Top 4 Emerging Knitwear Trends for 2021
Top Knitwear Trends to Look Out For This Year
At the dawn of a new year, we look to our wardrobes somewhat uninspired as we’re yet to know the biggest upcoming fashion trends, but looking at Google trend data, there are encouraging signs that knitwear, Aran, sweater and cardigan products will once again prove a big hit among US consumers and help us through a cold, bleak winter.
Rest assured, this year will be like any other with an influx of new styles and recurring looks we will see along the catwalk. For the first few months of the year, we’re anticipating knits and sweaters to be seen a lot less on the high street given the global lockdown restrictions, but more so across the parks, playgrounds and homes of the nation as we embrace more socially-distant, quality family time.
Not only do our timeless Irish wool products keep you warm and looking stylish, but they are a great transition from the months spent sitting at home in your comfy loungewear to going out again once reconnecting is safe and compliant. With that in mind, here is the Sweater Shop’s guide to top sweater trends in 2021.
Ponchos, Capes and Wraps
Ponchos make an appearance every winter season. However, during the early stages of 2021 they are making heads turn already.
Our unique collection of Aran wool ponchos will keep you warm, comfortable and stylish at the start of this new year. Made using the traditional design methods of the Aran Islands, the ponchos are of consistent and long-lasting quality.
If you’re a fashion-savvy lady looking for a brand-new coat, consider the Merino Wool Poncho in a wintery charcoal color. This is perfect to wear with jeans, leggings and boots for casual outings or long walks with the family and will protect you from the cold.
The Double Knit
Heard of double denim? Well, now the world is welcoming the new concept of the double knits. That’s right, knitted sweaters and bottoms, this style is perhaps slightly dressier than your traditional loungewear but feels just as cozy.
Discover the collection of Irish sweaters and cardigans as a way to start off this look. Available in a range of colors and sizes from the iconic earth color of the traditional Aran wool to darker tones.
To help achieve the double-knit look, why not pair the Irish Sweaters with one of our stunning Aran Scarves or even hats? This is a quick, simple and easy way to be on trend and protect yourself from the cold!
As for men, winter is all about layering, try to step away from your usual wool jumper and discover our fisherman sweater or cardigan. Comfortable, great quality and warmth are the three primary elements of our Aran fisherman sweaters selections.
The way the sweaters are made has been passed down to our talented team of Aran knitwear designers, create quality sweater products in the traditional way of the Aran Islands.
Our Men’s Shawl Collar Aran Cable Stitch Cardigan is a fantastic sweater for men who aren’t used to layering. This can be worn buttoned or open and can be styled by itself or under your coat.
The buttons themselves are keeping up with the 2021 trend of buttoned cardigans, ensuring you look stylish and keep warm this winter.
Buttoned Aran Sweater
If you’re searching for a new Irish sweater for children, then look no further. The Aran sweaters come in the form of pullovers and cardigans. The biggest winter trend for Children’s clothing in 2021 are sweaters which incorporate oversized buttons.
Our pick of the bunch for boys is the Kids Hand knit Merino Sweater with button feature which has three lovely buttons up the shoulder.
For girls, we have the lovely Aran cardigans in a variety of colors from green, red and white which can be worn with jeans or skirts to ensure your little one stays warm – a firm favorite for St. Paddy’s Day each year!
