A Ganni jumper in any colour is the very best piece of chunky knitwear out there. Hand-loomed in a wool and mohair blend, the result is this weighty-looking, but lightweight-feeling, jumper that you can tuck as easily as wear out. Not to be reserved for your off-duty wardrobe, these knits work just as well with dressier pieces. And this particular style, with deep cuffs and slightly shorter sleeves (in the perfect shade of creamy white), will be the hardest-working piece in your office-and-out wardrobe. Here’s how we’ll be wearing it.
This look solves one of our pet peeves about cropped jumpers and jeans – that gap you get between the knit and the waistband (it can be breezy). Dungarees are one of our favourite off-duty staples, and the cream knit is like a winter-appropriate t-shirt, keeping the look laid-back but warm. Finish with trainers and hoops.
Sequins and knitwear make great bedfellows. The jumper plays down the super-glam feel of a sequinned pencil skirt; the latter makes the former seem smarter. So the look is balanced and everyone is happy. Make the most of exposed forearms by stacking on some chunky gold arm candy.
The top half is all cosy and comforting; the bottom half means business. Pairing sharply tailored pieces, such as these cigarette trousers, with something more relaxed, like a short-sleeved jumper, perfectly captures the modern mood of workwear.
We’ve been talking about clashing prints a lot this winter, but there’s something luxurious and old-school glam about clashing textures like cosy knitwear with tulle and faux fur. The look is equal parts cool and classic. Just swipe on a matt red lip (like Marilyn) and hit the town.
