Shopping For Knits

This post is kind of an sequel of the previous post about this seasons knitwear. Here are affordable versions of the knit trends.

I love the cowl neck detail on Alice + Olivia Cashmere Cowl Dress $264 from ShopBop (left). K.A.7 by Katayone Adeli Thermal Sweater Dress $248 from ShopBop (center), is a great classic knit dress. The Nora Hooded Wrap Sweater $43.50 from Delias (right), can be worn with jeans and a long sleeve shirt underneath or sleeveless with tights.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Xavier Sweater $368 from ShopBop (left) is a pricier option, but a great statement chunky knit cardigan. Kimchi & Blue Snowflake Stitch Sweater $68 from Urban Outfitters (center) is oversized and cosy. It's perfect with black tights and high platforms. The Kimchi & Blue Arcadia Sweater Coat $88 from Urban Outfitters (right) is practical and looks great with a chinched belt.

Alexander Wang Tiger Intarsia Cardigan $649 from ShopBop (left) has a gorgeous tiger pattern. On with the animals, the Lux Equestrienne Sweater $58 from Urban Outfitters (center) is adorable. Lux Star Intarsia Sweater $34.99 from Urban Outfitters (right) has a quirky pattern.

Check out the knitwear runway looks in the previous post for some styling tips.

patterned knits is so mccartney (as in stella). as much as i love stella mccartney's designs, snowmen and penguins have no need to be on an adult's sweater.

S ^^ Yes what's up with the overly priced Chanel Penguin Sweater???? J'Adore what say you?

Kaye said...

s and riz, you just reminded me of Irina's "penguin situation" video! Hilarious indeed. But I know what you mean- why would I want penguins on a CHANEL when I could probably get something similar at high street prices!

Sweater dresses with completely opaque blk tights always look great in my opinion!

Patent Shoes && Rants said...

My obsession.


riz said...

Kaye - totally agree with you. J'Adore and Patent - I really have to say that Chunky knits are one of the next generation of modern classics! Good intuition!
