With Oscars whispers swirling and rave reviews rolling in, Saoirse Ronan has done it again.

And 2020's It Girl turned her Little Women press tour into a fashion tour-de-force, giving us a master class in how to wear knits right now.

Keep it cosy and stylish in our pick of winter's best knitwear. Carolyn Moore reports.

1. Spring in her Step

Proving that knitwear isn’t just for winter, Saoirse nailed a key spring silhouette in this SS20 combo.

Cashmere sweater, €980, and flared trousers, €790, by Emilio Pucci at farfetch.com

2. Wrap Up

Stylish knits are all about proportions, and this season the bigger the better.

Think big in this supe soft, oversized, knee length cardigan from Selected Femme, €99.99.

3. Over the rainbow

Brighten up those dull January days by wrapping up in a rainbow.

With wool and alpaca in the mix, this Scotch & Soda cardi is like a hug.

4. Sunny side up

Knits will continue to be a bi story this year, so make the transition to spring-ready style in this sunny-hued, embroidered dropped shoulder sweater, €55, Next.

5. Short and Sweet

Take your style from Saoirse and wear this short-sleeved knit over a pussy bow blouse, then give it a solo run come spring.

Lilac alpaca and yak sweater, €69, COS.

6. Spot Check

Polka dots are big for Spring 2020, and Saoirse's getting ahead of the curve in this whimsical that's just right for the winter photocall.

With some smart styling, her Michael Kors runway look should be easy to emulate.

7. Stripe right

The perfect transitional piece and the perfect sloppy knit.

What’s not to love?

8. Skinny minnie

‘70s styling is back with a bang for spring.

Get the edge in a skinny knit cardigan worn over a tight polo neck and paired with flares. Cardigan by Per Una, €60, Marks & Spencer.

9. Sweater girl

As demonstrated by Saoirse, spring’s essential flared trousers pair brilliantly with a textured, cropped knit.

We love this pretty, feminine take from River Island, €50.
