From Alexa to Kaia Gerber, These Are the 9 Celebrity Knitwear Trends We Love

We can’t get enough of knitwear at the moment. Through these dark early days of the year, wrapping yourself in wool really is the only answer. 

If, like us, you're feeling a little uninspired with your current sweater collection (or worse—you’ve realised you have moths), there’s no need to panic. Why? Because winter 2020 is the season for knitwear trends, with yarns of all types taking on various forms from co-ords to jumper dresses and everything in between.

If there was ever a time to get playful and expand your collection, it’s now. We turned to our favourite celebrities for some inspiration on the most exciting and wearable styles for the new season, and they’ve certainly delivered. As soon as we saw Alexa’s patchwork number, we knew we had to have it. Cardigans are very much still a thing and taking on new iterations from embellished to long, as nailed by Naomie Harris and Sienna Miller recently.

Kaia Gerber in Cable Knit

Style Notes: Kaia is the queen of weekend dressing, and this outfit is no different. We want to copy her cable knit, leather blazer, straight jeans and Converse immediately. 

Alexa Chung in Patchwork 

Style Notes: Trust Alexa to bring back patchwork jumpers and make them cool. We predict a huge resurgence of this trend after seeing this look. 

Stacey Dooley in a Knitted Tracksuit

Style Notes: By now you should know how obsessed we are here at Who What Wear UK with Stacey Dooley's style. Somehow she manages to make this casual Zara tracksuit look effortlessly chic. 

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in a Ribbed Knit

Style Notes: Rosie's Khaite ribbed bodysuit look is now reaching iconic status. There's still a few in stock, so be quick if you can't resist any longer. 

Hailey Bieber in a Cropped Knit

Style Notes: Hailey schools us all on how to wear a cropped jumper with just a flash of midriff. Special mention for her on-point accessorising too. 

Naomie Harris in an Embellished Cardigan

Celebrities in Knitwear: Naomie Harris



Style Notes: Naomie takes the preppy cardigan look and immediately makes it luxe with this Miu Miu number. Jazz yours up with pearls or crystal buttons. 

Sienna Miller in a Long Cardigan

Celebrity Knitwear Trends: Sienna Miller



Style Notes: Who would have thought a cardigan could work so well over a fancy wrap dress? Well, Sienna, and that's why she's consistently one of our best dressed celebs. 

Fearne Cotton in Colour Pop

Style Notes: You can always count on Fearne to make you smile with her outfits. She's just so great at pulling off colour and prints. We want this colour-block look in our wardrobes right now. 

Kylie Jenner in a Jumper Dress

Style Notes: Rather understated for Kylie, but we're very into this minimalist bouclé knit dress look paired with tough black accessories.
