I live in Paris – and that's how French women knitwear style


With winter just around the corner, my current wish lists consist of cozy cable ties, ribbed polo necks and cashmere sweaters – basically all that will prevent the icy shivers. But big, thin jumpers and thicker layers aren't always easy to pull off and I don't want to stop like a Yeti, 2: the Marshmallow man in Ghostbusters or 3: Joey in that scene of Friends if he wears all his clothes.

When it comes to knitwear, the French seem to have a better time making it look more stylish than most. Maybe it's the way they style it, or the way it falls nonchalantly (or is it effortlessly) off their shoulders, whatever is there, something that needs to be learned. After all, French women themselves are responsible for making the cardigan sexy, even though it was invented in the 19thth century by the Earl of Cardigan, who was apparently a man and a Briton. Here are my key tips for providing heavier layers I borrowed from the French so you can stay warm but not sacrifice style.
