The time has come for warm layers and chunky knits. Feeling cosy is easy enough; our faithful jumpers often feel like a security blanket during the winter months, but throwing on a big jumper may not always feel as stylish as you’d like. Here are a few tips on how to style up your nanna cardigan or your cable-knit jumper, whilst striking the balance between effortless and chic. Accessories Are Key A statement earring or a few layers of pendants will easily give a plain black or navy jumper an update. If you’re not a big fan of jewellery then you could opt for a hair accessory, a simple hair band or pretty clip will add a girly finish to a subtle jumper and jeans ensemble. Alternatively try a neck scarf to elevate your look. With a darker shade of knitwear try styling the jumper with light wash distressed denim and white ankle boots for an on-trend look.

Choose a bulk-free knit like a thin cashmere roll-neck jumper and then layer under a blazer or a biker jacket, then wear both of these underneath your overcoat. For a chic finish, caping your coat over the top of your shoulders will add a stylish twist.

When it comes to chunky jumpers, the easy way to make them feel a little more sophisticated is to tuck in the front of your top into your lower layer for a polished finish. This is simple but effective trick will give your outfit an update whilst still looking sleek.

In order to create more shape, you can always cinch in the waist with a belt. To complete the outfit, a pair of of-the-moment hiking boots will add just the right amount of edge for a casual finish.
