Bright knits for a lockdown lift
Lockdown monotony getting you down? Here's a fun idea: brighten up your Zoom calls (and your mood) with a different rainbow knit for every day of the week.
Make your jumper the statement piece of your outfit by opting for neon bight hues like this cerise-toned sweater. With puffed sleeves and a finely drawn knit it’s bang on trend. Find it at Two Ducks lifestyle boutique in St John’s, Woking.
There’s nothing more snug than wrapping up in a cosy cashmere jumper – and this cobalt blue knit from Guildford’s The Gate Boutique is timeless, classic and chic so will be with you for years.
Go bold or go home (not that we have a choice). Channel 70s chic in this charming cashmere cardigan. Wear buttoned up or over a cami top for a layered look. It’s from Courtyard Boutique in Guildford.
Channel your inner Sixties vibe with this striped lurex cardi from Catwalk Boutique in Godalming. In the sale it’s a steal at £59.99, and it’s light enough to see you all the way through to spring. Wins all round!
There’s no happier colour than yellow to brighten up your lockdown blues. We’re coveting this drop-shoulder, mellow shade from & Other Stories. Pure sunshine.
Manifest positive vibes first thing in the morning with this 100% Merino wool jumper, with quirky embroidery, from cult British brand Bella Freud. If it’s scribbled on your jumper it’s a dead cert, right?
