Oh winter—how we adore you and your woolly ways. Granted, summer is the more popular season, but the fashun is just so much better after June 1st rolls around. From chunky cable to kitten-soft cashmere, cropped and quirky to oversized hobo-meets-Olsen-twin, knitwear is our cold weather currency. 

Here are 8 of the best cosy knits to rock as the mercury drops—best worn while sipping on a hot chocolate. 

#1 Fringe Benefits

The perfect chunky knit in a neutral mossy green (as close to colour as some of us will tread), the fringing on this VIKTORIA + WOODS sweater takes it from almost-drab to extra-fab.

#2 Blue Lagoon

This textured, hip-length sweater has a dash of geek chic about it that we kinda dig. Pair with specs and treadlie.

#3 Art Class

A chic statement sweater that will see you through ‘til spring.

#4 All-Round Awesomeness

Gah. What's not to love? The perfect shade of dove grey, the mid-thigh fall, the lightweight cotton weave, and the pretty plait details… gimme!

#5 Black Attack

THE perfect winter cardi for work to weekend from the legends at Acne. Black, slouchy, mohair perfection.

#6 Fisherman’s Friend

bassike have an epic knit selection this season, including this fab ribbed turtle neck.  Love the long hemline, the slouchy fit and the black trim. We’ll be making this our weekend go-to.

#7 Marry Me, Cashmere

When it comes to keeping out the chill while avoiding Michelin-man layers, cashmere is King (Queen?), and we would happily bow down to this Jac+Jack khaki turtle neck. Perfect for luxe lounging.

#8 Berry Nice

Pair this light-weight berry knit with black leather (pants or biker, not both—sheesh) for a winter date night look that won’t free your t*ts off.
