In her column on Fluffy Jumpers-which let's face it, we've all been living in for the past two weeks- Jess Cartner-Morley warns that their time as our sartorial go-to is limited, that the trail of fluff we leave is "fashion's way of telling you the post-Christmas hibernation period is over". When a mere month ago it was hard to see past the fuggy forthcoming swing between cosy knitwear and party dresses, now is the time to get our look together again, wipe the slate clean and perhaps try out fashion's new soft pared back mood. Gone is the austere sharpness of old school minimalism, in its place something inspired by the soft curve of a Givenchy or Balenciaga Spring/ Summer flounce or the delicate twist of a Celine bow shirt.
