4 Genius Jersey Cuts
Written by Lucy Felton
Let’s get straight to it shall we? There’s a shed load of new season jersey landing with the ability to shake up your top-to-toe faster than you can say ‘autumn’. Lucy Felton, fashion journalist and The Lucy Edit blogger, helps you press reset on your collection, one jersey hero at a time.
Whether you’re squeezing in an early morning workout or hitting that snooze button on repeat, an efficient morning wardrobe routine is always high on the agenda. Make it a style that lasts all day and job’s a good’un. So you’ll be pretty stoked to hear there’s a whole heap of jersey newness up for grabs. Key items with the potential to be elevated into smart-casj territory, this lot’s just the thing to meet your daily dressing needs. Here’s four to conquer.
The Bold Hoodie
A classic sports-infused shape with more than a hint of underground edge, it’s easy to see how this must-own hoodie will rule your closet. Take a raw, face-smacking font, throw in a healthy serving of grime-influenced monochrome and you’ve got yourself one superior boxy fit. Make yours work hard by layering it under a blazer and adding desert boots when on-duty.
Printed hoodie £12
The Easy Sweatshirt
Granted, that New York City sweater might look pretty standard at first glance, until you spy the achingly good overlay sleeve detailing. As if that’s not coming home with you. Warm, chilly, dry, washout, add some extra cotton underneath to beat the dressing headache that’s standard procedure with the seasonal switch. You’ll cut the need for any jacket or over-shirt and laugh in the face of this flaky late-summer, early-autumn climate.

The Distressed T-shirt
Next, you’re going to want to make friends with that distressed t-shirt. Reworked with neat minimalist slogan, graffiti font and aged wash, there’s no doubt you’ll take two, three, or more away with you. Just don’t go ignoring their styling potential… Give a retro thrift store wool cardigan a go on top for a nod to the runway. Got to beat the standard jeans-and-tees-for-days uniform, huh?
Double burnout T-shirt £8
The Burnout Tee
Which leaves the grunge-infused and anything but basic LA/NY tee. Burnout holes and a curved hemline are the kind of details only those in the know appreciate. (That’s you, BTW.) Play around with the fit by simply grabbing a couple of sizes up. Not only a sure-fire way to boss your inner hip hop producer alter ego, but pretty much the dream when it comes to comfort levels. A neat waterproof jacket and tapered leg will cement the cool minimalist feels.
And that people, is your jersey head start.
