Now that the cold weather is closing in, it’s time to think about updating your wardrobe and buying yourself some knitwear. This type of clothing and accessories really are the best way to stay warm, as well as look good.
You’re in for a real treat this year with some really stylish knitwear for winter in a range of different styles…
Lovely Long Cardigans
There are some truly amazing looking cardigans out there. Knitwear designers have really used their imaginations and found some really interesting ways to embellish their cardigans. Some designers have opted to edge the opening of their cardigans with flowers or embroidery, while others have played around with length.
This year, most cardigans are long. Most finish just below the bottom, so you should stay lovely and warm while wearing them. However, there are even longer ones available. In fact, some are so long that they can easily be worn as an alternative to a coat. They are so good for using in this way that they are called coatigans.
Most of the jumpers that are available in the shops for 2017 are also longer than average. They are not as colourful as the cardigans, but they are generally brighter than the jumpers available in 2016. If you like to be comfortable, then the fact that many of the cuts are baggier will also be welcome.
Beautiful soft dresses
It is especially nice to see knitwear designers offering a better selection of dresses made from knitted fabrics. This type of fabric is great for curvy women. The soft, yet relatively heavy, material has a smoothing effect that is very flattering. These dresses not only look good, they are a really good to stay warm.
Fun knitted hats
This year, the beanie is well and truly back. However, it is not the plain, often bland ones you have probably seen in the past. Models like Alexander Wang have been spotted wearing really bright and colourful versions on the catwalk and it is a trend that has made its way to mainstream fashion.
Lovely knitted scarves
Scarves are also back in vogue. Again, the main trend is for them to be brightly coloured and on the zany side.
There really is nothing worse than having cold hands, so it really makes sense to invest in at least one pair of good quality gloves. Try to buy a pair that enables you to use your touchscreen devices while you are wearing them. These are far more practical than a pair you have to keep taking off and putting back on again.
Knitwear makes great gifts
If you are wondering what to buy a friend, or family member, for their birthday, knitwear is a particularly good option. Most people will wear these types of items regularly. Of course, all of the above items have the potential to make good presents, but if you would like more knitwear gift ideas, you can find them here.
