Sweater weather is here and we couldn’t be more excited. Knitwear is the easiest way to add texture and dimension to an outfit. Style expert, Peter Papapetrou gives us a lesson on how to choose the best-knit wear and how to style them like a pro. From wideband knots to blanket scarves, scroll on to shop the looks below.

Wideband Knots

The wide band knit gives the illusion of volume from the outside, but inside the sweater is more of a smoother material, so there’s no weight to it. The great part about this knitting style is that it holds its structure very well, so you don’t have to worry about stretching. The key is to go for a softer cut rather than a slimmer fit., that way you can wear it with other layers underneath, like a turtleneck or a collared shirt.

Fine Gauge Knits

This kind of knit is made from super fine weave, making it the perfect second layer to keep you warm. Plus, it's stitched in a way that won’t make it itchy, and the structured ribbing will never fade away. TIP: Make sure to air dry this type of material so it lasts longer in your closet.

Blanket Knits


A blanket scarf is the easiest way to make any basic outfit look stylish. This type of knitting adds texture without the heaviness that many scarves have. Look for a mixture of wool and nylon for that extra stretch and give. It’s a great accessory to bring along on your fall and winter outdoor adventures to keep you warm.
