Styling this seasons knitwear from House of Fraser

Craig of That Dapper Chap styles knitwear from House of Fraser, creating three looks with one sweater.

We all know House of Fraser for it’s wide selection of items for home and fashion and the huge number of designer brands that they offer under one roof. In this post I’m taking one sweater and showing you three different looks that can be achieved.

While this is a sponsored post I’ll be open and honest as always. This season House of Fraser are offering a huge selection of knitwear and there truly is something to suit most tastes. With chunky cable knits, zip necks, cardigans and polo necks in merino, cashmere and cotton I opted for a light grey marl V neck merino sweater by Linea. Available in 24 colours in sizes small through to XXL it’s a hugely versatile jumper. That’s where I come in!

Look 1 – Smart Casual

This first look is one that will take you from office to pub. Add a tie to make it a bit smarter, take it off and you’re date night ready.

 Starting with chunky black leather derby shoes, I added skinny stretch black jeans and a grey and white printed shirt.  The shirt stops it from being bland and adds interest to the look. I wore my top button done up but feel free to undo a button or two to make the look slightly more relaxed.

Look 2 – Weekend casual

Going for all out casual weekend style with the next look I wore the sweater without an under layer. The wool is so soft that you can get away with it and it’s slight stretch make it very comfortable to wear this way.

I added some rip repair jeans and simple white sneakers and completed the look with a Nato band watch, bracelets and a trouser chain to add some additional interest and personality.

 Look 3  – Smart

As the colder weather descends we need to layer up to retain warmth. This sweater is thin enough to wear under a suit without creating bulk and discomfort. I wore mine over a plain white crisp cotton shirt and added a grey herringbone tweed suit.

The red accents lift the look, and the silk bow tie and burgundy leather brogues adds sartorial elements that take it to another level.
