Stepping Out In The Statement Sweater

This week I’m loving the trend that has taken the streets of New York, and even New York Fashion Week, by storm. The great thing about it is that it doesn't require much effort, and if you’re like me, you've probably been rocking it for years during those lazy “sweater weather” days. 

Finally, the sweater has made a fashionable comeback that’s easy, comfy and oh so chic. Designers like Burberry  had fun with what was once a discreet staple, at their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection, using bold knits and colourful comic book-inspired prints, which I LOVE.

To be honest, I wasn't initially sold on this trend, thinking it might be sloppy and thoughtless, but I am now fully convinced that the statement sweater is this season’s fashion essential. It's trans-seasonal and can be worn with anything in your wardrobe right now, making it the ultimate quick-fix update for pretty much everything.

Whether you team yours with a pair of jeans for a more laid back approach or a cute skirt for a more lady like look, the possibilities are endless. For the super chic out there, wear yours with clashing prints or muted palettes, ladylike pencil skirts or androgynous tailoring.

Either way, this isn't the season to reach for your old grey or beige waffle knit. Now is the time of the statement sweater!

I believe winter knitwear should be the main style event rather than just a layer of warmth. So make your mark this season and embody one of the most accessible and downright comfy trends to wear right now.
