What we need are light layers for those in-between days. Here are some perfect options for fresh February and beyond. It’s easy to miss some great sweaters for more substantial pieces like dresses and coats but under-pinnings of all sorts are really important… The silk cashmere scoop jumper in 6 colours, £79; cotton jumper with silk ribs £79 ; the Merino wool Boyfriend jumper, £79. The cotton roll-neck jumper, £79, in Chambray Blue is a great buy for this time of year. I’ve become very interested in all the new fabrics, wovens and knits that are available right now. In fact, although I’m still a cashmere addict, I have moved on with delight to embrace these technical innovations and the moth doesn’t like it so much – always a plus.
