I recently had the pleasure of working with UK mega brand Pretty Little Thing! I was given the opportunity to select a small edit from their knitwear collection to style up for you ladies. If anyone knows how to warm things up it’s the Brits. What I like about this site in particular is they have all of the major trends covered, at prices you can afford to play around with and see if they suit you. I had so much fun putting together two complete looks and it all came in at under AUD$300! Knitwear is definitely one of my wardrobe staples, they are my go-to for layering up and staying cosy. Use them to dress an outfit up or down, create a flattering shape or add texture.
Here I’ve styled a Shaggy Knitted Cardigan with a high waisted Snake Print Set to emphasise my waist and add height to my shoulders. Chunky knits, as the name suggests, have the potential to add bulk. So go for cropped styles like this one or make sure to keep them open, revealing your true size underneath.
I’ve paired this Ribbed Knitted Cardigan with Distressed Skinny Jeans and a Logo Tee for a casual, playground approved look. To starve off the nana vibes, I chose a tee with a fun print and have gone for chunky-style sneakers to keep it on trend. The cardigan creates an elongated rectangle shape which lengthens the legs and balances out wide hips. Keep what you wear on the bottom slimline, to avoid looking too slouchy.
