This winter, give your blazers and jackets a break and turn to chic sweaters to look your stylish best. Play up with prints, or stay safe with solid colours, suggests the design team of an apparel brand for men.

The design team at John Players, which offers a fashion wardrobe for men, has shared styling tips for sweaters:

Play it up with prints: Overall prints have become the new trend; be it woven or knits. From jungle to tribal and street graffiti, the prints capture all. Wear these trendy prints with contrasting jeans or chinos to complete the look. Try to avoid accessorising with these pieces as it would not give the desired look.

Solid colours: You can never go wrong with solid colours in your sweaters. With bright, yellow and lime colours in trend this time, such solid sweaters will make you look classy and elegant. Pair it with light coloured trousers to complete the look.

Experiment with fabrics: Sweaters are not synonymous to woollen apparels. Different fabrics make you feel good and help you carry different looks effortlessly. A Cashmere for example is more formal whereas a cotton sweater will give you a comfy feel. You can also try blended synthetic fabrics for the perfect fashion fit.

Collar your wardrobe: With the wide variety of collars available, you can never be bored of your look! V-necks give a more brunch kind of look whereas a high collar gives more of a formal look. The deeper the cut of the V, the more effeminate the sweater looks. So opt for a slight cut v-neck and avoid going for really deep V-necks. When paired with the right fit of jeans, they make the man look taller, lean and stylish.
