Whether It’s time to up your daily walk game with a new wardrobe addition or you’re slowly emerging from stricter lockdown restrictions and easing yourself back into getting dressed, knitwear is key for wrapping up. Elevate your knitwear wardrobe with these three trending styles that’ll keep you comfy yet chic.

Knitwear Co-Ords

For a look that is easy to put together but looks instantly considered and stylish, snap up a comfy co-ord. With the throw-on qualities of a jumper dress but the mix and match opportunities of separates, knitwear co-ords are your new go-to. These cosy two-pieces come in a variety of forms, from midi skirts and roll neck jumpers to wide leg trousers and matching oversized knits. We’re even fans of the knitted vest and short combo, sure to swamp your Instagram feeds as the weather warms.

How To Style Knitwear Co-ords

The joy of these duos is that they're a ready made outfit in themselves. You can separate the pieces and wear them apart too but paired together they create a sophisticated tonal look. Team with chunky trainers or boots and layer your favourite coat over the top for chilly days.


Button up knits are taking centre stage this year but worry not, they’re far from frumpy. Plus they make for easy dressing which let’s face it, is essential as we emerge from our lockdown uniforms and begin to get dressed up again. Perfect for people who can’t commit to too many layers for fear of feeling too hot or too cold, this layering piece is the easiest of outfit add-ons.

How To Style Cardigans

Whether you like your cardigans cropped, candy coloured or printed you can wear it open over a top of your choice or buttoned up and teamed with a necklace, simply add your favourite jeans. Mix it up with ribbed textures and embroidered numbers and size up for an oversized laidback vibe. Chunky knit cardigans are perfeck for extra warmth too.

Statement Sleeves

If you’ve yet to jump on the statement sleeve bandwagon you’re not too late. The oversized eighties shoulders and sleeves trend is going nowhere fast. Last summer we lusted over the Insta famous shoulder padded tee but frankly, it’s not going to cut it in the colder months. Choose a puff sleeve knit, a balloon sleeve jumper or one with exaggerated shoulders to stay comfy but still make a style statement. After months of hoodies and sweatshirts we’re so ready for an attention grabbing knit.

How To Style Statement Sleeves

Voluminous sleeves and puffed shoulders look best when paired with a form-fitting bottom half so simply team with your choice of jeans and layering necklaces and you’re set. Keep it simple and let the shoulders or sleeves do the talking.
