- the greatest knits
warm up a WEEKDAY WARDROBE
Swap your tailored office shirt for an ever-elegant monochrome sweater. Think sculptural and define the waist with a belt out of hours.
Handwash your woolens in lukewarm water. If you must machine wash, put them in a lingerie bag or pillowcase for protection on a slow spin at 30°C.
Red lips with woolens can equal disaster. If you do get lipstick on your collar, daub it with a lint-free cloth that's been soaked in turpentine and rinse with soapy water.
Discover the finer things
Knitwear has moved on from simply cozy. Slip on a lightweight style with a sequined skirt to take it out for evening.
Show some skin
Push back your sleeves - a subtle flash of a wrist is a contemporary twist that lifts the look out of the ordinary.
Do modern vintage
Embody the 1950s sweater girl and tuck a fine knit top into high waisted pants.credits
