Style Notes: I'll find any excuse to style up leggings, and this red cardigan is no exception. Dress up the look by pairing the leggings with sleek kitten heels, and let your accessories do the talking by opting for a chic necktie and pretty gold hoops.

Style Notes: Red cardigans and dark-wash jeans are a match made in heaven. Wear with trending ballet flats and a warm winter coat, then throw on some simple accessories to complete the look.

Style Notes: There's no need to leave your knitwear at home when heading out for the night. Wear it open over a simple black slip for a flush of texture and pop of colour.

Style Notes: Add a grungier element by styling your red knit with hardy biker boots and a metallic bag. To soften the look, add a billowy skirt for a high-low outfit that ticks all the right boxes.
