Looking stylish in the winter without sacrificing on warmth can be a tricky balance to get right. After all, it’s hard to feel sexy when you’re wearing four layers and a bulky coat!
Luckily, knitwear has shaken off its dowdy image and there are loads of ways you can work it into your winter wardrobe to stay warm and still look bang on trend.
Fluffy jumpers are a firm fave of celebs like Beyoncé and Kimberley Walsh and look great with jeans for casual daytime wear, or dressed up with a leather pencil skirt for a statement going out look.
Pay homage to the 50s sweater girl pinup with a candy coloured fluffy knit – cute and cosy!
Cable Knit Jumpers
Nothing says winter chic better than a classic cable knit jumper. Wear yours oversized and slouchy for extra fashion points and team with a blouse for a quirky workwear look.
Cable knit jumpers are so versatile and also look great teamed with jeans, skirts and even layered over dresses. Get the look on a budget with a Speckled V-Neck Cable Knit Jumper which is perfect for layering up.
For style and warmth, you can’t beat a jumper dress. Wear with opaque tights, knee high boots and a cosy hat and scarf for an instantly fashionable look that can take you from day to night.
Ladies wanting to make the most of those curves will love a figure hugging style like this Fine Knit Jumper Dress that comes in a choice of black, light brown and mustard yellow.
If you’re after that extra something special, add some sparkle with an Eyelash Knit Dress which proves once and for all that knitwear can be sexy. Team with heels and a clutch bag for evening glamour, or dress down in the daytime with ankle boots and a rollneck jumper worn underneath.
Longline cardigans are the perfect seasonal cover up, and even better – they create the illusion of lengthening and slimming your body!
Whether you’re tummy conscious or just want to feel more confident in your skinny jeans, the beauty of a longline cardigan is that it drapes over your body and is perfect for hiding bums and skimming over tums.
Dress up a pair of jeans with a stunning Glitter Open Front Cardigan or wrap up from the chill in a Longline Dipped Hem Cardigan which comes in a variety of autumnal shades.
The undisputed knitwear champion this season has been the blanket cape, as seen on Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Jourdan Dunn on the Burberry catwalk.
Thankfully, yours needn’t come with Burberry’s £895 price tag (ouch!) Instead, cheat your way to the look with a fleeced poncho cardigan at a mere fraction of the cost.
This brown/beige number ticks the stripe trend and will look great with jeans and knee high boots for wintry knitwear that is cosy and glamorous.
No winter outfit is complete without cosy knitwear accessories. Layer up with thick knit scarves in an array of colours and prints to suit your mood and add a bit of fun with a bobble hat.
Celebrities like Cara Delevigne are rarely seen without one and it’s no wonder – they’re perfect for taming windblown tresses (aka bad hair days) and keeping ears warm from the cold.
We love this Pearl Embellished Bobble Hat which comes in a chunky knit and contrasting bobble.
Elsewhere, accessorising with knitwear is a great way to be playful with cute and fun styles. Embrace the neon trend with some Fingerless Bright Gloves which come in pink, green and yellow – brilliant for keeping hands warm and injecting some life into your winter wardrobe!
