Winter 2018: The Best Knitwear

These are the kind of woven wonders you won’t find in your grandma’s closet.

You’ll probably agree that nestling up on the sofa with a soothing hot drink, a good book and a comfy sweater is part of what makes winter a special season. And thankfully, with top designers making cosy knitwear a key element on the autumn/winter catwalks and giving it a modern twist, we can wear those beloved heartening wonders without crimping on style.

Some of the biggest trends included cable knits, polo necks, striped and oversized styles. And whether you prefer minimalistic, embellished with fur, statement sleeves or intarsia knitted motifs, there’s a world of choice.  With fibres like mohair, alpaca and the ultimately luxurious soft and silky cashmere, these best designer and high street knits allow you to get snuggly while looking chic and fashionable.
