How to Style Cosy Cashmere and Winter Warmers

Winter has well and truly arrived this week so with a cold spell ahead of us, with freezing temperatures and snow predicted, it's time to invest in a luxurious cosy cashmere or warm wool knit. Here's our guide to the most stylish Winter warmers.

Duffy

New York knitwear brand Duffy has designed the ideal Winter knit in the form of the Funnel Neck Cropped Argyle Knit. Made from 100% wool there’s no better knit to keep you warm and cosy this winter.

What’s great about this Duffy knit is the cropped shape which flatters your figure, plus there are endless ways to style it. For a grungy look style the charcoal knit with side splits with ripped Frame Denim Jeans or J Brand Leather Leggings. Or for a super cosy yet chic Christmas look wear the cloud knit with David Lerner Leggings or high rise super soft jeans, like the J Brand Maria Skinny in Carbon Blue Sateen.

360 Sweater

The Gia or Bree cashmere knits by Luxury American knitwear company 360 Sweater are the perfect Winter wardrobe staples. The simplistic boxy design is perfect for layering. We love the Gia or Bree over a classic white blouse from IDA or a printed Equipment Shirt. Style with boyfriends or ripped jeans to create the perfect androgynous look.

Alternatively try styling the Bree with a 360 Rose or Nelva jacket for a transitional look that can be worn both day and night. Complete the look with J Brand Maria's in Coated Quartz.

360 Sweater Gia is available in Cadet Blue, Heather Grey and Heather Camel. 360 Sweater Bree is available in Black and Navy.

Minnie Rose

Knitted from luxury cashmere the Minnie Rose Ruffle Shawl is the perfect wardrobe essential, as worn by the Duchess of Cambridge Princess Catherine just after her wedding to Prince William. With beautiful ruffled detail edging, the shawl  stands out due to the original and adaptable piece.

What we love about the Minnie Rose ruffle shawl is that it is both individual and easy to wear. Style yours over the shoulder or as a scarf with high waisted skinny jeans and an oversized handbag for a look that won't date. For three ways to wear your Ruffle Shawl, check out this advice from Donna Ida stylist Jo Pratten.

Markus Lupfer

If you’re looking for a more stand out knit Markus Lupfer is the brand for you.

The iconic Polka Dot Lips knit is slightly oversized so we like to pair it skinny jeans. Or take inspiration from Made in Chelsea's Rosie Fortescue and Chiara Ferragni from the Blonde Salad by styling this knit with a Muubaa Dani Leather Skirt.

The Textile Rebels

Another statement knitwear designer we love is The Textile Rebels; the Italian company are known for creating effortlessly cool and contemporary designs and this Tartan Flower Knit is the perfect piece for Winter. Tartan is a huge trend this season; we’ve seen bloggers and the fash pack in tartan shirts, skirts and trousers. The Textile Rebels translates the trend into a luxe silk and wool jumper. Pair with black skinny jeans and a leather jacket for a biker chic look.
