Here’s one great thing about December: it’s the poster month for cozy dressing. And if you – like me – are guilty of abusing the snooze button throughout winter, you’ll relish the thought of jumping out of bed and wrapping yourself in the fashion equivalent of a duvet. Cue: wear-everywhere knits.

Until now, knitwear has been synonymous with dressing down, but thanks to the fall/winter collections of Max Mara, Lanvin, and Dior, the humble sweater has been repositioned as a staple for work, parties, and everything in-between. So forget what you think about knitwear being solely reserved for nights spent on the sofa because, here, Savoir Flair makes a case for wearing knits from desk through to dinner.

At Work

Incorporating a sweater into your usual work wardrobe is easier than it seems. Just make sure you keep the smart/casual ratio balanced by pairing your knit with a blazer, tailored pants, or an elevated shoe à la Olivia Palermo.

For Dinner

The key to nailing knitwear for the evening is opting for a slinkier shape. Swap the chunky aran knit for a finer weave with fun details like metallic threads, colorful stripes, or embellishment.

To a Party

Dubbed as a party staple for the cool girl, a turtleneck or fine knit is an effortless way to up the ante for nighttime. Pair your sweater with over-the-top earrings, metallic accessories, and a statement bag to avoid feeling underdressed.

Over the Weekend

If anyone knows how to make a tracksuit look sexy, it’s Emily Ratajkowski. Take a page out of the model’s book and choose a knitted co-ord for the weekend, pairing it with low-heeled boots to take your look from too casual to too cool.
