With the cold come the heavy fabrics, the chunky cover-ups, and thick layers on top of each other. Forget what you thought was winter jumpers; they are no longer synonym with the one you pull out on Christmas day that screams “grandma made it and I have to wear it”.
Luckily, jumpy is trendy. Why? Because designer labels went bananas on wool, cashmere and mix fabrics to knit and purl.
The result: an endless selection of hot gilets and outerwear to top up your wardrobe. Tap in the rustic and masculine look, yes now it is sexy, promise!
It looks good to be warm and we must admit it feels good so as fashion is getting comfy we have no reason to refrain ourselves from investing in useful pieces.
According to the weather forecast, we might have another very cold winter so why not get ready and make your picks while the proposal is out.
You cannot go wrong with Nordic prints or plain neutral colours, but you might need and want some lessons about layering. Your fashion expertise will be assessed on your ability to combine thick silky tracksuits with woolly slouchy coats.
A farmer urban look dressed up by a belt and a fedora, yes, seen on the
catwalk and would love to see it on streets.
A knitted tailored AW10 photo album: Dolce&Gabbana, Costume National or Kenzo, fashion houses went for the full tweed suit which does not sound appealing but is perfect on body.
Of course, the know-how and the finesse of the trimmings transform traditional yarn to luxury knots to knit, knot and dot.
