Knitwear Styles
for Women

Women’s knitwear comes in a vast array of versatile styles, chic cuts and vibrant colours. It’s a must for any stylish woman’s wardrobe. It’s great for layering in winter, and makes the perfect addition to any outfit.


Women's Cardigan Styles

A cardigan is a knitted jumper that opens at the front and can be fastened close with buttons or a waist belt.

Cardigans come in many styles, so there is sure to be one that works for your outfit. An oversized cardi looks great on all shapes and sizes. Cinch it in with a waist belt.

Cashmere cardigans are great for a busy day at the office, while a longer cardigan, also known as a coatigan is perfect for chilly nature walks.

HOW TO STYLE A CARDIGAN: Wear a cardigan under your winter coat for extra insulation when out and about. Or over a summery, floral dress for a lightweight jacket option.


Knitted jumpers come in many styles, but are generally defined as having long sleeves and covers the torso. Popular knit jumper styles include:


Oversized Jumpers

Oversized knitted jumpers can be a lot more stylish than the ones you see in the op shop. Intricate cable knits make these woollen jumpers a wardrobe must all year round. Neutral colours make it easier to coordinate your outfits, and will stay in fashion for longer.

HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED JUMPER: Pair your oversized jumper with skinny jeans and knee-high boots for a chic casual look.



A knitted sweater is not only chic, but it’s also comfortable. Keep warm in winter, and look good all year round. Wool is easily dyed, which means sweaters come in vivid colours you’re sure to love.

HOW TO STYLE A SWEATER: Sweaters are great work or weekend attire. Pair a sweater with a pair of jeans for a cool, casual look, or wear it with a pencil skirt for perfect workwear.


Turtleneck Knits

Turtleneck tops look smart and stylish; that’s why they’re forever in fashion! From a so Frenchy, so chic vibe, or preppy fashion, turtleneck or roll neck tops are a wardrobe must have.

HOW TO STYLE A TURTLENECK KNIT: Pair a turtleneck with a trench coat for a cool retro look. Roll neck knits look great when worn with layered clothing. Wear your turtleneck with a scarf and cardigan for cosy chic.


Knitted Dress Styles

Tunic knits and sweater dresses are wardrobe staples. Tunics are long, loose tops, often sleeveless that can be worn as tops over pants, or as a dress over some leggings.

Sweater dresses are just like your average sweater just longer so that it reaches your knees. Whatever your size or shape, a tunic or sweater dress is a versatile addition to your wardrobe.

Perfect from home to office, they’re stylish enough to wear out, while being comfortable enough to curl up on the sofa with a good book and a hot chocolate.

HOW TO STYLE KNIT DRESSES: Your tunic top will make for the perfect office outfit when combined with some tailored pants and a cashmere cardi. A sweater dress looks cosy cute with a pair of wool stockings and some leather boots.


Knitted Accessories


You can’t go past a good woollen scarf or shawl. It’s the ultimate winter accessory, which is why you’ll need a rainbow’s worth to coordinate with every outfit!


Keep your feet warm in winter with a toasty pair of woollen socks. Knitted socks can be worn for practical reasons or to add a bit of pizazz to your outfit. Thigh-high socks will let you keep warm in a skirt during those chilly winter days, as well as looking chic.


Keep your head warm with a stylish wool hat. A colourful beanie can be the perfect remedy to a miserable day. Or try a wool felt hat for a more chic look.

HOW TO STYLE KNITTED ACCESSORIES: A colourful knitted scarf is a great way to brighten up your winter wardrobe. Try jewel-toned knitted scarves and hats for a gorgeous, regal winter look.


Types of Knits

Knitwear comes in all sorts of designs and knits. Cable knits are often used to make braided designs. There are braids using a single cable all the way up to seven. The five-cable braid is referred to as the Celtic princess braid.

Ribbing is also used to create interesting textures. There are four basic stitches, knit stitch, purl stitch, missed stitch and tuck stitch. At least one of these stitches are used in all knit fabrics.

Chunky knits are all the rage at the moment, and use a range of knits to create cosy masterpieces.
