Knitwear Trends For Autumn 2017

It’s time to face the fact that the days are getting shorter, the weather is getting cooler and winter is actually not that far away. Time to start thinking about keeping warm and investing in some key knitwear pieces!

But which styles are going to ensure that you stay looking stylish and on-trend this autumn?

Luckily for you, we have compiled together some of the best knitwear options which you need to have in your wardrobe.


Cable Knit

A classic for many years, cable knitwear is going to be big for 2017 once again.

And we are so happy about it – cable knit sweaters and dresses are so easy to wear and look amazing on everyone.

Plus, we may have some cable knit jumpers already in our wardrobe from previous seasons – bonus.

When deciding which cable knitwear item to buy, opt for a chunky knit and a slightly oversized style for a laid-back stylish vibe.

Pair a cable knit jumper with a leather skirt and tights, or even just some jeans and boots.

Turtle Neck

Everyone loves a good turtle neck.

Not only do they look oh-so chic, they also keep you nice and toasty and stop any cold draughts from ruining your vibes.

Whether you opt for a form fitting jumper like Helen above, or a more chunky oversized knit is up to you.

You can also get some gorgeous jumper dresses featuring the all important turtle neck.

All things red are big news for Autumn 2017.

Red knitwear has been seen all over the catwalks, with many big name designers such as Roskanda and Valentino featuring it on their runways.

Red is the perfect colour for autumn anyway, due to its warmth and versatility.

Make sure the jumper takes centre stage in the outfit by teaming it with items which tone it down, such as a pair of jeans or a plain skirt.


Glitter is always popular when the year progresses, and this year is no different.

Designers such as Saint Laurent, Chanel and Christopher Kane have all featured glittery knitwear pieces in their AW17 collections.

Look out for glitter jumper dresses which would be fab for parties.

Also, keep an eye out for glitter jumpers and pair them with leather trousers for an evening out.


It is time to raid your parent’s wardrobes and the vintage shops, as 1970s style knitwear is going to be big for AW17.

Think yellow, brown and orange colour schemes. retro patterns such as paisley and oversized cardigans.

Team with a tan satchel bag and some smokey eye make up.

Cinched Waists

You will also see a lot of belted and corsetted knitwear this coming season.

So many designers are cinching in baggy jumpers and dresses with either really wide corset belts or a simple leather chunky belt to create feminine silhouettes.
