Dramatic knitted maxi dresses, colourful roll necks and chunky ribbed knit co-ords set the tone for her this AW21. Forget dainty and cute, this season it’s all about oversized styles that command attention – think floor-skimming skirt lengths, heavyset yarns and one-size-too-big fits. Colour-wise knitwear for her is drawing two clear lines in the sand with primary pops of red, yellow and green squaring up to seasonal shades of aubergine, latte and slate. Embrace the appetite for look-at-me hues in bold block colours or sidestep brights altogether, in favour of down to earth autumnal tones that blend together beautifully.
Colour is key for him this season and nowhere is this easier to channel than with knitwear in AW21’s essential trends. From syrupy golden brown hues (think ‘70s sepia vibes) to eye-popping pillar box red, knits in these two colours are his fast track pass to on-trend style when the cold sets in. Elsewhere, print and pattern (noticeably absent from the womenswear runaways) is coming through in force for him, with the graphic print sweater the hero knitwear piece of the season. The key to getting this right relies on choosing bold designs in bright contrasting colours, so shelve the shyness as this look is all about making a statement.
