When it comes to knitwear, this is the key item to have. They can be worn in any season, and are versatile to match: knitted jumpers made of light cotton or fluffy cashmere, with long or short sleeves and a round or V-shaped neckline. Currently at the top of the list for the hottest wool pieces: turtleneck jumpers. But fashionistas can't get enough of the simple basics either.
These wool classics are begging to experiment with a broad variety of yarn qualities, knitting techniques and styles. They are just as suited to elegant looks as to rustic leisure outfits. Fine, smooth knits look great at the office matched with British tweed, while cable stitch patterns are just asking for a rendezvous with jeans and a down vest.
Do you have less-than-ideal proportions and a large bust? Then it's best not to get too attached to chunky knit wool jumpers with thick cable patterns. They have a tendency to bunch up. A much more flattering look: unadorned, minimalistic jumpers in a stocking stitch made from extra-fluffy, thin yarns.
