STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Knitty Gritty

Whether oversized or cropped, bright or neutral, sweaters are a fall staple that cannot be ignored. Nothing’s cozier than a nice cable-knit, and even on the runway – where comfort is so often sacrificed in the name of fashion – knits were a big hit. Designers such as Joseph, Theysken’s Theory, Tracy Reese, and even Chanel all embraced knit sweaters in their fall 2011 collections.

This Fashionista cuddles up in a chunky cable-knit for class. Pairing it with a baseball cap, cutoff jean shorts, and flats, she strikes the perfect balance between casual and chic. With a classic color combination like heather grey and faded blue denim, it’s hard to go wrong.

To replicate this look, try J. Crew’s fisherman cable-knit sweater or Topshop’s knitted aran cable jumper – both in an adorable shade of cream. For lots of options color-wise, Ralph Lauren Rugby offers the classic crewneck cable-knit in eight different hues, all equally enticing.  If you’re feeling up to, cable-knit dresses are also great for class. Both comfortable and feminine, they look great when paired with tights and boots. Topshop and Vanessa Bruno both offer cozy sweater dresses at a great price.
