Many of us BA50’s want to look chic and fashionable, without sacrificing comfort. We want to be able to relax and enjoy ourselves when we are socializing without feeling restricted and confined in a too-snug outfit. If you are looking for the comfort of a sweatsuit, but the polish of a more elevated outfit, one stylish and trendy solution is to wear knitwear. This season we are seeing beautiful knit dresses, skirts, trousers, and matching sets, often in relaxed, forgiving silhouettes which suit all shapes and sizes.
If you prefer to wear neutrals, there are soft muted greys, camels and off-whites which look sophisticated and are easy to mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe. If you gravitate towards color, you will find lots of fabulous options including mustard, red and burnt orange, some with on-trend color-blocking too. Below are my top pics for knit outfits that look chic but don’t sacrifice comfort for style!
