The pleasure of a great pair of jeans and a trophy knit can’t be overstated. Be it a cosy neutral cardigan styled with crisp white jeans; simple blue jeans and a bright sweater, or dark jeans paired with a super-soft bradigan, Katie Holmes style, the feel-good possibilities are endless.
A few things to consider when picking your pairing: focus on the way your jeans fit. Then, pick a knit that complements the style of your denim. Boxy jumpers look great with a high-waisted pair, while baggy jeans are best styled with a high-neck or – if you’re willing to take the risk – a “curtain reveal” cardi.
For inspiration, look to the street-style set. Guests at the spring/summer 2022 shows served up myriad fresh ways to wear jeans and knits. Bright jumpers and baggy denim were a recurring theme both on and off the catwalks.

Why not emulate your favourite Parisian style muse in cropped jeans and a chic sweater? Loafers and a neck-tie will have you feeling like you’re in the City of Love in no time.
All white or cream looks aren’t for the faint-hearted (or clumsy) among us, but they do guarantee an air of luxe.
A cosy roll-neck
Roll-neck knits are a timeless staple. Not only do they keep your neck warm, but they look effortlessly casual.
Cropped and ready
Cropped knitwear isn’t necessarily the most practical, but there’s no denying it looks good. To avoid drafts, add a cosy puffer.
