Men's jumpers: From casual to posh
Unless you really don't feel the cold, you'll need men’s pullovers in your wardrobe! These versatile garments can be worn in many different situations. Make your jumpers do double duty, by choosing styles that work equally well in an office environment and on the street. Two of the most popular, classic choices are turtleneck jumpers and crew-neck jumpers. Both are equally stylish, so choose whichever you prefer; some men like V-neck jumpers to draw more attention to their pecs. If you're wearing them over a shirt, make sure to have your collar fully out – nothing will ruin your look faster than a sloppy collar. Be sure to respect the golden rule, too: Never wear men’s jumpers over a bare chest. That's one style that will never be in fashion!
How to make men’s jumpers look upmarket
To look stylish in men’s jumpers, think about how they fit into the rest of your wardrobe. A good, easy look that most men can comfortably pull off involves a bit of colour contrast. Choose something that will look good with your trousers; if you're wearing khaki chinos, for example, go for deep blue or dark green jumpers. If you've got black trousers, then you could choose a light blue or light blue pullover. In both cases, stick with a plain white shirt. Willing to experiment a bit? Try a striped or argyle jumper. For the most upmarket look, pay close attention to the composition. Wool is good, but merino is softer, and nothing beats the luxury of cashmere.
Dressing down in casual men’s pullovers
Want men’s jumpers for the weekend? It all depends on how casual you want to go. A henley jumper, with a short zip that finishes at chest level, is good with jeans or chinos for a look that’s relaxed but still polished. For comfort in men’s jumpers, though, nothing beats hoodies. Go big and baggy if you want to stick to the classic urban look, or choose one that’s a closer fit for something that still seems stylish; a separating zipper makes it more versatile. If you want to wear slim-fit men’s jumpers, look for lightweight knit fabrics. It can be a good idea to choose a different shaped neckline for your jumper and your T-shirt. For example, if you've got a V-neck jumper, wear a round neck tee underneath. This creates an interesting visual effect.
