Let’s be honest. Historically, sweaters and cardigans have earned a reputation for being boring basics. But—with many things—the fashion world has a palpable tendency to breathe new life into what was once thought to be plain and mundane.

Designers like Loewe are leading the charge, stamping that iconic anagram logo on technicolor knits, while brands like Khaite are continuing to make us fall in love with oversized grandpa-inspired cardigans and cashmere undergarments too. And it’s not just the tops that are getting a knitted makeover. There are quite a few ribbed skirts to match those crewnecks and cardis.

Take a look at some of the brightest street style stars and you’ll see that their chic ensembles prove that knitwear needn’t be boring. We’ve gathered five of the best looks and knitwear trends to inspire your seasonal look, below.

Cream of the Crop

While tailored vests ruled the summer, this fall and winter’s hero is the knitted cropped vest. Play with retro prints like argyle and layer the funky knits with leather for an instant cool-girl effect.
