The Latest Trends in Knitwear

Stay warm and stylish with this season's hottest knitwear

Chunky Knits

The chunky knit is one of the biggest celebrity fashion trends for the fall. Look for an oversized knit cardigan that’s long, either to the knee or just below it. Match chunky knits with tight shirts and pants since this knit adds a lot of volume.

Knit Cardigan, Line, $399
Turtleneck, Banana Republic, $74
Black & Gold Bracelet, Ann Taylo,r $58
Tortoiseshell Bracelet, Ann Taylor, $38
Pants, 7 For All Mankind, $215
Boots, Town Shoes, $140

Knit Accessories

The oversized scarf is a must have for fall/winter. One style tip would be to belt it under your jacket so it doesn't move around and fall off. Find a hat with a pom pom for a more playful look but choose one that is medium in size so the look isn't too youthful.

Hat, H&M, $12.95
Scarf, Free People, $68
Cashmere Sweater, Lord & Taylor, $169
Gloves, Eco Design, $38
Jeans, 7 For All Mankind, $215
Boots, Town Shoes, $150

Colour Block Knits

Colour block knits are one of the biggest trends shown on the international runways for fall. Look for darker colours on the bottom of the sweater and lighter tones up top. That will bring focus to your face and camouflage the tummy area.

Sweater, Addition Elle, $49.99
Pants, Jessica Simpson, $ 69
Boots, Town Shoes, $225
Clutch, Melanie Lyne, $43.99

Graphic Knits

These novelty sweaters are a big hit in retail stores right now. Pick a dramatic fun print that you love. Make sure the fit is snug and short because prints can be overwhelming so this will be a perfect fit for any body type.

Sweater, Ann Taylor, $68
Tank, Ann Taylor, $48
Necklace, Ann Taylor, $58
Pants, The Gap, $79.95
Belt, Ann Taylor, $58
Shoes, Converse, $100

Knit Dresses

Knit dresses are great to expand your wardrobe options for fall. Silks are too light and you need to be cozy at the office or parties so knit dresses are your best bet. Pair your knit dress with opaque tights and booties for the day and for the evening swap your booties for pointy toe stilettos.

Dress, Ann Taylor, $98
Belt, H&M, $14.95
Boots, Town Shoes, $225

Style Tip:
Make sure your favourite knit pieces always look their best by de-pilling it when those pesky pills and fuzz show up. A sweater blade and lint brush will help keep your knits looking sharp and flawless
