Judging from the frost we can see from the YOU HQ office window, the cold snap in the UK is going nowhere fast. Fortunately, presenter, supper club hostess extraordinaire and Instagram star Laura Jackson has teamed up with Next to create a collection of stylish knitwear that’ll keep us all cosy until spring.
As well as tapping into the season’s ongoing cardigan trend, Laura and Label Mix, the brand’s exclusive designer collection which champions the best and bridgest of fashion’s newest talent, have come up with a range of jumpers and sweatshirts that are real statement pieces, both in terms of colour and pattern.
Almost every piece in the edit is bright and bold, perfect for livening up our winter wardrobes at a time when old reliables can start feeling a little drab. Laura’s designs showcase a pop of orange or vivid grass green, with fun details like stripes, balloon sleeves, lightly-puffed shoulders and drawstring ties to ensure they stand out from the generic grey crowd.
Prices start from £55 for a Drawcord V-Neck Jumper, and reach £85 for the truly swoonworthy cable-knit cardigan, complete with deep pockets and mismatched tortoiseshell buttons. And at those rates, it’s no surprise that some items have already seen their stock start to dwindle.
However, if you’ve missed the cover-up you covet most, fear not: writing ‘A HUGE thanks to everyone who has supported the collection so far’ on her Instagram account, Laura added: ‘a few things have already sold out but I’m told we are getting some more stock in.’ Phew!
