Trend alert: knits

This fall it is time to get cozy in knits.  Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, Hermes and others showed layers of sweater dresses, tights, leggings, and scarves. Knits have an 80s vibe this season. They tend to be ribbed, soft, and more fluid than in the past. This look is most flattering if you keep all the pieces monochromatic. Match your tights or leggings to your knit dress or top for a leaner, taller look. Keep all layers in the same tonal group. Lighter, less bulky knits are more slimming.
