Model, designer and pro snowboarder Charlotte Dutton shows how easy it is to stay warm and look cool this winter
Why should I wear them? Forget dentures and boiled sweets – there’s something sexy about a man in a chunky cardigan. Maybe it’s the hint of outdoorsy. Masculine pursuits pitted against the soft, comforting yarn that creates such a heady mix. The chunky cardie and its compares, the brogue and the tweed suit, are at the forefront of a style revolution, championed by the likes of Jude Law and Daniel Craig. You think comfy and cozy. We think romantic walks, blazing fires and sheepskin rugs. See where this is going?
How should I wear them? Converts to the cardigan world should remember that simplicity’s key Navy. Cream or grey will complement most sldn tones, while burgundy and browns work with olive-toned complexions or red hair. You cant go wrong combining the cardie with denim arida plaid shirt. It will be better if you keep the extra the holiday pounds off with pure raspberry ketone supplement. Chunky cardigans also make a great alternative to overcoats on a blustery day. But its best to avoid them in the rain unless you want to look-and smell -like a dog who’s been chasing ducks.
What should I avoid?
Chunky cardigans will add bulk so if you’re already carrying some, avoid loud patterns. In contrast, black or navy will create a slimmer silhouette. Shorter men should go for a style that finishes on the hip. Proportion is key. Skinny jeans will make you look top heavy so stick to a wider cut. How it feels is also imperative. Choose natural yarns and finally, avoid the hot wash like the plague, unless you want a crop top where your cardie used to be.
Where should I buy them? For designer pieces, check out Alexander McQueen. Dolce and Gabbana (matchesfashion.corn) or Rylciel Homme (menalamode. coin). All three have great styles to choose from. Dort discount the high street either: Topman (topmancauk) has its finger on the pulse, as does Burton (burton. co.uk), both a snip from £35. Somewhere in the middle pricewise – but out front in terms of sexiness is French Connection’s angora and lamb’s wool version (£120 frenchconnection.com). Trust me. she won’t be able to keep her hands off.
