This season our Grandmas will be proud, vintage Christmas knits are back with a bang and raring to go. Reindeer, cable knits and snowflake patterns were only popular with the Bridget Joneses of yester-year, but step onto the high-street this season and you shouldn’t be seen without a cosy variation of this trend.
Some of our favourite bargains in the knitwear department came from the Queen of all things discount and style; ASOS. Get snugly in a gorgeous mustard Vila cable knit grandad cardi for only £25. Accessorise with a £9 ASOS cable fur bobble hat (the fur and knit combo is very hot this season) and some £7.50 fairisle converter gloves. Don’t forget Aztec prints and oversize blanket cardis are also very popular this winter, don’t settle for expensive, this red and black number is a very reasonable £45.
As chiconomistas we are obviously all about getting the best for less and, for those of us who are a little bit in love with Urban Outfitters, this find is a little bit exciting. Urban Outfitters are offering 15% off their Christmas catalogue which, drum roll please, is full of fabulous knits. This look pretty much says it all but we think the best part is definitely these Silence and Noise Mono Fair Isle knited trousers which will be yours for £38.25 with the special discount. For any of these lovely winter goodies simply enter SANTA at the checkout.
