Cosying up at home in that lovable (read: old) jumper sounds tempting right now, but AW18 is making a strong case for knits that deserve to be seen. And this time around, it’s all about the styling – whether you go fluffy and cosy or patterned and neon, we’ve got some seriously dreamy looks to inspire your layer game. Knitwear season, it’s good to have you back.
INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
ALL THE KNITWEAR INSPO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW
By Navreen Mangat, 19 October 2018
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: animal print is going nowhere. Our favourite right now? The tiger. This roll-neck number paired with pink and brown hues is giving us all the earthy feels – we're into the fluffy layer draped around the waist for when the chill sets in. Pull on your knee-high winter boots and up top, finish with tortoiseshell cat-eye sunnies for extra animal points.
It’s almost like neon was invented to counteract those miserable, grey days, right? Go for a fluoro-pink layer with a high neck and extra-long sleeves for added cosiness, and tuck it into that midi skirt you wore all summer (checked, obvs). Note: emergency orange and bright green make for equally popping shades, too.
We are so here for rainbow styles. If the balloon sleeves weren’t bold enough, try wearing with clashing prints – think contrasting striped top peeking out underneath plus streetwear-inspired, baggy camo trousers à la this Paris Fashion Week showgoer. Chunky dad trainers play off against the fluffy, heart-shaped bag for the ultimate accessory clash, too.
For old times’ sake
To move your wardrobe forward this season, take a look back. Yep, retro-inspired jumpers are still high on our agenda. Pretty sequin and faux-pearl embellishment nods towards vintage dressing, especially when tucked into 70s-style trousers. Bold, patterned knits topped off with ditsy clutches are giving us a real throwback vibe, too.
