Choosing your winter cardigan
Cardigans are a serious staple for any fashionable man’s wardrobe. Every man should have a collection of different cardigans for different occasions. Thinner cardigans and v necks are perfect for in the office, they also look great with jeans for a smart/casual outfit.

Thicker cardigans give a rustic look and are the perfect addition to jeans and boots in wintry weather. Chunky knitwear is everywhere this season. Long and patterned styles are set to head the trend
Finding the perfect men’s jumper
Jumpers are a comfortable, cosy style that is very fashionable this winter season. Anything that both keeps you warm and looks good is a must have in our opinions!
V-neck jumpers are the most flattering and are particularly desirable for bigger men. V neck come in a variety of styles and thickness’ so whatever style you’re going for you can get the perfect jumper for the occasion.
As with cardigans thinner jumpers are more appropriate for a work environment. V-neck styles are the smartest and look best with a shirt, tie and trousers. For casual wear patterned jumpers are set to be popular this season with chunky v-neck jumpers also being popular.
Grey is one of the biggest colour trends this year, so wear a grey chunky jumper with jeans and boots for perfect winter style that will keep you warm and looking great!
If you’re looking for a comfortable, casual style then go for a sweatshirt, hoody or track top. When worn with jeans and trainers these make a comfortable and relaxed style that is still fashionable.
