Weekend Wardrobe 101: Plush Knitwear

Warm, check, comfortable, check, stylish, check!  Whether your weekend plans entail an insta-worthy grammable brunch your bestie , a quick shopping trip and a fun night out (be it romantic or festive) your off-duty wardrobe matters! The quickest way to achieve instant style status over 48hours, is to turn your attention to plush knitwear pieces combined with light-wash chambray jeans and as always some no-nonsense chic accessories!

As a change from the usual dark colour palette that dominates the season of rain, I thought it was time to inject a bit of light change into the mix yet still keeping it rich in fabrics which makes it season appropriate. A super easy chic option, this look only really requires two wardrobe staple pieces.

Whenever I am shopping for knitwear, I always seem to struggle to find pieces that are warm yet fitted and stylish at the same time. The most common style your likely to stumble over in the stores, is the over-sized chunky knits, which aren’t always the easiest to work into your wardrobe!

The particular knit top that I am wearing is available from Forevernew and features multiple layers of ruffles on each sleeve and has an exaggerated finish, which makes for great detail and interest.The fit is quite structured for a knit top, and sits closely on the body, providing a polished finish.

This piece the ideal for teaming with a range of different outfits. For a slightly dressier look you can always wear a black leather skirt and over the knee boots for a completely different look.For the purpose of recreating a weekend go-anywhere look, I opted to team my very faithful light wash chambray harem jeans with this top.

Fighting the urge to reach for the black skinny jeans, I determined that I needed to have at least one Winter look that didn’t include even a hint of black. (chambray jeans available from Seed). The shade of the light wash jeans, teamed with a rich shade of white plus the introduction of tan accessories, makes for an incredibly effortless outfit with ultimate style.

Sometimes as soon as the winter months hit we tend to forget about our lighter jeans and go straight for the dark washes. Lighter wash jeans set the tone for any outfit and have the ability to drastically change the overall look of a top & outfit.

The harem style is also great when you want to create or achieve a more relaxed look to your outfit, without any zips just an elastic waist they are ever so comfortable to wear all day too!

To bring your two wardrobe staples together, introduce a range of tan accessories with your outfit. I opted for this subtle yet stylishly striking DKNY crossbody envelope bag, which offers a lot of versatility to my outfit.

This minimal style of bag, is great for teaming with your outfit and offers just enough room to fit the essentials. Keep your jewellery instersting and look for pieces that are striking yet subtle to off-set the top. I opted to keep to a colour palette of predominately rose-gold.

Coordinate a bold lip with a pop of berry red on the nails, for feminie chic finish. Finally opt for your favourite pair of light tan or taupe shoes and your look is complete.
