Update your winter wardrobe by mixing these cold-weather staples with fresh ideas!

Knitwear is one of the most versatile staples you can add to your winter wardrobe. And while they may be the most tried and tested trend against dropping temperatures, there are a number of ways to level up this classic. 

Thinking of fresh ways to style your favourite cosy knits or looking for a new favourite to add to your list?  Then having an assortment of stylish staples lined up and ready for rotation is essential. From laid-back casual to elevated style, from lightweight shrugs to fluffy cardis, knitwear statement pieces are here to get you ready for when the cold creeps in.

Here are 5 knitwear fashion trends in 2022 that deserve a spot in your winter wardrobe.

Waffle Knit in Rust

1. The Universal Button-Up Knit

This fashion favourite is the most comfortable knitwear for women to cuddle in during winter. Ideal for an everyday look, it’s a classic piece that you wear on its own, tucked into pants or a midi skirt and paired with some booties to create your new go-to outfit.

This Billie Knit Button-Up gives fierce fashion without the frumpy feel that you sometimes get from oversized knits. Looks especially cute paired with slim-fit pants and boots for a sexy silhouette.

2. Nothing Adds a Pop of Fun or a Punch of Cool Quite Like Prints

When styled right, cardigans can be quite a statement piece! A great way to add personality to your everyday cardi is by injecting patterns into your ensemble. Look effortlessly chic while staying comfy by pairing your printed knit sweater with jeans, or choose straight-up glam with leather. 

The great thing is, that there’s always a perfect print to match your mood. Be the darling of dopamine dressing with some sweet floral patterns. Or, sport a sophisticated girl-on-the-go look with a lightweight animal print cardi

3. Take It to The Next Level with Texture

How about adding dimension to your overall look with texture? It’s the best way to pull off a preppy, polished girl look with an uber-relaxed vibe. If you want to play the layering game, wear it with a skirt, belt, some long boots, and an oversized coat. Or, go monochromatic by teaming it up with pants and shoes in the same colour.  And because of the added volume, it’s important to choose one with a drape that flatters.

Contrast streamlined separates with fluffy textures like the Waffle Knit or the Lacey Knit by Freez. Looks especially fabulous finished off with a scarf and denim jacket.

4. Not Like Your Nana’s Chunky Cardi

This winter staple has gone a long way from how Grandma used to wear them. This modern take on the chunky, oversized knit has to be our favourite. The Jacquard Cardi in this gorgeous shade of tan is cute, comfortable and effortlessly chic. An easy way to make it look sassy is by rocking one shoulder bare. Or, stand out from the crowd of solids with a lovely multicoloured crochet pullover like the Bee Madison Carly Cardi

5. Meet Your Transeasonal Soulmate

The easy and effortless shrug makes the list, of course! This trendy, lightweight piece is top of mind regardless of season or occasion.

Give your otherwise ordinary outfit a facelift — add a solid coloured shrug for a brighter look. Pair it with your everyday casuals like high waist jeans and a fitted top and you are good to go (and looking extra cool, too!). 

Shrugs also work well with layers. Create an interesting and vibrant contrast with various cuts and colours. Midi skirt outfits paired with a long cardigan make for one stylish outfit that will keep you cosy and looking chic while running errands. Fancy a night out? You can layer a lightweight, long-sleeved cardi with a mini, a pair of stockings and some knee-high boots.

Remember, these knits transcend seasons and generations for a reason. So don’t be afraid to splurge on more than one, especially if it makes you look and feel good!
