Ella Emhoff is pulling attention all over Instagram and online through her quirky and unique style. Not only is the 22-year-old Parson graduate signed with IMG Models, but her taste in fashion that draws from the artsy, quirky and chic makes her an up-and-coming modern style icon. From small businesses to luxury brands, this young artist-model has proven that she make anything, and everything, work. Emhoff dresses to impress, but she does it effortlessly—even when it comes to knitwear, a trend she clearly loves as she often adopts it in her everyday looks. In fact, she created a collection of knitwear that echoes her adolescent diary and childhood photographs for her Fine Arts final project, fusing art and fashion into one.
Her creation, appreciation and taste in knitwear places her at the frontier of trendy knitwear looks that have recently taken Instagram and Tik Tok by storm. This surge in knitwear popularity follows the Y2K (Year 2000) fashion trends that have been growing in demand, especially on social media. If you’ve been wanting to give knitwear a go but unsure of where to start (in this weather? Yes, it’s possible), Emhoff is your go-to knitwear queen. We’ve put together this round-up of some of our favourite looks of hers for you to steal some inspiration—from the presidential inauguration to her everyday ‘fits.
