One way of dealing with the plummeting temperature, is to stock up on memorable knitwear. It looks great, it feels warm, it is a win win. Killing two birds with one stone never looked so good
If there was ever a season with great knits, it is now. The choice of prints, techniques, hues, cuts is as diverse as it gets. Below are just some of my favorites. With these in my closet, winter would have nothing on me.
Jil Sander chunky knit cashmere sweater.
There is something precise in functionality about this sweater. Pair that with the luxury of the cashmere and you have a very special piece.
Channel ski get-a-away it is.
Rosie Sugden Scottish Cashmere tartan pom-pom beanie.
I crown this pom-pom beanie, the stuff that hand-knitted intarsia dreams, are made of. There is a highland romance about it that would be wonderful worn with anything.
I’d wear the 100% cashmere beanie with a vintage beaded floor length gown, silk pajama pants, faux fur and well worn vintage boots. This I would top off with an air that I can only describe as the love child of 80′s new romantic and Seattle’s 90′s grunge.
A pom-pom beanie never provoked so much inspiration.
Missoni slub wool knit sweater.
This jumper makes me feel a little dizzy but it is a good sort of dizzy. Blurred lines in zany violet and blue will add dimension to any outfit. I can almost hear the Missoni powers that be, saying, you are welcome.
People Tree slub wool knit sweater.
The feel good factor gets even better with these earth conscious wool socks. Made from 100% recycled wool, the long socks are hand knitted in Nepal. The mish-mash of patterns is a happy pill in knit form.
Dorothy Perkins plait detail jumper.
A fun shade of orange and plait detail make interesting bedfellows. I would throw this on with mannish oversize proportions.
Crumpet ochre floral scarf.
Oh Crumpet, how many ways do I adore on you? The luxury of 100% cashmere, high pigment palettes and memorable prints etc. Scarf heaven is certainly this amber gold and navy design.
