What better way to spice up your plain sweatshirt than by adding an on-trend print? Not that I have anything against plain jumpers, they are a modern wardrobe essential, but additional detailing can be the difference between a good outfit and a great one.
Through the addition of a printed paisley section to the front and back – which is almost bandanna like in appearance – Christopher Shannon has managed to give the classic grey sweat an instant style update. Paisley has become one of the most popular prints throughout 2012, in no small part due to its roots within the British Heritage scene.
The choice of white on grey was inspired, allowing the printed section to stand out in a subtle, less garish way. It is striking yet completely understated at the same time. Wear with a pair of slim jeans and boots during this transitional autumn season for an easy go-to outfit that will still effortlessly draw attention.
Constructed from 100% cotton, it also makes it easier when looking to play with layers. Utilise it over a simple tee or shirt or go the opposite way and layer it underneath your favourite piece of outerwear, a heavyweight blazer or even chunky knitwear. The options are endless, helping it become a staple that you will reach for over and over again.
The Christopher Shannon Kidda jumper features a regular fit and a ribbed crew neck, cuffs and waist. Available from size XS to XL over at ASOS.
