Cable Knit

Words by Matt Huxley

It’s blatantly no secret that winter is upon us, and what better way to keep warm than with a gigantic chunky jumper. Not only will it keep you toasty, but it covers those bumps well and it’s 100% bang on trend.

My personal fave/the only knitted jumper I own, is this cable knit River Island one. Cable Knit was all over the runways last season and the trend has trickled down to the high street and finally jumped over to Aus.

Once used to keep fishermen warm out on the pond, or lake or whatever, it’s now been re-appropriated for your sweaters.

Naturally with something bulky up top, I wanted to balance it with a pair of slim fit chinos. These ones from Industrie work perfectly. Offset with a white button up and white espadrilles, this outfit works perfectly for a crisp day relaxing on the balcony. BBQ outfit anyone? Do people BBQ in winter? I’m so not outdoorsy.
