We all almost come to the time when the evenings become cool and rather windy. And certainly everyone wants to wear something warm and trendy at the same time. One of the most comfortable and popular trend of the upcoming season is knits. What is the best thing in it? Certainly, cozying up in warm and soft sweaters.

Creating a trendy look

Lightweight knits which are made of cotton, wool and cashmere are wonderful pieces for the layering this season. Many famous fashion designers have created wonderful wool pieces like dresses, tops and skirts. Also we have seen woolen onesies, relaxed cardigans and beautiful slouchy crewnecks on the runway shows. They all have had interesting textures and prints, like sport logos and animal prints. So, this fall you will feel yourself warm and comfy. How to create your own outfits to look trendy and fashionable? Opt for relaxed pieces but add some fitted clothes to temper the giant styles. You can wear knitted cardigans and finish the look with high heels or oxford shoes. It can add some polish to the outfit. A large knitted top can be paired with a stylish pencil skirt or skinny jeans.

Also earthy and autumn colours like olive, all shades of blue and green, orange and pink are popular this season. If you like neutrals, opt for pink shades. They look perfect in cold seasons.
