At this point in my career in fashion, my winter-wear radar is fine tuned and, I don’t mean to alarm anyone, but it’s currently going off like crazy. The object of my attention is an alpaca blend knit from Arket I’ve had my eye on since winter last year that has finally been restocked in its full size range and six colour ways.
Plucking from the season’s favourite colour trends, the cosy knit is available in vibrant blue, apple green, jet black and wearable beige—amongst others. Already a firm favourite within the fashion crowd, the in-demand jumper has been spotted on several of our favourite influencers this season.
Though its extensive colour range is a big selling point, I’m personally more struck by the perfect silhouette and premium composition, both of which have me ready to incorporate this knit into my edited capsule collection right now. Composed of an alpaca and wool blend, the crew-neck knit is naturally insulating—a saviour on a brisk early morning. Softer on the skin than sheep wool, alpaca wool also has a water-resistant quality that will work hard to keep you cosy on a drizzly day.
Marrying a comfortable fabric with a classic cut, the crew-neck design loosely skims the body for slightly oversized effect. Ribbed trims feature at the cuffs, neckline and hem of the jumper for a neat motif that adds structure to the slouchy silhouette.
For its endless styling options, I’m becoming more and more tempting to tap the checkout button. Style with a black mini skirt and knee high boots on a mild autumn day, or wear with your favourite denim, a wool coat and a thick scarf when the weather calls for layers.
