My latest editorial is for ELLE Magazine South Africa is now out. I love working with the ELLE Belles they truly have become a part of my modelling family.
Our latest editorial together was shot by, surprise, Justin Polkey 😉 Because we can’t get enough of each other, and is all about getting cosy in layered chunky knitwear, tweed and textured wool.

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.
1.) The Chunky Knit
Best worn with a pencil skirt, these knits are a huge statement piece this Winter.
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
