Fashion Jobs – 5 Cold Weather Statement Knits

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadaknit inspo

Oftentimes, we rummage through our closet looking for that one top to go with this particular outfit we had in mind for a girls night out to find out it doesn’t even exist. It’s frustrating that in the midst of winter you don’t have anything wearable for a night out or an event. You would think living in Canada would mean we would be on top of the cold weather essentials, but my excuse is we are so accustomed to hibernating that a night out in January seems far-fetched. In worst cases, we take that summer going out top and throw a cardigan over it, but it’s just not the same. Knits play a huge part in our wardrobe and sometimes we get carried away with the casual pullovers and cardigans, we end up having a slim to none selection for the days we want to look put together. Here is a list of our top statement knits to inspire your next attempt to brave the cold.

The Turtleneck
Not only do I love a turtleneck sweater, but I am instantly attracted to cable knits especially in a bright hue. It brightens your mood and your outfit and it’s so cozy for those winter days. Pair this with a high waist skirt for the office or a pair of leather pants for a night out.

The Sweater Dress
We tend to drift away from the creams, whites, and beiges because winter is meant for black and light black, but there is something soft and feminine when wearing white in the winter months. A sweater dress is a great go to when wanting to be cozy yet chic and effortless. Paired with a long coat and knee-high boots, who said you couldn’t get ready in ten minutes?

Girls Night Out
Girl’s night out is always a struggle during these times. It’s cold, you have nothing to wear and you rather just Netflix and chill then get all dolled up. This affordable sexy piece from Zara is fun and flirty and will look killer over a pair of jeans. It’s simple but we guarantee will turn a few heads.

All Wrapped Up
A wrap sweater is the perfect all year round staple. It shows off all your curves, very feminine, and has the versatility to be worn according to your style. From skirts to pants, the wrap is a closet must have and looks great on its own or layered over a long collar shirt.

Shoulder Show
We have seen the off the shoulder top but an off the shoulder sweater is just oh so elegant. Great for tucking into a skirt for a sophisticated work event, this classy look is wintertime chic all around. Throw on some statement earrings and a fabulous clutch to make the ultimate statement.
