At this time of year, knitwear is a godsend. Not only because it looks good and keeps us warm, but also because this fashion genre is a key part of being effortlessly stylish. To work it into your everyday wardrobe, mix and match cable-knit jumpers and striped sweatshirts — very in vogue — with trousers and skirts. A simple way to look amazing quickly.
Be effortlessly stylish with layers
Dressing for a mix of events and environments is one of the trickiest parts of fashion. You have to choose something appropriate for the office, while still selecting the perfect after-work drinks get-up. Get rid of this problem and make dressing easier, comfier and more stylish with layering. Throw on a polo-neck jumper underneath a square-necked top or go for a turtle-neck sweater under a smart blazer for work. Couple with your favourite pair of jeans and an ankle boot to fully master the look.
Have you ever spent far too long choosing the right shoe for your outfit style and colour? There’s no time for this if you want to be effortlessly stylish. Instead, go for the trusty boot to keep you looking on point.
Boots are quick and simple fashion accessories, and the sock boot — featuring a pointed toe, high heel and textured fabric that fits to the ankle — makes a great shoe to quickly pull on with jeans during the day and a stylish skirt on a night. When it comes to colours, black is a great choice as it can be worn with pretty much any outfit. Choose a pair with a chunky heel so that they’re suitable for all occasions.
Customisation tips for an effortless look
When you need to get out the house fast, you have precious little time to find the best rings, necklaces, bags, and bangles from your collection. To help, simply choose a cute black bag to use every day, or buy one with a pattern to keep things interesting. Pair with jeans, skirts, tapered trousers, shorts, or dresses as the mood takes you!
Once you have your bag sorted, search for big and bold statement jewellery that you can pair with any outfit on any occasion. Tassels, chunky metal and huge hoops are all ideal this season and can be matched with most outfits. Choose a black or gold pair to make sure that they complement your ensemble and keep them in your bag to slip in for after-work drinks.
Jumper dresses: the ideal zero-effort fashion staple
Knitwear items are always handy to have on you when you want to create a fashionable outfit in a hurry. However, this season is all about the jumper dress. It’s comfy, chic, and needs practically no time to match with other items of clothing. Plus, long sleeves mean you don’t need to scour your closet for a complementing coat either! Boost your confidence and style by wearing your jumper dress with a chunky belt that pulls your waist in for a gorgeous silhouette. Or, wear it with neutral pumps or ankle boots and a pair of black tights.
