As you know knit is a major trend from the catwalk for Fall and Winter this year. This style reminds of a simpler time, when knit wasn’t just a trend… it was a way of life. In the 70’s there weren’t things like smart phones or the internet to take up so much of their time like we have now, so they had to find other ways to keep busy, one of those things was kitting. This pass time spread like a fever and soon they had more knit styles than what was good for them – the entire family in head-to-toe in matching knit outfits, can you imagine?
This year, it is not as extreme but the head-to-toe knit looks have definitely made their comeback (sans the far-out color schemes). We have seen neutral color pallets from Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Céline, and The Row all worked in with sleek shoes to bring out the lines and shape of the knitwear, which helps from getting lost in a sea of yarn. Polished and sculptural accessories will help if you fear you might look like a couch-potato with this style. It is easy to wear and endlessly comfortable… just think about how much you love your favorite oversized sweater. So will you give it a try when it starts to get cold?
