When I was a kid, I hated knitwear. It meant it was the cold season and I had to wear layers of them in order to stay warm. At the time, I thought they were the uncoolest piece of clothing that you can ever wear, especially the turtlenecks, which I felt they were slowly strangling me, making me suffocate the entire day at school.
Years went by, I grew up and eventually came to my senses. Now I can easily say I'm a big fan of cashmere and I think it's one the most stylish fabrics ever invented by humans.
As you know, this autumn the catwalks were filled with knits: sweaters, dresses, skirts and even trousers, you could find them in any shape possible. So how to wear them? Here are some easy rules that might help you solve the mystery:
First rule - Pay attention to the shoes. On a closer look to this season's catwalk, you will notice none of the models wearing a head-to-toe knitwear outfit is wearing high heels. Knits are all about comfort, which means you also need to have comfortable shoes. So the secret behind this look is to pair it with either Oxford shoes or sneakers (preferably Stan Smiths, if you ask me).
Second rule - Wear an unexpected accessory like a big chungy bracelet, that might also be decorated with some crystals or a pearl earring. An elegant piece of jewellery will look just fine with this ensemble. Trust me!
Third rule - Wear fur with it. Since it's cold outside you obviously need to wear a coat on top, so make sure it's a fur coat. Yeah, you heard me. Fur will look fantastic with the knits and it will give you a sophisticated overall look.
