Style & Then Some

Trend Alert: Critter Knits

Following on from the festively ‘fun’ intarsia, fair isle, alpine knit of Winter 2011 (also known as the Christmas-jumper), a quirky contender is taking its place: Critter Knits.

I can’t remember a time when you could solemnly wear animal-feature clothing to work meetings so I, for one, am excited. This trend is not to be muddled with ‘eccentric teacher-dressing’ which (for example) may feature a painted version of a Labrador pet emblazoned on a sweatshirt. No.  This look is more a nod to novelty whilst maintaining a current look.

H&M Jumper, £19.99

Burberry Brit Fox Print T-shirt, £135

Mulberry Double Tiger Motif Jumper, £395

French Connection Lady Owl Jumper, £67

J.Crew French Hen Sweater, £78.58

 See Kate Bosworth for appropriate critter-knit pairings:

Enjoy the novelty while it lasts (note the shelf life expires on Boxing day) and let’s start betting on the knit theme for Autumn/Winter 2013.
