If you reside in the Southern Hemisphere - you know it's cold. And if you are living in the Land of the Long White Cloud - it is tino matao right now.
This is to be expected - it's winter but I also like to complain about being cold because I am an absolute wuss. You are a captive audience. This appeals to my inner whinger.
But it begs the question - What do you wear when it's cold but still want to look like a human with some sense of style?
There is one obvious item: the knit. Any incarnation will do as long as it is 2x steps away from being undeniably identified as a blanket.
The fisherman knit, the knit skirt, the roll neck knit, the knit dress, the knit coatigan - the list is long and I daren't try to go Bubba on ya - these plus more are staples in many a girls wardrobe as the blogosphere and Instagram will attest and a quick trip to your local mall or favourite online store will show you many takes on all of the above.
I have at least one version of each [bar the skirt] in my closet but only a few remain in rotation as the rest have either pilled, pulled out of shape or become passe.
Some can be on sold, some donated but what to with the rest? Fester in a plastic bag I ignore for another year? Not ideal. Added to the landfill? Not very socially conscious.
