Not Your Average Knitwear

Pullovers, cardigans, and dresses – these statement sweater knits will spice up your wardrobe this fall and winter.

I know it’s only October, but we had our first cold day on Sunday after so many balmy idyllic fall days and now I’m full-throttle in sweater mode (I have to cheer myself up somehow). Not to mention parts of Utah and the west are already getting snow! No thanks on that one. While I’m satisfied with my small collection of classic knits, I’m always on the prowl for some unique statement pieces like this one that I’ve been swooning over for months! It’s all about balance; a few classic cuts and colors, a few fabulous fair-isles, and maybe some sparkle here or there. Not just any sweater will do though! This is a very high involvement purchase for me – but then again literally everything is, so an unbelievable amount of work goes into the research process before I finally pull the trigger and hand over my hard earned cash (scroll down for exhibit A). As we live in the northernmost southern state, we do unfortunately get really cold winters, so natural fibers like organic cotton, and woolens are a must for keeping warm. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me

My favorite way to spice up gray winter days and the endless parade of functional dressing in leggings, jeans, and long sleeved tops is by popping on a pretty sweater. I would even go as far as to say my unique knits are some of my most prized possessions. This is not your average knitwear, and if you haven’t added at least one fun sweater to your wardrobe, you’re missing out on a really simple hack to take your jeans or dresses to the next level! I’ve already been browsing my favorite brands who never fail to produce some of the most unique items and am delighted to share a few of said items with you now; from pullover sweaters, to cardigans, to dresses I’ve got you covered!

Not Your Average Knitwear

Not your average argyle knit!

The cardigan of the season! Real wool, so it will keep you so toasty warm – the cropped length is so elegant with dresses and skirts!

Wool for the win! Comes in burgundy and royal blue, as well as children’s sizing, too.

Perfect for layering, and a timeless floral print.

A little bit of trendy, a little bit of vintage-throwback style; I give you the sweater vest!

Wishlist item for the longest time!!!

Unique mauve color, beautiful cable knit, wool – a rare find and at a great price for it!

This print! Wear over any of the colors in this piece for an instant pop of interest.

Ski chalet vibes all day. Also comes in turqoise.

Beautiful take on a classic style – these shorter lengths are 1950s vibes with skirts and dresses!

Classic prep, but make it fashion.

Talk about making your own sunshine! I’m predicting lots of coral hues for 2022!

This ruffle takes this classic knit to the next level, then the one after that.

Block-prints are life and this neutral palette would contrast beautifully with a myriad of bold colors!

The collar, the v-neck, the belt, the sleeves – not your average knit dress!

I can’t imagine this would be unflattering on anyone – so elegant, so unique!

It’s flannel, so different but same, and who doesn’t love blackwatch tartan?

This may look pretty average but you don’t know how hard it is to find a knit dress that isn’t bodycon! For it’s perfect loose from the waist down flared skirt, this merino wool dress is truly a unique find!

xo, Mia
