As we getting closer to the winter, we like to add more layers and knitwear is our first choice obviously. But even with the curated capsule wardrobe there are certain styles of knitwear what we consider as necessity. And if you wondering what the types of knitwear you should add to your capsule wardrobe keeps scrolling to check if you have those knits in your wardrobe already or you miss something.
The Types of Knitwear You Should Add To Your Capsule Wardrobe
Big slouchy chunky sweater is one of my favourite and most worn knit. It looks great with smart trousers, slip skirt and jeans. The versatility of this knit is endless
The crewneck knitwear is the most popular style. It is easy to style for office or casually for the weekend. In the winter it’s a great piece to wear on it’s own or over button down shirt. It shouldn’t be missed in any capsule wardrobe. The crewneck merino knit makes a great base layer to wear under shirt, blazer or chunkier sweater in really cold winter.
Turtleneck knit is one of the most stylish and timeless pieces in our capsule wardrobes. It makes any outfit to stand out. Wear it with jeans or tailored trouser, under your trench coat and once you add sunglasses you will look like million dollar babe.
In the past few years cardigan gained the lost popularity. The past few years the slouchier style became popular choice of all fashionable ladies. This style is great to wear with tailored trousers to office but also with the jeans and trainers or boots for a weekend.
As I mentioned before, the oversized fit is one of my favourites fits to wear in the winter. In the oversized knit you will look effortlessly chic without putting too much effort.

Light knitwear is great to wear as a base layer or from early fall to a late spring. It nicely replace any cotton shirts with the extra warmth but without adding additional bulk. The best styles to add to your capsule wardrobe would be merino crewneck and merino turtleneck.
Knitted dresses been around for ages, but only in recent years became quite popular. As the styles changed and there is more slouchy styles available. They are a great choice of dress when the temperature falls below zero or is just slightly above the zero. Wear them with tall chunky boots and blazer to create a modern look.
