The unexpected wardrobe staple that’s all over LFW

And it's the most wearable thing ever

It’s official: the granny knit is back. The wardrobe staple is a favourite with the street style set this London Fashion Week (as seen on Jessie Bush – main image wearing a Ganni jumper and Emma Charles bag), but not as you know it.

This season, it’s all about the exaggerated shapes and bold colours, and the layering – which let’s be honest is what we all want on the freezing streets of London in December.

Knitted with a Fairisle pattern, teamed with cut-off jeans and an oversized trench coat, it exudes Scandi chic.

Another popular look was head-to-toe colour, a bright chunky style (Ganni do this well) with matching trousers and trainers.

There were even editors wearing theirs with statement maxi skirts and another new season must-have: white boots.

Either way, this Fashion Month is all about being stylish AND warm, so do dig out your knit or shop our favourite picks below.
