Forget sequins, forget big-shouldered volume – this week we’re talking comfy, wearable, warm-to-the-core clothes! Oh yes, this week, we’re mad about knits!
The mornings are getting darker and there’s a definite October chill is in the air. So it’s no big surprise that cardigans are having a massive revival and scarves are starting to tip-toe back onto the fashion scene. Knits are a style staple when it comes to the Winter months and we wouldn’t be without them, not ever!
But staying toasty doesn’t mean neglecting your fashion duty, because the Winter trends always have something in-store for your treasured knits…
The bigger the knit, the better – that’s the rule for Autumn/Winter 2009. Chunky hats, scarves and gloves are accessory musts, while cardigans, jumpers and ponchos will reign supreme in your wardrobe. Look out for loosely draped sleeves, they’re a must this season, and make sure you’ve got plenty of waist-cinching belts to maintain that feminine shape!
Pile on knit after knit – jumpers, cardigans, scarves and gloves, wear them all together. It might sound like good-old Winter logic, but it’s actually a hot trend this season. The catwalks have been packed with mix-and-match knitted looks, from short-sleeved shrugs coupled with ground-skimming scarves to patterned-and-matched dress-cardi combos!
Knits work a treat on your feet! From socks to knitted boots, try wearing your knits below the waist for a great alternative look. And if you’re feeling really brave, invest in a pair 80’s leg-warmers and do two trends in one!
