Prepare your wardrobe for colder days with our round-up of the best knitwear, coats and accessories for winter
From punchy printed sweaters to super-soft, block-colour cashmere, now is the time to embrace new-season knitwear in all its glorious forms. Add interest with clever layers: a checked crew neck looks great with a fine roll neck in a bright colour and a casual shirt layered underneath. Or keep it simple and choose a classic Fair Isle jumper that will never go out of fashion. For winter walks, team your knitwear with easy-to-wear denim and ankle boots – you can even flirt with the baker boy trend for added style points.
Beating the chill is all about layers – from our ultra-warm thermal tops right up to padded coats, featuring Heatgen and Thermowarmth technology to stay extra cosy but still lightweight. If in doubt, stick to a palette of similar colours, such as a Breton top under a denim shirt, with a navy coat on top. Then you can add colour via accessories, whether that’s a vibrant bobble hat or a bold belt to give your look a fashion edge.
When you’re wearing the same winter coat for months on end, accessories really come into their own. The easy way to change up your look is to opt for bright bags, comfy, stylish boots and wonderful woollies in an array of colours. Winter-ready accessories also make great Christmas gifts.
