Taking Knitwear to the Streets

Taking Knitwear to the Streets

The weather these days is the perfect time to layer up and wear thicker clothing. Now that we can go out more safely, one trend to bring to the streets is elegant knitwear. Knits are quintessential fall staples, but this year, we’re bringing out the chic in comfortable. Here’s our useful guide on how to take your knitwear to the streets in a stylish way.


Basic Beige

The basic beige sweater is a classic staple that everyone should have. It looks heavenly, feels comfortable, and it’s easy to pair with just about everything. It can look good with jeans on an ordinary day or dressed up with a gorgeous colored or printed skirt. It can even be worn over a dress on a chilly day.

Fringe Details

Fringes have become the additional statement to fall’s knitwear. This decorative border of hanging threads on the edges of cardigans gives a unique flair to this season’s primary clothing. It can be flirty and fun at the same time. It’s meant to be noticed so pair it with basics - jeans, plain-colored tops or bottoms. Let your fringe-detailed cardigan take center stage when you wear it outdoors.

How to Wear It:

With the fringed cardigan as your main clothing item, take inspiration from the colors of your outfit so that your outfit will look well put together. Take this red cardigan with a plaid pattern of white and black as the secondary colors. You can use those secondary colors for your pants, shirt and even shoes. Accessorize subtly so as not to take away the focus from the cardigan. Go with small earrings of the same color palette or even the same pattern as your cardigan. Check out these cute plaid earrings.

Dark Cover-ups

Shop the Adrienne Vittadini Sweater Coatigan With Chest Pockets, $58.95


Darker colors are usually more popular for fall as the darker the color, the better it can absorb heat. Layering up during the fall is a way of keeping warm. These cover-ups will surely give you that warmth you need during the chilly autumn and early winter months. There are many different ways you can wear them.

How to Wear It:

Layer this gray poncho over black fitted leggings and a sweater. As the poncho is loose, it would be better to wear fitted clothing underneath so as not to look too baggy. You can make the outfit look more chic by wearing a belt over the poncho, creating sleeves in effect. It will also prevent the poncho from flying around if the wind is strong. Take one color as your accent color for your accessories. In this case, gold is the pop-out color. Keep the look simple but sophisticated.

It’s a nice pop of color that sparks joy and brings out a smile. It states that fall doesn’t have to be gloomy. Wear these orange knits in a different way this season.
