Power cable pairings: don denim with your sweater for laid-back cool or look to Sara Flaaen Licius’s leather vibe for added edge

The humble cable-knit sweater is fast forming the basis of a well-curated closet this winter, with intricate patterns instantly elevating a classic, and chunky textures serving to ensure you’re warm and chic. Take styling cues from fashion aficionado and layer a jewel-toned, oversized knit over muted separates for an understated yet put-together finish. Alternatively, look to stylist Oumayma Elboumeshouli’s asymmetrical cable knits, which pair well with rebellious chunky hardware, or model Sara Flaaen Licius, who works a black leather belt and mini skirt to toughen up a vivid magenta sweater.

When updating your collection of cable knits, consider versatile cashmere version, too. The relaxed fit and neutral beige hue is the perfect everyday option – pair with cream, brown and black for a laid-back look with polish. Similarly, ‘Palima’ cable knit delivers a contemporary take on a timeless staple, with a traditional pattern that makes it great for wrapping up in by day, plus cutout detailing for after-dark appeal – we love it with and sandals. Alternatively, if you’re craving a bright statement, look to ‘Vilma’ sweater, which is cut from vibrant orange cashmere. Complement the vivid sunset hue by layering it over a pink maxi skirt and strappy heels for impromptu drinks.
