A knit a day will keep the doctor at bay, or so the fashion police will have you believe. ‘Tis the season to kick your winter wardrobe into new heights and here's how.
Reuse and recycle your spring and summer clothes by cleverly bundling prints. If a floral dress, or sheer blouse you're finding hard to part with, simply layer it underneath an open knit cardigan, or double up with a faux-shearling vest. A pair of heat tech tights or jeggings will do the trick of disguising lighter fabrics. Also don't be afraid to your layer textures like leather, which perfectly compliments wool. Go easy though as too much volume will bulk up your frame.
A coveted pattern for many a-winter, the Fair Isle adds a touch of quirky cool to every urbanite's wardrobe. While the conventional chunky knit jumper seems an obvious choice for many, a cropped wool blend Fair Isle cardigan will tick many style boxes.
Bold and Body-Con
A grey woollen body-con skirt is a great alternative to a cotton or silk pencil skirt. Combining it with a navy waist-length blazer will mirror the tailored and put together look just as well. Otherwise mix it up, with a maxi body con dress in autumnal tones like burgundy or mustard. Warm enough to be worn with light tights, the knit maxi will stun underneath a duffle or even a boyfriend coat.
From the knit beanie to the crocheted shawl, the sky is the limit with your choice of winter accessories. So whether it's a cosy snood, a cute cable hat or stylish beret you're after, make sure it's comfortable and versatile. Accessories are a great way to showcase our personalities, aim for stylish and simple not eccentric and cluttered.
