The nights may be drawing in and the mercury may be dropping, but there’s one piece in your wardrobe you can always rely on to get you through the winter: your staple knitwear. Stumped on how to style it? From V necks to cardigans, we have you covered with an essential guide to five key shapes that are worth investing in during the colder months.
THE ROLL NECK
High on the neck for a snug fi, and with a suave finish that’s perfect for a suit accompaniment, the roll neck is the ultimate smart casual layer. Keep it classic with a ribbed pattern, or go sleek with navy and black shades.
THE CREW NECK
The crew neck exudes a certain casual charm, making it ideal for those off duty moments. Whether it’s a weekend exploring the city, or lunch with the parents, chucking on that crew neck sees effortless style guaranteed.
THE V NECK
With a V neck detail that’s made for showing off layers, this cut is ideal if it’s chilly in the office but the dress code is strict. Team underneath a blazer, or add a cardigan over the top if it’s particularly cold.
Ditch your preconceptions of the cardigan; it’s far from out of date. Looking great under a classic pea coat or thrown together with a plain white tee, the instant warmth is immeasurable.
THE FESTIVE KNIT
Don’t think the festive knit has to include some sort of gaudy print… keep it subtle with classic cable knits and a nostalgic palette of reds and greens for a stylish ensemble for Christmas Day.
