A slim fitting sweater is the perfect choice for accentuating the parts you feel positive about. They balance perfectly with wider fitting trousers or full skirts and slip effortlessly underneath coats and jackets.
Make a statement in an embellished jumper, including fancy cable stitching, intricate embroidery, stylish stripes and colour-tipped cuffs. The perfect choice to elevate a pair of everyday jeans.
The go-to choice for between-weather days and excellent for layering over shirts, blouses and dresses. If you’re unsure of wearing a solid shade, this is a great way to add a pop of colour to a neutral look.
Who doesn’t love an oversize sweater – a throw-on piece that’s easy and effortless. To create some definition, simply tuck a little piece of the hem into your waistband – an effective styling tip if you find the volume a bit overwhelming and it will accentuate the legs too.
I love a v-neck and think they flatter all body types. For those that are a little more top heavy, a v-neck cuts down into the knit and reduces the illusion of a larger bust – and a petite person tends to look more proportioned because the vertical downward point gives the illusion of added height. Enough said!
Boxy sweaters are not only a little roomier than most knitwear silhouettes, but they’re great teamed with this season’s higher waisted jeans, trousers and skirts. This cropped style also exposes the entire leg giving the illusion of longer limbs.
Alongside our knits that have a dropped back to cover the derrière – a design that has always proved popular! – we’ve some maxi length cardigans that offer plenty of coverage when warmth is the priority, without compromising style.
Cardigans continue to trend this season and offer style versatility when it comes to buttoning-up or wearing open. A great choice if you’ve a pretty blouse with decorative buttons or frills at the front, but also very chic worn over a classic white tee.
