Fashion trends are always coming and going and are no longer restricted to seasonal changes. One trend that has never really trended out of style is knitwear. From what was once reserved for your grandma’s sweaters, knitwear has now evolved into timeless pieces that are worn yearly, regardless of the season.
Beautiful knitwear is now everywhere, and this style is transcending generations and gender. Anyone can wear it, from baby to boomer, and even men are jumping on the bandwagon too.
Knitwear is especially loved during the colder months, providing the ultimate level of coziness. Nevertheless, this does not mean you need to limit yourself. Moreover, it’s a great piece to wear during the shoulder season when you’re unsure if a full parker is needed, but it’s still too cold outside for a simple shirt.
Let’s dive in and look at knitted fashion trends you can rock while feeling warm and looking stylish.
