So this trend blog is all about knitwear. With the cold nights drawing in and the faint jingle of Christmas songs in the crisp air, winter is truly here. This post is hopefully going to help you narrow done the ridiculous amount of choice in trend this year, as quickly as possible so you don’t freeze to death!
Knitwear is so exciting with so much to choose from and so many retailers doing it well there is literally something for everyone.
The main shapes are cropped fits or oversized boyfriend. I’d say oversized boyfriend is really prominent and super cosy, which is always helpful!
There are so many textures the most being seen at the moment is soft brushed mohair a lot less shaggy than last year and easier to wear, simple crew shapes in bouclé in minimalist soft hues and lots of ribbed knitwear everywhere!
In my humble opinion the most exciting and newest knitwear is the rolled neck, its a really critical trend this season. And it looks like its something that’s going to be in trend for A/W 15 possibly even into 16 so it’s definitely something worth investing in.
Go crazy with your knitwear, really experiment. With so many trends around vintage shops are fantastic to look in. Especially for trends such as deep V necks (I got a gorgeous jumper today at Blue Rinse for £15), sporty knitwear, blanket wraps and chunky jumpers that you could even cut into crops.
The pictures above include some picks from the high street (links below), celebrity interpretations and street style.
Let me know what knitwear you’re buying and I’d love to see any vintage or charity shop finds.
