It’s fall now and in some places it’ already cold, in others it’ll be cold soon, so some knitwear is a must. What to buy to stay warm without sacrificing style? Here are several types of sweaters and cardigans that are in trend now and will be for a long time as they are pretty minimalist and basic.
First of all, these should be of basic colors: black, white, grey, beige, navy or any other basic shade. Second, they should be timeless, so no logos, no prints and no other super trendy detailing – go for classics. Third, prefer natural materials like wool, alpaca wool, angora or cashmere, each piece should have at least 15% of that to keep you warm. Natural fabrics will keep you warm, will last long and look cool. Now let’s take a look at some options.
A turtleneck should be in some basic shade, choose something basic for your own wardrobe, if it’s emerald or burgundy, let it be. Go for a fitting or straight silhouette to wear it under a blazer, a jacket or even a shirt.
High Neckline Jumpers
A jumper can be worn with jeans or a skirt without any coverup like a blazer and a jacket – it will give a simple and minimalist look. Prefer oversized and straight silhouette jumpers as you’ll be able to create layered looks with them and they are more modern. Don’t go for deep cuts, they will be colder than usual ones with high necklines.
Take it oversized – this is a great idea that will allow you creating super layered looks that will keep you warm on cold days. Prefer a deep V-neckline if possible, it will make your wardrobe more varied. Wear it over a dress, over a shirt or a turtleneck and add a skirt or jeans.
Chunky Knit Cardigans
Choose oversized one, with V-neckline, with buttons and pockets, show off the texture. Such a piece can be worn with a turtleneck or shirt, pair it with any jeans or pants. Why choosing chunky knit? Because the lower layers should be thinner than the last one, so prefer such knit to allow yourself wearing rather warm clothes underneath.
