It is officially Winter which means it’s time to ditch the swim shorts and sun cream and start layering up. Although Winter can often feel long, dark and dreary, there is no better way to cheer yourself up than investing in some seasonal knits. Knitwear is an important staple in any man and woman’s wardrobe. This year the runway has left you spoilt for choice as an abundance of styles hit high-street retail which means you’re bound to love one (or two, or three) and there is no excuse for being cold.
The best knitwear on the high-street this Winter is embracing bright colours to inject the dark, cold weather with a pop of vibrance. You can even take this to the next level by trying the psychedelic geometric patterns which will ensure you make a bold statement this Winter. Another way of turning heads is to try a neon or animal print jumper which were all the rave at New York Fashion Week AW/18.
This trend is extremely popular this year which isn’t surprising considering it offers extreme comfort and warmth as well as a cute and effortless look that you can wear with pretty much anything. You can find oversized branded jumpers anywhere, from Primark to Urban Outfitters depending on your budget. A top tip is to look in the men’s section for that perfect oversized fit. Pair your oversized jumper with a pair of boots for that ultimate cute-chic look, or if the thought of bare legs makes you cold, then pair with a pair of jeans or tights for that extra snug look.
Whatever style jumper you like, you are sure to be able to find it cropped. Although a crop is not everyone’s cup of hot chocolate, a baggy cropped jumper can be super flattering when worn with a pair of high waisted jeans or trousers.
The crew neck is a timeless cut within fashion and looks perfect on a jumper for that laid-back, uber trendy look. The crew neck jumper works perfectly when layering under a jack or on top of a roll neck. It also looks incredibly smart under a blazer.
The roll neck knit is extremely popular and 90s throwback that everyone is enjoying. Roll necks work best in dark colours such as black, navy and grey and are perfect to wear under a big coat or a tailored jacket and paired with a scarf. It is important to remember that when you wear a roll neck, it is the pinnacle of your whole outfit, so make sure you dress around it. If you opt for a roll neck in a vibrant colour, then keep in mind to tone the vibrancy down with a heavy piece of neutral outwear.
