Step up your knitwear game with versatile pieces that will take you from day to night.

The autumn/winter season is all about great knitwear. Whether it’s sophisticated rollnecks, chunky oversized sweaters, or wear-with-anything cashmere, knits are the pragmatic cool weather wardrobe staple. Still, while knitwear is practical, it also carries serious sartorial chops.

This season is chocked-full of elevated takes on knitwear essentials, thanks to clever updates from some of the industry’s buzziest designers. We saw this on the runway during the autumn winter 2024 season. At Alexander McQueen, newly installed creative director Seán McGirr showed oversized statement sweaters in cobalt blue with Noughties-style cowl neck detailing. At Fendi there were deconstructed cable knits and shrunken vests. And at Chanel Virginia Viard showed chic striped cardigans inspired by Deauville, the French seaside resort town where Coco Chanel started her career selling hats.

If you’re looking for a classic investment, you’ll wear for seasons to come, the trusted cable knit should be added to your wish list. Seed and Witchery have great iterations in classic hues of camel, navy, and black. This versatile style can be layered over tailored trousers, leggings, or—in the spirit of trans-seasonal dressing—your favourite printed summer dress, just add tights and lace-up boots.

The Cardigan

Integrating elevated knitwear into your wardrobe this season is a cinch. Acne Studios distressed asymmetrical cardigans from the brand’s latest runway show, available in off-white and rust brown, are our pick for the knitwear It-piece of the season. Wear yours with high-rise, slim leg jeans, a heeled ankle boot, and your favourite winter coat (extra points for styling with Acne’s trends new multipocketed handbag).
