Is there anything better than a chunky cable knit sweater? Yes! A *pink* chunky cable knit sweater! And Instagram’s finest are championing the most gorgeous one of them all: say hello to the Ganni sweater.
A classic fave of your nan, cable knits have been keeping people cosy forever. It’s like a giant hug in a jumper and the perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of tea. Who wouldn’t be down for that?
Way back in the midst of summer, Alexa Chung caused an Insta-storm in her pretty pink Ganni cardigan. She was clearly in lust, ‘gramming it not once but twice and both times teamed with slick black PVC.
Soft woolly cardi in baby pink with the ultimate bad girl texture patent PVC? Let’s take a moment to appreciate this:
Fast forward a few months and now we’re after the jumper version.
Ganni’s jumper, named Brooks, is a super soft Alpaca wool-blend and has some very cool inspiration behind the design. Creative director Ditte Reffstrup’s used two incredible ’90s British muses as inspo: Damon Albarn and Queen Elizabeth.
There’s something about this Pepto shade of pink that makes even the sallowest winter skin look brighter. While we love the woolly beauty in its original grey, the pink version has completely stolen our sartorial hearts. Maybe it’s the masculine cables juxtaposed with delicate pink? Or maybe it’s because everyone cool person on Insta already seems to have one…
The most ‘grammable way to wear the sugary knit is with throwback blue denim. Insta babes Camille Charriere (@camillecharriere) and Lucy Williams (@lucywilliams02) both like to add washed out jeans to their Ganni get up.
For something a little different, try fashion connoisseur Pandora Sykes’ take and throw it on over a pale pink slip and opaque tights. Or whack it under your heavy winter coat and enjoy the funnel neck and those overlong sleeves peeking out.
Of course, we’re eternally fans of doing an Alexa and adding rock chick patent leather. Good girl does rock. Not the worse look to take on this AW16, tbh.
UPDATE: Ultimate blogger aficionado, Chiara Ferragni, has been #blessed with the chance to create her very own version of the ‘It’ knit. As part of her new shop on The Blonde Salad, the digi star has teamed up with Ganni to release a baby blue rendition, hooray! You can make your own here, but something tells us it won’t be round for long…
In true Insta-Hit style, Ganni’s pink knit has now sold out but you can still channel the double-tap worthy look with our woolly picks below…
