I Wear This Item Every Single Day—Here's How I Keep Its Spark Alive

It goes without saying that if you live in Britain, you likely own around 407 jumpers. With a cooler climate and depleting hours of daylight, they're basically a second skin. However, volume doesn't always equal enthusiasm, and when it comes whipping up a jumper look for the 78th day in a row, you might find yourself in a pickle. Which is why we've decided to lend a helping hand before things get serious.

If you too find yourself falling out of love with the knitwear pieces you already own, these jumper outfits are sure to reignite your fashion fire. From the trick that makes any outfit look 10/10 (just add these shoes) to the simple layering secret that can ensure you get even more wear out of your favourite dresses, these jumper outfits are where it's at…

Style Notes: Okay, it might seem daunting, but there's no denying that matching your strides to the colour of your knit definitely delivers in the style stakes. Try a muted yellow for a subtler approach or ease yourself in with a tonal hue—perhaps tan.

Style Notes: Look closely and you'll see this street styler is wearing corduroy trousers, which create a cool texture combination with her ribbed knit. Simple but effective. 

LAYER OVER A DRESS

Style Notes: Give dresses a longer shelf life by wearing a knit over the top of them. Not only will it keep you cosy, but it'll also make more polished frocks work during the day. Finish with bright boots or your favourite trainers.

Style Notes: This season, knitwear has certainly been given a fun overhaul with new silhouettes and OTT motifs. Take the extra factor down a notch with a pair of checked trousers and sophisticated arm candy.

Style Notes: Give glossy separates a new lease of life by wearing them with knitwear that would normally be deemed casual (think chunky roll-necks or cable knits). The outcome? If it looks anything like the above, we'll be happy.
