BOXING DAY KNIT IDOLS

26.12.12

Ok, so you've eaten too much turkey, drank far too much wine and the thought of stuffing yourself into anything remotely figure-hugging feels you with dread. But, fear not, Boxing Day is all about recovering in front of the TV or taking a bracing winter walk in your snuggliest knitwear of the year. But forget Christmas jumpers, they're so yesterday. Today, we look to our knit idols for inspiration.

ROLL NECKS

One of our favourite knits (particularly for guys) this year, is the roll neck. Tried and tested by the likes of Steve McQueen and Marilyn Monroe, the neck-warming knit is a Boxing Day hit.

Try the Benois knit for girls and Neptune for guys.

SLOUCHY KNITS

Perfect for a Boxing Day paunch, a slouchy knit hides a multitude of sins. That's not to say they can't be stylish though. Check out Brigitte Bardot who wears her with printed capri pants.

Girls should try the Clarissa shawl neck jumper and guys our Juke.

PATTERNED KNITS

Christmas jumpers are banned until next year, but don't let the novelty factor wear off. Swap snowmen for stripes and Father Christmas for Fair Isles, or anything patterned, like Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant.

Girls should pull on the Bebe knit and guys, the Holland.
