11 Cute Knits That Will Instantly Up Your Outfit Game

To keep you hawt when its cool (and vice versa)…

This week we’re paying homage to the unsung hero of every fashion girl’s wardrobe – knitwear.

Before you hit the snooze button, hear us out – we’re not talking about just any knitwear… we’re talking about standout knitwear. You know – the kind that cool girls like Alexa Chung layer under leather overalls or over cropped jeans. *Bonus tip* add statement earrings and killer sunglasses (like these Gucci’s) and you’ll be pretty much winning at life.

Yep, arming yourself with a few cute knits (see what we did there?) will instantly up your outfit game. Layer them up over boyfriend shirts in winter, pair them with cute skirts in spring and throw them over your bikini on vacay (then queue the aperitif!).

Bright colours are fun (red and pink are our favourites RN!), chunky textures create cool outfit details and structured sleeves keep things simple and chic.

See our super kewl edit of knits below, or get comfy and peruse the endless options on NET-A-PORTER here (we found it really hard to choose!).
