After Christmas knitwear gets annoying. Suddenly there’s static in your hair, it’s all itchy and inconvenient because what you really want to wear are floaty dresses and your most comfortable of tees, even with awkward rock bands printed on them. It’s okay if you never actually listened to their music.
At this point knitwear has a pivotal role to play. To me, unless you have a journey to Thailand booked, January – February is a bit of a cretin of a period. It really doesn’t inspire to keep up with those resolutions you have set out for yourself after the clocks stroke midnight. The only thing that motivates me to roll out of my bed during this dark vortex of two months is wearing something that truly flatters, and knitwear doesn’t always.
Thankfully this understated turtleneck jumper tunic does. Mixed with a pair of cigarette faux leather pants, the most comfortable Dolce&Gabbana heels ever made and the fluffiest Saint Laurent bag, the knitwear morphs into a canvas to all of these embellishments. This look is easily transferable from day to night with some extra eye-liner, not much more. Useful, now that there is some daylight creeping in. Longer days are coming.
This is my second look from my #WaysToKnitWear series. The first one is just here.
