Dull winter wardrobes begone! How to put the cool into cosy

Put a new spin on the winter knit!

Now that we are fully submerged in the winter weather, we tend to automatically reach for our trusty, but often boring, knitwear. In this exclusive YOU fashion shoot, we show you how to layer playful bright knits and bold florals to brighten up your wardrobe – no longer does the cold weather have to compromise your style. Whether you like your knits oversized for the cosy-cocooning-effect, or fitted and figure embracing, we have you covered!
