After a year of living in sweatpants and pyjamas working from home, people have started to prioritize comfort when choosing what to wear. Luckily, there are many ways to stay comfortable without having to sacrifice style.
Knitwear is a staple for fall and winter fashion— it’s simple, warm, and always looks good. As a bonus, it can also be really stylish.
Whether you’ve been searching for the most popular yarn brands to try and knit a sweater yourself or are deciding what pieces are worth buying, here are some great knits to incorporate into your wardrobe this year.
A knit crewneck is a staple that everyone should have in their wardrobe. It can be worn alone on warmer days or as a layering piece to add texture, depth, and warmth to any outfit.
The options are endless for choosing a knit crew, from a fine knit cashmere to a chunky knit wool. Neutral tones are always a safe bet when choosing to spend more money on an item as they will act as versatile pieces that you can style with any outfit for years to come.
If you are knitting a crewneck yourself, have fun with color and style. Once your friends see you in your creation, they may be asking for their own!
Some men fear the cardigan, but we’re here to tell you, it’s time to embrace it! Cardigans are essential for transitional seasons when the day starts cold but ends up being warm or vice versa.
Cardigans are great for experimenting with a bold print or color because you can throw them over a more neutral outfit and have them act as the interesting piece of your look. Neutral cardigans are also great staple pieces for when you need some extra warmth.
Turtlenecks are another staple piece that will always withstand the test of time. This classic style is chic and versatile as it can easily be dressed up or down.
If there is any piece to invest in, a turtleneck is it. The last thing you want is an itchy face, so make sure you pick a high-quality fabric that is soft and durable.
4. Knit Hoodies
Elevate your classic hoodie by opting for a chunky knit hoodie. This cozy shape often has a rep for looking slouchy and slobby, but a chunky knit will make them look more structured and put together.
This unique take on a classic hooded sweater will definitely make you stand out and have people asking you where you got your sweater from. Pair your knit hoodie with a pair of jeans for a relaxed and casual winter look.
A knit vest may be too preppy for everyone’s style, but when done right, it can look really cool.
Vests are a great way to add the texture and warmth of a knit to your look without looking too bulky, especially if you’re planning on finishing your look with a coat.
Vests are another great option for playing with color and pattern because they won’t overwhelm your look.
