Celebrate duality in dressing with the season’s most unexpectedly chic knits.
There is something seasonably right about a super-cozy sweater in winter. Timeless and functional, sometimes this perennial favorite gets a bad rep. Case in point: the unironically ugly sweater. But, push fashion-forward we must. From tonal color-blocking to crochet patterns, knits this season escape sartorial boundaries without fear.
Skirts and trousers prove that this underestimated staple really can be chic. Turning up the volume on tailoring has an unexpectedly flattering effect. An oversized sweater streamlines any silhouette (especially when worn with high rise pants), and will make your waist appear smaller. The trick? Monochromatic colors and sleek shapes, and keeping the rest of your look as minimalist as possible with muted jewelry and point-toe heels. Wrap yourself in a cuddly version or opt for a sleek, cropped style and pair with statement denim.
With its prominent versatility, fine detailing and universally flattering fit – sweaters truly are for everyone. This season is special for an important reason: the creation of got-to-have-them statement makers that get hearts racing and heads turning. These pieces go beyond the basic investment buy to wear time and again. Designers take perpetually chic pieces and reimagine them; throwing out the rules, ripping tradition at its seams and creating magic in the process. You’ll want to wear them over and over, and not just to your ugly sweater holiday office party. This winter, there’s something to complement every taste and plenty of pieces to break you out of your comfort zone. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and dare we say, the season of high-fashion knitwear?
