Knits are absolutely vital as we are enveloped by winter’s embrace, and we’ve picked out four essential knitwear pieces that every woman needs in her wardrobe.
The Chunky Knit
As temperatures drop and the wind gets up, a big, chunky jumper or cardigan is just what you need to see off chills. Whether you’re nesting on the sofa or tackling the commute head-on, these thick knits feel like wearing a warming hug. We’ve pulled together a whole range for you to choose from, including this fab example from Join Clothes.
The Glam Evening Cover-up
The party season means many of us will be glamming up in a fab dress, but that can often mean bare arms and unwanted chills. Stave off the cold with a luxe cover-up like this sequined bolero from Nina Leonard, and ensure you stay both warm and red carpet-ready. Our party wear selection includes loads of ideas, including lace and sparkly options.
The Fun Festive Jumper
Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day campaign has caught the public’s imagination and the trend for fun festive jumpers isn’t going away! We’re being joined by Quacker Factory for three shows on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week, and they’ll be sharing their new designs for Christmas 2014. If you can’t wait ’til then, this sweet cardi features six furry friends in Santa hats, and is perfect for dog-lovers everywhere.
This year’s National Christmas Jumper Day is Friday 12th December.
The Instant Warmer
As the temperature starts to drop, it’s always handy to have a layering piece on hand for those moments when you need a little extra warmth. Stick to basic block colours and simple shapes to make sure these go anywhere and with anything, like this crinkle-effect cardigan from Yong Kim.
