Well, it’s hard to deny that the colder days are on their way. But the good news is that it’s sweater weather again, which gets me super excited! I mean, who doesn’t love a super soft cardigan or a chunky sweater? Since there are so many great options out there I thought I’d sum up my favorite knitwear brands for you. From basic knits to statement pieces for all budgets, here is my ultimate Fall Knitwear Guide:
Let’s start with my absolute favorite high-street brand when it comes to amazing knitwear: &Otherstories. I can’t even count how many sweaters, turtlenecks and Cardigans I own and I love every single piece. They have an amazing quality but are also really affordable. Most of the designs are slightly oversized, which makes them sooo good! Highly recommended! My current favorite is the Beige Cropped Cardigan from this post but also might get this one.
Another budget-friendly favorite of mine is Edited. I’ve been working with the german brand for many years now and therefore tested lots of knits. That’s why I can truthfully say that they’ve got pretty amazing knitwear. If you’re searching for more trendy sweaters and cardigans, this will be your destination. My favorite is this Cardigan from last year but I’ve spotted some great alternatives right now:
Next up: Selected Femme. Whoever prefers simple knits with great quality for a reasonable price should take a look at the Scandi brand. Found some of my favorite alpaca and mohair sweaters there, which are still in great shape…
Last but not least: I’ll always like to take a look at Mango and Topshop, if I’m in the mood for statement pieces. Topshop Boutique for example might be a bit more expensive but the quality is better than the one from Mango. But if you’re in the mood for something trendy you might be lucky at Mango for sure.
Most of you guys might know me by now. So you’d also know that I’d always invest in one high-quality sweater rather than in 3 semi-fitting knits that won’t survive a season. But unfortunately these Premium knits come with quite a price tag. My recommendation would be taking a look at Vestiaire Collective – I found some great sweaters there! Here are my other favorite shopping destinations for premium knitwear:
My two absolute knitwear heros are Closed and Acne Studios. I’m wearing the oversized V-Neck Sweater from Closed in this post but I’m also absolutely obsessed with the grey cashmere cardigan. So good! I also own a bunch of other pieces from the german brand and I can’t praise the impeccable quality enough! Same goes to Acne Studios, my all-time favorite dealer for basics, knits and denim. The Raya Cardigan for example is so soft, that I even bought a second one. And the cashmere sweaters are just like wearing a cloud. If you want to invest in one good sweater, make it this one!
If you’re opting for super luxe knitwear, there’s no way around The Row and Céline, of course. To be honest, I don’t own knits from these brands but I have a lot of colleagues who swear by the quality (which I would expect given the price tag!). However, I might or might not get a little touchy whenever I’m in a Céline store – and the knits truly feel like heaven!
Coming back to more affordable premium knits I can also recommend Joseph (super soft classics) and Isabel Marant (more fashionable pieces). Both brands offer wonderful, timeless pieces that are worth an investment. And the quality is superb.
Last but not least 2 rather unknown alternatives: The greek manufacturer Mumshandmade and the german cashmere brands Iris von Arnim and 81hours. All three pay a lot of attention to quality and detail which will guarantee a long-lasting relationship with your favorite knit.
So that’s it for now – I hope you’ve found your favorite pieces that’ll take you through the colder days!
