 Lovely, but it’s still cold outside!

 

The problem is that warm, cosy jumpers are still an absolute must in any sane woman’s wardrobe. But if you’re getting bored of them and longing for warmer weather, here’s my guide on how to breath some new life into your winter woolies and feel stylish and smug…

 

Trick no 1 –  Simply add jewellery and stylish accessories…

Starting with one of my own particular favourites, this is a jumper I found in Jigsaw before Christmas. I’ve given it a makeover by adding a glitzy statement necklace and I’ve also added a little cross body bag with stud detail.

This is actually quite a slouchy jumper but the accessories glam it up a bit and even take it into the evening. I’ve been out to a dinner party and drinks wearing this very jumper!

Trick no 2 – Layer, Layer, Layer…

Master the art of layering and simply wear one of your textured jumpers over a white or patterned shirt. Keep the shirt untucked and reveal the cuffs for maximum style points and to create an interesting look!

There’s no reason why you can’t wear a jumper to work – it looks great paired with a smart skirt! (this second look is from Net a Porter).

 

 

 

 

 

Trick no 3 – Add a playful scarf…

Another favourite of mine which may seem obvious, but the addition of a scarf in a bold or clashing colour or print can really add some interest to the plainest of jumpers. Here are a few looks I love…

Trick no 4 – Add a cropped biker jacket

I really like this look and it can really define your figure while wearing longer, shapeless jumpers. Leather looks particularly good but you could do this with a woollen or jersey one too. Jigsaw and Whistles do a good range…
