What To Wear

New Season Knitwear

When it’s cold outside, there’s nothing cosier than a sumptuous knit to wrap yourself up in. Whether it’s a chunky cable knit jumper, a sleek midi knitted skirt paired with knee-high boots, a longline cardigan to layer over your favourite leggings or an elegant knit dress to keep warm and winter-ready at formal occasion.

Knitwear is not only practical, it also oozes sophistication. High-quality fabric, stylish prints and striking embellishments will all add to your look. A knit pullover with added sparkle using metallic yarn or shiny sequins can be a perfect fit for a glamorous night out, while a chic knee-length bodycon dress teamed with closed-toe heels would make a super-stylish ensemble for lunch with the girls on a chilly winter’s day.

Read on to discover our top picks of the best ways you can make the most of your knitwear this cold weather season, to stay toastie and warm while making heads turn with an on-trend runway-worthy, yet cosy style.

Evening Out

Embellishments are the perfect way to elevate a cold weather outfit and make it fitting for a formal night out. Whether it’s a festive cocktail party, dinner with friends or a family birthday bash, you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice when it comes to party-ready knitwear.

Try a sequinned or beaded knit jumper paired with fitted trousers or coated leather-look skinny jeans. There are so many styles to choose from, such as metallic studs adorning the neckline and sleeves, or an all-over sequin style to really dazzle and shine.

Alternatively, a high-quality knitted top in a striking print can be very elegant when paired with a metallic or leather skirt. Try a stiped print or a colour block design to add some drama to your look. Then simply add a pair of stylish heels and a clutch bag to complete your style.

If you really want to go big and bold, try an animal print knitted dress. Layer with a faux leather jacket and finish your look with leather boots – the perfect wild style for an evening out with friends.


Knitwear and informal off-duty style are a match made in heaven. When the weather feels cold, nothing looks more elegant than a chunky knit jumper teamed with a pair of fitted jeans and either fresh trainers or ankle boots. Try a statement cable knit style or go bold with a colourful floral print or stripe.

During transitional seasons, when you want to cosy-up but it’s not quite time for the thick winter coat to come out, try an elegant knitted poncho or a thicker knit longline cardigan. These are great for elevating a neutral-toned outfit by adding a splash of colour or a bright print to your look. Try a style with a fringed hemline, a wide collar or even a hood. You’ll be able to wear this classic look on repeat as it never goes out of style.  

Mix style and statement with a vibrant printed knit jumper. From animal prints to florals, stripes, polka dots and chevron designs, the choices are endless. Choose from bold and bright colour palettes from shocking magenta to rich cobalt, or go stark and icy with a monochrome look. Nothing elevates an off-duty style more than a pair of your favourite casual pants or skirt paired with a showstopping knit sweater.


Longline cardigans are great for layering. Choose any ensemble from a denim midi skirt and blouse, to leggings and a tunic top, then pull on a longline knit cardigan and you’ll not only create a chic and sophisticated style, but you’ll instantly transform your outfit into one that’s totally winter-ready. Cinch your cardigan in at the waist with a wide leather or metallic chain belt, and you’ll have a look that’s perfect for a weekend meal out with friends.

If you like trousers for the office, try tucking a fine knit turtle neck jumper into some tailored ankle length pants and finishing your style with a metallic embellished belt and some elegant heels court shoes. For those that need to stick to a conservative office dress code, many suits will coordinate perfectly with a high neck pullover instead of a traditional shirt or blouse.

A midi knit dress with closed-toe heels and opaque tights are great for showing off some curves, while still maintaining a polished and professional style. You can add some tailored structure to your look by layering with a longline trench coat.

5 Ways Knitwear Can Elevate Your Style

  1. The Dress. Choose between sleek bodycon shapes and flared pleated styles. A knitted dress is the height of chic. Simply pair with elegant heels and a matching clutch to ooze sophistication.
  2. The Skirt. A cosy way to look polished and smart. Tuck in a silk blouse or double up with a co-ordinating knit sweater. Try a colour block print or a fabric with texture to add definition to your silhouette.
  3. The Cardigan. Whether it’s slim fitting and longline or short and boxy, a knitted cardigan is a wardrobe statement. Try a style with a wide collar, an open front, a belted waist or even an elegant hood. When the weather turns cold, nothing looks chicer than a high-quality knitted cardi.
  4. The Sweater. Use a knitted sweater to add some vibrant colour or pattern to your outfit. Dress up a pair of casual jeans and trainers with a vibrant floral print, or turn heads with a statement stripy style. Whatever your taste, this is a classic look you can keep in your closet for years.
  5. The Outerwear. Think ponchos, oversized or longline knit cardigans and try them in a chunky knit fabric. These are great for transitional season style that you can layer over almost anything to keep you feeling warm and cosy, yet still runway chic.
