Basic Knits A/W 2022

zara striped knit

You know what’s sexy? Layers.

Ok, ok ‘FRIENDS’ quote aside layers are pretty great. They add much needed warmth but also interest to winter looks- colour, texture, prints! So many combo options(…speaking of which, check out my ebook for a guide to mixing colours).

Today’s round up is all about the basic knit, those layers you can easily pair under blazers/coats (printed and block coloured), leggings and jeans.


  • Don’t be shy to size up! Options like 1, 3, 10, 12 14 all have a straight cut that would look effortlessly stylish worn loose and baggy over leggings or jeans. Option 3 has been my go-to for years and I have nearly every colour!
  • Check the fabric, especially for fitted options. Breathable fabrics are your best friend when it’s right against your skin. Look for blends to keep things affordable (natural fibres like wool/cotton/cashmere mixed with poly/acrylic/viscose/nylon)
  • Keep an eye on length, even for the oversized look! Unless tunic style length is what you’re going for, hemlines that hit 1/2-3/4 down your zipper will help balance the volume and not drown you in fabric.
