Hit refresh on knitwear and get ready to explore versatile knit pieces that will see you through each season, from spring layers to summer crochet and everything in between.
Often, when we think of knitwear, we think of chilly winter days and cosy evenings spent curled up around the fireplace. However, as gloomy skies and freezing temperatures evolve into sun filled days, the classic chunky knit evolves too – into new season styles and trends that are perfect for the warmer days ahead.
A non-negotiable in any winter wardrobe, a classic chunky knit sweater is the ideal piece to keep you feeling cosy and looking gorgeous throughout the colder months.
In an ode to iconic 70’s fashion, we’re loving cropped lengths paired with snug turtle necks to keep the chill out. Liven up your look with bold block colours such as green and orange or lean into deep winter hues including dusty pink and rich ginger.
Pair a chunky cropped knit sweater with a high waisted midi or maxi skirt in a complementary shade or pattern and finish the look with heeled leather boots. The cropped hem and chunky texture of the sweater creates a stunning contrast against the skirt, elongating your lower half.
Although the mornings may still feel fresh, once the sun has begun to warm the crisp spring air, we’re shedding the winter layers and enjoying a taste of what’s to come.
A lightweight knit such as yarn is a great alternative to the thick, chunky textiles that saw us through winter. Opt for easy layers, such as a knit tank and shrug combination to keep you the perfect temperature throughout the day, no matter what your plans.
A coordinating top and cardigan or shrug combination gives a stunning put together look without too much effort. Early in the season, pair it with slouchy, wide leg jeans or trade them for a flowing mini skirt as summer approaches.
Although typically a winter staple, the height of summer doesn’t mean that knits are off the cards. Super fine knits and bohemian inspired crochet pieces are a must for throwing on over your bikini post swim or layering for an effortlessly cool festival fit. Look for shorter hems and flattering features such as a low scoop back.
Find a dress that will see you seamlessly transition from the beach to the bar, layer a slinky maxi knit dress over your favourite bikini and complete the look with a pair of leather sandals, gold jewellery and an oversized woven beach bag.
As the days begin to get shorter and temperatures slowly drop, we find ourselves reverting back to thicker knit blends in longline and oversized silhouettes. A cardigan is the perfect piece to transition from summer through to autumn and winter and can be worn on its own or layered with your existing wardrobe.
Pair a neutral oversized knit cardigan with a mini dress and brown knee high leather boots in quintessential autumnal shades of burnt orange, brown and cream.
With a vast array of textures, colour palettes, prints and silhouettes to choose from, knitwear doesn’t have to be exclusive to the winter months. Experiment with layers, crochet finishes and seasonal shades for a knitwear-centric outfit that’s perfect for each season.
