If you are looking to stay warm and chic this winter, the advice I give my personal shopping clients, is that there is nothing more comforting and satisfying than a great piece of knitwear. Whilst I love an amazing dress or an envy inducing pair of shoes, neither is conducive to a chuck-on-and-go dressing situation. A statement jumper works on a cold winters morning, but can also be dressed up for chilly dark evenings and it has the rare ability to bring both warmth and style to any outfit.
The jumper trend is particularly timely now with Christmas only a few weeks away and if you're anything like me, you tend to avoid the dreaded festive jumper like the plague. A statement knit though is a great alternative and will fulfil the same requirements, but in a far more stylish way, without a reindeer or ‘elfie selfie’ in sight!
This season, there are plenty of styles to choose from, think dramatic sleeves, Fair Isle’s, sequins and graphic prints. But beware as buying knitwear on the high street though can be a bit hit and miss. Cheaper styles can mean bobbly jumpers within a couple of wears, though this can be somewhat avoided by limited washing, wearing your bag on your shoulder to avoid friction and careful storage – wrapping them in tissue will help prolong the jumpers pristineness.
