Winter knitwear returns

‘Tis the season to stay cosy. Even though it’s not time for Christmas jumpers just yet, this month’s knitwear selection is about to become your new best friend. Get ready to roll up your soon-to-be woolen sleeves and go on the hunt for some of these highlights that will keep you chicer than chic.

Heads, shoulders, knees and toes
Well, perhaps not knees. But beanie hats are definitely bringing sexy back. Practical and pretty in pastel, wool has never been worn better.

Guys, go for a standard oversized beanie for that casual look and girls grab one with a cute bobble on top. There are tons of knit scarves to suit your style too, and don’t be afraid of colour this season; we know it’s nearly winter but there’s no need to dress like that dark rainy cloud overhead!

Our personal highlight is the spread of woolen socks to hit the shops recently. Buy them extralong so you can scrunch them around the ankle when you’re trying to add extra student flair to your outfit.

Ladies first
One gem that his been spotted this month is the knitted dress: an ingenious cross between those adorable oversized jumpers we all love, and popular dress styles of anything from skater to bodycon. Now you don’t have to worry about which jeans you need to wear with that jumper, just whack on one of these with a pair of tights.

Woolen tights with a cable pattern are also a nice addition to any outfit, particularly in a casual grey or deep navy. Lace wool dresses and yarn knits are especially soft if you want something you could use as a pillow during lectures, whilst looking the part of Beauty and a rather fluffy Beast.

We like a well-dressed chest
Guys, your date-ability is effectively decided by whether that fabric is going to make you snuggly and warm when cuddling on the sofa. That and whether it makes you look like Ryan Gosling. If you want to look good this month, there are so many knit options you can’t go wrong.

Patterned, thin jumpers go well if you like to layer up, with a bit of a Christmassy feel, or try a one-tone cable knit sweater for something warmer and chunkier. Now is the time to woo with your wonderful woolen superpowers. Go get ‘em.
