Though chilly weather has long passed (it was never really here, anyways, at least in Malaysia), many people still enjoy wearing thick layers of sweaters, not only for the comfort of the material, but also for the versatility and variety of designs available in knitwear.
One of the reasons knitwear has become increasingly popular among celebrities and fashionistas is the influence of TikTok (unsurprisingly). Recently, more and more fashion influencers have been sharing their latest crochet creations on social media, which prompted many users to take up crocheting as a hobby and design their own crochet clothing! It’s pretty clear that knitwear is here to stay in 2022 – so here are 5 knitwear trends that you should look out for!
Gradient Knits/ Space Dyed Knits
Gradient space knits are the polar opposite of warm tone colours, with myriad hues that bleed into each other, creating a hazy look to the knitwear. The technique used in their creation involves dyeing a single yarn with two or more colours that repeat throughout the yarn, resulting in each space dye looking quite different!
As an homage to the classic granny crochet squares, this trend is coming back stronger than ever. It’s quirky, it’s interesting, and it adds a ton of colour to your daily outfit. Also, it’s Harry Styles approved, so you know you’ll make a statement with this trend.
Crochet sets, in keeping with the SS22 trend of hyper feminine looks, provide a feminine and laid-back look that is suitable for any season. Besides being comfy AF, they also go with many different outfits!
Chunky Oversized Knits
This trend is for the girlies who love everything oversized. You’ve probably seen chunky vests and cardigans all over the internet at some point. They simply add a fashion-forward feel to your entire ensemble!
Knit Top Bras
Following the chunky and oversized knits, we’re downsizing to the most fundamental of clothing items: underwear. Though it appears to be a regular bra, the soft material hugs your figure and provides additional comfort, giving you an ultra-feminine appearance. It’s the best of both worlds: comfortable and sexy!
