In the depths of winter, it’s tempting to make like a woodland creature and bury into hibernation until the early signs of spring but to combat the chill this season we’ve embraced an equally as cosy option and one that’s significantly more stylish… the roll-neck knit. Here, we celebrate this classic style and explore the outfit possibilities that it holds.
We celebrate the roll-neck jumper and explore the outfit possibilities that it holds
1. OVERSIZED AND TEAMED WITH LEATHER
Ideal for milder days in the city, the oversized knit is the only outerwear substitute you’ll need this season. Team luxe wool and cashmere styles in oversized silhouettes with sleek leather for a sumptuous clash of texture.
2. PALE-GREY AND WORN WITH PLEATS
The knife-pleat midi shows no signs of relinquishing its spot as the front-runner in skirt styles for autumn/winter but to give it a cold-weather spin, try teaming it with a long-length jumper and boots that cover just a little more ankle than you’d hide in summer. Soft grey tones eptiomise the season's colour palette.
3. SKIN-SKIMMING AND STYLED WITH JEANS
If big and boxy isn’t your thing then fear not, the roll-neck jumper comes in all manner of fits this season, with skin-skimming styles making a more dressed-up alternative to their oversized sisters. Balance proportions with boyfriend jeans or wear with a leather mini skirt for a chic take on the look.
4. THE LAYERING EFFECT
Perhaps the most traditional take on knitwear styling, the roll-neck jumper lends itself particularly well to layering. Try teaming frosty hues with contradictory black and add a slim neck-scarf for a trend-focussed twist. A blazer and jeans make for a dressed-up take on daywear.
5. TEAMED WITH TONAL HUES
Continue the season's tonal styling directive into the depths of winter by choosing knitwear in a shade that chimes with your outerwear. White and tan will bring fresh perspective to darker days.
