All good layering starts with a statement knit.

Winter is quickly creeping up on us, and it’s sadly time to put our cottagecore outfits away and to shake up our wardrobes with some cosy knits to live out our winter-cabin-core dreams.

WATCH: Emma Chamberlain’s guide to how to look cute when you’re on your period.

The knit game has changed so much over the past couple of years, and now you can experiment with cardigans, turtlenecks and jumpers without rules – and some may say the more ludicrous the colour and pattern clashing, the better.

Every aesthetic will thrive with a  strong knit collection; even if you’re a crop top queen, dark-toned purist, feminine fairy, or a classic french-girl-style enthusiast, you can style your cardigans and jumpers to fit your vibe.

We look to our fave TikTokkers and ‘Gram gals for some inspo to shop our own.

Emma is so clever with her layering techniques – just looking at her Instagram can be used as a literal personal moodboard.

She loves wearing sweater shirts layered over turtlenecks underneath and crop tip cardigans over cropped singlets.

Emma also likes to embrace pattern and deep colours to emulate high fashion but through an accessible lens that can be replicated through a bit of experimentation.

These knits will get you rocking that fashionable aesthetic asap.

Our girl Maddison may be an LA girl at heart who loves stringy crop tops and mini skirts, but she prefers a more baggy fit that can be layered simply when it comes to knitwear.

Maddison is also partial to a grandma-esque cardigan, but she makes it cute by pairing it with a bralette underneath. A hot trend this winter is to wear a knitted crop top underneath a cardigan, which is easily achieved as a set, or you can choose to be like Maddison and mix it up.

This It Girl loves herself a more masculine and minimalist aesthetic that speaks to her high fashion roots – but more seriously and simply than Emma Chamberlain’s playful take.

She has been spotted in neutral to dark tones with a more laid back approach to layering. As in, there is nothing crazy to see here, just a stunning girl devoted to looking chic and Parisian.

Amaka is the Dutch and Nigerian influencer that has become the muse of some of the hottest up-and-coming designers. Oh, and she’s dominating our insta feeds with the most awe-inspiring looks.

She does a clever job at mixing high and low fashion to make effortlessly replicable looks that are also so damn snug (which makes sense since the Netherlands is one coooold-as place).

This Aussie influencer has a more playful take when it comes to donning knitwear as she prefers to play with colour and really goes all out to express herself through bold patterns.

For those of us who like to add a pop of colour, you can pull ideas from Flex and coordinate them in a way that speaks to your taste.
