Another favourite blue shade this season alongside placid blue is dazzling blue, or better known as royal blue. Seen on the runways this season of Tommy Hilfiger, Vera Wang, Pucci, Chloe and Vivienne Westwood. Why not grab some inspo from the runway this season and embrace this colour into you own wardrobe.

The fuzzy knit, a knit that is cozy and ever so stylish. Available is a wide range of colours and prints. Pair your fuzzy knit with sleek black trousers for an elegant look or with a skater skirt and stockings for a playful look like I’ve done so below.

My Top 8 Knitwear Trends

May 21, 2014

Knitwear has made a move this season from “winter wardrobe essential” to one of the seasons hottest trends, a trend where comfort meets glam.

With so many new knitwear designs this season there’s a knit to suit your every occasion and mood.

When it comes to knitwear there’s no real rules or limits, as long as your feel creative and comfortable you in the right space.

Below I’ve put together a list of my top eight knitwear trends this season, from the funky fuzzy knit to the good old classic cable knit.

Sweaters.0011.) The Chunky Knit
Best worn with a pencil skirt, these knits are a huge statement piece this Winter.
Witchery  R849.00

2.) The Statement Knit:
Seen on most of the runways this season, the statement knit is definitely a way to grab attention. Think bold colours like Kenzo, cute cartoons like Givenchy and controversial phrases like Alexander Wang.
Kenzo from Polyvore R4265.00

3.) The Embellished Knit:
A look that will last you the Winter and right into Spring, add a little sparkle during the freezing cold Winter with a dazzling embellished knit.
Topshop R800.00

4.) The Fuzzy Knit:
One of my favourite knits this seasons, it’s ridiculously warm and comfortable. (I own four!) This knit teams up well with any item. I love a contrast in textures though, try leather or denim.
Mr Price R149.99

5.) The Masculine Knit:
Borrowing knits from your boyfriends wardrobe is one of the quickest ways to achieve the masculine look. Stella McCartney introduced a very back-to-school feel with her boyish looking knits on the runway this season.
Cotton On R499

6.) The Cropped Knit:
This cute knit looks perfect in pastel colours. Wear your crop knit with a skater skirts or high waisted jeans to accentuate your waistline.
Zara R180.00

7.) The Cable Knit:
From traditional fisherman-style jumpers in Aran knits, to oversized knitted dresses, the cable knit is a classic that has made it’s way back into our wardrobes and our hearts.
Trenery R999.00

8.) The Print Knit:
The printed knit looks great when wore with a well fitted pair of jeans or if you feeling bold try wearing a complete printed look.
Country Road R849.00
