Of all fashion items I think knitwear is my favourite. Cozy, comfortable and easy to wear. A fine sweater can elevate a pair of basic jeans and a chunky sweater can complement your leggings (or jeggings). What’s not to like. Added to which the majority of knitwear can be washed.
Don’t be afraid to match casual with smart. A fine weight sweater can look great with jeans as can a chunky piece of knitwear (as above) look good with a tailored skirt.
Whatever your price bracket there are so many lovely knitwear pieces around at the moment. If you are a colour person then check out some of the bright colours at the moment.
If you like chunky knits then you will probaly be wearing a T-shirt or vest underneath, therefore there is no reason to overwash the garment. Even the best quality knitwear doesn’t take kindly to too much washing.
