2 New And Fun Ways To Layer [And It’s Not A Polo Neck]

November 06, 2020

Every Autumn Winter season I look forward to new iterations of knitwear to add interest to even the simplest of outfits.

And even more so now that we are spending more time at home, I am enjoying getting creative with basics and layering my clients clothes in new and fresh ways.

I love a polo neck, by the way, but let’s freshen it up a bit.

Here are 2 of my favourite layering trends to elevate your denim, leather, leggings or favourite cashmere trousers.

And they are both Zoom friendly too!

1. The Sleeveless Knit:

Layer over a boyfriend shirt, polo neck, denim shirt or your favourite dress. In the Spring I love them with bare arms a lá 90s.

Highstreet: Massimo Dutti

Mid Range: Isabel Marant Etoile

High End: 3.1 Phillip Lim

2. The Twinset:

Trust one of my favourite brands, Khaite to make the twinset cool again. We are thinking more Katie Holmes bra-digan than Grandma’s cashmere and pearls.

And you don’t worry if your budget doesn’t extend to designer price tags, the high street have recreated this look with some impressive results.

Wear them as separates too; I wear my knitted top layered over shirting or a polo neck. You can see it in action on my instagram.

Highstreet: Mango here & here

Mid Range: Staud here & here

High End: Khaite (of course!) here & here but also love this from Rosie Assoulin

I’d love to see how you layer so tag me on Instagram.


PS. Last week I wrote about one of my other favourite knitwear looks, the knitted dress. Find your favourite here. Or to get more personalised advice contact me here!
