Don’t be a last-minute Xmas shopper – if you are still thinking that the festive season is a long way ahead, take a look at the calendar! High street shops are brimming with Xmas colour and decorations, and the wise shopper is starting to plan their present-giving for their nearest and dearest. They’ll be over the moon with a gift of a stylish winter jumper from Next, so check out their top winter warmers for all your presents.
For your favourite man, how about a cool cardigan from the Next collection? Their shawl-collared fair isle cardigan comes in rust or grey with self-coloured buttons, and will provide a cosy cover-up for the chillier days ahead
If he’s not a cardigan man, then how about a chunky jacket or jumper? There’s a great cable-knit roll-neck in the traditional seafarers colour of navy blue, or a thick-knit crew-neck jumper in a choice of autumnal colours – maroon, rust or grey
For a street-smart sister or friend, go for the latest in jackets. Next have a quilted blazer (pictured) in a soft grey which will look great as either leisure or workwear. Worn with a pair of boot-cut jeans and cowboy strapped leather boots or with a tailored and demure jersey dress, it will add style and up-to-the-minute fashion.
Blazer from Next, £55
And for that work colleague who just loves colour and style, they’ll be your friend for life if you surprise them with the Get the Look Tartan cape. Deeply fringed, with practical toggles and a deep collar, they will be as warm as toast, and the proudest fashionista in the office!
After all that present shopping for others, it’s time to treat yourself. A G-star chunky-knit jumper in seasonal holly-red, with a deep roll-neck and thigh-skimming hem might be just the thing for those cooler days. Or cheer yourself up with an outrageously pink Cheap Monday textured knitted crew-neck jumper that will have heads turning. And whilst you’re about it … team it with a pair of skin-tight pink jeans to complete the look.
