When it comes to the colder months, we can’t resist the welcoming return of our cosy, chunky knitwear. You may be a summer gal through and through, but the thought of snuggling up in a cream fisherman knit on a Autumn Sunday afternoon in your favourite pub, eating a roast, is certainly a tempting one.
It seems I’m not the only one. I feel as though each autumn and winter, the selection and variety of knitwear on the high-street increases three-fold. From beautifully soft cashmere V-necks to chunky cable knits in a variety of autumnal hues, it can be difficult to know which to add to your wardrobe. Although I don’t think I particularly suit V-neck styles, a slightly over-sized grey V-neck jumper teamed with skinny jeans and dainty gold jewellery works perfectly for an effortless Saturday brunch with girlfriends. While a chunky cream knit – or mustard, another popular colour for this season – is ideal for a long and chilly weekend dog walk.
While my knitwear drawer continues to overflow, I always find myself looking for new pieces to add each season. You could say I’m a little bit of a knitwear fiend, but if you take good care of them – a cool wash cycle and de-bobbler both work wonders – then they will see you through many a cold season!
I’ve selected a few of my favourites that I’ve spotted – and added to my ever-increasing wish-list – below:
Mohair-blend Jumper | H&M | £69.99
With a beautiful array of embellished and wool-blend jumpers at H&M this season, it’s this pretty pastel number which has stolen a top spot on my autumnal knitwear wish-list. Not to mention the ruched-sleeve detail.
Oversized Knit | & Other Stories | £69
Also available in the autumnal hues of burgundy and forest green – this is the perfect knit for those lazy Sundays paired with leather leggings or skinny jeans.
Chenille sweater | Pull&Bear | £19.99
A hugely popular 90s-inspired texture for this season.
Cashmere Roll Neck | Zara | £159
Once the temperatures start to drop, a cashmere knit is the perfect way to stay warm and toasty.
Decorative appliqué sweater | Mango | £39.99
With Halloween and Guy Fawkes now behind us, this jumper will leave you feeling perfectly festive!
