If there’s a trend worth hopping on board this season, it’s winter knits in the coolest hues! Whether it’s in the form of a tunic, jersey or cardigan, just make sure that it’s plush, chunky and thick enough to keep you comfy throughout the Autumn and Winter chills. Foschini is leading the trend when it comes to knitwear! Spend your weekends wrapped up in soft-to-the-touch fabrics that look and feel great while relaxing on the couch with a warm cup of hot chocolate. For a more 9-5 appropriate look, layer your jersey over your favourite denim shirt or style a cable knit tunic with tights and comfortable heels or winter boots. This way the relaxed fit of the jersey will look casual instead of sloppy.
A good knit is like a well designed couch: it’s classic, beautiful, comfortable, never quite lets on exactly how old it is and remains snug no matter how long you’ve had it. Investing in classic shapes in the form of mock turtlenecks and knit dresses that are designed with a modern elegance in mind is a must. This season, opt for slim fit versions of chunky knit jumpers for a refreshed take on a classic wardrobe staple. Bonus style points if your knitwear has details such as lace-up ribbons as this will add a feminine touch to your look.
If you’re a fan of the athleisure trend that’s been dominating the fashion world lately then pair your joggers with a tight fitted jersey and balance the sporty element with a classic denim jacket and heels. Joggers are the type of pants that you can wear every day of the weekend as they’re comfortable and easy to style. Be wary of wearing joggers to work as they may look a bit sloppy for a formal office environment. Instead, pair your knitwear with skinny jeans that fit like a glove and have been designed to lift, smooth and accentuate your curves.
