Knitwear styles to have in your winter wardrobe

Knitwear styles to have in your winter wardrobe. When it comes to the cold winter weather, you need the right wardrobe to get through it. Think knitwear.

But not all knits were created equal. For every style that works, there are others that are ready to take your style down to zero.

We’ve compiled a list of the must-have knit options so you can make light work of hunkering down for the cold days ahead.

The Roll Neck

Cold necks are a thing of the past when you wear a roll neck. For a retro look, wear yours over t-shirts and look for jewel tones. A roll neck is not only functional, but pairs well with just about anything in your wardrobe. Go casual for the weekend by teaming with slim-fit jeans and trainers.

Cable Knit

Often associated with fishermen on choppy seas, the cable knit jumper can make a simple outfit look stylish. Thanks to the sheer volume of choice, this versatile knit works with all ages and styles.

Durable and insulating, a cable knit makes a smart winter wardrobe investment. Styling one is easy too. Yours can be chucked on with jeans or trousers or dressed up with a shirt and tailored trousers.


A cardigan tends to look generic in the wrong hands but don’t be afraid to wear one. A camel shawl collar cardigan will pair well with a denim shirt, slim white jeans and black boots. It will also torpedo the notion that men can’t wear lighter colours during winter.

Don’t discount thinner cardigans as they can work with simple outfits. Keep things simple by wearing yours with white long-sleeve tops with jeans or pleated trousers.

Graphic Knit

A graphic knit is for those of you who like to experiment with their style. Attention-seeking knits have never looked so good, with patterns, motifs and slogans all trending.

The golden rule for wearing a graphic knit? Keep the rest of your outfit simple. Black is always a good choice. Wearing black jeans, boots and a leather jacket will let your knit speak for itself.

Oversized Jumper

Bigger is always better for keeping you warm during winter and that’s why you need an oversized jumper. The best ones feel clearly designed. Look for shoulder seams that are lower than regular knits, and hems that drop but retain their shape.

Use your oversized jumper for experimental winter layering. Wear a roll neck underneath or cropped jacket over the top. For a relaxed look, wear your oversized knit with contrasting slim jeans.

Here at we always promote fashion sustainability. Where possible, please exchange your clothing with others to increase their longevity which ensures they do not go towards landfill which is bad for the environment.

Always check out how and where your clothes, beauty products and accessories are made before purchase to ensure they are not only ethically produced but environmentally friendly.

We can all play our part and make the difference to working towards a better and cleaner fashion environment here in Ireland.
