Sweater weather

An oversized knit is a style staple for winter, not to mention how snug and comfortable they are. Feminine, stylist and so versatile, editor Trudi Brewer reveals this season's best sellers.

Over-sized sweaters were made to wear with skinny jeans - but we challenge you to push your style and consider wearing a chunky knit with man-style pants and brogues, leather leggings and sneakers or a hip-hugging calf-length skirt with heels. Here's our pick of stylish sweaters.

Above: Cable trapeze knit $199, from Country Road. Rib caplet  $199, from Country Road
Twist and shout sweater, $329, from Trelise Copper

Second row: Balance sweater in hunter green, $387 from Taylor.  Everyone's favourite sweater, $389 from Standard Issue. Ample sweater in charcoal, $300 from Moochi.

Style tips: A sweater and scarf combo is so elegant, we love a pretty pastel or patterned cashmere scarf teamed with a grey or black bulky knit.

Our favourite look and one that gives the most structure is layering a long line sweater with a coat or blazer over the top. 

For the office team an over-sized sweater with a crisp white collared shirt, fitted man-style pants and heels.
