THE 18-HOUR ROLL NECK

From chunky and loose-cut to fine-knit and slim fitting, the roll-neck jumper comes in multiple guises and works both layered and as a stand-alone piece. This season sees lace detailing added to the shoulders of the black Albeta, giving the classic shape an unexpected twist that takes it from daytime staple to 18-hour investment. Style it with everything from tailored trousers to mini-length skirts throughout the season.

THE MODERN CARDIGAN

Effortless and easy to wear, the cardigan is making a come-back for AW15, this time taking on an oversized, boxy visage that feel modern and fresh. The Karolina’s open design and draped silhouette taps into the season’s minimal mood and the double-faced fabrication puts a luxe spin on a downtime classic. Layer it over a basic tee and wear it with leather trousers or denim, choosing flares for a trend-led look.

THE LOOSE-CUT AND OVERSIZED

There’s little more effortless than an oversized knit and the Rachelle is an especially versatile piece that you’ll turn to time and time again. Elevate the look with a mini skirt or leather leggings or keep things casual and wear it with skinny jeans.

THE LONG-SLEEVED CROP

A cropped length is the perfect between-season silhouette and a chic way to take knitwear through to evening. Long sleeves balance proportions and when styled with high-waisted separates, reveal just a slither of skin and create a look that’s elegant and on-point. Team the Becca top with the coordinating Cady pencil skirt to tick three trends in one; tone-on-tone dressing, neutral hues and new knitwear shapes.
