A good grey jumper solves outfit troubles like nothing else. A crew neck knit with a breast pocket and layered over a button-down shirt is always preppy but chic. A ribbed polo neck means you can wear skimpy stuff without freezing your tits off in winter. A lovely cosy grey marl sweatshirt thrown over something glitzy makes sequins daytime appropriate.
I reckon I'm going to have to add this over-sized slouchy Zara v-neck to my collection. Aiming for something that looks like you've borrowed it from a boy is normally a safe bet. I would urge the trying on of knitwear before buying, because store sizing is basically obsolete here; if you want it baggier, buy a much bigger size than you would normally. Equally, if it's drowning you and you'd rather it was a little bit cropped, don't hesitate to buy smaller.
This is the last in my mini-series of posts on interpreting the faux fur and woolly mammoth knitwear trend for IRL and I've come to the conclusion that my general rule is to go more relaxed with jumpers but keep jackets or coats structured to avoid looking like a pile of coats left on the bed at a party. Such insight.
