With warm weather but a distant memory, there’s something quite comforting about the humble sweater.
Even the autumn/winter 12 catwalks cottoned onto the cosy factor.
Ribbed and cable style polos at Christopher Kane, chunky belted jumpers at Mulberry and Marc Jacob’s pilgrim-esque pullovers all had the fash pack in knots.
Get ahead of the style set and start wearing yours now.
Soften a classic shirt with fine wools like merino and angora, or add boyish texture to a ditsy dress with chunkier cable styles.
Pair a cashmere pullover with a pencil skirt and kitten heels for desk-to-dinner chic.
Opt for thinner knits for a leaner look. Oversized styles have catwalk credibility but can overwhelm a bustier silhouette or apple shape.
Wrap up in next season’s hot hue – burgundy.
