This winter it’s not simply the texture or sheer thickness of the wool but its entire aesthetic. Bold primary color in a block pattern, contrasting bright tones and boxy forms redefine the 2011/2012 chunky knit. We recommended opting for simple shapes with two dominant color blocks or only really chilly days don the thickest and largest woolly offerings you can find. Cable knits and thick ribbed detailing are the ultimate in winter wares, and we must report jumpers have taken precedence over the former favorite granddad cardigan for the year. This winter we’ll be clashing tartans and textures, a tartan print blouse with a tweed tartan skirt? I say yes.
Coats, Collars: and at number one it’s the Peter Pan, I’m sure everyone is sick of hearing this but to be fair they are rather popular. If you’re feeling a little sceptical about this then can we please recommend opting for this season’s top accessory the detachable collar, a simple way to update your lovely winter overcoat, jacket, shirt…the list goes on.
Colour: Not one to discriminate however, it has to be rich, luxurious and simply heart-warming jewel tones; emerald, ruby and all your favourite gems sparkled across the catwalks of February 2011. Ruby reds and burgundy hues are beyond doubt the favorite shade of the moment, a simple winter color update can come in the form of the many gorgeous knits available at all time favorite high street retailer Zara. what you need to keep warm this season, the coat. This might seem the most obvious apparel for colder weather but most of you won’t want to invest in a new winter warmer and even fewer of you will take the time to select the right one.
