During the winter months it becomes a necessity to wear a variety of jumpers and sweaters to keep warm, but that’s not their only purpose. A good piece of knitwear can be an extremely stylish way to layer your outfit and give you the perfect winter look. With knitwear now available in a wide assortment of styles and materials, we take a look at this year’s favorite knitwear styles.
The cardigan is a style of knitwear that has been around for a long time. It can be thrown over any ensemble with ease it is great for layering. Whether you’ve chosen a lightweight cardigan or a heavy knit to bundle up in, the effortless style of the cardigan is certain to dress up your wardrobe. There are many different cardigan styles you can go for, traditionally cardigans have buttons on the front, but newer styles are seen without buttons, letting the cardigan hang open. Wearing the cardigan open can help to frame the torso, which in turn will give you a more casual look and softer shape, due to the relaxed material of the cardigan. If, however, you prefer a more ‘put together’ look, wear the cardigan buttoned and pair it with a jacket over the top.
The V-Neck jumper is a straightforward piece of knitwear that can be easily worn by itself or layered over other pieces. A V-neck is perfect for layering over button up shirts and displaying knot ties, as the style of the jumper helps display the shirt you’re wearing underneath. V-neck sweaters can also give you a slimmer appearance as they give the illusion of an elongated face.
The Crew Neck
This is probably the most common style of jumper you will find. The crew neck jumper is a more causal style of knitwear that allows for easy styling. It is perfect for layering under a garment or jacket because of the collarless neckline. The shape of the jumper draws the eye to the upper half of the body, creating the illusion of a square frame, so this style is perfect for men with slight or sloping shoulders.
Constantly falling in and out of fashion, the turtleneck sweater has a distinct retro-style vibe and is known for its ability to keep you extremely warm. Turtlenecks tend to draw attention upward of your face, and so are better suited to taller men with strong and defined jawlines. For a slim-fitting turtleneck with a suit for a fresh take on your office attire, or simply pair with jeans and a coat for a casual look. #standout
