The chilly weather is well and truly here, and that makes it the perfect time to snuggle up in cosy knitwear. As well as keeping you warm, knits are a great way to add texture into your outfit (especially if you’re a fan of the ever popular black on black that so many New Zealanders gravitate towards). Here are a few cosy knits we’ve found for you to wrap up in.
When it comes to knits, soft fuzzy textures are the ultimate in coziness. You can bring these lush textures into so many different kinds of outfits so you’ve got that snuggly feeling wherever you go.
Maya Batwing Jumper, $99.90 from K&K (size S-3XL/10-26) (left), Cute Crop Jumper, $99.99 from City Chic (size XS-XXL/14-24) (centre), Sara Poodle Sweater, $89.99 from EziBuy (size 1X-4X/14-28) (right).
If you love to keep things colourful then you’re in luck – this autumn we’re seeing more colourful knits than ever before! From basic blacks to jewel tones to earthy shades, there are so many choices to work with your style.
Soft Black Wool Cardi, $575 from Lost and Led Astray (size M-2XL/14-22) (left), Revive Coatigan, $234.95 from Taking Shape (size XXS-XL/12-24) (centre), eb&ive Turia Cardigan, $109 from Isla-Maree (size M/L) (right).
There’s something so nice about wrapping yourself up in a longline cardi or coatigan, and they’re great for layering over a tee and a pair of leggings, jeggings or trousers. Easiest outfit ever.
Block Panel Jumper, $109.90 from K&K (size S-3XL/10-26) (left), Zanzibar Zebra Jumper, $144.95 from Taking Shape (size XXS-XL/12-24) (centre), North South Curve Merino Stripe Tie-Front Jumper, $129.99 from Farmers (right).
Prefer a pattern? There are a few options out there – some of the more popular patterns at the moment are block panels, animal prints (we’ve spotted a fair bit of leopard, zebra and tiger) and of course the classic stripe.
The perfect finishing touch to any scarf – whether you prefer a classic style with tassels, a snood (also known as a circle or loop scarf) or a wrap, go for something soft and comfortable.
