I've narrowed down my potentials into three different categories. For starters, the checks and plaids.
Then there are the mixed pattern graphic sweaters. These are still present in the spring collections, and I quite like the idea of them as a way to get more wear out of my plain black trousers that always feel like a bit of a fashion cop-out.

And finally, that old fashion staple, for better or worse, the fairisle sweater. I have been searching for one of these with just the right balance of tradition and kitsch for a while now. My favourites tend to be the ones with a nod to tradition in more modern shapes and fabrics.

Hmmm. what to do...what to do.....the search continues, but so far, I am leaning towards the grey mixed print ASOS with the striped sleeves....or do I want more colour? Hmmm....I guess you'll be the first to know. Watch this space.....
