Cable knits are enjoying a modern revival. While they may be at the height of “granny chic” that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to style them that way. Pair a slouchy knit jumper with distressed denim shorts for a casual looks, or wear them with slim-fitting tailored trousers and heels for something more sophisticated. Take a look at some very fashionable cable knits below.

The exaggerated design of this cable knit cardigan makes it stand out from the crowd. The twisted cable knit detail down the front is the focal point of the cardigan.

This top is a different take on the cable knit trend. It is fitted and, I’m assuming, designed to be worn as a normal top. It features short sleeves, a wide neckline, and cable stitch detailing at the yoke. Wear this with an A-line denim skirt and layer on some long necklaces.

Fashionable cable knits are resigned to simple sweaters and cardigans. Take this knitted neck warmer, for example. This neck warmer has button fastenings throughout the front and comes in the sweetest pink colour. It would be perfect for layering over spring outfits, in case there’s an afternoon chill about.

This burnout cable knit lace tank is a great option for the warmer months. I like that it’s a directional take on a classic. It features a scoop neck, racer back, and raw hems. It is quite sheer so wear a slip or bandeau underneath for modesty. Tuck this singlet into a full skirt and pair with a bright coloured blazer.
Cable knits come in a range of designs and can be styled in a myriad of ways. These were just an example of a few fashionable cable knits. Which of the above do you like best?
