Dadcore about this vibe, but with a fresh nod from Kenzo and ASOS Insider Lesley, the high-neck knit is firmly back on our radar.

Kenzo is renowned for mixing things up, so it’s no surprise that the half-zip made a quirky appearance at the Paris-based label's FW17 show. This throwback detail was featured on cozy, block-colored tanks and contrasted with white, space-feel skirts and boots for a 1997-meets-2047 vibe.

Thanks to ASOS Insider Lesley, you can trial this knitwear trend du jour with pieces you already own. Start with an oversized zip-up sweatshirt and team with rolled-up, dark denim. Then, take your favorite pair of black sneaks and accessorize with fishnet socks and hoop earrings.
