8 new season knitwear pieces that will elevate your wardrobe - introducing the 2.0 knit

Posted by for Fashion

We’ve officially hit knitwear season, it’s a special time on the fashion calendar because, more often than not, we are ready to add some cosy layers. This season it’s all about the 2.0 knit. 

We all love our existing knitwear, our classic crew neck jumpers, our chunky cardis, our roll necks and cable knits, but this season the Stylist fashion team has noticed a new knitwear trend and we’re coining it knitwear 2.0. 

It’s more trend lead and directional than the aforementioned styles, we’ve seen square neck lines, wrap styles, tank tops, even crop tops and bralets (thanks Katie Holmes). 

These knits will dress up your jeans and mules for a night out, or elevate your tailored trousers for work, without compromising on being cold or uncomfortable, cosy and chic, it’s a win-win. 

Check our fashion editor’s pick of the the best 2.0 knits here and how to style for winter.

    The knitted wrap top, like the wrap dress, has longevity in our wardrobes as it’s super versatile, and more elevated than the humble button up cardi. Wear this style with a silky midi skirt for a wintery spin on occasion wear.
