Wardrobe Hero: The Winter Knit

Give praise to the winter knit. Comfy, cosy and oh-so lovely, these sweet sweaters are perfect for everything from sofa snuggle sessions to styling up for Sunday best. Whether you like your knitted number chic and sheared or fluffy and festive, there’s nothing like a woolly jumper in the winter!

One jumper. Three ways to wear.

We’ve taken one of our favourite winter knits from the Simply Be AW13 collection and styled it in three very different ways. From keeping warm on winter walks to partying in your pullover, take a look at our top ways to wear the fluffy wonder this season.

Chic and cosy
Pair your jumper with jeans and a pair of trusty winter boots for a laidback look in a flash.

Our Top 6 Winter Warmers

With this morning’s sprinkling of snow our thoughts have turned away from party dresses and towards all things to keep you warm, cosy – and dry! And stylish of course, but surely that goes without saying.


1) The Festive Jumper

soft and cosy jumper in festive red is super snuggly. The dipped hem shape is perfect with leggings and Ugg-type boots.

2) The Cardigan Coat

If it’s cold but dry out, or you just want to wrap up in an extra layer indoors, this Joe Browns cardigan coat (or coatigan) will keep you toasty.

3) Thermal Socks

Nobody likes cold feet! If you’re out on a wintry walk, line those wellies with some heat-retaining thermal socks and crunching over icy puddles will be a walk in the park.

4) The Faux Fur Scarf

Faux fur has been a big trend this season and what simpler way to work the trend than with a vintage style fur stole. Warning: people may try to stroke you.

5) The Knitted Beret

Team your fur scarf with a cute soft beret – after all, you lose the most heat through your head! If you think you don’t suit hats you’ll find this style surprisingly flattering.

6) The Fleece Gown

Whether curled up on the sofa watching a Christmas movie or gathered around the tree with your family on Christmas morning, you’ll need to keep out the chill. Slip into this super soft long sleeved fleece gown and get that fire going!

If all else fails, we find that a nice mug of hot chocolate or mulled wine warms the cockles nicely!
