5 winter knitwear trends to keep you snuggly this winter

5 winter knitwear trends to keep you snuggly this winter

As a self-confessed Christmas addict, I love this time of year.

The nights are getting colder.

It’s now legitimate to put the fire on and snuggle up with a blanket.

Everything is starting to twinkle, so I can start getting my decorations up.

And it’s not just the sofa getting cosy.

Winter woolies

Whatever the season, my wardrobe is full of cardigans and jumpers. It’s like wearing a hug (or duvet) depending on the style.

I have wool, or rather acrylic, for any weather.

Although I buy new knitwear each year, I still tend to wear my favourites from seasons past year in year out.

This winter, I’ve decided to have an overhaul of my winter woollies.

So what are the winter knitwear trends for AW 17/18?

Cable knit

I LOVE cable knit.

Whether you go for a tight fit sweater, oversized jumper or long cardigan, cable knit adds texture and interest to an otherwise plain pullover.

The classic cable knit has had a makeover this winter too, seeing cropped and mega chunky versions hitting the shop windows.

No, don’t check the date of this post – it’s not a flashback from the 90s fashion.

The super-soft sweater is making a comeback.

Chenille jumper

Soft turtle neck from H&M for £19.99

Whilst it might not be everyone’s cup of tea (and does remind me of jumpers my brother used to wear), the comfort you get from slipping on one of these babies is undeniable.

Oversized numbers

Whether yours or your husband’s, putting on a massive jumper or hoodie brings instant comfort.

But you can’t really go out in it.

Luckily for us, giant oversized jumpers are a trend in their own right.

Depending on what you go for, these can also double up as dresses too.

This oversized chunky knit jumper is a steal from Asda at just £18.

Classic long cardigan

Another one making a return year after year is the classic long cardi.

Crossing between knitwear or outerwear (especially handy for nipping out on the school run) a long chunky knit is a firm favourite given its versatility both inside and outdoors.

Long grey cardi from Very £40


Slogan knitwear

We’ve seen this trend in t-shirts throughout the summer months, but slogans are now making their way into winter.

Whether it’s intarsia (a knitting technique used to create patterns with multiple colours) or adorned with applique, this trend helps you make a statement.

Even if you just go for a festive design!

Novelty knit from Matalan only £15

I must say winter is one of my favorite seasons and these are lovely knitwear – it looks so snug and comfy. Although we entering summer in South Africa, I can’t wait to see what is on offer with the winter trends which normally come out in Feb.#StayClassyMama


Those are lovely. Here in South Africa our days are averaging around 30 degrees so I’m not really in a ‘knitwear’ frame of mind right now. lol
Miss the cold Christmas though.

Mummy here and there
