From Chanel to Stine Goya, different designers have created different knitwear expressions. We’ve rounded up our top 5 knitwear trends, from oversized jumpers to preppy vests, to keep you warm and stylish throughout the season. Read on for tips and tricks on how to style these 5 trends;
1. COLOUR BLOCK
One of the effortless fun ways to wear knit is to pick fun patterns and colour combinations. The rest? Well, simply pick your favourite colour from the jumper and match the rest of your outfit according to that colour! (Bonus: to make the outfit extra funky, try patterned tights/socks like demonstrated above!)

For those who like a plunging neckline, why not wear a cardigan as your top on a less breezy day? (or as your off-shoulder/peek-a-boo top like Katie Holmes) Complete the chic but easy look with a pair of straight-legged jeans and some mules. To fully utilise the neckline, layer different lengths necklaces to jazz it up!

If your legs are immune to the weather, wear your knits boyfriend-style and skip the bottom (or wear a pair of shorts for security reasons)! What’s so great about oversizes knits is that they always allow room for layering — a thin turtleneck knit or a polo-neck top to create a more interesting neckline. Wear the outfit with your favourite long boots to make up for the lack of long pants!

4. PREPPY VEST
Just when you thought you had left the days of wearing school uniform sweater vests behind, the preppy knit trend has been revived for the better. Wear it as it is or dress it up with wearing a shirt with puffy sleeves underneath the vest to create that latest 2019 winter silhouette.

What better ways to brighten up winter blues than with colourful jumpers? Clueless when it comes to finding colouring matching/contrasting bottom? Pull up an image of an Adobe colour wheel from Google and using the colour directly opposite the colour of your jumper, and there you have your perfect contrast colour!
