The big, chunky, knitwear trend as been here since last year, but I’ve never been really partial to it until this season for a simple reason. I can´t wear a big sweater and then a coat!! … So for me the Knitwear as Outwear trend is just perfect. I love the look of the sweaters as coats, I can style them up a bit with some nice slim fit chinos, a nice oxford shirt, a bright colored scarf and a beautiful pair os smart shoes (Brogues or Derby’s), or if its really cold some work boots with the trousers tucked in them and some happy shocks !.
These two jackets by Henri Lloyd are a great example at that.
The first one is a hybrid between a sailing jacket and a cardigan with an high tech lining and hood, it’s called the Barton.
The second one, the Bowers, a more classic approach. Double breasted with the coolest collar. The bowers is more classic, you can even wear it over a sports coat or a plaid blazer (a nice Harris Tweed maybe!).
You can get them here at Henri Lloyd’s online store.
Oh !!! and by the way this brand supports the Mercedes GP Petronas Team … Nice !!!!!!!!
