My favourite Winter piece this season would have to be a crew-neck sweater / sweatshirt / jumper. They are so versatile. Yes, that’s right, versatile.

When I was younger I would always reserve knitted jumpers or sweaters for that lazy winter day, where I would be throwing on old jeans and sneakers, but now, now I know there are a plethora of ways to wear a sweater and remain polished.

Here are some ideas for wearing sweaters for work, events or on the weekend!



1/ A fresh pair of white pants and white heels pared with a classic great sweater is an unbeatable combination. Go one size up for an oversized look!

2/ When in doubt, pair with denim. Heeled ankle boots automatically make a casual look polished. Pops of colour in winter are always refreshing in a sea of muted tones.


3/ Tap into your feminine side and pair a tailored mini-skirt with a sweater for a polished look.

4/ Pair a collared shirt and tailored pants with a sweater for a polished, yet casual look


5/ This all black outfit is easy to recreate and transitions easily from day to night! The different textures create a balanced, interesting look.

6/ When feminine meets masculine; Dress down a pair of tailored pants and blazer by adding in a little bit of street-wear. This look is sophisticated, yet cool screams cool girl.

I’ll be uploading an outfit post for some more inspiration tomorrow, so tune back in!
