The trend 'argyle knit pattern' is a top searched trend. With Molly Goddard’s sleek diamond pattern, TOGA's wearable take, JW Anderson’s blown-up paisley knit, and even Victoria Beckham taking the grown-up approach even further by matching with a tweed skirt.

How to cop: This Argyle Sweater With Sequinned Applique by Zara, $12.00, is a great choice.
