The Best Of The Winter Knits

You see, I’ve been putting this post off until the weather really started to turn chilly; because what’s the point in lusting after adorable little cable-knits and lounge-around sweats when you can’t even wear them? But, now, as we head into the third week of November, winter has finally arrived and the single-figure temperatures have greeted us once more. That means that, it’s official ladies, you officially have a reason to go and stock up on a new winter wardrobe of wool! Seeing as I’ve been searching the web for a good few weeks now (I don’t know how, but I always end up with a lack of jumpers when it comes to winter time.), I am fully prepared to give you the low-down of the cutest and cosiest winter knits of 2015… Enjoy!

The High-Necks

Over the course of 2015, this has slowly become my favourite and most frequent style go-to for chilly days. Got you’re turtle neck on? There’s no need to unfashionable tie your scarf PROPERLY (shock horror), just sling it on like those off-duty models do. It’s a no brainer! Personally I prefer tighter high-necks as they don’t turn my figure into that of a marshmallow, but if you’re really not a fan of your stomach area, then I’d suggest going for the 1st and 3rd options below. Also, in my opinion, high-neck sweaters are about the most attractive thing a male can wear; so while you’re at it, sneak one in the basket for the man in your life too!

The Everyday Jumpers

Simple and easy to wear, my ultimate aim in life is to probably own a full rainbow of these sorts of jumpers. Mix it up by going for different necklines; you can see below crew neck and slash neck, for example.

The Just Plain Stylish

Spot on for this season, that’s what these three are. Stripes are where it’s at; simple but they add that necessary bit of variety to any outfit – I must own about 5 stripey tops, horizontal, vertical, blouses, tshirts, but there’s always that urge to buy ONE MORE! Onto ombré; we’ve seen this everywhere over the past couple of years – hair, fur, you name it, so why not try a jumper for the colder months? And lastly, tassels/fringing, whatever you want to call it – flatteringly positioned on a cute little pullover? Yes please! If this isn’t quite your thing, why not try a tasselled bag instead –  Topshop do some gorgeous ones!

The Ultimate Christmas Knit

Okay, if you’re a bah-humbug kinda character, now is definitely the time to look away, but for those Christmas fanatics like myself – THIS IS YOUR TIME! What could be better than the annual Christmas knit? No more ‘knitted-by-your-grandma’, Christmas jumpers can be fashionable! My biggest tip would be, go for subtle. (Unfortunately 2014 me who purchased a light up, tacky, Christmas jumper from Primark last year didn’t listen to her own tips.)

Surprise! I’m not yet done – alright, this section isn’t strictly in tune with this post’s title, but I just couldn’t resist showing you guys this little selection of things that I absolutely adore…

I’m also loving:

My overall verdict is GO H&M!! You’ve really excelled yourselves this season! So, if you’re in a hurry to pick up a little jumper, that should be your first port of call. Have you found any other must-have knits for winter 2015? Let me know in the comments!
