As the cold months continue, be sure to update your wardrobe with a chic new-season knit. From pretty pastels to cool camel, cable knit to cashmere - shop all the best styles, here....
Practical and stylish, there’s so much to love about a good jumper. And we’ve got 38 reasons to invest in another. Or three.
Whether they’re worn with jeans at the weekend, with a pencil skirt in the office or with satin culottes and heels for after-hours cocktails, there’s so much to keep you warm this spring and beyond.
Here at Marie Claire HQ we count ourselves knitwear aficionados so have sorted through the piles of roll necks, cropped knits and cashmere V-necks to find all the best pieces, whatever your budget. And we’ve even got some expert styling tips on how to wear them too.
As ever, knits were a firm fixture on the SS16 catwalks, and statement jumpers were key. Forget dowdy – this season the look is anything but boring.
Colourful knits are also a strong contender. Proenza Schouler and Jonathan Saunders are flying the flag for pale pink while Urban Outfitters and Whistles have candy stripes to tempt you.
Trends aside, there’s new ways to wear your knits, too. Take your cue from the runways and team a roll-neck jumper with a high-waisted A-line skirt for the ultimate new season power pairing.
Alternatively, take your knitwear to the office. Look to H&M for smart ribbed styles and team with tailored trousers,or for something a little more fashion-forward, check out Uniqlo’s oversized styles perfect for teaming with leather skinny trousers and trophy trainers on the weekend.
Whichever style you’re after to update your current wardrobe, we’re pretty sure you’ll find it here. Click through to see, and shop them all…
