WINTER KNIT 101
- Voluminousness is the new knit \ buy oversized to emphasise.
- Chunkier knits need careful shopping \ unless you’re slim as a reed, try first with skinny draped layers to counter their unflattering effect.
- Natural, pure yarn knits (eg. wool, cashmere) are finest, softest and most resilient \ blends are nearly as good poly-mixtures invariably not.
- Mind the prickle \ check by rubbing gently against your bare neck, or plan to always slip on a silky under-layer before your itchy knit.
LOOK WHAT I FOUND
Sifted from David Jones’ half-yearly clearance, this rather lovely, nicely priced – $179, down from $279 – rollneck cable knit by Trenery is modelled by Jesinta Franklin.
Country Road’s Woolmark poncho knit $179, drops lavishly to mid-thigh with warm, raglan volume across the shoulders and extra-long ribbed cuffs stretchable to freezing fingers. Worn here with Grid scarf, $99.95, and Katie boots, $299.
