Though delicate shades of blush, ivory, and oatmeal have made for the big sweater story of the season, another trend has emerged for those of us who shy away from the feminine look. Graphic knits, from Fair Isle to abstract patterns, are an on-trend alternative that can suit all style profiles.
Have a minimalist sensibility? There’s no need to fall back on black: colorblock knits in neutral tones (like this sweater dress by Prabal Gurung) offer a modern, understated take on the trend. Bohemians will love Free People’s fringed cardigans and the Navajo-inspired patterns of Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, perfect with distressed jeans and shearling boots. And for those who see sweaters as synonymous with safe, take a look at Alice by Temperley’s knockout knits, which bring a London punk sensibility to this winter staple.
