Aran Flashback

With a splinter chill in the air, grandad jumpers have reversed their old age to become freshly in use again by me. This year though I don't just want to rely on a kooky retro print to carry off the thick knit; instead I've looked for ways of layering such jumpers without looking like a suffocated 'winter-phobic.' Carolina Herrera skilfully silhouettes fuzzy jumpers for sharp city professionals, while 830 Sign enhance the texture with inside out and metallic cobweb threads. But to really transform and test the aran knit that I hold comfort in, I've taken inspiration from upcoming designer Domingo Rodriguez, wearing an asymmetric jacket over it that lightning strikes in unconventional angles. The snow white of the aran knit clashes boldly with the black jacket to create a comforting juxtaposition. Let me know what you all think, and if you've found new ways of wearing retro jumpers in a modern way.
