The Best Chunky Knits for Winter 2013

Keeping snug and warm this season has never been so much fun. No longer relegated to the weekend for an off-duty look, the chunky knit is now one...

of this year's outspoken statement pieces. The high street is joyfully brimming with colours and shapes suitable for every body shape.

  1. Cable Knits: This year the cable knit is very popular and will take you effortlessly through winter. Pair a coloured one that comes just below the waist with a pencil skirt for a slick office look, or with leather trousers or skinnies for extra fizzle. It also dresses up wonderfully with a statement necklace. This style of knit works particularly well on a pear or rhubarb-shaped figure, and can be easily accessorised with a skinny belt. They also look great with floral print pants or coloured jeans. On the high street, Mango have a great vibrant red option for £29.99 and Zara have a great navy blue and bright white version for £35.99.
  2. Overized Jumpers: Oversized jumpers which skim the thighs are perfect partners for this season's staple skinny trouser. The best way to wear this look is to counteract the jumper's loose, nonchalant fit with a slim or boot leg trouser or jeans and a heeled shoe or ankle boot. Oversized jumpers work especially well for those with apple figures who should opt for a V-neck in a fine or merino wool instead of a chunky knit which will only add bulk to the stomach area. Roll up the sleeves and wear a chunky bracelet to compliment the arms. Don't be shy and select knitwear with interest - as well as looking amazing, it also draws the eye upwards. Rhubarbs and pears can also make the oversized jumper work to their advantage by clinching it at the waist. A sequined oversized knit is a fun option heading into the festive season and adds an instant touch of glamour to a day time look - a perfect choice for lunch with friends or a family outing. Oasis have great V-neck options in animal print for £45.00 and Reiss have a lovely sequin version in a smoke colour for £95.
  3. Crop Jumper: The crop jumper is one of this year's most stand out knitwear trends and is perfect for layering over a shirt and a statement necklace or earrings and instantly adds extra texture to your outfit. Whether it's a chunky crop or a fluffy lighter one, it looks amazing with a high waisted pencil skirt, leather trousers, and this season's popular A-line flared skirt. It works well on pears and rhubarbs whose best feature is their slim waist. Cropped peplums are fantastic on the rhubarb figure because they add extra definition to their non-curvy frame. French Connection have a Salt 'N' Pepper Jumper for £69.00 and Ted Baker has a gorgeous on-trend pink wool peplum for £99.00. Meanwhile Zara has a chalk pink version which also comes in caramel for £17.99.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
