We can feel that winter is just around the corner. The days get darker and colder, so we’re really beginning to need our winter wardrobe. And what better way to stay warm than by wearing a piece of chunky knitwear?

Especially knitted vests and cardigans are a big trend this season. Choose one with a cable knit of a nice winter print. And if you can, buy them in an extra long version. That way you can wear them with jeans as well as leggings. Besides you can wear a small belt on top to make your look extra feminine and elegant.

Check out our photo selection to see how Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana and Marc Jacobs worked this chunky knitwear trend into their F/W2010/2011 collections.

Catwalktrend FW2010: winter knitwear

For next season D&G set the trend with their sporty, winter knitwear. They sent out jumpsuit, bodysuits, tops and turle necks with winter snowflake or reindeer print on the runway. Their models we’re heading to the après-ski and looked damn good after a day of stylishly skiing.

Though a ski suit normally is not very flattering, D&G sure made it work. They even managed to present a sheer floral skirts with a knitted sweater as one outfit, without everybody disliking it. It was one of those grunge looks, we discussed earlier.

And there were more brands celebrating the cosy winter knitwear look. Chanel, Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, Missoni and Rodarte all showed their own versions for this winter.

It’s unbelievable how these sweaters can become so popular in such a short period of time. I remember seeing my parents wearing them on photos from 25 years ago and finding them horrofic. Now a sweater a la D&G is on my musthave list for this winter.
