Knitwear can be traced back to the early 1900s, when the use of pullovers in a new range of jersey suits marked a turning point for the now classic apparel! This early success was bolstered by the sports wear market, as knitwear became the popular garment of choice for leisure pursuits; lending itself willingly to carry various design patterns and levels of warmth depending on the activity and desired look. Later on body skimming knitwear designs were used to flaunt the figures of 1940s movie sirens, taking on a colourful patterned appearance in line with the groovy sixties before being whisked into the realms of high fashion in the 1980s, where knitted turtlenecks offset by smart angular tailoring and oversized jumpers and leggings reigned king!
Nowadays the term knitwear encompasses a huge range of garment styles and natures of the materials used to construct them. A fantastically versatile and useful wardrobe staple, knitwear serves you all year round in the form of both thick woolly winter jumpers and thinner summer cover ups; perfect for long stretched out evenings spent outside. Details can be defined in knitwear through the type of knit or patterns and motifs. Fine knit items are great for layering; light cardigans or jumpers offering other colours and textures to your look, whereas cable or chunky knits will see you through the winter season, great for keeping you both cosy and looking good. Oversize is in, so team a big woolly jumper with skinny jeans for a look that is effortless slouchy cool.
