The key to hitting your look out of the park where chunky, relaxed-fit sweaters are concerned is to maintain little touches of femininity and balance your silhouette. When Jessica goes big with her topper, she tends to pair it with fitted jeans or trousers and knee-high boots or feminine sneakers.

Fashion editor Ally Dean shares her secrets for styling one of winter's coziest numbers: an oversized knit sweater. For day, throw on a pair of slouchy trousers a cute ear muffs; by night, pair your winter favourite with a flirty skirt and boots.
