My sartorial needs right now are simple: to be warm and comfortable. So that means nothing is coming between me and my jumpers at the moment. Still, after pulling on my favourite cream cable-knit jumper for what feels like (and probably is) the 500th day in a row, I’m in need of some fresh inspiration on how to style it as we head into spring.
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Jumper-and-trouser outfits are hardly groundbreaking—they’re one of the most basic combinations out there. But aren’t the simplest things always the most effective? I certainly think so. Putting jeans, leggings and joggers to one side, I was keen to discover how fashion people are assembling their jumper-and-trouser outfits for spring in an attempt to make my own ensembles more polished (though no less comfortable). And what I found was seriously impressive.
From foolproof pairings, including cable-knits with navy strides to the easy way to upgrade the black trousers you used to wear religiously to the office, scroll on to see nine jumper-and-trouser outfits that look beyond chic.
