Stay warm with your favourite knitwear. (Pic: Pexel Stock)

There’s nothing that says winter more than being wrapped in a fluffy blanket, curled up in front of a crackling fire and reading your favourite book or watching a movie. 

At some point you will need that comfort zone and head out into the cold and this is where knitwear comes in handy.

A light-weight knit is ideal to wear underneath a coat while a long chunky piece is great worn on it’s own with leggings and a pair of boots. Knits include cardigans in different lengths and dresses.

Our top 5 favourite items:

Embellished Knit from MRP (R249.99): This one is great for a night out because of the sequence detail. 

Wrap Front Cardigan from Country Road (R3,199.00): In luxurious cashmere yarn this wrap can be worn two ways; tied to the front or wrapped around and tied to the back. 

Pom-pom pullover from Witchery (R798.99): Don’t let the seriousness of the colour fool you. The small pom-poms add a playful touch to what could be a formal piece.

Asymmetric Star Knit by Witchery (R1,099.00): A balance between chic and effortlessly cool, this star print knit brings a youthful edge. Sitting off one shoulder, this piece looks great worn with jeans or tapered trousers. We love how the metallic threads make the stars sparkle.

Faux Fur Cardigan from David Jones Classic (R699.00): Layer up in this wardrobe must-have: a long sleeve cardigan, made from soft knit for comfort, featuring a removable faux fur collar and classic finishes for timeless flair.
