From oversized jumpers to miniskirts, knitwear is the hottest - and certainly the snuggest - trend right now. Even those bright jumpers from the 80s have enjoyed something of a style renaissance with Jenny Kee making an appearance at the recent Australian Fashion Week.
So whether you prefer handmade-style or couture Cashmere, it's time to join the new style knitting club. Show off your knit-wit potential and go wild for woollies.
With the winter bulge beckoning, here's one knitwear look you won't want to miss.
Ticking the box for the androgynous and minimalist trends, an oversized knit is not only ideal for layering, but it also disguises unwanted bellies too.
Try a sweater or long-line cardigan in a size that looks like you've strayed into your other half's side of the wardrobe. You could even experiment by delving into the menswear departments for the authentic option.
The trick with boy-shaped knits is to keep your bottom half fitted, so leggings, skinny jeans or skirt with tights. Nobody wants to look like they're dressed head-to-toe in a giant's clothing.
The perfect antidote to dark winter nights, a knit so bright you'll practically glow in the dark is a must.
Fashioned from this season's block colour trend, a jewel-hued jumper will have you dazzling through the colder season. Not just reserved for eveningwear, pick out a luxurious knit in an opulent shade of amethyst, ruby, sapphire or emerald.
For a more outgoing option, try a sunny citrus shade, like orange, lime or yellow, that will ease you right through to spring. These neon-esque brights will really pop against a drab winter wardrobe.
Grab your tweeds and plaids, a cosy countryside knit is the perfect accompaniment to the heritage trend.
Made for the classic dresser who wants a knit that will last, look for chunky cable-knit numbers in timeless neutral hues of camel, cream or navy.
If you really want to embrace the quintessential British look, try a plaid pullover or argyle knit - no golf clubs necessary.
Make your heritage knit the main fashion focus by paring down the rest of your ensemble with a smart black skirt or tailored trousers.
THE COLOURFUL EIGHTIES
After a 31-year hiatus, Jenny Kee is back and she hasn't lost her love for colour or her passion for the Australian bush, with her creations bursting with vividness, and flowing with romance.
The 65-year-old artist and designer was at the recent Australian Fashion Week, working with the young Aussie duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales of Romance was Born for this collection, and she loves being back.
Kee is one of Australia's most famous designers and she wowed young fashionistas and brought tears to the eyes of her older fans when she stepped back into the limelight.
So hunt through your mother's wardrobe or look in the vintage shops for a colourful Kee knit - team it with a pair of leggings and it's perfect snuggly weekend wear.
If a baggy jumper somehow feels a little too casual, even trussed up with pearls, go back in time to this season's Forties vibe.
The decade was big news on the runways for winter and the retro look is set to continue for next spring too.
Go for a ready-made Forties knit via a classic matching twin set - elegance personified. And create your own vintage appeal by emphasising the waist with a fitted long-line button-up cardigan and skinny belt. A body-skimming pencil skirt will really add the Forties finishing touch.
Those head-over-heels with all things woolly can go mad with natty knit maximalism.
Knitwear may have traditionally been confined to jumpers, cardigans and scarves but now there's a whole style spectrum on offer: coats, dresses, chunky tights, knitted skirts, arm warmers, leg warmers and even winter boots complete with cosy cuffs.
For the ultimate in fashion kudos, layer them all up at the same time for a top-to-toe knit takeover. Just ensure you mix up different colours and wool types for the most fashionable knit-wit look.
