How To Style Winter Knitwear

How to Syle Winter Knitwear

Winter knitwear, a seasonal necessity that is often forgotten about in fashion terms. Whether you are wearing your knitwear for warmth, or to bring a pop of colour and texture to your outfit, sourcing the perfect jumper for the chilly months ahead can be problematic. From using knitwear to dress down an outfit to keeping snug at a smart event, Lynn Woods has the style solution.

Use knitwear to enhance your body shape and features

Selecting the best knitwear for your body shape is something of a fine art, but the most important thing is you choose that appeals to your senses first – some colours, fabrics and silhouettes will resonate with you straight away. Keep an eye out for waist enhancing features of luxury knitwear designs to take your winter warmers to the next level – the hem details are delightfully subtle yet highly effective.

Whether your curves are on your top or bottom half, knitwear can be used to enhance your natural shape. Many women feel uncomfortable with the shape of their tummy and tend to pull jumpers down over their waist to hide the area, but this can make an unnaturally square body shape. Instead, gently drape over the hips or tuck into your trousers to accentuate your waist.

Choose women’s knitwear or wear an undergarment with shoulder pads to give extra definition and balance. Knitwear such as this Standard Issue funnel neck jumper achieves the same result using a statement neckline to draw attention away from the hips. Necklines are fantastic at enhancing and balancing features – try different styles to see which design works best for you.

Honour your favourite dress

How many designer dresses do you have in your closet that you would love to wear more? Take a dress you would ordinarily wear for a night out and pair it with an understated sweater to create a favourite skirt.

The contrast between the fabrics and styles is gloriously grungy but with an ultra-feminine kick. Wear with high-heels or chunky low boots (depending on your mood), or even a white sneaker for a wonderful statement of fashion liberation.

Total statement jumper

For when you know you are going to be in a cold place, and you need to dress up but don’t want to wear a dress or wear a blouson shirt because you will be cold – a total statement jumper is the ultimate solution. This is when less is more.

Paired with fabulous earrings and a slash of red lipstick, heels and coordinated with same colour trousers for a premium look – the total statement jumper is a triumph of understated elegance. Play with your silhouette; high volume trousers and a slimline coat provide an androgynous style of excellence.
