Jerseys and cardigans are winter essentials in any man’s wardrobe. And the sooner you stock up, the better prepared you are for a cold snap. There are a number of styles to invest in to ensure you stay warm without compromising on style when the weather cools. The crew neck jersey is a knitwear must-have and it’s worth investing in a number of shades. A simple style that can take your look for too cosy to dapper. It’s completely versatile as it is great for layering. Wear it under a blazer or leather jacket by night and during the day it looks great when worn under suit. Start with black and then add a few more neutrals to your collection. You can experiment with colour but only if it works with your wardrobe.
The cardigan is an easy way to update your wardrobe. It’s a lighter alternative to a jacket and if you find the right style and texture is an easy way to take your outfit from boring to stylish. Try to find a dark neutral that will work with most of your wardrobe – black or navy is a good start or try charcoal and grey. Keep it low-key by going for a loose fit cardigan with understated buttons, but let it stand out from your regular knitwear and look out for styles with rolled collars. Similar to a jacket, it can be worn opened or close and will soon become your go-to workwear uniform on those chilly mornings when you’d prefer to stay in bed. Pair with a white shirt, dark wash jeans and black lace-up brogues. If you’re feeling adventurous with your knitwear, look out for bright colours or bold patterns and if you want to play with the jerseys and cardigans in your wardrobe then try layering them over each other.
