There's nothing like the perfect outerwear piece to complete any winter look.
It’s the layer that tops every outfit you put together, and the one that can make the biggest impact. With all the outerwear options available out there, you can feel either spoilt for choice or overwhelmed by your options.
Lucky for you, there are a few things you can do to make sure your wardrobe has everything you need without cluttering up your style. The best rule you can follow? Stick to some core outerwear pieces you have to have in your closet at all times. Here are our top six suggestions:
Button Knit Cardigan
A cardigan is an essential knitwear piece. It’s light enough to layer on in warmer weather, while still giving you that coziness your winter wardrobe craves. We love the silhouette of our Button Knit Cardigan. The longline hem means you can layer it over anything from dresses to trousers. The high side splits add a chic edge, while the oversized, functional button detail down the front adds a stylish touch to this piece. To top it all off it comes in a khaki hue that adds color to your ensemble without being too bright.
Perfect For: Days when you want a light layer, or when you want to liven up a simple outfit.
