Shirts and fine knit V necks are the perfect winter work solution but the weekend calls for a different mood. Cable knit, Mohair or Shawl collar -  there are plenty of great sweater options that will add interest to your weekend looks. Here are 5 of my downtime favourites. Keeping the chill out never looked this good. 

Cable Knit - I love this version from Ralph Lauren. All the detail but without any bulk. 

Mohair - This fair isle version is not just for Christmas. Great for aprés-ski too. 

Shawl collar - I love the extra detail of the shawl collar on this cardigan

Cashmere - The weekend is the perfect time to stray from your neutral workwear colour palette. 

Hoodie - The hood gives this cashmere a really relaxed and cool look. Layer it under a jacket or gilet. 

If you find smart casual confusing and want to create a cool and contemporary casual wardrobe then I would love to hear from you.
