Knitwear: French Connection

Knitwear trends for AW13 – cosiness coupled with glamour.

While some materials such as denim and leather are never out of fashion, wool ebbs and flows from year to year. On the catwalks last year knitwear had taken a bit of a back seat, but the good news is that this winter, sweaters, jumpers & cardigans are going to be ubiquitous. The trends for autumn and winter 2013-14 include a collaboration between warmth and cosiness coupled with glamour. The fashion houses have gone overboard getting sweaters back into fashion; just look at the collections of Burberry, Pringle, or Vivienne Westwood.

An up coming trend in knitwear is as many garish glammed-up patterns, images and colours you can find, it’s all about saying this is wool and I want to shout it out loud! It may seem a bit odd parading knitwear during the warmer months but throw on an over sized boyfriend sweater for those cooler evenings out or team a knitted cape with leather skinny trousers a la Kick Ass actress Chloe Moretz, below. If neutral knits are what you’re after then French Connection (main pic) have some simple flattering shapes enhanced with zips, animals and shiny motifs.
