Say goodbye to your shirts and short-sleeved tops – we’re definitely into the season of the jumper! But don’t worry, there’s no reason why wearing your winter warmers has to be boring on the fashion front.
We’ve got loads of stylish sweaters at George, so jump to it and shop for your AW/15 wardrobe essentials. Here’s how to create layered looks you’ll love:
Who says mens’ jumpers have to be just for men? Double your winter wardrobe possibilities by checking out the menswear section too. Or just borrow from your other half for the ultimate bargain. A soft cable-knit jumper will look great with skinny jeans for snuggly over-sized masculine style. Great for throwing on for shopping trips when you don’t want to wear a bulky coat. Pull in with a belt for a girly twist or wear with brogues or loafers and rolled-up jeans to really rock the trendy menswear vibe à la Fearne Cotton.
Don’t be a bah humbug! Get into the festive spirit with a fun Christmas jumper to wear through December. Gingerbread men, reindeer and robins are all fair game. Or go for a touch of tinsel sparkle for a subtler seasonal look that can be worn for everything from nativity plays to office Christmas parties.
A plain jumper pairs perfectly with this season’s on-trend tartan skirt – a favourite back-to-the-‘90s look for Taylor Swift. Go for a cowl neck to keep you extra warm and cosy, and wear with tights and boots for an easy outfit to see you through to spring. Or dress up a plain fine-knit jumper for nights out with a sparkly or leather-look skirt and you’ll look fabulous without having to freeze!
Collared jumpers, or two-in-one shirt and jumper sets, are ideal for winter work wardrobes. They make it super easy to add an extra warming layer without ruining your smart office look. Choose a fine knit so you can still fit a suit jacket over the top for a perfectly professional solution to cold weather days – fashionista Alexa Chung is a fan.
Is there anything nicer in winter than snuggling down into a soft, slouchy sweatshirt or cardigan? A thick knit or a hood will keep you extra warm and a cosy Christmas themed jumper looks great over jeans and boots when you’re out walking the dog or running errands in the cold. Or throw on over a pair of stretch leggings and socks for comfy loungewear that keeps you cosy in the house.
