As the seasons change, so must your attire. The days of only wearing a t-shirt are gone for another year and you say hello to knit wear. With the weather getting colder and winds blustering around you, keeping warm is your main concern. However, by finding colours and styles that suit, you can remain stylish in any situation.
There are a wide variety of styles to choose from, so where do you start? The first consideration is how warm you want to be. Knitwear doesn’t always have to mean thick and heavy plain pullovers. Neither are you restricted to awful Christmas jumpers with large images of reindeer or Christmas trees on your chest.
One concern when choosing knitwear is it can provide unwanted bulkiness to your figure. To combat this, choosing knitwear with horizontal stripes can make you appear slimmer. Also look out for knitwear that promotes a slimmer look. Much of today’s knitwear is geared towards a slim fitting style.
Choosing colours can be difficult. The main rule of thumb is to keep away from bright colours in winter – keep them for the summer sun. Neutral tones are the best, particularly grey and blue. However, if you want to add some variety, dark reds and rich purples make you stand out in a bland crowd. Black also never goes out of season and remains fashionable.
Another trend that has emerged in the last few years is the option of having collars available. Funnel necks give you extra warmth, an alternative to wearing a scarf. Shawl necks provide the same purpose, but with its folded style it offers greater chic to any outfit.
Cable knits have always been a winter favourite and appear each year in stores. The criss-cross pattern makes a boring crew neck knit come alive. Wear with a pair of jeans to create a perfect casual look.
V-necks are simple and great for achieving a smarter look. They're a great addition to any wardrobe due to their flexibility. Whether it’s a high or low V-neck, combine it with a t-shirt or shirt to create an effortless look. As they come in an array of colours, you’re bound to find a V-neck that suits you.
Cardigans also offer a smarter style with many more varieties than V-neck jumpers. The cardigan is no longer associated with Grandads either. Buttons on cardigans are all important when buying. If you want to avoid looking plain, toggles provide an alternative to regular button and give an outfit a focal point.
There are a plethora of mens jumpers to choose from, so try experimenting with different types to find your style.
