Men's jumpers and cardigans are a timeless classic and an easy-to-wear style with everything from office wear and special occasion ensembles, to sports clothing and casual wear. Not only can knitwear add an informal yet stylish touch to pressed shirts and ties; these pieces are also comfortable to wear all-year-round on their own or layered as a stylish cover-up. Contrasting shades and necklines are key to making this trend a flattering one. Dress down dark V-neck men's jumpers and cardigans with lighter plain T-shirts, while round neck sweaters can be dressed up with high collar shirts. Those who prefer a down-to-earth style should try mixing earthy tones and natural fabrics, such as mustard-yellow woollen V-necks with brown and beige cotton check shirts. Cross-body canvas totes or rucksacks are set to be another reliable trend to set off this combination for a vintage country look. For a distinguished cosmopolitan style, team the latest leather bowling bags with soft polo neck sweaters in plum or navy shades and grey slim-leg trousers.
Men's jumpers and cardigans have been regaining a prominent place in contemporary fashion over the past few seasons, with a resurgence of printed men's jumpers and cardigans from some of the top fashion houses. Channelling vintage chic, these styles combine quirky geometric prints with sumptuously soft wool fabrics for a kitsch individual style with a touch of high-end quality. To pull off the latest trends, these men's jumpers and cardigans are most flattering worn in a figure-hugging fit with buttoned-up shirts, slim-leg trousers and polished leather brogues for the office. Baggier styles are often worked with loose-cut jeans and canvas pumps, for a smart yet casual weekend style.
