Those of us who embrace autumn with an open heart and the hope of a fully restocked wardrobe will not consider a shift into knitwear to be premature this week. The weather has been relatively mild—so what? I'm ready for woolens, and I'm particularly ready for a rising knitwear trend that feels fresh and grown-up and quite easy to look really good in.
Knitted co-ords are my new favourite thing. Pre-styled enough to feel considered and more directional than a mere winter dress, but essentially matchy and therefore easy to throw on, this is cosiness combined with being pulled-together. These skit and jumper combinations always look sophisticated (just make sure they aren't too clingy and tight), yet they couldn't be simpler to grab out of your wardrobe each morning.
Right now it's best to wear them with bare legs sans coat, and with the addition of weather-appropriate footwear, depending on the day. However, come the colder months, you'll be glad you invested in such snuggly, flattering things because they'll look equally great under a gigantic piece of outerwear as well as with tights and boots. Trust me: I've been wearing these powerful knitted twosomes for years now, and now it looks like others are hopping aboard my jumper train.
Keep scrolling to see how other girls are wearing their chosen knitted co-ords and shop some of the best around.
When is an extreme thigh split considered classy? When it's rendered in knitwear. Nice one, Irene.
Your pieces don't have to match in their knit (zoom in on Beatrice to see the different between her skirt and jumper), but it is nice to match in colour for the ultimate super-rich look.
Cream and brown hues are particularly prevalent in this knitwear realm.
Chloé found her knitted co-ords at COS, so don't be fooled into thinking this is a trend you cannot buy on a budget.
Ellie's soft-pink roll neck and tube skirt are effortless. And what's more, they're from H&M.
