Obsessed: 5 Ways to Wear Knits

Once upon a time, knitted garments were only considered acceptable for a Siberian winter. Though undoubtedly comfortable, they weren’t always considered fashionable. Then, contemporary designers such as Prabal Gurung and Proenza Schouler started using knit in their designs and suddenly they became en vogue, thus making “fashion over comfort” an expression of the past. In addition to being utilitarian, they are also incredibly versatile. Get creative with our top 5 ways to wear your new cold weather savior.


1. Supersize It

2. Cool and Contrasted
