The New Knit

The New Knit

If fashion isn’t quite your thing, you’ll particularly love this wintery trend. It’s the knitwear wardrobe must-have of the season! Knits are increasingly gaining the lead with Kim K’s rendition of monochrome lounge separates. Her new line of loungewear SKIMS collection sold out instantly. The Cozy collection is everything we’re looking for this chilly time of year. 

Although knits can be fluffy like Kim’s, we were more inclined to the minimalist monochromatic knits with smoother seams and cashmere-like finishes. Knits are a staple piece, essential for almost every outfit, not to mention the comfort blanket we imagine it to be. 

What makes knits so simple and effortless is the layering option it provides. Pair a knit cashmere sweater with a sequined dress in the same colour, and you’re ready to be featured in a high profile fashion magazine. 

Yes, it is that simple to look like you’ve spent a bomb on your outfit. But we’ll show you how you can do it for much less.

Look 1: The monochrome minimalist

Minimalism has and will forever be a thing. And it’s the better option when you need neutral ensembles to go with everything in your wardrobe. It’s also the opposite of fast fashion since knits are made in luxury fabrics like cashmere and wools.

Look 2: The Clean Urban

The clean urban look is the city look, somewhat utilitarian with hints of clean simplicity. It consisted of layering, colour blocking, pops of mini motifs and prints, and of course, a knit for breezier days.

Look 3: The Environmentalist

Another trend we cannot get over this season is the dark tropical/floral prints of winter and spring. It’s a cleaner approach to print, with an added twist of knitwear texture.

Look 4: Woodstock

With so many fascinating blends of trends this season, we wanted to incorporate a little knit to everything. Knits are seen in all ensembles, from modern minimalism to the 70s Hippie. Since knits were huge during the retro era, it made a natural comeback.

Look 5: The Bold Brave

Bold colours blended with bold accessories are also trending this winter season. Colours signify so much attitude and personality. This season, we’re looking at eccentric and expressive voices of the millennial woman.
