The slightest mention of knitwear can go two ways: the super-expensive, ultra-luxe, break-yer-bank kind, or the put-a-smile-on-yer-face, pocket-friendly kind. And that’s more than enough hyphenation to shake a stick at!

Being advocates of any wardrobe investment that adds to our style without forcing our finances into a (self-inflicted) drought, we’ve tracked down the hottest knitwear buys that’ll keep you on-trend, as well as on budget.

What’s the key to snapping up an expensive looking knit at a fractional price, you ask?

1. Opt for wool blends that include the more luxe variety such as Angora,Cashmere and Merino for a softer, less ‘synthetic’ feel.

2. Adding a dash of print and a smattering of embellishment will update a budget buy, and allow for versatility when dressing ‘up’ your look.
