I Live in Black Jumpers—Here Are 4 Chic Outfits That Keep the Interest Alive

This winter, we're going back through the archive, reintroducing our favourite timeless items that have kept us company through seasons past. Rather than rushing to the checkout to snatch up the latest trend-led pieces all the time, we're often found shopping our own wardrobes and restyling those key pieces that have never let us down. Of the lot, one of my personal heroes for autumn/winter has to be a simple chunky, black knit. With styling potential to see you through the chillest months every year, there's no other item more worth investing in for a cold British winter (well, maybe apart from a coat).

Though I've been coming back to this item for longer than I can remember, I always like to shake up my styling patterns to give my black jumpers a fresh feel each time. To help revitalise your own trusty black knits, see below for my edit of new ways to style the key piece this season. And don't forget your de-bobbler!

Style Notes: Contrary to popular belief, you absolutely can wear white trousers in winter. Opt for a heavier fabric than summer's favourite linen, such as denim or wool, and finish your look with mary janes for an easy and elegant ensemble.

Style Notes: An easy trick to elevate a black knit is to style it up with contrasting fabrics. A structured leather skirt dresses up any slouchy knit for an effortless look that's dripping in style.

Style Notes: Puddle pants are taking off as the anti-skinny-jeans trend to shop this winter. Wear a pair in a neutral tone with a complementary bag and chunky boots or sleek loafers for a stylish look that's both comfortable and casual.

Style Notes: I'm already cosying up in my leather aviator jacket (yet again). A favourite of the street style set, the leather aviator has rocketed in popularity in recent months. Warm up your look by shopping yours in a shade of brown.
