Six Ways to style…

The Classic Black Roll Neck Jumper

One of my favourite things to do is think about ways to style one item in your wardrobe, to show you how to get lots of wear out of investment pieces. This black cashmere poloneck from M&S is £89, a really good price for cashmere and it would work hard in your wardrobe. Hopefully these looks will give you a few ideas of how you could wear it with existing pieces in your wardrobe.

This look is one of my favourites. You can’t beat a pair of leather trousers, pretty flats, a gorgeous knit and a coat. Just add a pop of colour to your dark neutrals with a colourful handbag. This yellow suede cross body bag from Mango is gorgeous and a great price at £35.99. The leather trousers from Andotherstories are also a good price for leather. I haven’t tried them on, so I am not sure about the fit but they would be worth checking out if you are looking to invest. I actually bought the flats from Topshop (£15 in the sale, but I think only size 5 left) and they are comfier than you’d expect.

One of my favourite looks is unstructured, black palazzo or wide leg trousers with white trainers. (I think the trousers should almost touch the ground) If I was tall, I would make this my signature look. It’s timeless, comfortable and effortlessly chic. Sadly, it’s not a look that loves me, but I do love admiring it on others. I have added a leopard print coat here because I think it’s an item every wardrobe should have. The one I have linked is from Dorothy Perkins (now in the sale for £35) but if you have money to invest, then the J Crew one (seen above) is gorgeous. (£330)

I love wearing a black poloneck under a maxi dress in winter. At a modest height of 5’4, I find that maxi dresses drown me if I wear them with flat boots. I do love the contrast of a feminine maxi dress with a masculine biker boot, but I think this look is probably better suited to the vertically gifted among us. I would opt for this suede boot with a heel instead.

This is the kind of look I would go for if I was still working in an office. (Swap the heels for trainers for the commute)

Finishing off with the perfect every day look. It’s stylish yet practical and would take you from the school run, to work, to dinner with ease.

So there we go, one poloneck, six ways. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. I plan to do more like this, so do let me know if they’re helpful in the comments below.

Happy Shopping,

Love Chloe x

    Lovely post. I have the grey cashmere roll neck so will have to adapt! I got the DP leopard print coat in the sale and love it. Wore it scooting to school today and don’t know whether it was my coat, or me scooting that got some funny looks! 😂

    Great post. Thank you. I have that M & S polo – probably one of the hardest working items in my wardrobe and love that you’ve now given me more inspiration. Feeling that I’d also get a lot of use from a navy one as well now 😉
