Yippee! It’s time for new pullovers The 4 biggest pullover trends for A/W 19/20

November 10, 2019

Winter lovers, rejoice, it’s time for new pullovers, yippee!

Who doesn’t love cosy and cuddly knitwear? Cashmere pullovers, oversized cable knits, ribbed turtle necks; so many options, so little space left in the closet… To narrow down your wish-list, we pinpointed the four biggest pullover trends we’ve spotted on the catwalks and in the streets of the most fashionable cities this season. The right sweater can be a real game-changer in your wardrobe; it updates any outfit, making it look on-trend, chic and more expensive, so it’s worth investing in some new pullovers.

Beige is the number one colour for fall, and camel, the chicest hue. One of the most classic colours, it can be worn by itself, in a camel-on-camel look, or paired with basically any colour! It looks fabulous with purple, turquoise, navy, orange, avocado green, black, and so many more. Max Mara, Prada and Ralph Lauren are some of the designers using this classy tone for winter 19/20.

From Ganni to Chanel, most fashion labels presented colourful striped pullovers for this season, and our favourite Danish Instagrammers, like Jeanette Madsen, show us how to brighten up winter looks with these joyful sweaters.

Fair Isle

These pullovers take their name from the Fair Isle in Shetland, Scotland, where they originated. The typical heritage knitwear was very trendy in the ’70s and ’80s but later became the synonym of lousy taste and nerdiness. Because we are still obsessing with fashion from the ’80s, it is no surprise they made a comeback on the runways of Celine, Chanel and Altuzzara. Fashion-savvy girls like Pernille Teisbaek and Caroline de Maigret are wearing the Fairisle knitwear paired with leather shorts, skirts and tailored pants. Thora Valdimars wore hers tucked in a denim mini-skirt to balance the volume of the chunky knitwear.

Animal Print

It’s a jungle out there. Coats, bags, boots and now, pullovers too, come in all types of animal prints and we love it! Pair your animal-printed sweater with beige or black tailored pants for a chic office outfit or with jeans for a relaxed look. For the more adventurous, you can mix patterns; wear animal print pullovers with checked trousers, for example, and get fashion points with the modern but elegant look.

Keep warm and stylish 😉
