What knitwear is in this season?
At this time of year, there is always a huge range of knitwear designs for us to choose from to help us customise our own knit outfits. Having plenty of stylish woollies is essential for keeping you looking incredible in the colder months — and top knit trends to keep an eye out for this year are: oversized, cable knit and striped jumpers.
Roll-neck and polo-neck sweaters
When it comes to be being ‘effortlessly stylish’, there’s nothing better than layering. As the name suggests, layering is achieved by wearing multiple clothing over/under each other — and the polo- or roll- neck sweater is ideal for this. To layer in style, simply pull on a polo neck underneath a square-necked top, then match with your favourite pair of jeans and ankle boots.
We all know how hard it can be to dress for work on a freezing morning. So, make it easy for yourself by embracing the ‘effortlessly stylish’ lifestyle. Try a blazer/turtle-neck combo to keep you smart and cosy, or keep hold of the summer vibe by matching a roll neck top with one of your summery pinafores or sleeveless sundresses.
There’s nothing that screams ‘effortlessly stylish’ like the iconic jumper dress. If you want an outfit that takes you from casual to dressy, team your jumper dress with over-the-knee boots. Or, if you’re in the mood to show off your curves, wrap a chunky belt around your waist. Being such a versatile fashion piece, the jumper dress looks great with anything. Plus, the long, knitted sleeves eliminate the need to search for a matching cardigan — unless you want to add another layer, of course.
Everyone has their favourite pair of boots and this footwear style fits fantastically into the ‘effortlessly stylish’ way-of-life. Boots come in various styles, colours and materials, which is great for creating a truly individual outfit and staying true to the ‘effortlessly stylish’ trend.
Ankle boots dress up any outfit with minimal effort, but it’s actually the sock boot that is a key trend this autumn and winter. Featuring a pointed toe, high heel and textured fabric that fits to the ankle, they slip on easily and look great with jeans during the day and a skirt on a night out. Of course, if in doubt, you can always rely on the ankle boot. Extremely versatile when it comes to matching with an outfit, ankle boots are excellent at retaining their colour and form when you have to trek through snow and sludge! Choose a pair with a chunky heel so that they’re suitable for day and night.
Accessorising your ‘effortlessly stylish’ look
The best thing about knitwear is how easy it is to dress up and customise. Accessorising is key to taking knitwear to the next level this season and statement earrings are a great place to start. Find tassel, chunky metal and huge hoop designs and match them with almost any autumn winter outfit. To make things even easier, why not go for something neutral, like black or gold earrings, to make sure that they complement your ensemble and keep them in your bag for after-work drinks?
During the cold, rainy and snowy season; you need a bag that looks amazing, but is also functional. Put the perfect final twist on your knitwear outfit with trendy leather bags and backpacks. Black is an ideally effortless, everyday option. Buy the shade with a cute pattern to keep things interesting, or match it with jeans and red or gold shoes for a sophisticated autumn look.
