THERE’S no item of clothing I love more on a chilly weekend than a cosy sweater. My favourite ever is my navy cashmere which I found in the H&M sale at the end of last summer for half price. I felt like I was robbing the store, such was my disbelief at such a bargain.
But a classic cashmere can be dressed up and down, and I will just as often pair it with a pencil skirt for work than tucked into jeans on a weekend.
There are some sweaters though that are more for those laid-back looks. And increasingly, people are wearing their hearts on their sleeves and using their clothes to make a (literal) statement.
So, if you’re in the market for a statement off-duty sweat, look no further than my round-up of what’s new in store this month. Happy shopping!

I have a very similar leopard print jumper from New Look last year (below)……. but so tempted by this one!
I don’t think the embroidered floral trend is going anywhere anytime soon, either, so this one is probably worth snapping up if it takes your fancy!
What I like most about this pair of sweaters is that they can be dressed up or down. Either over a midi skirt with slingbacks would look lovely for a chilly spring Sunday.
