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
Sometimes the best fit is unfitted. Keep it oversized when it comes to the knit, and contained with a pair of skinnies. The epitome of effortless cool in fall.
2. Cool and Contrasted
Keep it playful and bright with color blocked knits. A ultra-fun approach to the trend
3. Keep it Cropped
For an edgier take on the knit, jump on the cropped bandwagon. Layer it with a coat to get that downtown cool look.
4. The Knit Dress
Once only worn by the preppiest individuals, the knitted dress has now become universal. Try it with thigh high boots for an easy, fall friendly ensemble.
5. The Knitted Scarf.
Last but not least the most classic yet essential piece to come in knit form. Try different colors and lengths to add a new spin to it.
