It's hip to be cuddly

One of the trends that emerged at the last set of fashion shows back in March was warm, cuddly knitwear. It popped up everywhere from Nicole Farhi and Clements Ribeiro to Amaya Arzuaga and Lainey Keough, who both specialised in knits for this winter. Funnily enough it is not their knits that have created a minor fashion frenzy - complete with waiting lists, and jumper envy. Oh no, it's Jigsaw.

Play your cardies right

The humble cardigan may not be king of the wardrobe but it deserves a place at the top table. Cardigans aren't just something you wear in winter, either, and summer is a perfect excuse to buy one in a pretty colour. However, like all basic pieces, finding the perfect cardigan isn't easy. The fit should be snug (watch out for snug body-fit but baggy arms, which will look all wrong), a V-neck will be more practical for the summer and doesn't look as "buttoned up" and although cotton (Racing Green do some good crew-neck, cotton cardies, tel 0345 331177) is the obvious summer choice, a fine cashmere or silk is good for evening. Beware of cheap synthetic knits which will bobble and snag easily.
