We’re loving this MarlaWynne graphic knit kimono.

What’s the look?

Oversized doesn’t mean too big – it means incorporating clever design elements like dropped shoulders, wide necklines, loose fits and longer lengths, with the correct length sleeves and the right fit across the bust and back.

In a choice of easy-to-wear neutral colours this Join Clothes jumper is perfect.

How to:

Forget the look of your teenage daughter wearing her boyfriend’s sweater; this is chic sophisticated knitwear, which looks fantastic teamed with a pair of sleek tailored trousers and heels, topped off with statement jewellery.

Heels will add height to balance the volume, statement jewellery adds sleek shiny texture to the soft knitted fabric, while slim-fitting tailored trousers will offer a perfect pairing of opposites and complement your silhouette as a whole.

Feeling brave?

Team with an above-the-knee floaty skirt and tights.

This MarlaWynne leather trim cardigan gives us no excuses not to try the trend!


Oversized cardigans are a fantastic alternative to your big winter coat too. They’re very often lighter, come in an awesome range of colours and patterns, and so offer a stylish more laidback alternative to your duffle coat or quilted jacket.
